Plugins are packaged either as zip files or exploded directories. To install, copy the directory into the eclipse/plugins directory and restart Eclipse. Most plugins will have a short description of this process, telling you which files/dirs to copy.

Oddly, I just searched through the Eclipse 3.1 doco for instructions on how to install/manage plugins, and there's virtually nothing there! (I excluded any hits in the plugin development guide itself...)

Hey Chinedu,
To install a plugin in Eclipse, simply download the plugin which can be in 2 formats , either a zip or a tar file.Extract them using winzip or winrar and then simply copy the plugins folders into C:\Eclipse\plugins directory(or wherever ur eclipse is installed).If you have one more folder in extract by the name Features then copy the same in C:\Eclipse\features folder and simply start the eclipse and you are done.

I hope it helps.
