In addition to the above a not well known feature is, that in a eclipse project you can select multiple files using CTRL, then right click on one of the selected resources and select " to server..." in the context menu. That way you will deploy the subselection only, and will not be bothered with a huge list of classes/pages/etc that you have to search for the right files.

I cannot tell of any step-by-step user's guide on the subject. But I will recommend to read carefully the Salesforce documentation like:

  • IDE in the technical library, at the end of the page there are links that lead you to forums and Frequently Asked Questions that might help.
  • Other good place is the Metadata API Developer Guide. You need to understand what you can do with the Metadata API (at the end the IDE plugin use it).
  • Last but not least, be sure to follow the guidelines in Development Lifecycle Guide / Deploying to Production.

I created a tool deployPKG that simplifies the work using the Metadata API. Check out this post : Deploy to Production in 4 Steps
