"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 programaci贸n 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 seg煤n la sintaxis del lenguaje de programci贸n en cuesti贸n, 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.

Adem谩s 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 c贸digo abierto.

What do you dislike?

Entre lo peor, se puede mencionar la nefasta gesti贸n de la utilizaci贸n 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 m谩s completos y utilizados por las empresas de desarrollo software basado en Java, as铆 que se recomienda totalmente su uso, a pesar de la mala gesti贸n de RAM y CPU que realiza. Pero es gratis y est谩 en constante actualizaci贸n gracias a la cantidad de usuarios que trabajan en ello al ser sofware de c贸digo abierto.

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

Se utiliza en nuestro cxentro de ense帽anza y formaci贸n inform谩tica en las materias de programaci贸n como entorno de desarrollo integrado sobre el cu谩l los alumnos pueden implementar sus programas de forma r谩pida, sencilla e intuitiva. Adem谩s 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 aplicaci贸n para mis primeros pasos en Java"

What do you like best?

- Gratuito y de c贸digo abierto con bastantes actualizaciones.

- Instalaci贸n sencilla y posibilidad de instalar gran cantidad de plugins seg煤n las necesidades que tengamos.

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

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

- Muchas opciones de configuraci贸n desde el formateo de c贸digo, como escribir comentarios, etc.

What do you dislike?

En funci贸n del sistema operativo en el que se instala, pueden surgir m谩s o menos complicaciones.

Hecho de menos el idioma espa帽ol en la plataforma, que ayudar铆a a poder sacar m谩s rendimiento a todas las caracter铆sticas que posee.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se agradecer铆a 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 ayud贸 a realizar mis primeros proyectos en java y a detectar los errores tanto de en la estructura del c贸digo como en la compilaci贸n 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.

"Programaci贸n IDE Java superior"

What do you like best?

Eclipse es de c贸digo abierto, es muy f谩cil encontrar soluciones cuando tiene problemas con el software.

Tiene una amplia variedad de complementos e integra el Sistema de Versi贸n que usamos para el control de versiones del c贸digo de Java. El software tambi茅n se actualiza a menudo, y los errores se reparan con relativa rapidez.

What do you dislike?

La implementaci贸n en Eclipse podr铆a ser un desaf铆o importante cuando se trata de copiar y guardar los recursos en el directorio para garantizar que el servidor web interact煤e con el problema.

Tambi茅n se necesita limpiar manualmente los directorios, reconstruir y volver a implementar cuando usa una m谩quina virtual por alguna raz贸n.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hay muchos IDE para varios lenguajes de desarrollo, Eclipse proporciona la base como una de las plataformas m谩s vers谩tiles disponibles.

Dado que de muchas manera, Eclipse es de c贸digo abierto, hay un complemento disponible para cualquier forma de desarrollo. Pru茅balo, porque un IDE general es mejor que varios entornos de desarrollo espec铆ficos.

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

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

Adem谩s, he descubierto c贸mo terminar una gran cantidad de proyectos tanto de negocios como de c贸digo abierto de manera totalmente r谩pida.

"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 m谩s 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 c贸digo como la integraci贸n 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 a帽os iniciar y, a veces, procesar documentos es muy lento o tratar de mostrar consejos. Otra cosa mala sobre este software es la piel. El dise帽o est谩 muy pasado de moda. Creo que necesita algo m谩s elegante para adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos. Una cosa m谩s que no me gusta es el modo de depuraci贸n; es muy horrible y menos intuitivo que el modo de depuraci贸n 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 detr谩s, por lo que tendr谩s un gran software en contin煤a actualizaci贸n 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 desarroll谩bamos de cara a aplicaciones para control y uso de nuestro veh铆culos el茅ctricos, el motivo es el precio, gratuito, y tambi茅n la facilidad de uso para usuarios medios como 茅ramos nosotros. Anteriormente, us谩bamos otros programas que no terminaban de ofrecer todo lo que necesit谩bamos, ya que eran inestables, un compilador menos eficiente o que eran muy caros. Con Eclipse tuvimos todo lo que necesit谩bamos.

"Buena opcion como IDE"

What do you like best?

Tiene muchas funcionalidades y cumple su funci贸n. Adem谩s, ha sido ampliamente utilizado, por lo tanto, hay un gran apoyo, especialmente en stackoverflow, que es b谩sicamente el lugar de referencia para todo tipo de problemas tecnol贸gicos.

What do you dislike?

Es lento en la actualizaci贸n y construcci贸n del proyecto. Tarda mucho tiempo iniciar el espacio de trabajo y tambi茅n cambiar el espacio de trabajo. si necesitas modificar alguna configuraci贸n, es dif铆cil de encontrar e implementar. Se necesita mucha memoria para ejecutarse y, a veces, ralentiza la m谩quina 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 煤tiles y es una de las caracter铆sticas m谩s potentes que ofrece este producto.

Aprender c贸mo aprovecharlo al m谩ximo le dar谩 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?

Utilic茅 Eclipse para los proyectos acad茅micos y en la empresa para la que trabao. Me benefici贸 en t茅rminos de proporcionar una gran biblioteca para las API de Servlets de JAVA y JAVA EE. Es muy r谩pido en caso de programaci贸n. Como proporciona formatos / estructuras para clases, paquetes, etc. me ahorr贸 tiempo y pude completar mi tarea a tiempo.

"Excellence to create your projects and develop at a high level"

What do you like best?

In many aspects eclipse helps in the software development process, has high level tools that allow you to carry out high level projects, has a great development team providing new plugins of great level and with a great variety of utilities that contribute much help at the time of development, you can find great documentation on the network that will help you both to improve the use of the tool and to know how to find and install the plugins that you need for your development, this also with help as ide at the time of scheduling , a debug of great level that helps you to find errors in your code and be able to solve much faster.

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an excellent option for a company because it has a perfect balance for new programmers and experts, highly configurable by means of plugins that will allow you to confiure the tool to your tastes and according to what you need for each project.

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

Have a development environment that is very intuitive and is perfect for both new programmers and the most expert, which is highly confiurable, with a large number of plugins and high efficiency.

"An excellent development tool for multiple purposes "

What do you like best?

Excellent for creating MAVEN projects with different libraries quickly and safely. I like to work with Eclipse when I have to develop very large and robust projects. Easy to use, easy integration with GIT, easy to Install and configure. Eclipse is a free, with powerful Java integrated. Useful for mobile applications, desktop, web, perform services, a program with a lot of potential.

What do you dislike?

some configurations are very cumbersome, and It is a bit limited to develop applications with high graphic content. Needs improvement in performance as it take some time to load and sync the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

is Free, powerful and very useful for JAVA developers. It is easily integrated into multiple development tools as a database, and you can find a lot of informative material on the web

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

Eclipse allows to solve problems of multiple environments, its great capacity and compatibility with Windows, Mac, and Linux devices, it helps the development of many fields, such as web development, mobile development, soa architecture, and creation of applications that satisfy customers with different needs.

"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 caracter铆sticas mas destacables de Eclipse es poder programar en cualquier lenguaje de programaci贸n 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 f谩cil de usar.

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

Sin embargo lo mejor de todo es que Eclipse es de c贸digo abierto y gratuito.

What do you dislike?

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

Algo bueno que tiene Eclipse es que es de c贸digo 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 ejecuci贸n de Eclipse

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aunque Eclipse es bastante amigable a la vista y f谩cil 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 recomendar铆a 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 gesti贸n de aver铆as de automoci贸n o programas de valoraci贸n

"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.

"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.

"The best IDE Java community can get"

What do you like best?

The Best thing about eclipse is it is simple. Although yes it can be argued it is simple for someone who already knows programming but it is here for programming only. Eclipse has got nice Predefined functions which can be used in your code in blink of an eye like getters and setters. We all know how difficult it gets to write getter and setter functions when we have large number of object properties.

Also it has a nice elegant UI. The best part it is open source and so you don't pay for it.

It can also be used for modelling projects like the Business process modelling and notation (BPMN).

What do you dislike?

Yes we do have cons. It is heavy on your memory and CPU when performing large enterprise project execution so it can be slow when your working on a very large project. Plug In installation is tricky and small mistakes may take a lot of time debugging. It supports a lot of languages but then yes for other language types the the support is comparatively less.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are someone who writes java use it. It is the best open source tool out there. As far as support is concerned there is large community which can help you with your issues.

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

It is great for open source Java development and for testing projects. I have experience using it to create Java based selenium test suites for a large project as well as I have used it for Business process modelling purpose as well for some time. It comes very handy when you need something robust. I can get almost everything for my project from apache tomcat connection to DB connections and from maven plug-in to jenkins CI/CD pipeline. It makes project management very easy when it comes to heavy application codes. I have written robust Automation frameworks using it and I am running thousand of automated test cases every other week.

"Eclipse - The Best IDE"

What do you like best?

It is easy to use it with JAVA Project, quite convenient and the best part is it is open source. Easy to import and export maven project.The Code editor feature is awesome and it simplifies the process of editing and working on code. You can also install different Themes to change the look and feel of eclipse. From Eclipse IDE you can build and control the maven option as it provides feature for that. Community support is good and mostly you can find all the solutions of your problems in community.

What do you dislike?

It is slow in updating and building the project. It takes a lot of time in starting the workspace and also switching the workspace. if you need to modify any Configuration it is hard to find and implement. It takes more memory to run and sometimes it slow down your machine and need to be restarted.It is taking time to install different plugin in eclipse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is good IDE as it is easy to use, but try to work on other IDE such as IntelliJ if you face any issue with this. It not only supports java , but also supports other languages such as JS, HTML, CSS,C++, HTML5,php etc. It is best for new developers as it makes it easy for working with different type of code.

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

I am currently using it to build AEM Applications. We use eclipse to build Java projects which we use for our clients.

"Not a great IDE. There are better IDE out there. "

What do you like best?

There is nothing special about this IDE. It is just like some other IDE. In fact there are other IDE such as NetBeans and IntelliJ which are much better than this one.

What do you dislike?

The font size for the project workspace is very small and there is no option to change this. This IDE will make me blind because of the small font for the projects window which appears on the left. Also, there themes are not good compared to other IDEs. The dark theme is too dark and the light theme is too bright. I haven't found a theme plugin which suites me the best yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest to use IntelliJ or NetBeans instead of Eclipse. The UI for this is annoying sometimes.

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

I have been using this IDE for both front end and back end web development including html, css, javascript and java files. The IDE is just like any other IDE so no benefits from using this IDE.

"The best IDE that I have used."

What do you like best?

Eclipse is the best multiplatform tool that I personally feel that covers infinities of functionalities in terms of programming, in addition to allowing me to configure the development environment based on my needs. As a SOA consultant it is of the main tools that I use, it is indispensable to generate my SOA services, it allows me to structure in an organized way the necessary folders according to what I need to do, besides that the interface is friendly.

What I like the most is that your text editor with syntax highlighting adapts to the type of project that I want to develop, when I create one, the perspective appropriate to the type of project being created is opened, with the collection of views, editors and windows preconfigured by default. The coloring of the code in the editor is a fascinating feature, making for it the syntactic recognition of all those words that are reserved in the Java language. With this tool I own my own code without depending on what the IDE generates me, plus it is a very good tool if what we really want is to learn and grow as developers.

Personally I recommend Eclipse because it teaches us to program and makes us really learn on our own, because although the IDE's are good tools that bring us many facilities, in reality what really counts is the quality and excellence that the developer gives. ...

What do you dislike?

It tends to be slow when starting and when compiling, also it embraces too much with servers, for that reason I have to run "clean and build"frecuently. Some configurations are very cumbersome and hard to understand.

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

I am currently using eclipse very often as a SOA Consultant, I require this tool to carry out the SOA services that I am required to perform in my work and with Eclipse I work very comfortably, its interface is friendly and when I make typing errors the editor gives me the suggestion to correct said error. I can compile or execute services in real time to test if it is working correctly what I have developed, in my work we use all eclipse for these reasons since it is more comfortable in that sense.

Additionally, remotely in my home I develop mobile applications and I can simply say that it is fantastic. I think it's my favorite IDE! Keep improving each feature and I know that it will be the favorite IDE of many.

"Excellent open source multiplatform development environment"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is a good development environment where it includes the programming languages such as: Java, C, PHP, JSP ... which is where this IDE is most developed, as well as when developing an ESB, a proxy or XML Eclipse. integrates very complete tools that make us easier to develop and program and where you can integrate a large number of Frameworks and allows you to adjust our development environment to the most optimal for what you want to develop

What do you dislike?

Eclipse sometimes results in a very heavy IDE in Windows, it can become slow, it takes a long time to start. and it can be frozen depends on the computer that is used.

sometimes in developing ESB, a proxy gives us terrors when you want to paste.

in cuato to the development in Java and C would not have any negative comment.

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

At the moment of Developing SOA services Eclipse Indigo is a very good Integration and development tool for any case

"Un buen programa en general"

What do you like best?

Lo que m谩s me gusta es la facilidad que da para programa por ejemplo en java, muy 煤til. Ofrece opciones como debug, ejecuci贸n en tiempo real, integraciones con SOA, plugins, etc. Que son necesarias y se utilizan d铆a a d铆a en la programaci贸n

What do you dislike?

Quiz谩s su peor fuerte es integraci贸n para otro tipos de lenguajes, y que de vez en cuando tiene varios bugs molestos. Por ejemplo a la hora de intregaci贸n con SOA hay diversas partes que no funcionan correctamente como la edici贸n GUI de los xml.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yo recomiendo su uso si la intenci贸n es programar en Java, probablemente la mejor opci贸n del mercado actualmente

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

"My experience with Eclipse IDE"

What do you like best?

There are some very useful productivity related features like versatile templates, quick outline, amazing refactoring support, JUnit 5 integration and things like that. Building java Enterprise Edition projects in eclipse is very comfortable. So i can say if java is your need eclipse is the one who might want to choose.

What do you dislike?

I rarely have problems with it . I find it only crashes if i try to do something unusual with it, like auto format a seven mega byte XML file. I find it little bit irritating when i have to search for a class but that is all related to my patience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend eclipse if you have to build a java Enterprise Edition application. If you are a software tester and wanted to perform unit testing , this is the best IDE for you.

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

As a student, i use eclipse to run all my class projects which are coded in java. I used to do unit testing in java using eclipse while i was an intern. I really love using eclipse Neon version which has all the features required for a java developer like me and if anything is missing you have the option to download the plugin and add it to the project.

"Pretty Descent"

What do you like best?

I like how organized Eclipse screen looks when I'm writing code.

What do you dislike?

I feel like exporting files is always such a struggle for me. Maybe it's because I'm slow at grasping things even after doing it repeatedly, but I sometimes just get confused because there are so many steps to take before exporting something. And also, finding stuff in your eclipse workspace is SUCH a hassle. I don't know whether it's because I have a MacBook and not a windows pc, but it is always painful to find old files in your workspace

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to stay organized with where you save your files in your computer!

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

The main problem that I solve with Eclipse is software development problems. I basically use this program to write and develop Java code, compare code with others, and complete projects quickly.

"My eclipse experience "

What do you like best?

I started using eclipse around 9 years before and was having very nice experience until my current project . Currently using this with GWT project which having lots of issue . But this issue can be easily fixed if you properly configure heap memory in eclipse '-Xmx4096m -Xss3M'

What do you dislike?

Not having very good support for working with GWT applications or GIT application.Eclipse community required to be more active so that together we can provide good support .

Recommendations to others considering the product

I always like to use ECLIPSE .Even right now also I recommend using eclipse because of ease of use and I know lots of shortcut . You can work on more than one app in a Workspace, which contains related configurations like perspectives, bindings, and other preferences you may want to reuse in different projects.

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

Using for web development for various component of application. We are using UI development along with GWT plugin. We also developed entity component by using eclipse.

"Eclipse is a great platform for developing projects in Java"

What do you like best?

The user friendliness of the interface is really nice. It is a great environment for coding. The User Interface is very intuitive even for new learners. There are some drag and drop options available which help to save a lot of time. There are many built in functions available in the form of packages. These built in functions enable taking advantage of reusability.

What do you dislike?

It takes quite a lot time to start the environment. The setup of the software is also quite complicated. It is a time consuming process to install and setup the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very good and intuitive option. Should definitely consider switching to Eclipse.

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

I am currently developing all my Java Projects. I am using the Java swing in to make an application in Eclipse. The intuitiveness of the interface and the easy drag and drop options help save a lot of time.

"By and far the best IDE for (cheap) experts"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is by and far one of the best inexpensive options for Java development on the market. While netbeans is an excellent beginners platform, Eclipse offers the tools that professionals are looking for in addition to the expandability they want in the long term. This is the perfect platform for small to moderate sized businesses that cannot afford a more expensive solution but still want a great IDE.

What do you dislike?

The only downside to Eclipse is that it does not have the best support for working with coworkers- i.e. there are no solutions for cloud deploying software and pushing updates without using git and other solutions. That is the only thing that I could see the team improving on, otherwise the service is excellent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider eclipse only if you are willing to learn the many tools that it gives you

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

Eclipse is what we moved our more experienced developers to, so that they could provide better integrated Java solutions. The benefits that we have seen is dramatically reduced cost associated with distributing development software to our developers, as in the past we have used paid IDEs that perform more or less the same,

"Reviewing Eclipse IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse IDE is the best platform for the JAVA developers. It has all the libraries required. Along with JAVA they have also expanded their platform and introduced Eclipse IDE for C++/C and PHP which is great. Thus, C++/C, PHP developers can also take advantage of Eclipse IDE. I have also tried Eclipse IDE for C++ and had a good experience.

What do you dislike?

All the commands can be auto corrected which is the downside of it I feel as we get less scope to practice the commands on our own. Also various classes, packages along with the structure/format are provided which is again a disadvantage for a student if he/she is trying to learn the programming language. Sometimes it is very slow during the compilation and execution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are JAVA developer just go for Eclipse IDE. It was primarily introduced for JAVA Integrated Development Environment. It is cool, easy to understand and completely programming and user friendly. Also it has support for JAVA EE which contains various enterprise applications like Java beans and other APIs.

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

I used Eclipse for the academics projects and in the company for which I worked. It benefited me in the terms of providing huge library for JAVA and JAVA EE's Servlet APIs. It is very fast in case of programming. As it provides formats/structures for classes, packages etc. it saved my time and I was able to complete my task on time.

"Perfect Java IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is one of the best IDEs for Java. Is an open source tool for Java development, fact that turns it by several teams all over the world. The amount of available plug-ins are amazing and crucial for every software development.

What do you dislike?

The starting up is quite slow. The memory consumption seems to be "heavy". I believe that Eclipse development team is already working to improve this issue.

I also think that Eclipse should support more programming languages and provide more tools to developers, such as Visual Studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to work on different applications (Android, Java) use Eclipse. It's free and it does the job efficiently.

Explore the plug-ins available. There plenty of them, very useful and it's one of the most powerful features that this product provides.

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

At the moment I am developing distribution applications. The application that my team is developing uses a plug-in to move a robot, that is available for Eclipse (leJos).

I am also developing a mobile app and the experience using Eclipse has been amazing due to its plug-ins and friendly user interface.

"Eclipse for SAP ABAP HANA"

What do you like best?

It is easy to incorporate all the SAP ABAP environment with Eclipse - perspective. In a few minutes you can work as in ECC.

What do you dislike?

ADT doesn't remplace SAPGUI, so for any connection to SAP system you've had to cofigura SAP Logon. For some ABAP objects, such DD, Eclipse opens a new SAP GUI windows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse has some advantages: it is free and open source. Can be used to develop applications in different languages such as JAVA, C++, HTML5, PHP, ABAP, etc. The editor is "programmer friendly", there are many options to customize it and to have a great experience (code completion, eextensions and Plugins

Tools, Rich Client Platform)

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

Only one IDE is required in the development team, so we don not need to install any other tool to work. There is a more natural environment working both with JAVA an ABAP languages.

"A must have IDE for Java developers"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is very stable and easy to use integrated development environment (IDE). Especially when it comes to Java development, I think Eclipse is the must have IDE. In fact, not only for java development, but Eclipse has amazing community and support for other programming languages. Quite a few features in eclipse are amazing:

1.) Code refactoring: Eclipse has several features to refactor code. Rename, Move, Change Method Signature, Extract Interfaces, Extract Class and many more. All of them very handy and saves ample of time when you working on a project.

2.) Search: The search features is Eclipse is very vast. The search dialog box has lots of useful features and extensive capabilities. For example you can search for methods, you can search for class, type and many more.

What do you dislike?

I don't really see any issue with eclipse. However, in my experience there are some performance issues with eclipse. I ran eclipse on Ubuntu 16.04 and it takes quite a bit of time to open up and hang very often. In fact sometimes I have to restart my system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will definitely recommend eclipse for Java developers.

"Best for Java development but not ideal for other languages"

What do you like best?

It is nearly configurable in every way and plugs itself into different views very well. There are plugins for all the vital software and has a very active community. You can't expect more for something that is free. Multiple language support and an excellent Git plugin make it suitable for people who prefer to use the same IDE for their programming projects.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes getting the Intellisense and debugger configured correctly can be difficult. Web development features are not quite there which is what I do mostly. It takes a while for it to load up the first time. The UI also has been the same since the beginning and maybe not a bad idea to make it more modern.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many free IDEs out there and some people might not consider the free ones offered by Microsoft as being comparable to Eclipse. Microsoft free versions are improving dramatically especially for those who prefer to program in a Windows environment.

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

I install these on my Linux servers to do some debugging when unexpected issues arise. I also prefer to use Git with Eclipse rather than the command prompt.

"Amazing Coding made super easy"

What do you like best?

Time saving, revenue increasing, easy-to-use product. SOAP notes are compliant. Billing is easy and accurate. Patients love checking in on the kiosk and getting appointment reminders on their phones. This software has already improved our patient satisfaction and retention.

What do you dislike?

The ledger took a little while to understand, but is much more accurate and complete (and easy) now that we received training. No other issues!

Recommendations to others considering the product

No matter what language you use, check if there is an Eclipse link-up, that will allow you to develop the programs in the language, using Eclipse: Haskell, ML, Prolog 懈 GOO 鈥 all of them are supported.

Another huge advantage of using Eclipse is that it provides many tools and frameworks to build your application. They are flexible, so you can do it in several ways according to your requirements. Developers can use the EclipseRT technology to build rich desktop, web, enterprise, and embedded applications, as well as service-oriented architectures (SOA) and applications platforms.

In fact, regardlessly the platform you use, Eclipse acts like an application, made for this platform. When you upload Eclipse, you upload it for your particular platform; it has certain graphic means for every platform. It provides layout and impression, close to original ones, as well as better productivity.

This coherence in layout and impression will give you a big advantage. If you learn navigation through various Eclipse presentations, you will be able to switch from one language or platform to other ones and be sure, that everything works in the same way.

Undoubtfully, developers face some problems, using Eclipse, but it happens with all the products. Some programmers find the ways to break up Eclipse, using a visual editor. Some find Eclipse too slow and 鈥渙verloaded鈥 with functions, they don鈥檛 need. But many of them change their point of view, if they have to debug the code, written by other people. As a whole, their experience has turned out to be very positive and efficient.

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

If you are looking for a reasonably priced, all inclusive program......THIS is for you! Easy to use, complete, accurate and compliant. Great for both a new doctor just starting out, or an established practice looking to improve their overall bottom line and patient satisfaction.

Code Completion, instead of digging through documentation you should be able to tab your way through methods and save yourself a lot of writing

Refactoring, Global Find and Replace is no replacement for good refactoring support, that starts with renaming functions, variables, classes, ... and ends with some of the functionality that you can find in current Java IDE (IntelliJ for example)

Syntax Checking, helping you out with writing correct code while you type

Advantages of IDE:

1. Using IDE will cost you less time and effort .

2.Navigation is made easier.

3.Auto completion- one of the best features , you don鈥檛 have to remember all.

4.Refactoring

5.Error debugging is easy , you can easily navigate to Error line.

6.All files can be viewed and managed at same screen.

7.Organizing you imports.

8.Downloading requires packages at ease.

In addition to these specific Eclipse advantages are:

It is free and open source.

Industrial level of development

It supports many other languages other than JAVA.

Framework integration like Junit and TestNG and other plugins can be done easily.

Since Eclipse tools are open source, they are quickly updated with the latest technology that can be integrated into existing code.

provides reconciled set of possibilities for most of the platforms

鈥 apart from Java, it supports other languages

鈥 many flexible tools and frameworks for building various types of applications

"A well-rounded IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is a very useful IDE because it can be customized for whatever type of project that you are working in, whether it's developing a REST API, Stand-alone java program, Apache Flex, HTML 5, it's all there. It has many useful features, such as type-ahead, easy server setup, free plugins, built in support for source code control, etc. I have used it for over 7 years and it's a go-to tool for any project type or size. Eclipse is also the underlying framework of many specific function IDEs that are out there like Sprint Tool Suite, FlashBuilder, etc.

What do you dislike?

The only negative comment that I have is that it is slow starting up, has been a memory-hog for many years, so make sure you have a pretty big PC/Mac to handle the massive memory consumption. When I worked in Flex development, it was not uncommon to have to shutdown and restart Eclipse every day at least once, just to free up some memory and improve performance.

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

We are able to leverage Eclipse to build solutions for our customers, no matter what the platform. It's free, easy to setup, and has very robust features. If it's not there, then there is probably a plugin/addon for it.

"The evolution of multi platform IDE"

What do you like best?

Talking about Eclise is talking about Java, JavaScript. Initially, it was the best development IDE for Java applications and thousands of developers generated different plug-ins for this IDE to have a lot of power. A platform generated with a community of developers behind so powerful makes it one of the most updated and alive IDE of the current software.

In addition, it is the main IDE for the development of Android applications. If you want to use it to make multiplatform applications for Android, IOs, Windows, etc ... better to use another application. But if your idea is ONLY Android, please do not change the application. It is optimized for its development and is the best option.

What do you dislike?

The negative part is the amount of memory and CPU resources it consumes, if you have several applications open and many projects causes our computer to crash. It does not release the memory correctly when they are closing processes, it is a demand of the users that still is not resolved. The memory leak issue

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please, think about Android application, Java application, Javascript, etc... using just only one IDE. Don't need use more than one IDE opened for you development. And it is FREE !!!!

There are many similar applications in the market, but if an application like this has survived so long, it will be for something. The community of developers behind it supports it.

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

We usually use this IDE to develop COS applications (Intersystems) thanks to the development plugin of this platform. All the functionalities of the IDE as connection with code repositories and other backup systems help us to the development. We have also used it to develop small applications in Java

"Amazing IDE for Java Development"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is, according to me, the best IDE for the Java Developers out there. I love the kind of seamless integration, the code editing and debugging features and the advanced search capabilities. The support is tremendous with the vast majority of Java developers using this as their platform to develop their applications.

I have personally used Eclipse for all my Java applications including Android applications, until Android Studio came along. However, Eclipse is by far my favorite IDE.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is a power packed IDE with a lot of amazing features and this comes at a cost - memory utilization. However, on the bright side the Eclipse development team are trying their best to optimize the software.

Another limitation of Eclipse is that it is not an-all-programming-language-IDE like Visual Studio. I would like to see Eclipse extend it's application to other languages including Python and C#.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product but make sure you have great processing capabilities for it to work seamlessly. Considering it's great features in addition to it being a free software it's probably one of, if not, the best IDEs.

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

I have been using Eclipse ever since my 10th grade for all my personal and professional development. I worked at a financial data aggregation company that used Eclipse as their IDE of choice to do the bulk of the scraping process. I believe that Eclipse is a boon to Java developers who work with huge packages and large number of files due to its extensive searching and debugging features.

"A must have app for developer software"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is very Java-friendly so developing applications on Eclipse has many handy tools for that purpose

it is open-source so if you don't like something, someone has a fix for it. Or you can change it. Eclipse is widely used have many plugin and a huge community that can help everyone.

What do you dislike?

Some of the UI controls are difficult to use, the performances are not always exceptional and have high ram consume. Graphic rendering can take a long time depending on how fast your computer is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse should be used if you are looking for an open-source platform to develop applications, debug it and test app. It main purpose is develop in Java language but by now it have a lot of plugin and extension that make it an universal tool.

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

"Useful Java IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse does a great job of ensuring that development time isn't bogged down by trying to locate the necessary members of a class; the suggestions are relevant and useful.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes refactoring can throw off the ability to suggest class members, and it can be a little slow to catch up with my typing speed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best possible free IDE for Java projects (and perhaps those in other languages as well, though my experience is solely with Java applications). The level of support, number of available plugins, and community lead to a good boost in productivity.

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

The business problem to be solved is efficient Java software development, which Eclipse achieves. I'm typically a user of the Vim text editor, but the productivity benefits provided by Vim are outweighed by those of Eclipse when working on medium to large (and often even small) Java projects.

"All in one place"

What do you like best?

It allows me to program anything, I can also customize it my way, thanks to the fact that I can add everything I want, if I can develop PHP or Android add-ons for that, it has a pretty good debugger that helps me a lot to find the errors

What do you dislike?

Because it contains many libraries and also if you install many add-ons, the execution of the IDE for the first time can take a long time, it is advisable to have it without many add-ons or just have the necessary ones.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is required to have a computer with good features if you want to get the full benefit that this IDE offers.

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

I work with many programming languages 鈥嬧媋t the same time, so this software adapts very well.

I use Eclipse in my daily life as I am a Developer. I have realized there are benefits, on using this IDE when compared to other developers using different IDE's. The Syntax checking is the good thing actually, it can help out writing correct code when you type. Debugging makes the code issues easy with the step by step breakpoints as more we want.
