Now that we already have our Liferay IDE its now time to setup the Liferay Plugin SDK for our Eclipse. Here are the steps:

  1. Download liferay-plugins-sdk. You can download the file in http://sourceforge.net/projects/lportal/files/Liferay%20Portal/6.1.1%20GA2/, For this tutorial we will be using liferay-plugins-sdk-6.1.1-ce-ga2-20120731132656558.zip
  2. Extract the zip file using archive manager.
  3. Open Eclipse.
  4. In Eclipse (with Liferay IDE).  Go to Window > Preferences > Liferay > Installed Plugins SDKs. 
  5. Click Add.
  6. On the Add Liferay Plugin SDK Location. Click browse and select the extracted sdk folder on step 1. 
  7. Select OK and you should see your SDK in the list of Installed SDKs. 

We have now our Liferay plugin SDK in our Eclipse Indigo… 🙂
