Installing the Google Plugin for Eclipse Juno in Ubuntu

Installing Google Plugin for Eclipse Juno in Ubuntu
I have been using the Eclipse Indigo in Ubuntu for a long time. Recently, I decided to start with the all new Eclipse Juno. It's faster than the previous Eclipse Indigo and the UI is much much improved. I do most of my developments with Google products like Google App Engine and Android platforms. The following steps could be followed if you want to install the entire Google Plugins for Eclipse Juno in Ubuntu. To avoid the whole mess of downloading and installing together, we'll do all the possible downloading part beforehand and then go ahead with the installation part.


  1. Download Eclipse Juno for Linux.
  2. Download the Android sdk for Linux and extract it. 
  3. Download the latest archive of Google Plugins of Eclipse. Just download and unzip it, don't proceed to installation.
  4. Download the App Engine SDK for Java
  5. We are done with all the offline downloads possible. Now we move on to the installation part. It's a cake-walk if you follow the following steps 'in sequence'.
  6. Start Eclipse, then go to Help> Install New Software
  7. Click the Add button.
  8. In the dialog box that appears add the url below as the Location with the Name field as "ADT Plugin"           
    https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/
  9. Follow the instruction and complete the installation of all the offered packages.
  10. Restart eclipse and go to Window > Preferences > Android > SDK Location and browse to the url where you extracted the Android sdk for Linux ( in step 2 ). Close the window. 
  11. Open the Android SDK Manager from the toolbar ( the icon with the android's head and a down arrow ). Install the Android SDK Platform - Tools and any one of the Android Version APIs ( I installed Android 4.1 ).
  12. When you are done you can follow the remaining steps Google Plugins Install from Archive Guide.
  13. After that open eclipse and choose Window > Preferences > Google > App Engine > Add Set the path to the App Engine SDK package we downloaded in Step 4 and press 'Ok'.

That's it and you are done!

ICFAI Sikkim Distance MBA Review From My Experience

After a long research I joined for the ICFAI distance MBA program in 2012. Now I've completed 2 semesters ( as of 2013 ). I wanted to write this review so that people who are looking for a good MBA program can get a hand-on review about the distance MBA offered by the ICFAI Sikkim. I've been through all the cycles of this program and this review might help you make the right choice about the program. This article presents my own ( and unbiased ) view of the program and is in no way associated with the course provider.


Is the MBA ICFAI Sikkim Approved By UGC?  As per the latest AICTE regulations, a distance education program must have the approval of a joint commission of  UGC- University Grant CommissionAICTE- All Indian Council for Technical EducationDEC- Distance Education CouncilICFAI Sikkim doesn't have this approval (don't get disappointed, it's not over yet). Only institutes and colleges affiliated to a University are required to take AICTE approval. So ICFAI be…

Is MacBook Air Good For Programming / Blogging ?

I'm a passionate java developer who just migrated from a Windows PC netbook ( Dell mini ) to a 13 inch MacBook Air. Before the netbook I owned a Dell inspirion 1501. I'm quite a bit of an avid blogger as well. I purchased Dell mini just as it was launched hoping that it's compact and mobile architecture would solve all of my need as a programmer and a writer. Unfortunately it turned out that it was a worthless device.The rest of the story goes...



Do Not Compare a Netbook With MacBook AirMacBook's astonishing features far exceeds anything that of a normal Netbook.Before
Buying a netbook for programming and blogging was one of the biggest blunders I ever made on choosing a machine.

Building Autonomous Drone with Raspberry Pi and APM 2.8

I am a total newbie to hardware and was pushing my limits to see how far I can reach on with hardware projects (which sparked my interest lately). I have set out on a very ambitions mission to control a drone from raspberry pi.I began the research for this around 2 months ago and had brought a raspberry pi, drone body kit and apm flight controller. The key difference of this project from common drone projects is that I'm trying to avoid the use of and RC and instead use the raspberry pi to control it. 


Hardware Installation Setup:
I am using APM 2.8 and Mission Planner.I am using RPi 3 to control the APM 2.8 via Telem port of APMI am planning to power the apm via the battery to ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)

Now, documenting my steps below:
