Adding Mylyn and PyDev to QNX Momentics IDE

August 14, 2008

A useful extension to Eclipse and therefore QNX Momentics is Mylyn (http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn/). It helps to organize your actual task in the perfect way. Give it a try!

To install it add for IDE 4.5 (Tau) the Eclipse 3.3 update site to Help->Software Updates->Find and install… . Select the radio button named “Search for new features to install” and click Next. Then it is possible to add a “New Remote Site…”.

For most distributions of Eclipse, there should already be a “Europa Discovery Site” defined in the Update Manager. Otherwise you can add the following URL as a remote update site in the update manager.

http://download.eclipse.org/releases/europa/

See Eclipse Help for general information about using Update Manager.

To get the latest version of Mylyn you may add the Mylyn update site, too. This is the necessary URL:

http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/e3.3

Next important extension is PyDev (http://pydev.sourceforge.net). This is the URL for the remote update site:
