  2. Install the Plug-In Development Environment in Eclipse.
  3. Install SECollab in Eclipse.

Depending on your Eclipse actual installation, it might happen some plug-in required for Web development are not present. This can be the case for example for javax.activation or javax.mail plug-ins. Such plug-ins can be manually installed using Eclipse Orbit site:
