Eclipse PDT and JSEclipse on Ubuntu 64

eclipseAround 4 months ago I decided to try out Eclipse and PDT. For a novice Ubuntu user it was fairly complicated and the 64bit version only added to the fun. Luckily a helpful guide on www.64bitjungle.com showed me the way.

PDT v2.0 was released on the 29th December and after reading some good things and how much easier it is to setup I decided to upgrade. I turned again to 64bitjungle and followed this tutorial. The process was much quicker, they have really improved the install for 64bit Users.

I also like to use the JSEclipse, it provides features you would expect, like code completion, syntax highlighting, library support (dojo etc.) and error reporting. To make it easier add the following URL to Eclipse’s Software Updates/Addons (Help > Software Update > Add Site).

The experiance was smoother and Eclipse feels likes it’s running quicker. I would definitely recommend upgrading.
