Installing the PDT on top of Eclipse for Java

I am a Java developer and use Eclipse most every day.  However, as you can see on this blog, I do a fair amount of Drupal work and have dabbled in writing Drupal modules.

A few releases of Eclipse ago, I spent quite a bit of time installing the eclipse PDT project on top of my eclipse for Java installation. I remember it taking quite a bit of time to sort things out.

The other day I sat down to write a Java program to solve a Triazzle puzzle (ask me if you want it) and noticed that the version of eclipse installed on my personal machine was rather dated.  So, I downloaded and installed the lasted version of the Helios release.

I figured I might as well install the PDT on top of it and looked thru my notes on how I did it before.  Well, it turns out that this is a very well supported operation now.

For the simple directions, see the PDT page on the eclipse wiki:
