Download and install the current Java 8 SE Development Kit .
Download the current version of Eclipse – “Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers” – from here. Extract the download to an installation directory similar to the following:
PC: C:\eclipse\neon Mac: /Applications/eclipse/neon
Step 2 – Launch Eclipse
Launch Eclipse and open a (suggested) work space as follows:
PC: C:\project\justify-module Mac: /project/justify-module
Step 3 – Perspectives – Required for Instructor Guided Training
- Close the “Welcome” page if applicable
- Ensure the “Java” perspective is active from Window / Open Perspective / [Other…] / Java
Step 4 – Install Plugins
Note: If you connect through a proxy server you may need to modify Windows / Preferences / General / Network Connections.
Install the following Eclipse plugins from Help / Eclipse Marketplace… using the “Find:” filter. (You can wait to restart Eclipse until all plugins are installed.)
- Build Gradle Integration
- Filter Entry: Buildship
- EclEmma Java Code Coverage
- Filter Entry: EclEmma
Step 5 – Organize Views – Required for Instructor Guided Training
These Java Perspective Views may be opened from Window / Show View / Other…
- Package Explorer
- Gradle Tasks
Step 6 – Download the QuickStart Project

Select Next and Finish.
It may take a few minutes for Gradle to initialize the environment; view the lower right-hand corner for activity. Note: You may want to Project / Clean… / Clean all projects.
