Eclipse Setup - Historical Plug-Ins

BASIS plug-ins are supported in the Eclipse IDE, but many versions of the plug-ins work only with specific versions of Eclipse. To install and run the BASIS Eclipse Plug-ins, you must first download and install the appropriate Eclipse. You may have multiple Eclipse installations on one development computer as long as they are installed to separate folders.

This page provides details on historical versions of Eclipse/BDT (all versions older than the current version). For information about installing and configuring the current versions of Eclipse and BDT, please see the BASIS Eclipse Plug-ins web page.
