Found a solution to Eclipse problem – and it doesn’t involve Netbeans!
Get this…wait for it…You simply copy multiple version over the top of each other!
That’s right. Grab the latest J2EE version as that comes with all the bells and whistles that you will probably need. Extract it your program files directory. Then pop over to the PDT and grab the latest of that one too if you want to do PHP development. Now extract that over the top of your previous install and agree to all the messages. Start Eclipse and hey presto! you can now develop Java and PHP apps and have access to the database stuff you will also need!
