Which eclipse version best supports Salesforce? Helios? Kepler? or Juno? which one to prefer


2 Answers 2


The easiest way to find out which version is supported is to check it on the Force.com Plugin page:


Prerequisites (for the 26 August 2014)

Java SE Development Kit (JDK), Runtime Environment 7 —the plug-in will fail to load if you don't have the full Java 7 JDK (note: the full JDK is not the default JRE installation on Mac OS X)
Eclipse Juno (4.2) or Eclipse Kepler (4.3) — the 'Eclipse IDE for Java Developers' distribution is strongly recommended

  • Does Kepler supports direct sync with server?

  • @Sindoora You need to check a Kepler documentation for that. If you mean Force.com IDE - yes, it can be in sync with a server. Aug 26, 2014 at 8:43
  • i think we have to do manual sync before saving in kepler

  • @Sindoora It depends on the Force.com IDE version. In a new version it is set to "work offline" by default. Aug 26, 2014 at 9:06
  • earlier i used Helios it worked fine. Later on moved to Kepler.It worked great.

Juno works fine for me. Although I prefer Sublime Text with MavensMate.
