In order to follow this guide you will need to download Eclipse. Please click the green button below.

Having trouble installing Eclipse? You aren't the only one. For some reason, actually downloading the required programs wasn't enough. Follow this guide.

1: Download the installer

First thing's first. Download the Eclipse installer from our website. You'll want to do that specifically because it will save time down the road. I'll explain later - just trust me.

2: Download the Java Development Kit

You have a couple of options for this. You can download it at another page on our website at http://www.rockybytes.com/java-development-kit or at the official website for the latest versions: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk12-downloads-5295953.html

Please note - if you download the latest versions of the Java development kit, you'll need to download a special Eclipse installer.  If I set it up right, that should be no issue - downloading it from our website should give you said special Eclipse installer.

3: Finally execute the installer

Open up the installer now. From this point forward, it's a very straightforward installation process with a few caveats. Just like usual, you select which location to install it into - pick any location you want. After that, you'll also need to select which versions of Java you're developing. Finally, after all that, it'll install and you can begin coding.
