RMI Plug-in for Eclipse
version 2.0

Updating the RMI Plug-in

There are two ways to update the RMI Plug-in for Eclipse. You can either download the new plug-in version from the website as a ZIP file or use the built in updates mechanism (see below). If you chose to download the plug-in, the installation instructions are the same as for a first-time installation.

The preferred update method is to use the Eclipse update mechanism. Updating is very simple - just follow these steps:

  1. From the "Help" menu chose "Software updates"->"Find and Install..."
  2. Choose the first option - "Search for updates of the currently installed features" and press "Finish".
  3. If Eclipse prompts you to select a mirror - it is for updating Eclipse itself. Pick the mirror nearest to you or the default (first) item.
  4. Now Eclipse will search for updates for all your installed plug-ins. It may take a moment or two.
  1. If a new version of the RMI Plug-in is available, it will appear in the list. Make sure it is checked. You can also update other plug-ins and features along with the RMI Plug-in for Eclipse.
  2. Press "Next".
  3. Accept the license agreement, and proceed with the download and installation.
  4. Restart the Eclipse workbench if you're prompted to do so.
