Installing with your Eclipse instance

The product package that you install using Installation Manager comes with a version of Eclipse, which is the base platform of this product package. If you already have an Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) installed on your workstation, after installing the product, you can add your product package directly to that other Eclipse installation and extend the functions of your Eclipse IDE by installing HCL OneTest™ Embedded from a local update site.

Extending an Eclipse IDE adds the functions of the newly installed product, but maintains your IDE preferences and settings. Previously installed plug-ins are also still available.

In most cases, your current Eclipse IDE must be the same version as the Eclipse that the product you are installing uses. For more information about installing the product inside an existing Eclipse IDE, see the page 'Installing the product from an update site'.
