After I got my laptop setup with ubuntu, my desktop started having issues. The main partition quit booting up Windows 2000, so I replaced it with a fresh install of Windows XP. After installing 16 essential security updates, Service Pack 2, 86 MORE security updates, then 2 more security updates, it was time to install Eclipse.
On my laptop, it took me forever to get the correct pieces installed to get some plug-ins I hadn't used before. Whenever one plug-in relied on some other piece, it would just give an error message that "xyz relies on a.b.c.d". (I had the worst time trying to install Subclipse.)
One thing I love about the ubuntu package manager is that if you wanted something that relied on something else, it would give a list of what else it needed to install: "Is this OK? [Ok / Cancel] Why can't Eclipse work like that?
Anyway, rather than hunt down the list of packages again, I figured I'd just copy down the list of Remote Sites I had from the Linux install.
Help > Software Updates > Find and Install > Search for new features to install > Next
With 20 sites, I wasn't looking forward to it until I noticed the "Export sites" button.
Here's the current list of plug-ins I have installed in Eclipse 3.3 (Europa). Just copy this to a file named "eclipse_bookmarks.xml" and import it the next time you have to install from scratch.
I'm putting this here for my own reference, but I figured it might help someone else too. I'll try and keep it updated as I add more plug-ins.
