Eclipse Oxygen Software for Java 8 Development

Preliminaries for Both Windows and Macs

Eclipse is Java software. If you don't have a Java JDK installed, before proceeding further go here to download and install an appropriate 64-bit Java JDK 8 for your computer. The most recent Java JDK 8 will be fine to use. For Windows installations, make sure that you download the x64 version, NOT the x86 version.

Windows Installation

  1. Enable "Show hidden files and folders".
  2. Download this ZIP archive.
  3. Open the ZIP archive and copy the eclipseOxygen folder to the C:\Program Files folder.
  4. Open the copied eclipseOxygen folder, find the eclipse executable, and place a shortcut to the executable on your desktop.

  7. You're finished.
