Comment: Added quick command line options to install Subclipse, Maven M2e plugin, and M2e Extras from Command Line


Optional: Subclipse, Maven M2e plugin, M2e Extras from Command Line (Helios only, requires JavaHL)

Run eclipse executable (eclipse or eclipsec.exe) with the following command line parameters (be sure to change update_1.6.x to match your version of Subversion):

No Format

Optional: Tomcat

Tomcat is a J2EE server on which OpenMRS can be deployed. You will want the core that matches your system specs the closest: probably 32-bit zip or 64-bit zip or bz2 on Linux. If you choose not to install Tomcat, the development-oriented J2EE server, Jetty already installs with Maven and integrates with the Eclipse Run and Debug workflow.
