Installing IBM Java SDK into Eclipse Kepler.

I downloaded EclipseDevelopmentPackage from IBM. Now I want to add that
as a repository to the Eclipse Kepler sites and It is not finding what
it wants.

I don't think you add this to Eclipse; I think it's a self-contained
Eclipse + IBM SDK bundle.

I think you started here: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/
and went through the maze to be able to download the SDK, which comes as
a ZIP file named something like
IBM_DevelopmentPackage_for_Eclipse_Win_X86_32_4.6.0.zip (324 MB)

Unzip it. Open the directory with Windows Explorer. Inside there is
the eclipseDevelopmentPackage directories. Drill down. Inside there
are several directories; eclipse, ibm_sdk70, Licenses. Drill into
eclipse. Inside there is an eclipse.exe. Run that. This will fire up
Kepler (4.3.2) The configuration is set up to use the IBM SDK 7.0
directory.

Normally, I'd think you want to use the standard Eclipse for Java bundle
along with the Java SDK that's already on your PC.
http://eclipse.org/downloads/ Is there something special about the IBM
SDK that you want to use? If so, how portable will the application you
develop be?
