4. Accept the terms of license agreement and click the "Finish" button.



5. This starts the plugin installation process. You might have to click "OK" button to accept a security warning message that appears in the middle of the installation process.



6. When installation is finished, restart the Eclipse IDE by clicking the "Restart Now" button.
7. Go to the "Project > Properties > Project Facets" menu, and select the "JavaServer Faces" check-box, if it is not selected yet.
