Favourite Eclipse Plugin Sites

Recent Eclipse problems force me to try other IDEs and diferent Eclipse versions and distributions.

So I finally took the time to create a list of our favourite Eclipse Plugins resp. their Update Sites:

Name, Feature/PurposeUpdate Site URLsFurther reading, Remarks
ADT, integrates Android Developer Tools and plafform sources



Requires Android SDK, too.
Project homepage: http://developer.android.com/sdk/  
For Android developement, I prefer the Android Studio over eclipse.

CDT, C/C++ Developement Tools.

Release: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/8.4

B.e.: https://hudson.eclipse.org/.../org.eclipse.cdt.repo/target/repository

Stable CDT is available within standard repositories.
Milestone and bleeding edge links are from the CDT Downloads page.
CUTE Plugin, C++ Unit Testing Easier(http://www.cute-test.com/updatesite)
Use Help -> Eclipse Marketplace, needs 2 rounds because of Boost part
See on project Homepage: Cute-Test Installation
Eclipse Dynamic Languages Toolkithttp://download.eclipse.org/technology/dltk/updates-dev/latest/See project Homepage: Eclipse Dynamic Languages Toolkit
EPIC, Eclipse Perl Integration

(Seems to be discontinued, but in Marketplace too)

See project Homepage: EPIC homepage
GWT Eclipse Plugin


Adjust site URL to Eclipse version. GWT seems dead, though.
JD, Java Decompiler Pluginhttp://jd.benow.ca/jd-eclipse/update
Afterwards ensure "Class File Editor" is activated for "*.class without source".
M2E, Maven integrationhttp://download.eclipse.org/technology/m2e/releases
Maven integration
Maven Integration for Android Developmenthttp://rgladwell.github.com/m2e-android/updates/
Has some quirks with library projects. Got rather unusable, drove me towards Android Studio.
