Eclipse For Enterprise Edition

The Java EE Tutorial Project is the official site for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 8 Tutorial that is delivered with the Java EE 8 SDK. The Java EE Tutorial teaches and demonstrates the Java EE features that are used to develop enterprise applications. Eclipse doesn't have an 'Enterprise Edition' (the closest thing would be Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers' I guess), nor is there an 'Eclipse SE' (the closest thing might be 'Eclipse Standard' I guess).

Install Eclipse Java Enterprise Edition

To download and install the Eclipse Java Enterprise Edition, complete the following steps:

Go to and under the “Eclipse Packages” tab, click on the “Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers” link. (Make sure you get the “EE” version, especially if you will be using Tomcat as your server.)

Eclipse will prompt you for where your workspace should be located. The workspace is where Eclipse stores your projects. This doesn’t have to be the same folder in which you installed Eclipse, but I like to put it there. Choose your workspace and click “OK.” That’s it – you’re now ready to start coding using the Eclipse IDE!
