Using Callisto Discovery Site

Yeah, I’m one of the guys that has been refreshing the dang Callisto homepage over and over today waiting to get the download. Once it was available I downloaded and installed Eclipse 3.2.

With Eclipse 3.2 running I immediately went for one of the Callisto downloads – the J2EE tools. It might not be obvious to everyone, but you go to Help -> Software Updates -> Find and Install… -> Select “Search for new features to install” -> Next -> check “Callisto Discovery Site” -> and hit the Finish button. An Update Site Mirror box will pop-up. Pick a mirror site and hit OK. Then you can expand “Callisto Discovery Site” and pick a plugin(s) to install.

I’m still not sure why this, Callisto, is so good for Eclipse. I still had to do the above mentioned steps, and further I still had to dig through a bunch of high-level categories looking for the plugins I wanted (WebTools). Either way, I’ve got Eclipse 3.2 and WTP 1.5 installed and running on my machine.
