I want to use Eclipse for software development and testing. Specifically UML, C/C++ and Java, as well as unit testing of the latter two. As I'm using OpenSUSE 12.2, I used YAST/Software/Software Management. This installed the following :-
ecj, ecj-bootstrap, eclipse-swt
However, nothing has shown up in the main-launcher/Applications/Development menus. I tried using (command not found) "cnf eclipse" in a terminal which resulted in "eclipse: command not found".
I then visited eclipse.org and found that there are many different versions, namely Europa, Ganymede, Galileo, Helios, Indigo and Juno.
As my PC is based on an Intel Pentium 4 running OpenSUSE 12.2, I understand that I need a Linux 32-bit version. However, other than that, this wide selection has left me confused.
Could some kind soul please point me in the direction of which version of eclipse I should install ?
Could you also please advise which plugins I need ? I know that I need cdt for C/C++ and jdt for Java. What plugins do I need for UML, and for unit testing of C/C++ & Java ? Will all these plugins be found on eclipse.org or will I need to source some of them from other locations ?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give with this.
