I am struggling to load kafka into eclipse to get started. I have tried to follow the instructions here: https://cwiki.apache.org/KAFKA/developer-setup.html, but I cannot connect to the SVN repo to check-out. A co-worked pulled from github, but I seem to be missing a lot of jars. This post mentions over a hundred jars that I should add to the build path: http://grokbase.com/t/kafka/dev/133jqejwvb/kafka-setup-in-eclipse. Furthermore, I can only get scala 2.10 working in Juno, as the 2.9 version does not seem to install correctly (I cannot find a scala project option with 2.9).
Can anyone provide workable instructions for getting this puppy up and running?
here is a brief about setting up Kafka in eclipse- 3.6.2. with scala IDE installed as a plugin. Scala version used is 2.9
1) follow instructions as described here: https://cwiki.apache.org/KAFKA/developer-setup.html, upto step 2. 2) redirect the output of ./sbt update to some file and grep the file for all the jars that are required. in the build process. 3) Copy the jars that are mentioned as part of the build process in some folder. 4) then follow steps 3-6 from the link: https://cwiki.apache.org/KAFKA/developer-setup.html 5) Put the jars from step 3 in the build path of eclipse for the kafka project, but not including the lower versions of the jars.As mentioned earlier there are some 102 jars. one more important thing to do is not to place zkClient-0.1.jar in the build path but rather choose the zkclient jar that is present in the lib folder. 6) Instead of putting the scala.jar in the build path choose the scala jar that comes bundled with eclipse as scala plugin and add that as scala library. 7) Once the above setups are done, there won't be any further build errors. and the unit tests can be run to get started.

I don't know if anyone else has done that or if there is any indication against doing it but I found that adding the sbteclipse plugin in the project/plugins.sbt to be particularly easy to do and it worked for me. I am only using to look/edit the code but I am not running anything from eclipse though.
