Hello Marvin,

Well, I think that we'll need much more information here. Anyway, if you're using Windows, just download the zip file, extract it, and you're good to go. There is no installation. I guess that the same goes for Linux and Mac, but I'm not sure. Of course you'll need to have java PROPERLY installed on your system. By properly, I mean that you'll need to have your JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables set correctly.

What do you mean by installing Java API documentation. That's just documentation, and its not installed. If you need to generate java doc from your source code, right click on the project, chose export, choose java doc, and follow the wizard. If you need to assign the java doc of a certain 3rd party library, right click on the library in the project explorer, choose properties, choose java doc location, and complete the wizard. You can also set the java source of 3rd party libraries if you have it.

If this is not what you're looking for, please try to clarify your question.

what i mean is the java api doc itself, i don't know where to configure it in the eclipse thing. unlike in jcreator, it's easy to configure java api doc and just pin it on the right side of the panel..but in eclipse i can't see any option on where i can load the java api doc

If you mean the java doc of the JDK itself, if you are using a JDK and not a JRE, it should be there by default. You can configure which JDK you use from Window>Preferences>Java>Installed JREs.

If you mean that you want to enable Javadoc integration - i.e. when you hover over a standard method, you get it's javadoc from API, here is the method --
