"IDE for general purposes"

What do you like best?

It has a large community, the graphic interface can be modified to your liking. Highlight the code so that it can be understandable, it is light, pleasant at first sight. I can work with java quietly using this IDE.

It is open source, multiplatform, it can adapt to the development of small and medium applications with different programming languages

What do you dislike?

Being a general IDE, which can be deployed many programming languages, it costs to be submerged within some specific, is not focused for mobile development and this is highlighted as a negative point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The great community that exists for this IDE makes the use very simple, for the basic development is very good, I recommend it for all those who are just immersed in the world of programming, it will be very useful, they will understand it quite fast and can develop and implement different types of languages with this IDE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

E deployed small applications without any kind of problem, zero bugs and the operation is quite fluid, I currently perform in the development of algorithms with the Java programming language. I also used it at the time to develop C / C ++ and a bit of PHP.

"Best general IDE out there. Plenty of customizations and a rich feature set."

What do you like best?

Ease of use, good UI, plenty of customizations and a large community. Plenty of plugins for every feature (Git, Maven, Ant, etc). I also find this to be the best IDE UI in terms of ease of use, color scheming, efficiency, etc.

What do you dislike?

Not the best for Android/iOS development (purpose-built products exist for these), but that is to be expected since this is a generic IDE aimed to fill many use cases, vs a deep dive into a few. Also, this may suffer in terms of frequency of product updates, since this is a community-built IDE, but this isn't a big pain point for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best IDE for general programming purposes. If you develop within a framework (Android, iOS), there may be better purpose-built IDEs out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great basic IDE for any language you choose. Easy to set up, and installation is portable to different computers. I'm using this for PHP webapp development, a Java headless Unix servlet, code deployment to AWS via external scripts, and as a Wordpress configuration editor.

"Awesome freeware! Good for small and medium size projects"

What do you like best?

Its fast and provides extensive 2nd and 3rd level context menu shortcuts.

Awesome plugin support and active community help.

Its free.

What do you dislike?

For huge projects it is really very slow and builds don't go through. They are hung in the middle and requires several restarts and skipping modules which are not a necessity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a very easy and awesome tool to use if you are dealing with around 1000 -2000 files and handful of modules (may be 10 - 20).

For other multi module large enterprise projects please evaluate according to your requirements. Mostly it goes well and I seriously recommend this. Out of my 11 years of development, I have used Netbeans(1 year), IntelliJ(2 years) and Eclipse(11 years). Most of the time I didn't need any tool other than Eclipse. This is because of its support for multiple plugins and ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a Java developer for 11 years and I have been developing web applications, desktop applications and many more stuffs.

Easy to learn and be productive is the biggest benefit. It doesn't eat up memory due to indexing and gives a quick startup.

"Awesome development tool"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is the best IDE which is freeware and support multiple languages. Eclipse is very fast and giver code support which is the best part. we can directly use libraries by just importing it. The best part of eclipse is that it support multiple language and has a large set of libraries which makes our work easier.

What do you dislike?

Now a days Installation take so much time and it require so much dependent software. In older eclipse version it was not taking this much time in installation.

Eclipse website confuse user, which version or which module of eclipse they should use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like to recommend eclipse to my colleges as it is very easy to use, support multiple language and have lot of supportive libraries which makes programming easy.there are lot of sources available for support. We can use eclipse for software development using java,python. Also we can use eclipse for data analytics and for software testing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cost was the major problem due to other software like HP QTP. but eclipse solve this problem. I wanted to automate my VOIP application and network connectivity using python. For this is search lot of software and found pydev in eclipse is very easy to use.

"very useful but outdated now"

What do you like best?

It is opensource. Eclipse is widely used have many plugin and a huge community that can help everyone. You can push your project between clients and work together. The updates and latest build releases come out quickly to fix bugs and ensure compatibility with each Java version update.

What do you dislike?

The updates and latest build releases come out quickly to fix bugs and ensure compatibility with each Java version update.it was help full if it has a explained documentation.Have to remember the short cuts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Every java learner and java user should try Eclipse at least once. you can use this for teaching purpose or learning or implementing purpose or company purpose.Coder and Debugger should try it .it is very fast to use so go for it .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used eclipse to develop commercial software on embedded micros and also for PC desktop applications.Has a lot of manuals and documentations to do everything better.

"Very easy to use and great for learners"

What do you like best?

I found it very simple to start new projects and functions. It has an option for new main functions, saving the time and limiting errors. There are also many additional functions for editing in Eclipse, however these might not be obvious right away.

What do you dislike?

It is not very good for languages other than Java. It has a very cluttered feel to it as well. There are many features that Eclipse has, but people are not aware of them because Eclipse doesn'y do that well of a job at showing them off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use many tutorials when first starting as learning all the features offered are not clear once you first begin. It can be very confusing to use if you did it from scratch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for basic program development. It has many features to make it easier to start new projects and files. I found it beneficial for editing as it is quick to catch syntax errors and helps to make the code look more organized. It also has organizational benefits, making it easier to organize files and projects and quickly find what you are looking for.

"Neon Eclipse Launcher"

What do you like best?

I am using that for python development in my work location. Earlier I am using this launcher for Java development also. So I am with this IDE so long time. And in every new update and new launch it is providing far better solutions and graphical interface. Along with this it has it's own marketplace where you can download different tools which enhance your user experience. Apart from tools in its market place you can download themes for your IDE too.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I dislike is its loading time. It takes too much time to load. Event in updated version takes much time in starting up as well as it consume lots of memory. From this IDE I am just this way dis satisfy.

Apart from that one more point is some how it is complicated. Also some time it looks like IDE is clumsy if your screen resolution is lower than you felt this point and you started discussion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes I am recommending.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am developing different solutions and apps using this IDE. Even i like to use this app's market place too. In my company we are developing code here and functionality provided by them of debugging and developing is amazing. Also from the same IDE I am using different libraries which helps to improve coding. Along with this there are shortcut keys are which are too useful for speedup coding.

"Nice, adequate and strong Java IDE (most importantly free)"

What do you like best?

Eclipse has right from the beginning has strong support for Android developers which is a plus if there is requirement to deal both with enterprise java apps and Android apps. It has adequate support for other JVM languages like groovy, scala and such (along with nice support for python lovers). STS flavor of Eclipse is really good for Spring based Java projects. Pretty decent debugging options.

What do you dislike?

As its a package and not really an installed software, there is really a good chance that the development system has multiple eclipse launchers with multiple different configuration. A single installer with single version would be nice. Also, updates very frequently lead to corruption of current installation by giving strange pop-up windows with no so helpful error messages. Also, some plugins downloaded from Eclipse market place really do not do what is being advertised and possibly should be verified by Eclipse in terms of their stability. No in-built way to create really good class diagrams. Smart suggestions (AI based!) could be a really neat features especially when Java versions are rolled out withing quite short release cycle which could really help cope up with the newer and major features like functional programming, modular programming and such.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As Eclipse is free and have been in market since very long, most of the developers are familiar with its features which serves a common dialogue between colleage's. In this sense, knowledge and familiarity with Eclipse really does help with peers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing Enterprise grade java and Spring based applications. STS flavor of eclipse really has some nice support for spring based java projects. Strong community support in terms of plugin support (though plugins need to be handled with care)

"Excellent IDE to createweb application projects and develop at a higher level"

What do you like best?

It has an great autocompiler and provides a lot of help with all its libraries and modules. Easy integration with GIT. Plugin support is excellent in eclipse. it also supports various servers.

What do you dislike?

There are random crashes while using at high level.It is very heavy.It is pretty hard to install in a MacOS.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is so far the best IDE we have used for developing web applications and writing automation scripts.]it has huge community forums to help with your problems. It is compatible with many other languages, but it works the best with Java, therefore if you are planning to use Java as your primary language, do try out Eclipse.Also, it is available for free, First try trail version.

It does have some setbacks, like it slows at times and needs to be restarted, but it has really made the development process easier in our organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eclipse is being used to develop the Client Web Application at my workplace, where we create CRM for a lot of Foreign and other financial institutions. We have developed our own module that we use on top of Eclipse to help us get the most of eclipse and simplifying our business process.It is great tool to develop web application

"Best open source IDE for Java development"

What do you like best?

It is best suited for development of any kind of Java application whether it can be desktop application or J2EE. It is very easy to use. It also supports other languages too. It has different plugins supported which helps the developer in developing its application faster.

What do you dislike?

It provides support for android development. But it is not that much effective as Android Studio specifically for the development of the android application. There are few occasional bugs too. Apart from this, it is best suited open source free IDE for development of Java application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best suited for developing Java application. If you want to new to Java language or even experienced Java developer then this is the best open source IDE available till now. And it is very easy to use too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it mainly for developing Java web applications. Apart from that, earlier I used to use this IDE for Android development too. It has very good plugins which had helped me in developing better applications.

"Eclipse"

What do you like best?

Eclipse es un excelente software open source y gratuito.

Ha sido creado para facilitarnos la vida en nuestras labores de programación ofreciendo un entorno de desarrollo integrado (IDE) funcional con Java Development Tollkit y su compilador ECJ.

Entre las ventajas que ofrece, tenemos que colorea determinadas palabras según la sintaxis del lenguaje de programción en cuestión, permite realizar pruebas con JUnit, hay un controlador de versiones para que no se pisen unas con otras que se gestiona con sencillez, posibilidad de conectar con base de datos (hibernate), etc.

Además hay multitud plugins que se pueden descargar e instalar de forma adicional elaborados por los usuarios de la comunidad gracias a que es software libre y código abierto.

What do you dislike?

Entre lo peor, se puede mencionar la nefasta gestión de la utilización de los recursos principales del ordenador como el uso de la CPU o la memoria principal del sistema donde se esta utilizando Eclipse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es uno de los IDEs más completos y utilizados por las empresas de desarrollo software basado en Java, así que se recomienda totalmente su uso, a pesar de la mala gestión de RAM y CPU que realiza. Pero es gratis y está en constante actualización gracias a la cantidad de usuarios que trabajan en ello al ser sofware de código abierto.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Se utiliza en nuestro cxentro de enseñanza y formación informática en las materias de programación como entorno de desarrollo integrado sobre el cuál los alumnos pueden implementar sus programas de forma rápida, sencilla e intuitiva. Además no requiere de pagos de licencia, con lo cual se puede decir que esta funcionando muy bien.

"It's a Developer's Friend"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is first friend for any programming developers. It is best at what it meant to be delivered. Eclipse IDE, Oxygen and Neo are the latest and recent versions which got released and it suffices all the needs for the developers of all stages like beginners to intermediate and to experts.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike when it comes to Eclipse. As it always before the developers in updating it's version and provide what we want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is the starting point for any developer and mainly Java related programmers. Also with the latest version of Oxygen and Neo it has many plugins which solves most of the developing issues like auto syntax auto test conditions and compiling suggestions.

And the style auto populations for the front end developers also is way to go use software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Though it is not directly solving business problems, it helps the developers to deliver what business is looking for from Eclipse.

"Is a great developement enviroment "

What do you like best?

It allows continuous integration and allows integration with multiple technologies.

It is an IDE that allows you to develop applications with a multitude of programming languages. The most appropriate is Java, and that is what I use for my application.

You can download different plugins from Eclipse Market that help substantially improve the program.

The eclipse supports different servers to start the application, you do not have the obligation to use only one. There is a long list of servers to choose from.

It also allows the tests with JUnit and Mockito, which are my favorites and I love it.

What do you dislike?

It is a program that occupies a lot of space on the hard drive and weighs a lot. If your project has many files it takes a long time to load.

When you start the application the server takes a long time to boot if your project weighs a lot and often stops working. You have to keep in mind that many cleans of the server must be done and be very patient.

Debug mode does not work fine when the project is great. Ultimately, I think that Eclipse is better for small and medium applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to make a robust and continuous integration application that supports different languages, servers and a large support community, this is your program. It's free and at least worth the try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program in my company to develop a program for a very important client. It is a based program that uses java language as the main language but also has Spring, Angular and Bootstrap technologies. It is an ideal ide for this type of applications and very fast.

"Buena aplicación para mis primeros pasos en Java"

What do you like best?

- Gratuito y de código abierto con bastantes actualizaciones.

- Instalación sencilla y posibilidad de instalar gran cantidad de plugins según las necesidades que tengamos.

- Disponible para muchos sistemas operativos windows, Mac o linux.

- Muy util a la hora de trabajar es el coloreado del código ya que ayudan a identificar las palabras reservadas a java.

- Muchas opciones de configuración desde el formateo de código, como escribir comentarios, etc.

What do you dislike?

En función del sistema operativo en el que se instala, pueden surgir más o menos complicaciones.

Hecho de menos el idioma español en la plataforma, que ayudaría a poder sacar más rendimiento a todas las características que posee.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se agradecería soporte en castellano tanto en tutoriales como en ayudas internas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me ayudó a realizar mis primeros proyectos en java y a detectar los errores tanto de en la estructura del código como en la compilación de los proyectos.

"Eclipse provides multiple platform environment"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is open source, it is very easy to find solutions when you have problems with the software. It has a wide variety of add-ons and integrates the Version System we use for version control of Java code. The software is also updated often, and errors are fixed relatively quickly.

What do you dislike?

The implementation in Eclipse could be a major challenge when it comes to copying and saving resources in the directory to ensure that the web server interacts with the problem. You also need to manually clean directories, rebuild and re-deploy when using a virtual machine for some reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many IDEs for several development languages, Eclipse provides the foundation as one of the most versatile platforms available. Since in many ways, Eclipse is open source, there is a plug-in available for any form of development. Try it, because a general IDE is better than several specific development environments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem that Eclipse is giving me help is in software development. It is mainly used to develop Java code. It's better than developing code in a simple text editor and compiling it elsewhere. In addition, I have discovered how to finish a large number of both business and open source projects completed quickly.

"Opensource IDE to develop any app"

What do you like best?

It comes with a lot of pluggins and additonal modules to complement.

You can change the design of the IDE to youe liking and even the appearance to a darker one.

It allows you to debug and test your code without adding anything to Eclipse. Just put the dependencies of your testing to the pom. Debugging does not require anything is included with eclipse.

Eclipse comes with validations that are super useful to correct little mistakes.

It's very fast to run the server and we usuarlly debug a lot with Eclipse. It's the main feature that we use to find bugs in our app.

All the languages it supports and all the pluggins that there are to complement the ide.

It's opensource and it's free.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Eclipse does not respond if your application is too big. If it has a lot of files to validate eclipse can not validate all at once and crashes. It consumes a lot of system resources.

I do not like that the software is always changing and every now and then is another Eclipse. You have to download it and install your aplication again.

The importing functionality is not user friendly because sometimes does not recognize the projects or eclipse finds conflicts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I really recomend it to begginers and advanced users because is a very useful tool to work with. Eclipse offers a lot of options to develop any aplication object oriented. It supports a lot of languages and you will find a lot of support on internet if yo have any problems.

It's free so is a IDE to take in consideration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Eclipse IDE since I start to program with Java. It's easy to use and very robust. I use it for developing web applications using Spring, Hibernate, JPA, connecting it to Oracla database, and using frameworks like Primefaces.

Also, it can be used for testing which I occasionally use to test with Mockito. We are presently building up an aplication for public administrations. We utilize it to test our localhost enviroments, yet additionally to test the preproduction.

"Ideal IDE for Java and Spring Development"

What do you like best?

There is a long list of features in Eclipse

Supports functionality for Web Services Creation.

It has JSF and JPA tooling for XML editing.

It has JUnit for testing purposes which can come in handy for testing your project once done to test before submitting.

It allows the user to set perspectives in accordance with their needs.

It also has the basic features of IDE like auto code completion, code coloring to separate the keywords and identifiers, etc.

Furthermore, it provides a rich client platform, model-driven tools for EMF and so on the list goes on.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about eclipse it's one of the best IDE available in the market and has its own benefits. However, there are some occasional lags.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a must have IDE for those who are learning Java or Java frameworks. I would also recommend this IDE to developers working in Java programming. It's open source and free to use. Plus it has surfeit amount of libraries and plugins. It's very easy to use and robust. In a nutshell its the daily driver for Java programmer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Eclipse IDE since I was learned Java. It's easy to use and very robust. I use it for developing web applications using Spring and Spring Boot. It has all the necessary integration support needed for Spring like Maven, JAXB, XStream, Castor, Hibernate, JPA, ORM etc. Also, it can be used for testing which I occasionally use to test my projects.

"Eclipse is solid tool, but you have to know what version you need"

What do you like best?

Works across platforms, Mac, Windows, Linux.... is fairly consistent across all of them.

What do you dislike?

Plugin management, while continuing to improve, is still a challenge. Trying to find the correct set of plugins from scratch can be a daunting problem. Best bet is to save off a full config when you have things right...and archive that with code being developed

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lock down a version for at least a development cycle and get tools installed, then archive for all team members to use.

Plan time for upgrades -- It can take some time to get new set of plugins correctly configured.

Don't let every individual developer try to do this, you will overall cost the team a lot of effort...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Works great for developing code, I've used it for Java and C++. Also with the right plugins can be very useful for XML, XML Schemas, and HTML.

"Eclipse is a great IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is widely used with a lot of plugin and a large community that everyone can help. Predefined functions that can be used in your code, such as getters and setters. Many functions are available in the form of packages.

What do you dislike?

It takes a lot time to start a new environment. Outdated GUI and not a lot of support, nor quick updates. Only good for Java.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is one of the greatest Java IDEs out there. It is slow, and not very pretty, but it gets the job done.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for the development of basic programs. I found it helpful to edit because it is quick to catch syntax errors and helps to organize the code more. It also has organizational advantages, making organizing files and projects easier and finding what you're looking for quickly.

"Programación IDE Java superior"

What do you like best?

Eclipse es de código abierto, es muy fácil encontrar soluciones cuando tiene problemas con el software.

Tiene una amplia variedad de complementos e integra el Sistema de Versión que usamos para el control de versiones del código de Java. El software también se actualiza a menudo, y los errores se reparan con relativa rapidez.

What do you dislike?

La implementación en Eclipse podría ser un desafío importante cuando se trata de copiar y guardar los recursos en el directorio para garantizar que el servidor web interactúe con el problema.

También se necesita limpiar manualmente los directorios, reconstruir y volver a implementar cuando usa una máquina virtual por alguna razón.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hay muchos IDE para varios lenguajes de desarrollo, Eclipse proporciona la base como una de las plataformas más versátiles disponibles.

Dado que de muchas manera, Eclipse es de código abierto, hay un complemento disponible para cualquier forma de desarrollo. Pruébalo, porque un IDE general es mejor que varios entornos de desarrollo específicos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El principal problema que Eclipse me está dando ayuda es en el desarrollo de software. Se usa principalmente para desarrollar código Java. Es mejor que desarrollar código en un editor de texto simple y compilarlo en otro lugar.

Además, he descubierto cómo terminar una gran cantidad de proyectos tanto de negocios como de código abierto de manera totalmente rápida.

"The best of its kind"

What do you like best?

Personally it's my favourite Java IDE. This may be because it was the main one I used at University and then for the first 3 years of work. I tried switching to IntelliJ for a couple of weeks but I think it annoyed me because of the muscle memory build up from years of Eclispe shortcuts. Also, Eclipse is leaps and bounds ahead of JDeveloper in terms of stability/usability for me the best one with sublime text.

What do you dislike?

Difficult to install in MacOs and many features are too old like the graphics could be more fresh like sublime text. Requires plugins for Ant and Maven, whereas Netbeans uses them as its native project format. Preferences are part of the workspace and require importing/exporting them and it has a strange work mode of linking projects with the current UI state.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For java developers it is pretty easy to start

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Object-oriented analysis and design

Object-oriented programming and component-based development with Java

Customer service-oriented attitude and top-notch time management

We work with Axon Framework, Event Driven Architecture, Domain Driven Design, Distributed Systems, CQRS

We use it becouse it give us the best feeling and the benefits are good work in less time

"Para aprender Java, el más profesional"

What do you like best?

Este es el mejor entorno de desarrollo integrado (IDE) hasta la fecha desarrollado para Java / J2ee Developers.it admite todos los complementos necesarios para el desarrollo y la calidad del código como la integración de PMD y todo. Esta es definitivamente la mejor ventaja de poder soportar todos los frameworks con el solo uso de jar

What do you dislike?

Lo peor es que el IDE Eclipse es muy pesado. Lleva años iniciar y, a veces, procesar documentos es muy lento o tratar de mostrar consejos. Otra cosa mala sobre este software es la piel. El diseño está muy pasado de moda. Creo que necesita algo más elegante para adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos. Una cosa más que no me gusta es el modo de depuración; es muy horrible y menos intuitivo que el modo de depuración de otros softwares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its great.Take advantage of all the features on Eclipse. There are amazing debugging features which are very impressive coming from a free Java IDE. Tiene actualizaciones con bastante frecuencia y una gran comunidad de usuarios detrás, por lo que tendrás un gran software en continúa actualización y mejora.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fue una de nuestras primeras opciones para el software que desarrollábamos de cara a aplicaciones para control y uso de nuestro vehículos eléctricos, el motivo es el precio, gratuito, y también la facilidad de uso para usuarios medios como éramos nosotros. Anteriormente, usábamos otros programas que no terminaban de ofrecer todo lo que necesitábamos, ya que eran inestables, un compilador menos eficiente o que eran muy caros. Con Eclipse tuvimos todo lo que necesitábamos.

"Buena opcion como IDE"

What do you like best?

Tiene muchas funcionalidades y cumple su función. Además, ha sido ampliamente utilizado, por lo tanto, hay un gran apoyo, especialmente en stackoverflow, que es básicamente el lugar de referencia para todo tipo de problemas tecnológicos.

What do you dislike?

Es lento en la actualización y construcción del proyecto. Tarda mucho tiempo iniciar el espacio de trabajo y también cambiar el espacio de trabajo. si necesitas modificar alguna configuración, es difícil de encontrar e implementar. Se necesita mucha memoria para ejecutarse y, a veces, ralentiza la máquina y necesita reiniciarse. Lleva tiempo instalar un complemento diferente en Eclipse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si necesita trabajar en diferentes aplicaciones (Android, Java) use Eclipse. Es gratis y hace el trabajo de manera eficiente.

Explore los plug-ins disponibles. Hay muchos de ellos, muy útiles y es una de las características más potentes que ofrece este producto.

Aprender cómo aprovecharlo al máximo le dará la posibilidad de trabajar en muchos proyectos diferentes con todas las integraciones de herramientas que pueda imaginar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilicé Eclipse para los proyectos académicos y en la empresa para la que trabao. Me benefició en términos de proporcionar una gran biblioteca para las API de Servlets de JAVA y JAVA EE. Es muy rápido en caso de programación. Como proporciona formatos / estructuras para clases, paquetes, etc. me ahorró tiempo y pude completar mi tarea a tiempo.

For this and more reasons you should try eclipse a high level IDE but also very intuitive perfect for people who are starting to program as well as experts in the field.

What do you dislike?

One of the clearest disadvantages of eclipse is its use to program in java, since it lacks a lot of support for webapps (.war, jsp and servlets), this can be found in other IDEs, and the plugins that try to repair this do not they are so complete or they still have faults in this regard, you must take this into account and depending on what you use you must take care of this.

"A solid IDE to work with"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is a good option when you want an easy to use IDE. It has a decent interface and a great variety of supported plugins and packages. Also, I like the idea of drag and drop feature for the plugins. In genera, solid free option for an IDE.

What do you dislike?

Compared to its competitors, it's poor on design. It gets quite heavy when it comes to start a new project (lots of stuff are loaded) and when a restart is needed after installing new packages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a decent IDE that's worth a try in case you need a free option with a great variety of supported plugins and packages

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Eclipse for test automation purposes. I like how it incorporates all the necessary plugins and packages to create a test automation framework.

It needs a lot of time and effort to learn how to set up a project and use it to its maximum capabilities, but when the optimization is complete, you have a powerfull tool on your hands

"Eclipse Product Review"

What do you like best?

The things I like best is it contains a base workspace and an extensible plug-in system for customizing the environment. I really liked the new version of eclipse which is neon. It has extensions of other development tools. It also offers documentations for usage and it also has debugging of code. It displays methods of a class and very convenient for object oriented programming. It also supports rich client applications.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike is it is very heavy that is installations are difficult. It embraces a lot with the servers and you have to run a lot of clean and build. It has some configurations which are very cumbersome. It is a bit limited to develop applications Which has high graphic content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend the product to others. It is one of the best IDE's for web development. It is very good for starters as it is easy to fix code issues in the shortest amount of time

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems which I solved using eclipse is creating MAVEN projects with different libraries quickly and safely. It helps in easy integration with GIT, the plugin that provides the environment is quite complete.

"Eclipse: Uno de los mejores IDE para programar"

What do you like best?

Una de las características mas destacables de Eclipse es poder programar en cualquier lenguaje de programación que te propongas ya que aunque no lo soporte de forma nativa, existen numerosos plugins que permiten instalar el compilador de cualquier lenguaje.

Para testear las aplicaciones cuenta con un modo debug muy fácil de usar.

Eclipse en sí es muy configurable, lo que permite adaptar el entorno a tus necesidades.

Sin embargo lo mejor de todo es que Eclipse es de código abierto y gratuito.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse es un IDE que ocupa bastante en disco, siempre dependiendo de los plugins que tengas instalados. También usa Java como motor para ser ejecutado lo que implica que en ocasiones se bloquee.

Algo bueno que tiene Eclipse es que es de código abierto, sin embargo esto es un arma de doble filo, ya que como cualquiera puede desarrollar plugins para Eclipse es posible que haya algunos problemas con la ejecución de Eclipse

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aunque Eclipse es bastante amigable a la vista y fácil de usar, es necesario aprender a usar algunas de las opciones del IDE como instalar el compilador que quieras usar pero sobre todo lleva un tiempo aprender a instalar el entorno sin errores. Es bastante potente para un uso principiante-medio, pero si ya eres un experto programando recomendaría usar otros IDE alternativos como NetBeans, IntelliJ o Visual Studio.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Uso este programa para realizar cualquier cosa que me pidan en la empresa como programas de gestión de averías de automoción o programas de valoración

"Perfect programming tool not only for Developers but also for Automation testers"

What do you like best?

Eclipse mostly uses Java and this allows technical people to write developer code as well as automation testing scripts. This also facilitates us default or in-app libraries and also allows us to include JAR files for importing the java class files, directories, image files etc.

What do you dislike?

Not a major point but sometimes we have to re-start Eclipse in order to reset everything up and have to start it back again. Also, bunch of temporary files are created as a result of running the programs and we have to clear it on regular basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am truly a fan of eclipse and definitely recommend this tool to the rest of the world who are belonging to technical aspects of development and/or automation of software tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From business solution perspective, we are automating manual tests by using Java and Selenium and this tool allows us to develope a framework with ease. And the resulting framework consists of all the automated tests and allows us to run them without any human intervention. This is the key benefit of this tool where manual efforts are minimized by implementing automated scripts.

"Great free java development IDE"

What do you like best?

You can develop all type of projects like java projects , standalone application, Web applications and web services. Great integration with various servers. An Integration with Maven and SVN is best in eclipse which helps with software development life-cycle.

What do you dislike?

Does not support type definition in all contexts like java,javascript, html, xml .Very heavy application for web development. Slows down while using in windows10. code completion is not that much smarter

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is best for developing all kinds of Java projects, web-based application, ESB components, standalone application, SOAP and RESTful web services.If you are beginner in java start with this IDE you will love it. Eclipse also gives a great view of the files and documents of projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have developed small projects in academics. I have found eclipse very useful for web application development.

"Versatile environment that is cross platform"

What do you like best?

The fact the tool can be used to develop for a number of different platforms using different programming languages. It is also the basis for a number of embedded platforms which makes it nice to be able to switch between them without a large learning curve.

What do you dislike?

I consider Visual Studio the gold standard and one area where it could be better is in managing projects. I may have a number of shared libraries and want to work on a number of executables that share said libraries which becomes problematic. It can also be cumbersome switching between different CPU architectures for a given project i.e. building for x86 then switching to an ARM platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pretty much can't lose when using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Consistent interface and very decent flexibility on what it can do i.e. support a number of different languages and cross compilers.

"Good plugging and tools but could do with improvements"

What do you like best?

The pluggings and tools are the best features I like. Pluggings such as sourceCodeMetrics and checkit have been very useful in debugging codes. It gives good matrices that can be used in understanding, cohesion, complexity etc.

The cloning from git and version control for written software is also an interesting feature, It simplifies quite a lot of processes

What do you dislike?

The time it takes in loading its packages before opening. It is understandable that you don't have to install it, only the exe and its files are needed to run it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The initialisation of the packages can be made to run in the background after the IDE has opened. The option of which ones run first is always up to the developers. Because the user will hardly start all modules at once, so the most essential packages can be loaded before opening the IDE, and others load in the background.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

mainly used for Research and teaching

"Useful but outdated"

What do you like best?

Has a lot of functionality and gets the job done. Also, it has been widely used, hence there is a lot of support especially on stack overflow which is basically the go-to place for all kinds of tech issues. And it is kind of a jack of all trade for everything related to Java and even C/ C++ including Maven, Android ( although the support has dropped), Ant and even customized libraries.

What do you dislike?

Is buggy sometimes and refactoring can take quite some time. Also, the interface is outdated. Also, there are multiple versions of eclipse and each has its own flavor and then there are a lot of sites where you can download it from. If this could be more streamlined it could be made better. Another thing is that the way to install stuff from the marketplace and configuration of maven stuff always causes problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to learn it well before especially if you are going to use the advanced features. Therefore it is better to just ask someone to get it done for you and also never try to refractor on your own and always use the built-in tools as in my experience doing it on your own never works out and it always causes compilation and runtime issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows refactoring easily and also autocomplete and com[ialtion stuff for java related projects. It can also do a lot of Android stuff although Android Studio has gotten better with that.

"The most versatile IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is the reference IDE across many different disciplines. Being open source, with a huge community that uses and improves it, it's many times the best way to go if you want to make your development environment available for many people. Learning how to get the most out of it will give you the ability to work on many different projects with all the tool integrations you can imagine.

What do you dislike?

Getting to know all the settings and packages needed for development can take some time, but it's a good investment. The setup of new environments could be made easier by generating and importing configuration files that allowed you to mimic other environment settings much faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time to learn how to setup the environment, it is absolutely worth it in the long run.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast integration of new tool-chains and a shared development environment that can be made freely available.
