Very long post with suggestions here: http://boards.developerforce.com/t5/General-Development/Install-Eclipse-Juno-4-2-with-Force-com-IDE/td-p/462323

SFDC doc http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Installation states highest supported Eclipse is 3.6 (which is what I use)


Try installing Force.com eclipse plugin with "Install New Software Wizard", and then add org.eclipse.update.ui_3.2.300.v20100512 jars to plugin folder. Worked for me on Eclipse Juno.


You could try this:

Then You should be able to install normally and eclipse will fetch all dependant files from 3.8 version. That works fine also with Force IDE 28.* and Eclipse Kepler

Keep in mind that this configuration is not supported by SFDC
