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


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 Aug 26 '14 at 8:40
  • @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. – Sergej Utko Aug 26 '14 at 8:43
  • i think we have to do manual sync before saving in kepler – Sindoora Aug 26 '14 at 9:01
  • @Sindoora It depends on the Force.com IDE version. In a new version it is set to "work offline" by default. – Sergej Utko Aug 26 '14 at 9:06
  • earlier i used Helios it worked fine. Later on moved to Kepler.It worked great. – Sindoora Jun 15 '15 at 12:21

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