Installation by Hand
If update site doesn't work for you, the plugins can be installed by hand.
- Open in your browser http://caesarj.org/updatesite/0.8.5/
- Download the files
- Go to your Eclipse directory.
- Create the following folders
- Unzip the content of jar files into the created directories
After installing the Caesar plug-in, please
- make the Caesar editor your default editor for the .java file extension (under Window->Preferences->CaesarJ)
- disable "Analyze annotations while typing"
A dialog with these preferences will be displayed automatically, when you switch to CaesarJ Perspective first time.
For larger projects it is recommended to switch off automated build (under Preferences->Workbench) and build manually using Ctrl+B shortcut. For better performance start Eclipse with more memory.
