Working with Silverlight in Eclipse

Eclipse comes in with a real good development environment for Microsoft Silverlight.
Here’s the link: http://eclipse4sl.org/

The environment works in two modes:
* Pure Eclipse configuration: Wherein you can edit and work with XAML files and in whole Silverlight projects in Eclipse
* Mixed Mode: You can open the solutions created in Eclipse in Visual Studio and Expression Blend also.

For complete installation instructions navigate to:
Installation instructions for Windows and Mac

My applications ran successfully after installing:

  • jdk1.5.0_19
  • Eclipse Ganymede
  • Net Framework 3.5
  • Silverlight 3 runtime
  • Silverlight 3 sdk

Here are some snapshots:
