Eclipse is an open source integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. More generally, Eclipse is described as “an open extensible IDE for anything and nothing in particular.” Eclipse provides a robust Java development environment that incorporates popular tools like JUnit. The beauty of Eclipse is in the extensibility of the platform beyond a basic Java development environment through plug-ins.
Remote System Access
Eclipse has remote system access built into it.
To use it with our systems, go to
File –> New –> Other –> Remote System Explorer –> Connection. Select
SSH Only. Use
fred.you_know_the_rest.edu as the host name.
You may need to switch into the
Remote System Explorer view by going to
Window –> Perspective –> Open Perspective –> Other –> Remote System Explorer. The perspective you're currently in shows up in little icons in the upper right hand corner of Eclipse.
Right-click on the connection you just made, and click
Connect, and enter your password. After making a connection, in the left
Remote Systems side bar, you should see something like the image on the right:
You should be able to open the various folders to see your directories. You can drag and drop or copy/paste files from your (local) machine into the remote directories in this Eclipse view.
