Oracle CEP®
Development Environment for Eclipse

The 11.1 release of the tools is based on the 3.3.2 version of the Eclipse platform. The following software is required to run the Oracle CEP Tools:


Requirement   Notes
A JDK 1.6 VM    
Eclipse 3.3.2 and WTP 2.0.2  

The target Eclipse install must include the Eclipse Platform, Java Development Tools (JDT), Plug-in Development Environment (PDE), and Web Tools Platform (WTP).

The easiest way to get all dependencies at once is to get the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (Win32 | Linux). The Oracle CEP Server is not a JEE based server, but this bundle from Eclipse is the one that contains all the necessary dependencies.

For those that have Eclipse 3.3.2 but do not have all the dependencies, see the Installing Further Eclipse Dependencies section on obtaining the rest of the dependencies through the Update Manager.
