Eclipse – How to upgrade from Galileo (3.5) to Helios (3.6)

I needed to work on Tomcat 7 and at that time i was using Eclipse Galileo. So i needed to upgrade Eclipse Galileo to Helios any how to get work done.

So below is the steps which i used to upgrade my eclipse.

To upgrade installed software, do the following:

  1. Help > Check for Updates.
  2. If updates are found, proceed through the install wizard and click Finish at the end.
  3. If you are upgrading the platform itself, when you are prompted to restart it is strongly recommended to do so. A restart many not be required when updating other features, but always select to restart if you are unsure.

Note, to upgrade from Galileo(3.5) to Helios (3.6), you first need to add the Helios software repository as follows:

  1. Window > Preferences > Install/Update > Available Software Sites.
  2. Click “Add”.
  3. Enter
  5. Click “Ok”.

    Thanks for nice help. I’ve SpringSource Tool Suite(STS) installed on Eclipse Galileo. Hence while using above mentioned steps, the repository comes back with version conflict errors.
    Any workaround for it? 🙂
