The first thing you'll need to do is acquire Eclipse, if you don't already have it. The website is the official source for these downloads. In this case, we will be installing the latest version, Eclipse Kepler. It is recommended to download the Eclipse Standard Package. If you have the Java 64-bit JDK, you will want to download the 64-bit version of Eclipse. Extract the contents of the .zip download, which should consist of a folder called "eclipse". Place the folder wherever you would like, change the name if you wish, then open up "eclipse.exe" contained in the folder. Eclipse will ask you to select a workplace, so either accept the default location or select a custom directory. When Eclipse opens for the first time, you should see a welcome screen, which you can close.

We recommend placing your Eclipse workplace on a Solid State Drive (SSD), if you have one, since it will make the application much faster when performing various tasks.
