How to update Workspace from Eclipse Luna (Previous release) to Mars?

Step-1

I’m using Macbook Pro so my downloaded package: eclipse-jee-mars-R-macosx-cocoa-x86_64.tar.gz

Step-2

Extract above .tar.gz file and you will see just Eclipse.app file.
Eclipse.app

Step-3

During startup just provide your previous Eclipse’s work space and click ok and you should be all good.
Eclipse Workspace - Luna to Mars
So far all my ~20 projects imported successfully to Eclipse Mars without any issue. Compilation worked just fine. Only thing which I had to do is to just install Apache Tomcat again on Eclipse Mars. If you face any issue while installing Tomcat then follow the tutorial.
