Getting IDE to Work

Was exploring a bit of platform by Salesforce and started by setting up the Eclipse IDE. A few key things that I can point out are:

  • Ensure both your Eclipse and the JDK are the same "bit" version (32/64)
  • If you cannot get the "" perspective to appear, instead of adding a vm arg to eclipse ini file, set "JAVA_HOME" and "PATH" system variables on your machine: eclipse should pick it up. I have linked the documentation for setting PATH. You can use the same process for JAVA_HOME
