I coild not find an appropriate forumfor this. Sorry for posting it here. Can anyone help me in installing eclipse for java/jee and jboss under linux and configure to write, java, jee i.e. servlets, jsp,ejb etc programs. Should I install it inmylogin or some other place as aroot?
How to configure it for all paths and class paths and where can i find mysql jdbc driver in linux or I need to download that also.
Installing Eclipse: Download the "Eclipse for Java EE Developers" package. Then see the JBoss Tools docs for installing the JBoss Tools plugin. Those docs also have a number of tutorials to get you started.
For the MySQL JDBC driver, you can download it from the MySQL web site, or get your package manager on Linux to download it. I always get mine from the Maven repository.
Recently I had installed 'Eclipse for Java EE Developers' in my laptop. But when ever I run eclipse.exe, the eclipse workspace loading screen pops up and goes away immediately. I have also installed
(1) Java(TM) 6 update 14
(2) Java (TM) SE Development Kit 6 update 14
in my laptop. But no matter how many times I try, the workspace/ eclipse environment never get loaded.
I even tried by creating a new user and launching eclipse from there. But still it is not working. I was thinking that it may be because I am using Netbeans 9 that is causing this problem, so I had removed it, but still no use!
Please to not post unrelated question at the end of someone else's post. You should have started a new topic, and you should have placed that topic into the IDE forum (http://www.coderanch.com/forums/f-12/vc) - you would have gotten more responses there because the readers of that forum are focused on IDE issues. So please repeat the question there.
