Before you install the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK, do the following:
Make sure that the Eclipse IDE for Java developers is installed on your computer if you plan to work with the Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in. You can download the Eclipse IDE, free of charge, from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads. For a list of supported Eclipse versions, see the Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing Product Availability Matrix.
When you install the Eclipse IDE, make sure to note the installation location on your computer. You need to enter this information when installing the Java Add-in Extensibility SDK.
Note: The Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in is required to perform the tutorial described in Tutorial: Learning to Create Java Custom Toolkit Support. Additionally, it is recommended to use this plug-in to design at least the skeleton of your toolkit support.
(Optional) Make sure that UFT with the Java Add-in is installed on the same computer. This enables the Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in to interact with UFT, enabling you to work more efficiently when debugging and testing your custom toolkit support. For example, if you use the Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in on a UFT computer, you can deploy the toolkit support to UFT for debugging by simply clicking a button.
Note: If you do not install UFT and the Java Add-in before you install the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK, any Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in functionality that requires interaction with UFT will not be available.
