Aptana 3 Help

I'm very green to the JavaScript API environment and I'm lost trying to set up my dev environment.

I have Downloaded and installed Aptana Studio 3.0.
I installed GIT and browsed to it when I launch Aptana

Now I'm stuck on the next step: "Install the Dojo code assist using the instructions here."

When I go to the page link - http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/tis/JavaScript+Library+Support

I see the instruction for adding extending support for JavaScript libraries in content assist. Things like:
Dojo ( http://dojotoolkit.org)
ExtJS/Sencha ( http://extjs.com)
Google
jQuery ( http://jquery.org)
3.0.1+
3.0.5+
OpenLayers ( http://openlayers.org/)
YUI ( http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/)

But I'm super confused on how to do this: If I'm interest in the DOJO; the site states Drop the SDOCML file anywhere into your Web Project (feel free to put it in a special folder).

1.6.0: https://raw.github.com/aptana/dojo.ruble/master/support/dojo.1.6.0.sdocml

BUT WHERE DO I DROP IT?? DO I HAVE TO DO THIS FOR EVERY PROJECT OR JUST ONCE??



Also I'm super confused on how to integrate and install the Code Assist plugins for ArcGIS JavaScript API classes. WHere is the ArcGIS JavaScript API plug-in for Aptana Studio and how do you add it????




UPDATE:
So I think I figured out how to add extended support for JavaScript libraries like DOJO but how do you add the ESRI
JavaScript API code assist plug-in so I can take advantage of Auto-completion of source code
Summary of classes, constructors, properties, methods and globals
Parameter hits for constructors and methods?


Please help.
Thanks
Nathalie
