JavaFX Tooling and Runtime for Eclipse and OSGi

You'll need at least JDK 8 installed in your system. Make sure your e(fx)clipse installation uses this JDK when you launch your Eclipse instance!

For the lazy

For the lazy ones who prefer an all-in-one download, we provide preconfigured packages so that you don't have to worry about all the different bits and pieces.

For the ambitious

For those who'd like to assemble their own e(fx)clipse installation based on Eclipse SDK we offer an installation guide which helps you get started.

If you don't want to use update sites but prefer an all-in-one download those downloads are provided by an external website http://efxclipse.bestsolution.at because this distro packages also other plugins not available directly from Eclipse.org (e.g. subclipse).

Since e(fx)clipse is part if the Eclipse Release Train you can install the e(fx)clipse tooling from the Release Train Updatesite (eg Neon, Oxygen) who is already preconfigured into your install.

If you are not familiar with update-sites you can follow the short guide below or use a pre-packaged version
