Hi Shibboleth,

 

To install the Eclipse plugin you first need to have SCA itself installed. During the SCA install wizard you'll be asked if you wish to install any plugins. At this stage you need to select Eclipse. This will create the plugins\eclipse directory under the SCA install. If you don't see this directory please rerun the SCA installer.

 

To install the plugin itself:

1. Start Eclipse.
2. Select Help → Install New Software.

     The Install wizard starts and displays the Available Software step.

3. Click Add.

     The Add Repository dialog box opens.
4. To create a local update site on your file system (as opposed to one on the Internet):
     a. In the Name box, type a name for the local update site.
     b. Click Local, and then browse to the <Fortify_Install>/plugins/eclipse directory. (Make sure that you point to the directory itself, and not the site.xml file).
     In the Install window, the Work with list displays the name and location of your local update site and the Fortify Eclipse Plugins node is listed as available software.
5. Expand the Fortify Eclipse Plugins node, and select the check boxes for the plugins to install.
6. Click Next.
     The Install Details step lists the plugins you selected.
7. To display version and copyright information for a plugin in the Details box, click the plugin name.
8. On the Review Licenses step, review and accept the terms of the HP Fortify license agreement.
9. Click Finish.
     During installation, Eclipse displays a warning that the software contains unsigned content.
10. Click OK.
11. To complete the installation, click Restart Now when prompted.
     After Eclipse restarts, the menu bar includes the HP Fortify menu and the Eclipse toolbar displays the Fortify icon.

 

The process may differ slightly with previous versions of SCA. To find these steps and further details on the Eclipse plugin you can find the Eclipse Plugin guide and all other Fortify docs on our community site at: https://protect724.hp.com.
