Google Plugin for Eclipse

Installing the Google Plugin for Eclipse from a local update archive

As an alternative to installing from the update site, you can also install the Google Plugin for Eclipse by downloading the update site as an archive and installing from it. You may find this alternate approach helpful when Eclipse can't reach the update site, which is the case behind some firewalls (if you know the proxy information, try configuring Eclipse to use the proxy first, see the instructions for Eclipse 4.3, Eclipse 4.2, or Eclipse 3.7)

Note: If you are installing the plugin on a multi-user install of Eclipse, see these instructions before proceeding.

For Eclipse 4.3

  1. Download the latest update site archive for Eclipse 4.3.
  2. Unzip the archive.
  3. In Eclipse, choose Help > Install New Software...
  4. In the "Work with" section, click the Add... button. The "Add Repository" dialog box appears.
  5. Click Local and select the directory you unzipped, then click OK. Its path appears in the "Location" field. Leave the "Name" field empty.
  6. Continue with step 2 of the Google Plugin for Eclipse 4.3 installation instructions, as summarized here:
    1. Select the software components you want (typically the Google Plugin for Eclipse and the Google App Engine SDK).
    2. Click Next to review the list of items to be installed, click Next again to read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish. Eclipse will then install any external dependencies, and add the chosen components to the Eclipse installation.
    3. When asked, restart Eclipse.

The plugin should now be installed!

For Eclipse 4.2
