"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.

What Integrated Development Environment (IDE) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"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.

"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.

"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?

Programacion java para aplicaciones de escritorio, un cliente necesitaba una aplicaci贸n que llevara un control de una serie de partes de su empresa y gracias a la facilidad que da Eclipse para programar en java este problema fue solventado.

"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.

We are using it for Java development. For most of our Java projects we use Eclipse.

"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

"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.

"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.

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.

"Best IDE"

What do you like best?

As I am a Java Developer, I develop the Java application. It is a hugely flexible tool. It is the most widely adopted IDE for Java Development in this world. Compared to other IDE's it is very easy to use , so I can say that it is the best IDE for all Java Developers. It,s a super Debugging tool, with step by step breakpoints. Even the Freshers can adopt this IDE with ease, I would strongly recommend to my friends, colleagues to use Eclipse.

What do you dislike?

I can say that I don't have any dislikes about this IDE, but I feel still this IDE needs to provide more features when we compared it to the advanced IDE's. As of now, this IDE is cool to use with ease.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend Eclipse to the coming Freshers as they can also use this IDE with ease. It is very helpful for syntax checking, mostly debugging is the best option I feel in this IDE. It is a good refactoring support with renaming functions, classes.

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

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.

"De los mejores IDE que he probado"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que se puede organizar todo de manera muy visual, crear proyectos y organizar los programas nunca fue tan f谩cil. Facilidad para cambiar la interfaz, personalmente prefiero programar con colores oscuros y es muy f谩cil cambiarlos con Eclipse. Tienes mucho margen de mejora y es un IDE de c贸digo abierto y gratuito!

What do you dislike?

En particular la interfaz no me convence demasiado, comparada con otros IDE considero que es m谩s dif铆cil encontrar las opciones como depurar y dem谩s. Otro factor a tener en cuenta es que ocupa demasiado espacio en comparaci贸n a otros

Recommendations to others considering the product

Tomarse un tiempo para conocer bien el programa, cambiadlo a vuestro gusto y la programaci贸n ser谩 mucho m谩s llevadera.

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

Programaci贸n r谩pida y eficaz adem谩s de contar con la seguridad que el propio Eclipse ofrece en s铆.

"My favorite IDE for Java development"

What do you like best?

I like the way things are organized in Eclipse. Developing in Eclipse is easy with its intellisense. And moreover it's debugging tool is quite powerful. This makes programming easier. I love the different skins for ease of looking as well.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes importing projects in Eclipse is a pain because it is very specific about how things are placed in the folder. Sometimes I struggle finding an easy way to just merge two projects and move on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this product to anyone who is starting to program in Java. This IDE is perfect for programmers of any level. I use this on a daily basis and I am very satisfied with it. The intellisense of this IDE helps you use the libraries easily. The errors are specific and helps you understand what changes are needed. You can easily debug the code and find the real time values of your variables.

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

I build in various programming environments including Java, C#, Python, and databases as well. I use eclipse to write algorithms in java application that we are hosting.

"The best option to build software"

What do you like best?

What I like most about eclipse is that I can get a lot of plugin on the internet and this makes it possible to extend the functionalities of the software depending on my needs.

What do you dislike?

The only disadvantage that I have been able to get to this software is that when I am using it I feel that it consumes many resources of my machine and this impede me to execute other additional processes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are learning to program I recommend Eclipse since you can make excellent applications in a very economical way while you understand the programming syntax.

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

In my experience as a programmer I had to develop both applications from scratch as well as continue with developments of other people and eclipse has helped me a lot to understand the code of those jobs left to me by others.

"Excellent IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse IDE is very good for coding Java programs. It is very convenient and easy to use. It has good library support as well. It has git support and word wrap features making it easy to work on many JSON projects too. A number of XML editors and tools, code recommenders and Java Development toolkit is available. Repositories can be easily managed. Also one can work on multiple projects simultaneously. It checks the code while you are writing so that errors can be corrected right at that time.

What do you dislike?

For new users, it might be take time to get used to the IDE as it is a bit complex.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I genuinely recommend people to use Eclipse IDE for coding Java programs.

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

I use Eclipse IDE to code all of my Java projects. It is a great help.

"Eclipse is one of the top free java IDEs."

What do you like best?

I like that it is free! The eclipse market place has many plugin you can utilize.Easy installation- Just download and unzip - No exe. Perspectives- provides Java, J2EE, debug, etc perspective- selecting one will show all the relevant tools. Most used Java IDE: Since its most widely used IDE for Java development, its available for all latest java versions. Auto-suggest, code highlighting, auto code generator are just a few amazing features.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is old compared to other modern IDEs which is a backlash. Too many plugins or extentions to it will make the application slow and sticky. After leaving it open all day it can consume more than 2 Gigs of ram. Also, The occasional crash is not fun.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a must have for entry level folks

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

Writing java libraries with an IDE is helpful to speed up programming. Eclipse helps me in that it lets me easily integrate libraries/frameworks to speed up my development at no cost. Developing a large number of applications (mostly java based): web apps, libraries, back-end services... etc

"Must have IDE for developers "

What do you like best?

I think many people think of Eclipse as a Java IDE, but eclipse is not just Java IDE and can be used to develop applications in many more programming languages than just java. Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) used in computer programming and is the most widely used Java IDE. I like many features eclipse provides to its users. Some of them are:

Free and Open Source: Indeed the best thing of eclipse, its completely free and open source.

Most used Java IDE: Since its most widely used IDE for Java development, its available for all latest java versions. Auto-suggest, code highlighting, auto code generator are just a few amazing features.

Integration with other programming languages: Eclipse provides integration with other languages also. Most of the compiles are inbuilt but other can be installed as its plugin. Some of these languages are C++, Ruby, HTML5, PHP, etc.

Rich Client Platform: You can easily build rich client applications with eclipse which are compatible with native applications.

Refactoring: Code refactoring is a very useful feature of eclipse. Complex code can easily be refactored with a click. Just select the code you want to refactor and click on refactor and eclipse update it at all the places it is being used.

Code Completion: Auto code completion is amazing. You don't need to remember the API names, just type first few letters and eclipse will suggest all related API's.

Extensions and Plugins: Want something in eclipse but can't find? Extension and plugins are the way to go. Eclipse has extensions and plugins for almost everything. If you want to connect to a database but can't find the adapter, you can just install it into your eclipse. Since its open source, you can even develop your own extension.

What do you dislike?

Since Eclipse has a huge community, it can easily become confusing with its endless plugins built by various community members. Also, there are many plugins for the same thing and becomes hard to choose one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would certainly recommend eclipse for every developer.

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

We are using eclipse as a java editor to do our everyday software development. We have various plugins installed to eclipse and make things easier, such as checkin and checkout of a file from source control.

"Easy but old compared to modern IDEs"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is one of the first development software I learnt to use for coding. From my experience it was easy to learn. Also since it is open source, it is easy to find solutions to any problems you may encounter while using eclipse.I feel like Eclipse is very well maintained as bugs and issues are fixed pretty quickly through frequent updates.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is old compared to other modern IDEs which is a backlash. Too many plugins or extentions to it will make the application slow and sticky. I have also noticed that Eclipse takes up a large amount of RAM consequently making other application running at the same time to become slower.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an open sources IDE so it wouldn't hurt to give it a try, specially if you are a beginner.

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

It is a free IDE and I have created many Java, Java Script projects using this software. Usually, I use it for smaller projects. It includes all the required tools hence it makes developing, building and testing codes easy.

Todos los plugins que se le pueden a帽adir permite que enfoques tu desarrollo a casi cualquier tipo de proyecto. El que sea gratis es tambi茅n un gran atractivo. Configurar el entorno tambi茅n es bastante sencillo . Todas las funcionalidades que se pueden conseguir como enlazarlo con tu propio servidor docker y hacer los deploys desde la interfaz viendo los logs.

What do you dislike?

El consumo en memor铆a cuando trabajas con muchos proyectos a la vez. La carga constante de todos los proyectos, aunque puede ser un beneficio, cuando son muchos relentiza mucho el sistema.

"Eclipse has gotten a lot more reliable over the years"

What do you like best?

It's more lightweight than Netbeans or Intelli-J, but lacks some of the features that more advanced IDEs have. Previous versions used to have stability issues, but this is no longer an issue as of the last few years. Overall Eclipse is a pleasant IDE to use, with only a few minor drawbacks over the competition.

What do you dislike?

Most modern IDEs have much more robust code autocompletion as well as UI layout editors. One particularly painful issue that we've run into is the inability to work with Maven projects with non-XML POM file structures.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is somewhat of a standard for Java development, so it's a good starting point for most Java projects.

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

I use Eclipse for all Java code needs that are not Android. Mostly server code, Lambda functions, and command line utility JARs. Would not use this for anything that requires a user interface.

"Good Software"

What do you like best?

When i writing the code this software is automatically give the suggestions. For that i can easily write the code very accurately. It is also importing the packages automatically so that it did the 75% of the work. So that i can save more time. Having good UI and having many shortcuts. If you have a fear regarding code use this software to write the code it will avoid the fear. Because it did the more work and very easy way to develop the applications.

What do you dislike?

In this software all the short cuts are not working. Working with short cuts is very confusing. While running this software in background it stooping the work. Some times it automatically crushing. Taking lot of time to open and taking more time to close even saving all files also.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, I definitely recommend this software to develop the code. Because using this software developer can save the lot of time and avoid too much of hard work. And one more reason is it is very cheep cost. Freshers will be also work on code with less effects so that they choose the more interest on developing code.

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

This is a very cheapest cost. So that i save the lot of amount during developing code. It is very simple and user friendly. Developing of the code using eclipse really we avoid the many syntax errors. So that i can avoid the errors before running the code and execution time also will be reduced.

"it is very nice , built in bug fix. "

What do you like best?

The EMR is the best part of the program. It is easy to master and use. I also love the texting feature of the scheduling module.

I would highly recommend Eclipse to anyone that wants a streamlined EHR experience. The way that the data is organized works extremely well for me. In my opinion the support you get is just as important as the software itself. With Eclipse my experience has been nothing short of 5 stars!

The ease of use is definitely a pro. My staff and myself picked up on the software very quickly and easily. I personally liked the ease of customizing each screen. The software I used before required many screens to be used to create a note. Eclipse does a better job with only a fraction of the screens required. The support has been great. I have only had a few issues, but they were responded to quickly and resolved in the same day, sometimes with in an hour or two.

Handles multiple specialries and group pravtices. Easy to navigate and great support. Cloud and server based versions

What do you dislike?

Cons

The accounting side has some cumbersome aspects. There is a feature to put multiple patients in on a single check but it does not figure the deductible correctly unless you enter each patient individually.

The only con that I have seen with this software is the extra time i have to spend doing my honey do list instead of paperwork.

No touch screen interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

support for more languages

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

i do most of my coding stuff in this software . it is combined with android development kit and gives the best results . i also use it to emulate my android app , i have ADT bundle which supports it .

"Eclipse java IDE"

What do you like best?

I like that it is free! It runs on Linux, Mac, Solaris, and Windows. Shows syntax errors and warnings with highlights that make its easy to find. Debugger is great has the hover over ability to show variable values which is very useful. Eclipse also has a built-in incremental compiler which provides you with real time error reporting. Lastly, The eclipse market place has many plugin you can utilize.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is a resource hog, it can run really slow after long use. After leaving it open all day it can consume more than 2 Gigs of ram. Also, The occasional crash is not fun. We did switch to JBoss which seems better so far.

"Plethora of features"

What do you like best?

The biggest advantage of Eclipse is that it is versatile and along with customization. I have used eclipse for three years when i worked on a Java Application for a client in Tata Consultancy Services. Eclipse鈥檚 multitasking, filtering and debugging are yet other pluses.

What do you dislike?

It consumes a lot of memory so better have a lot of patience if you have average configuration machine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just make Sure that You explore it's all features. Generally people stuck to basics and are very contained in their space. Eclipse has unimaginable power and features which will make your life a lot easier.

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

I think Client -Server applications are easy to deploy in Production like Environment. I worked on a application that is deployed all across USA as it is one of best pharmacies in the country.

"Why to use eclipse"

What do you like best?

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.

What do you dislike?

I didn't find drawbacks in the software. Everything is pretty much included that a developer needs. Integration to GIT I am not sure though which can be one thing that eclipse developer community can pick up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend eclipse as it has a plugin for almost every new language comes on the market.

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

Developing personal projects as well as company codebase for several software projects.

"The good match for Java developers."

What do you like best?

The integration with Maven, the ease of plug in installation like Wildfly, Tomcat, Jrebel, Xrebel...

The ease of integration with JPA to create classes entities from tables or tables from classes entities.

Test testing part.

What do you dislike?

The fact that soemtime Eclipse losses class path beans and we need to refresh mavem modules and sometime the refresh is not working so we need to restart Eclipse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Auto refresh maven module after a build.

Disable xml validation for performance.

Auto import classes to not waste time ( if two classes with same name are found, eclispe will ask which one to choose )

"Eclipse won't overshadow your work"

What do you like best?

Eclipse provides you the tools you need to build software in a very convenient fashion which makes building products easier. Plugins are available to achieve almost anything you need to do to work with the languages, software, extensions that you need for your project.

What do you dislike?

If you have been using eclipse for a long period of time, it can damper your ability to develop outside of eclipse. Command line might become an issue, because of all the things eclipse does for you, you might not be able to develop without it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it, but make sure you do not loose cmd line ability or the ability to work outside of eclipse with things like svn, git, maven, ant, cli, etc.

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

"Eclipse - makes code easy"

What do you like best?

Eclipse has a user friendly GUI, and also many features which will allow the developers to develop many creative applications. Eclipse can also be integrated with servers for web projects.

EMF is Eclipse modelling framework provided by eclipse which will help in generating models and automating many methods instead of writing manually

What do you dislike?

As Eclipse provides so many features, sometimes for huge projects it will take lots of time for launching and debugging. It would be better if we could customize few features to be active as needed by the secific application

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

"Favourite IDE for Java and Spring Development"

What do you like best?

Features like auto completion, line numbers, enhanced search shortcuts to search for resources, substring and lines are amazing. It provides support for a variety of frameworks including Spring, Hibernate which make a developers life easier.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the memory footprint of Eclipse. It requires large amounts of system resources which sometimes leads to crash and loss of work. I hope they work on reducing size and increasing performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this IDE over the latest ones like Atom or Storm as this is time tested and comes with support for lots of plugins. It has great support syntax checking and simplifies debugging a lot. It has great feature for refactoring to renaming and delete entities without causing null pointers in code.

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

Development of large scalable applications has been done with Eclipse software using Java, Spring MVC and Hibernate frameworks.

"Great IDE for Software Development"

What do you like best?

The wide variety of plug-ins offered in Eclipse make development easier. Eclipse makes it easy to access SVN code and manipulate the code with various software packages all in the same platform. The clean layout is also a plus, because it keeps potential high anxiety levels low while developing complex code. I like that the windows can be manipulated in size, and that the window with actual code can be made full screen. Automated error finding is also great in Eclipse and allows me to see places that may be a cause for concern in the code easily.

What do you dislike?

The set up for the Eclipse IDE is not very intuitive, it takes a couple of online tutorials to get used to setting it up. There are also a lot of options available on the Eclipse website without much explanation as to what has changed throughout the versions. I think a guided tutorial might also be more helpful than just displaying a single screen once with the option to exit out. Single screen feels overwhelming, because Eclipse offers so many different options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse makes development easy, especially when developing in multiple languages over multiple projects.

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

Eclipse is great for back-end development and allows multiple software engineers to work on the same code base at once with an SVN plug-in, making development easier and more seamless. Working at a large retail corporation, multiple developers are consistently working on the same code base at once, and Eclipse provides a great place for that to occur.

"Good development software for all programming levels"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this software is the multitude of languages 鈥嬧媔t supports (Java, Python, Ruby, etc.)

It is very useful to create all variation of applications.

It is open source: this means that the code is common, and that the same users improve it day by day. It also means that you have a great community behind you that improves it.

Is free.

Suggestions with the "space" key are very useful.

It allows a great variety of servers to integrate.

You can greatly improve the program with add-ons and plugins, from the interface to the installation of springboot.

What do you dislike?

Is slow. Every time you open eclipse it takes a lot. The more it weighs, the longer it takes to start. The same happens when you open the application and add it to the server.

Normally it stops responding and you have to close processes that remain open in the background.

It is a difficult program to use, and although each day can be improved in the management of the program, mastering it can be very complicated.

every time an update is released, it does not give the possibility to continue with the installed version, but the new one has to be downloaded to use the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It supports multitid of languages 鈥嬧媋nd has a wide community to solve doubts.

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

It helped me when I started taking my first steps in Java programming. The system of organization of colors is very instructive and clear.

What do you like best?

Hi level of customizability and support. The IDE allows for a wide gamut of language support and for full stack programmers this is very important.

What do you dislike?

Memory utilization is not that great in comparison to newer options. The application feels bulky running on a Mac.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think there are now stronger applications better suited to Java Development like netbeans. However the eclipse open source community is very strong. The product is a serious contender in the Java and Java EE field and may be the strongest in the market for J2EE. I have also had to write J2ME applications and this failed miserably.

"One of the best Java and Spring development tools"

What do you like best?

This is one of the best tools to develop applications in Java and Spring. Large amount of resources available, both in libraries and in documentation and community. Once you learn its syntax, they are very easy to alternate.

The Eclipse SDK includes the Java development tools, offering an IDE with an internal Java compiler and a complete model of the Java source files. This allows advanced refactoring and code analysis techniques.

The IDE also makes use of a workspace, in this case a metadata group in a flat file space, allowing external modifications to the files as long as the corresponding workspace is refreshed.

What do you dislike?

Its main drawback, common to other IDEs to a greater or lesser extent, in the consumption of system resources.

It also lacks a lot of support for webapps (.war, jsp and servlets) just like netbeans do. (The plugins are usually not as powerful or as simple as the module that Netbeans comes preinstalled).

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

Create full projects. Handle large amounts of information.

"The best IDE for Java with lots of plugins"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is the most famous Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java. This allows you to search for lots of information, help and tutorials on the Internet. Moreover, you can extend the functionality of eclipse adding one of the available plugins.

I also like the fact of having several projects shared in the same IDE.

Moreover, I like the integration of git with Eclipse.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that eclipse does not include, by default, a plugin for creating graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Instead, you need to search for a specific plugin.

I also miss an installer for Linux instead of moving a directory and creating links by yourself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

1. Learn the basic tools available in Eclipse.

2. Create your shortcuts. With such shortcuts, you can earn a lot of time when programming.

3. Always search for a suitable plugin if you need additional help for your programs.

4. Find out what IDE is used by your workmates or classmates. If they use Eclipse, then they will be able to help you.

5. Search for tutorials about how using Eclipse for a specific thing, such as git, creating projects, shortcuts, etc

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

I use eclipse with my students. Given the wide use of Eclipse, my students can find information and additional plugins.

I also use Eclipse for my own Java programs. Eclipse allows me an easy management of several projects. Furthermore, additional plugins, such as regex for regular expressions, make me easier to write my programs.

"Eclipse Review: "Best free IDE for Java developers""

What do you like best?

Eclipse has many features. However here are some features that I think are best for my needs.

It gives good perspectives on your project.

It has fast compiler since it uses a custom compiler (which can also be used outside of Eclipse), which is often faster than the normal Java Compiler, especially for the incremental compilation

Eclipse鈥檚 Marketplace Client functionality allows users to customize and extend the solution鈥檚 ability and tailor it to their specific development needs.

It's highly customizable thanks to its surfeit library of plugins created by its ecosystem of active providers. The plugins provide real value and enable Eclipse to work with different Java files, Graphics, videos, and web content.

Other main Eclipse features include XML editing, code recommendation, Apache Maven integration, Git version control, Gradle support, Eclipse marketplace, etc.

And last but not least eclipse is open source and free to use.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is the best IDE for Java development hands down. There is a bit of learning curve for beginners and those who shift from text editors. Plug-in installation is tricky and if wrongly installed can cause the chain reaction of errors. It can sometimes run heavy on your system and the initial loading time can be annoying to some. Apart from the cons (which aren't much,), you won't find any IDE that works as good as this one with Java.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend eclipse to all who want to work with JAVA.The truth is, it is very comfortable to work from the IDE, also you can perform unit tests quickly and easily and is ideal when you are going to work with Java-based technologies.Moreover it's plugin support is good and also support for other languages in nice. In a nutshell, Eclipse is an all in one package for Java development and it provides the best in class features and if that's not tip of the iceberg, it's open source and free to use.

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

Being a tutor I use Eclipse to teach Java. I teach new recruits Spring framework mainly Spring Boot since it's the preferred language used by my company to create web applications. Eclipse provides Spring Tools Suit it contains all the tools required for spring development and works well when integrated with eclipse. Eclipse gives a near-perfect project structure used my company and handles the dependencies in Spring all by itself except for few which are user created.

Furthermore,I use Eclipse for my personal needs (like self-educational projects in Hadoop and Spring Boot,learning Julia for data science etc)

"Eclipse is a good IDE, with minor performance drawbacks."

What do you like best?

Eclipse is a robust, solid, and really user friendly development environment. It contains a lot of the features you expect from an IDE these days. Maven and Gradle integration is built right in and works really well. You can push your project between clients and work together. The entire IDE is customizable to a great extent and the user interface is very intuitive and easy to both learn and use. The predictions are very intelligent and even work with methods and commands from any API you might use at the moment.

What do you dislike?

The IDE sometimes hangs about and stays non-responsive. The predictions can take a while to show up. This isn鈥檛 really a hardware issue as I鈥檝e recreated it on numerous platforms that I鈥檝e used Eclipse on. From low end laptops, to workstation class PCs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is free, so don鈥檛 forget that some competitors that are much more expensive could potentionally offer better solutions, but for a free, extremely powerful IDE, Eclipse is a best-in-class tool, that鈥檚, honestly, many classes above the competition.

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

Eclipse is free, and most importantly, works much better than any other piece of IDE software that鈥檚 free, and even than most of them that aren鈥檛. It provides a safe and easy to use environment for creating and developing software that is a joy to utilize. Simply said, takes care of most of the software development!

"Best IDE for Java"

What do you like best?

Started using Eclipse for programming in Java and had flawless experience. It has plethora of Java libraries which makes your job much easier. They have also added support various other languages since and the experience has been top notch for them all.

What do you dislike?

The whole compilation of the code takes a lot of time sometimes. Sometimes it also takes up a lot of memory. Though all the issues aforementioned used to happen on windows os and I haven't really since them much after switching to mac.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're planning to development in Java environment, Eclipse is the way to go.

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

"All-Around Powerful IDE for all Java Development Needs"

What do you like best?

- Flexibility to extend functionality through a vast variety of 3rd party and open source plugins.

- The ability to switch between different perspectives of your workspace. It is very convenient to switch between a Java perspective for my development time and a Git perspective for when I want to use the screen space to manage source control.

- Auto-code completion is extremely helpful and saves you from needing to memorize the coding language syntax.

What do you dislike?

- The UI looks a little outdated when compared to more modern-looking IDEs like Visual Studio and IntelliJ.

- Eclipse can go through some slowdown when doing some heavy-duty processes or multiple processes at the same time.

- Long startup time.

- The IDE has a bit of a learning curve when working with a production Web-based project.

- The Auto-complete feature could be smarter and quicker.

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

Eclipse allows us to utilize a single development tool for multiple development processes such as coding, debugging, source control, static code analysis, and much more. One of its benefits is the ability to share the preference settings and coding style among the development team so that we can be consistent. The vast amount of support you can find online when running into an issue has also proved to be a great benefit to our team.

"Nice IDE for Java Development"

What do you like best?

Stability: IDEs are complex and large programs, offering a lot of functionality. Yet Eclipse works seamlessly most of the time. Once you get used to its layout and its main keystrokes, you productivity boosts. It's also very extensible, with a huge collection of plug-ins to make your life easier.

What do you dislike?

The release cycle. Every new version is released every year, around the end of June. They release minor revisions throughout the year, yet sometimes you can be affected by a bug and it can take a while until it gets fixed. Sometimes you need to go back to the previous release in order to avoid the problem, in case there's no available workaround.

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

Its our main development environment. We use it to write code for our products, using the Java programming language. Eclipse integration with source control management systems, databases, embedded webservers, etc, allows us to use a single tool for a large part of our development process.

"Sensaciones usando Eclipse"

What do you like best?

Es un IDE bastante completo de c贸digo abierto. Es bastante recomendable para utilizarlo para desarrollar con JAVA, aunque tambi茅n se podr铆a con Python por ejemplo. Dispone de una amplia variedad de sugerencias y ayudas que te har谩n el trabajo mucho m谩s r谩pido y f谩cil, adem谩s una interfaz bastante sencilla.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de ser un IDE de c贸digo abierto, es muy limitado en cuanto a c贸digos de programaci贸n se refiere. Eso s铆, si admite el lenguaje de programaci贸n con el que quieres trabajar, es muy completo y est谩 realmente como bien como IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es un muy buen IDE para comenzar a realizar tus primeros proyectos e iniciarte en el mundo del desarrollo.

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

Con este IDE podr谩s realizar todo tipo de nuevos proyectos y desarrollos en diversos lenguajes de porgramaci贸n. Es un IDE de c贸digo abierto, es decir, licencia gratuita, por lo que a muchas empresas les podr谩 interesar, dependiendo de cual sea su fin.

Ease of importing existing projects is very useful if you are setting up new and want to do it quickly

Autosave and Autoformat saves lot of time

Customization options to match your taste

Run it without installation which allow you to move from one machine to another

Shortcuts editor, you can customize as per your need preference

What do you dislike?

Some straight forward tasks are sometime more time consuming to achieve like installing plugins

Big memory footprint, it requires large amount of memory to run specially if you working on multiple project and have big workspace

eclipse crashes and you cannot find out why. you need to dig through log files and still cannot find the root cause and how to fix it

Setting which need to be tweaked, they should have choose smart defaults

Spelling checker is annoying most of the times

Recommendations to others considering the product

You must try and learn eclipse as it is a de-facto IDE for software development in Java and other top technologies like C++, PHP, Python and it is continuously being developed and improved.

Also you ill find lot of tolls built on top of eclipse so if you now how to work with eclipse you will be comfortable working with other tools as well

"I used to love eclipse for its stability and easy to use"

What do you like best?

It used to be a lightweight and performant IDE which I used for developing various types of applications.

I like the refactoring and debugging support. The integration with multiple tools and technologies like : build tools (maven) ,VCS (git, svn, perforce), webservers (jetty, tomcat), plugins..

What do you dislike?

The first reason for switching to another IDE was stability. it kept freezing and crashing. Also, the java 8 support was less than ideal.

Also, the look&feel wasn't improved for ages. For instance, dark theme looks very ugly with the icons having bad contrast.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is great when it comes to refactoring & debugging especially for java based applications. However there a large number of alternatives which are currently ahead of what eclipse has to offer.

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

Developing a large number of applications (mostly java based): web apps, libraries, back-end services... etc

I have managed to complete a large number of projects both: commercial & open source.

"You can do a lot, but the UI is a little overcrowded"

What do you like best?

Because of the "Marketplace" where you can browse and install IDE extensions almost like a Play/App store, extending the Eclipse IDE to do what you want is relatively easy. If you wanted to, you could program in most languages with Eclipse.

What do you dislike?

The UI is very busy. When you're just starting out, there are too many options even to the point where switching between workspace views is really daunting. The Neon release at least made it a little more stylish.

As others have said, Gradle builds take forever and Spring integration can be kind of daunting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even though it's a pain the butt at first, once you consistently use Eclipse after a week, you'll be able to get done what you need. Don't like the amount UI options scare you.

Additionally, Gradle builds/indexing is initially really really slow, but after your project has properly indexed (basically after using Gradle multiple times for a project) it will run a lot faster.

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

It allowed me to have a unified place to do both Angular 2 and Python Bottle development.

"The Best IDE to program in Java"

What do you like best?

Elcipse is one of the best IDE to program in Java.

It allows you to import and export projects easily without giving you compatibility errors.

It has shortcuts to format code that allow you to save time and effort.

One of its virtues is its debug mode is very complete so you can control every step of your code.

You can customize the interface with different themes to make it easier for you to visualize the code.

What do you dislike?

One of its negative points is that with the latest versions it has become more complex to import projects from subversion, since the installation of plugins and connectors is not so simple.

If you haven't a computer with an SSD disk, the program load can be long

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is a versatile IDE that you get used to fast, one of the best free options on the market.

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

I use eclipse for the development and management of servlets for web pages and development of small desktop applications.

"Best IDE till date - Here is Eclipse"

What do you like best?

This is best integrated developement environment ( IDE) till date ever developed for Java/J2ee Developers.it supports all the plugins required for the development and code quality like PMD integration and all . This is definetly the best advantage of it to be able to support all frameworks with just use of jar

What do you dislike?

it is quite heavy and thats uses lot of mermoy and cpu of the system where it is installed. hence more RAM is required. It also gets stuck many time taking lot of java memory/heap . Also Sometimes it doesnt get the proper shutdown which deletes the binaries file or jars and its not easy to trace them out

"One of the best IDEs for programming"

What do you like best?

One of the most outstanding features of Eclipse is to be able to program in any programming language that you propose, since although it does not support it natively, there are numerous plugins that allow you to install the compiler of any language.

To test the applications it has a very easy to use debug mode.

Eclipse itself is highly configurable, allowing you to adapt the environment to your needs.

Best of all, however, Eclipse is open source and free

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is an IDE that takes up a lot of disk space, always depending on the plugins you have installed. It also uses Java as an engine to be run, which means that it sometimes crashes.

One good thing about Eclipse is that it is open source, however this is a double-edged sword, since as anyone can develop plugins for Eclipse it is possible that there are some problems with running Eclipse

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend its use if your intention is to program in Java, probably the best option on the market today.

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

I use this program to perform anything that I am asked to do at the company such as automotive breakdown management programs or valuation programs.

"IDE con mucho potencial"

What do you like best?

Una de las cosas que m谩s me gustan de Eclipse es poder cambiar de proyecto sin la necesidad de cerrar el IDE, buscar el proyecto y volver a abrirlo, usando la herramienta switch podemos pasar de un proyecto a otro r谩pidamente. Otra cosa que me gusta es poder ver qu茅 usuarios han trabajado y hecho cambios en las diferentes l铆neas de texto usando la funci贸n blame.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta de este IDE es la interfaz anticuada que tiene. Se puede configurar y personalizar de diferentes maneras pero a煤n as铆 la est茅tica es lo peor que tiene. Espero que en las versiones futuras sea algo que podamos ver mejorado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lo recomendar铆a siempre y cuando no se haya utilizado alg煤n otro programa similar a este. Ya que la mayor铆a de IDE m谩s modernos parecen superarlo ligeramente en distintos aspectos.

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

Ahora mismo trabajo con Eclipse y lo recomendar铆a totalmente para empezar a trabajar en desarrollos y poder desenvolverse f谩cilmente si luego se van a utilizar nuevos IDE.

"Eclipse review"

What do you like best?

I think the best thing that I can say about Eclipse is the variety of plugins and addons that it has. You can code to all plataforms you want (android, web, desktop...) in only one IDE, and this is an advantage if your job is develop to multiplaple platforms or just to experiment with the platforms. Another good thing is that you can try modify the source code of Eclipse to adapt it to your necesities; for example, on the market you can find IDEs based on Eclipse, lighters than the original, centered to an specific language. An example is the version of Eclipse adapted to Android.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion, the worst thing is that the IDE Eclipse is very heavy. It takes ages to launch and sometimes is very slow processing documents or trying to show tips. Another bad thing about this software is the skin. The design is very old-fashioned. I think it needs something more elegant to adapt to the new times. One more thing that I dislike is the debugging mode; it is very awful and less intuitive than the debug mode of other softwares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is a good software to start coding if you don't have a clear idea about what language you want to dedicate more time; but when you have more experience I am sue you want to migrate to other software that launch and process the documents fastly.

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

With this software you could solve all the problems related with code, independent of the language you are using.
