Eclipse Galileo WebDAV Plugin

As I never remember how to install the WebDAV plugin for Eclipse installations newer than version 3.1 I would like to share the information how to do that:

  1. Download the plugin FTP/WebDAV feature
  2. Unizp the downloaded file
  3. Copy the contents from the folder features to <YOUR_ECLIPSE_FOLDER>/features
  4. Copy the contents from the folder plugins to <YOUR_ECLIPSE_FOLDER>/plugins
  5. Restart Eclipse
  6. In Eclipse, choose from the menu bar Window > Show View > Other ... > Target Management > Site Explorer
  7. The Site Explorer view should be visible now. Right click into the Site Explorer view and choose New > Target Site
  8. From the popup window choose WebDAV, click Next and enter the Server URL, User and Password (in most cases you can leave the Proxy Server URL empty)

That’s it!

    Hi Ed,
    I just tested the instructions with Eclipse Helios – everything worked as expected. I added a screenshot to the article so it might be more evident where to add the Site Explorer view.

    Tried this under 3.6.1 – it doesn’t work (no Target Management view and no Site Explorer showing under windows/show view/other)
