Toolkit for Eclipse

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Toolkit for Eclipse is an open source plug-in for the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The toolkit provides a set of features that help developers connect to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure from within Eclipse. For example, you can use the toolkit to deploy an application to a VM in the cloud by using the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, or upload multiple files to Object Storage with one click. The Compute feature enables you to start a compute instance or restart it if needed. You can also switch between multiple accounts and regions from the Eclipse IDE.

Download: To install the Toolkit, download the toolkit from the releases section on GitHub, then follow the instructions in Getting Started with Toolkit for Eclipse.


To use the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Toolkit for Eclipse, you must have the following:

  • An Oracle Cloud Infrastructure account
  • A user created in that account, in a group with a policy that grants the desired permissions. This can be a user for yourself, or another person/system that needs to call the API. For an example of how to set up a new user, group, compartment, and policy, see Adding Users. For a list of typical policies you may want to use, see Common Policies.
  • A key pair used for signing API requests, with the public key uploaded to Oracle. For more information on generating and uploading keys, see Required Keys and OCIDs.
