To Install CodeScan you need to do this:

Get Eclipse Helios (3.6) - get the smallest distro you can find:

  • For example: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/heliossr2 You can also do this into your current eclipse environment if you wish.
  • Install SalesForce IDE. You can't do much without this :-).

  • See http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/Force.com_IDE_Installation_for_Eclipse_3.6
  • Similarly, install CodeScan Apex PMD Eclipse Plugin:
