My question is a dual to this one.

I use Workbench 2.0, but I am now interested in developing some Android Apps and Html projects. In order to do that, I need to install Android ADT and Aptana studio plugins into Eclipse. Questions:

  • Since Workbench is based on Eclipse I wonder if I can install these plugins into WB.
  • Is it possible and/or wiser to simply install a (newer) version of Eclipse in a parallel folder and install the plugins into this Eclipse? Would this interfere somehow with the existing Workbench?

I realize this question is not strictly about Mathematica, but I believe it might be of some interest for many Workbench users, as they explore other languages.

  • $\begingroup$ It's probably easier to use Eclipse directly and install the Workbench plugin into it. Use the 3.8 version of Eclipse, not the 4.2 one. Workbench is not compatible with the 4-series. Advantages of using Eclipse are: newer version, and being able to ask for help from Eclipse people (they won't say, "what is this weird thing called Workbench, why don't you use standard Eclipse?") $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jan 25 '13 at 1:52
  • $\begingroup$ I understand this @Szabolcs, that is why I asked if it is possible to have WB and Eclipse living together on the same machine. I already have WB working well with my projects, I prefer not to uninstall it and get the WB plugin $\endgroup$ – magma Jan 25 '13 at 2:02
