NOTE: The plugin requires IntelliJ/IDEA, the plugin does not work on Android Studio.

Install the plugin using the plugin manager

Click the Tools -> Plugins menu option and search for Codename One in the available plugins section. Install it.

NOTE: The plugins.netbeans.org server has been down frequently in the past couple of months preventing automatic installation. Please follow the instructions here as a workaround if the instructions above don’t work.

DOWNLOAD & INSTALL JAVA 8. NOTICE THAT THE NEW ECLIPSE PLUGIN REQUIRES JAVA 8 AND ECLIPSE NEON OR NEWER! INSTALL THE PLUGIN USING ECLIPSE MARKETPLACE

In the menu option help -> Eclipse Marketplace search for ‘Codename One’ and follow the installation process.
NOTE: There’s regression in Eclipse Oxygen 4.7.1a that broke the simulator/debugger. There is a workaround mentioned here. We are working on a long term fix for this with the eclipse team.
