Pulsar - QuickInstall

QuickInstall view

The QuickInstall view enables you to easily manage provider Software Development Kits (SDKs) from within Eclipse Pulsar. In this view, you can install, remove, and view details or more information for available SDKs and providers. The view provides a list of available SDK installers, displays the status of the SDK (Installed or Uninstalled), and the version number.

The QuickInstall view is open by default in Eclipse Pulsar. If it has been closed or is not already open, open it by selecting Window > Show View > Other, and then expand Pulsar and select Mobile SDKs.

To refresh the list of SDKs, click the Refresh button.
