Today, I installed Eclipse on my Fedora 7 desktop. Everything is fine, but the default Eclipse does not have a plugin for JavaScript. So , I searched a lot on Google and read a lot of reviews about some JavaScript plugins available for Eclipse. And I finally reached the JSEclipse plugin by Adobe Labs. I had a good experience with it. Its great to work with and if you are looking for a javascript plugin for eclipse, just don’t search any more and install it. JSEclipse can be downloaded from here after registering with Adobe. Following are the simple steps to install the JSEclipse.

Launch Eclipse and do as suggested in images.

Hi, I downloaded jseclipse_plugin_040207.zip from Adobe site.

I am using Eclipse 3.2 on windows XP for programming , I am not able to add this plugin by above mentioned steps ,

I reached Step 8 where It shows Feature to install as JSeclipse but it shows

Available space as zero kb , requreid as 2300 kb.

I have 23 GB of space empty on the selected location , i tried to change location , but nothing worked , Any reason why this might b happening ?

@Ruturaj Doshi

Its been long time since I used windows … but I guess eclipse will install the plugin to somewhere in your program files … so check out if your drive with windows installation has enough space …

It seems that JSEclipse is no longer alive. Adobe bought Interakt, who apparently created it. They then took it off the Adobe Labs, put it in Flex 3 and “privatized” it. So much for good ol’ open source!
