I am looking into installing Eclipse but I'm having a slight difficulty. Unlike Visual Studio eclipse needs some very odd addons and things that are on their website. Is there just a complete version where I can get everything immediately? I don't want to just keep installing these things in case I need them I just want them all there.
When you download an Eclipse package, say Eclipse for Java or Eclipse for C++, you're simply downloading the base platform with a language specific perspective or set of plugins. Irrespective of which package you downloaded you can always follow the instructions here to install new software.
Just go to
I don't think there's one huge combined download available, but once you've downloaded everything you need you can simply carry the main folder and your workspace around, since the app's pretty much portable in nature (might need to adjust some paths, especially for Java VM or external tools though).
