Eclipse Tutorial


In order to complete your Java programming assignments in CMSC131/CMSC132, you will be using an integrated software development tool (or IDE) called Eclipse. Although Eclipse is a very sophisticated and general IDE, we will only use a subset of its many features in these courses. The following tutorial provides information about installing and using Eclipse.

Important: CVS Plugin and Marmoset Plugin Required. Notice that to use Eclipse in our courses you need to install the Marmoset plugin (allows you to submit projects) and for recent Eclipse releases you also need to add a CVS plugin (earlier Eclipse releases had default CVS functionality).
