First of all, you will need to have a running Eclipse IDE v3.2+.
Nb: Unfortunately, because of a bug, Alveole Studio Eclipse plugin v0.1.0 does not work properly on Eclipse v3.2. You will need at least Eclipse 3.3. For Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede, you will need plugin version 0.2.3+.

Then click "Add site":
For site URL enter "http://mvcwebproject.sourceforge.net/update/".
Select Alveole Studio Struts2 Editor Feature.

svn co https://mvcwebproject.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mvcwebproject mvcwebproject
