Note: If you are behind a proxy server, use the install/update preferences page (under Help-> Preferences) to configure your proxy settings.

Installation by Hand

If update site doesn't work for you, the plugins can be installed by hand.

  1. Open in your browser http://caesarj.org/updatesite/0.8.4/

  2. Download the files
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.8.4.jar
    • plugins/org.caesarj.plugin_0.8.4.jar

  3. Go to your Eclipse directory.

  4. Create the following folders
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.8.4/
    • plugins/org.caesarj_0.8.4/

  5. Unzip the content of jar files into the created directories

After Installation

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"
(under Window->Preferences->CaesarJ)

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.
