Eclipse Juno for Java EE Developers: use the following link to download and install Eclipse, and unzip the downloaded archive anywhere on the local machine (even c:\ is fine, as this will put the tool at c:\eclipse).

Installing Lab Software

Download the archive of lab installer(s):

http://www.capcourse.com/256_Lab_Windows_42.zip

This archive contains one or more self-extracting ZIP files that run a completion script after unpacking. Run each of these; we recommend accepting the default installation path c:\Capstone, especially since multiple courses and other resources can all go to this folder, making things simple for students and easy to clean up after class. However, another path can be selected -- this is most common when the C drive is unavailable or too crowded and another drive or partition is more available.

Finally, get the Eclipse workspace installer from the following location:

http://www.capcourse.com/256_IDE_Windows_42.zip

Install by running the self-extractor(s) found in this archive; unless you installed the above lab images to a non-standard path, be sure to stick with the default target directory c:\Capstone. See the instructor's guide for details on how the overlay works. Please consult the instructor with any questions on use of Eclipse in the classroom.
