"IDE perfecto para desarrolladores JAVAEE"

What do you like best?

La facilidad de uso es algo que destaca en este IDE.

Contiene una gran cantidad de plugins que permite utilizar un gran abanico de tecnologías.

Es muy facil de integrar el servidor que se desea utilizar (Wildfly en mi caso) además de otros elementos muy comunes en desarrollos colaborativos como subversión o Git.

La gran comunidad que hay detrás permite un gran soporte y un número elevado de actualizaciones periódicas.

Finalmente, al ser multiplataforma, puedes utilizar cualquier sistema operativo en tú ordenador.

What do you dislike?

Tiene un alto consumo de RAM con lo que en ciertos momentos , y en función de las adiciones realizadas en tu proyecto, será necesario añadir más RAM en la configuración para evitar cuelques o lentitud mientras se trabaja.

Aún bien configurado, en algunas ocasiones es un poco lento su uso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Una alternativa imprescindible para el desarrollo de soluciones JavaEE.

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

Soluciones empresariales software usando la arquitectura JavaEE en combinación de MAVEN, servidor de aplicaciones WildFly y bases de datos Oracle o postgreSQL.

"Poderoso IDE para estudiantes y profesionales de la carrera"

What do you like best?

Una de las cosas que mas nos pueden gustar de utilizar eclipse es que posee una gran comunidad de desarrolladores, esto es una gran ventaja ya que la mayoria de los bugs o problemas que se te puedan presentar con eclipse ya han sido resueltos o pueden ser resueltos gracias a la gran comunidad que tiene este software en el top de los IDE para populares del mundo para programación en JAVA, PHP, mySQL, C/C++, entre otros.

Otro punto a destacar es que Eclipse puede ser utilizado de manera gratuita, por lo que muchos profesionales y estudiantes desarrolladores lo utilizan.

What do you dislike?

Aunque Eclipse es multiplaforma y un IDE muy poderoso su interfaz grafico dentro del ambiente de linux es muy obsoleta al día de hoy, deberian de considerar lanzar una actualización para mejorar esto ya que el sistema operativo de linux tiene una gran comunidad de desarrolladores que utilizan eclipse como herramienta esencial por ventajas que ellos mismos visualizan.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse es gratuito, facil de utilizar y posee una interfaz de trabajo muy limpia que te permite trabajar desarrollando libremente de manera muy comoda.

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

Eclipse tiene integrado un compilador que detecta la sintaxis de lenguaje de programación con el que estamos trabajando en el y una de los mayores beneficios que te da este software es que resalta la codificación del lenguaje de programación, de esta manera nos ayuda a diferencias entre la sintaxis, comentarios y podemos detectar cualquier tipo de error que tengamos en nuestra ya mencionada sintaxis.

Otro de los grandes beneficios de Eclipse es la organización del area de trabajo que nos ofrece, posee un entorno y una interfaz grafica muy profesional que puede ser personalizada a nuestro gusto de esta manera es muy facil trabajar de manera comoda y eficaz dentro de Eclipse.

"power shot sdk"

What do you like best?

eclipse is the software which is widely used among the developers. it is good in every perspective. the sdk of eclipse is very nice and natural. the best thing it has a good editor and it provides the developer a good workspace server and also cloud ide. people can create environment , do coding stuff on the editor and run their code with effectiveness.

What do you dislike?

eclipse is very big in size as it has a lot of inbuilt features and various things are already developed and pre-loaded into it.

the size of the packages are very high but its necessary as it has to compile and run the programs through its library and even more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

users should at least try this software as this has various feature which makes the work quite effiient and fast. we can simply develop the code and debug and run into it. the best thing is users can simply download and use it any environment . they can simply do into various coding languages also like python, java etc. its editor is too good as it supports various coding languages. the debugger of the eclipse is also very fast.

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

as the eclipse has various packages installed or the package we need we simply import and make the flows run. the business problems like to develop code for implementing the requirements. also helps in debug the existing code with its excellent debugging feature.

"Student/Professional Experience "

What do you like best?

Does the job. When programming in something like Java, or really, learning to program in something like Java, Eclipse is often everyone's go-to. The additional features make a lot more sense when you get used to it, but it is something that takes quite a bit of time to adapt to. However, it does give you quite remarkable capabilities to develop really cool stuff, so I guess that's a worthwhile trade-off. I used eclipse for my first ever introduction to coding, and let me tell you, there was a learning curve.

What do you dislike?

As I have somewhat already mentioned, the learning curve for an IDE like Eclipse is much higher than other IDEs like IntelliJ or VSCode. When being first exposed to Eclipse, you don't know what features you should focus on and what you should ignore. It is a very effective development environment, but it's also not very visually appealing and somewhat painful to look at for hours on hours.

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

Any and all Java development is often best done with eclipse. Or at least that is how I was taught to develop in Java. I also find warnings are more effectively communicated via Eclipse than they are in IDEs like IntelliJ. Many developers who are more experienced feel much more comfortable with Eclipse than with other IDEs.

"Eclipse. Desarrollo de aplicaciones."

What do you like best?

Eclipse es un entorno de desarrollo integrado, de código abierto, multiplataforma (Windows, Linux, OS X de Apple, etc) para desarrollar sofware en multiples lenguajes de programación, principalmente con el IDE de JAVA. Incluye un compilador para detectar los errores y traducir el código fuente a código objeto o código máquina. Lo bueno de ser software libre es que posee una comunidad de usuarios detrás (fundación eclipse) pendiente de sacar actualizaciones con mejoras, sin ningún ánimo de lucro.

Podemos encontrar otras ventajas como:

Ventajas:

*Ofrece un editor de texto con resaltador en varios colores de sintaxis.

*La compilación es en tiempo real, lo cual nos avisa de posibles errores de sintaxis.

*Tiene pruebas unitarias con (JUnit) para comprobar que el programa esta libre de errores de ejecución..

*Control de versiones con (CVS).

*Permite la integración completa con (Ant),

*Incluye asistentes para la creación de los proyectos

*Clases, test, etc...

*Permite incorporar nuevos módulos, también llamados plugin, para ampliar la funcionalidad que a diferencia de otros entornos monolíticos, las funcionalidades están todas incluidas, las necesite el usuario o no.

What do you dislike?

Los programas desarrollados en el lenguaje JAVA suelen ser un pelín lentos. Además,

algunas de las herramientas de java conllevan un sobrecosto a parte,.

Necesitas tener la máquina virtual de java instalada para que funcione. Java Developtmen Kit (JDK) (Java Voirtual Machine).

El consumo de recursos, como memoria RAM y uso del procesador es demasiado elevado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Elijan Eclipse como su entorno de desarrollo integrado ideal, pero no te olvides de instalar el Java Developtmen Kit (JDK) (Java Voirtual Machine)

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

Nos permite realizar pequeños programas en clase de programación. En una empresa de desarrollo software podría ser plataforma de desarrollo adoptada sin ningún tipo de coste asociado.

Se echa en falta más soporte para webapps como jsp y servlets.

"Review eclipse as a Java developer"

What do you like best?

The most I like about eclipse is its auto fill code and suggestions while coding. And pointing out the errors is utmost easy with IDE like eclipse.It shows a proper directory structure which will make us navigate easily from one class to another and one project to another.

What do you dislike?

The thing i dislike about eclipse is the look and colors of the application. It hasn't changed much over the years and I don't much able to find the differences between each updates.I also don't like eclipse as it is not possible to see only a single project for that eclipse window. A single eclipse window will show all the projects in it.and javascript and html are not good in eclipse like notepad++ or visual studiocode

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is the most famous Java IDE in the world. People who start learning java should start practice with eclipse , as it will save time and make the student understand mistakes very easily in the learning process. There are many shortcuts available in the eclipse, which will almost auto fill half of the code , when you write basic entities required in the class.

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

Currently, I am working on multiple projects using Java based frameworks.The most benefits I find are the suggesting the import statements and adding jar files to classpath evnthough they are not present in the current projects classpath . Eclipse suggests to import jars that are there in other projects classpath. It makes it easy to rather again going and searching for jar downloads.

"Perfect IDE for project development"

What do you like best?

Application development with this IDE is very easy. Integration with different tools is so smooth and this has different plugins so we are abke to use these as per the need. We are easily able to use required themes in our project on the requirements basis to add the enrich look and feel in application.

Its Intellisense functionality is much helpful during programming. This tool is pretty much secure, powerful and reliable. Its a cross platform comaptible.

In this tool build, debugging process are so simple.

What do you dislike?

Entey level developer need to put more efforts - how to use and configure advanced features of this tool except that so far we did not experience any issue with this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, go for this IDE its a perfect tool for project development.

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

Reduced time on project development efforts as this task became easy with this tool. Improved project delivery and increased productvity.

Build process is easy and quick.

"Eclipse. El IDE top mundial."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Eclipse es que es gratuito y no supone una inversión económica para mi empresa, y en cambio, nos da un servicio muy útil, pues nos ofrece un entorno integrado de desarrollo para programar en lenguajes como Java.

Es multi plataforma, pudiendo ser usado en ordenadores con sistemas operativos linux, mac o windows.

Ofrece coloreado de la sintaxis en función del lenguaje de desarrollo.

Posibilidad de integrar pluggins para ampliar funciones.

Posibilidad de compilación en tiempo real.

Múltiples pestañas para editar varios archivos al mismo tiempo.

Posibilidad de utilizar con lenguajes de programación estructurados y orientados a objetos, incluso para lenguajes de marca también es válido.

What do you dislike?

Voy a mencionar algunos aspectos que no me gustan, pero que no desmerecen poner nuestra confianza en este IDE tan popular.

Consume gran cantidad de recursos de nuestra máquina, principalmente RAM.

Hay errores a la hora de integrarse con algunos pluggins específicos.

La interfaz transmite poca confianza, pues es de aspecto antiguo y obsoleto. Hay que mejorar urgentemente en este sentido.

Las actualizaciones podrían ser más periódicas.

Se echan en falta mejores traducciones de las funciones en la aplicación.

No trae de serie un controlador de versiones, para facilitar el trabajo colaborativo en equipo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yo recomendaría utilizar Eclipse como IDE para novatos que se inician en el aprendizaje de la programación tanto como para expertos que dedican su profesión a la programación, independientemente del lenguaje, pues Eclipse no es para nada específico para un único lenguaje.

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

Existen diferentes IDE para multitud de lenguajes de desarrollo, y con Eclipse conseguimos reunir todo lo que necesitamos en un único entorno en lugar de tener varios específicos para cada lenguaje. Lo utilizamos para nuestros cursos de programación orientada a objetos con java, y también para programación estructura en C.

"Multi-platform IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is an IDE that supports many programming languages so, unlike other similar applications, it does not need external plugins to be compatible with programming languages. One of the best things we can do with Eclipse IDE is to manage the database remotely through the MySQL interface that exists in the eclipse Marketplace.

I also liked that with Eclipse IDE it is possible to use different java compiler versions, that provided by Oracle (Oracle JDK) and open source (OpenJDK), both are 100% compatible without any type of program or error. The Eclipse interface can also be modified since it gives us 3 options, the classic, default and the current one that incorporates the most innovative improvements.

What do you dislike?

The application consumes a considerable amount of RAM and this is due in large part to the use of the virtual java machine. The high consumption of RAM limits a bit when using Eclipse IDE on certain old computers or laptop with a small amount of RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eclipse is one of the best IDE to program in Java, Php or C ++ since it was one of the first applications of this type that was created and therefore is the leader in this aspect the other IDEs usually copy what implements Eclipse first. Also Eclipse is an application free of charge since the project is maintained thanks to donations.

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

With Eclipse I can program much faster because the program automates most of the process thanks to its auto completion, templates for files and shortcut to perform the actions much faster than looking for them with the mouse. The debugger that provides the IDE for java and C ++ provides very good information about compilation errors so it is very useful to solve bugs.

"Easy source code review without leaving your Eclipse perspective! Join the thousands of developers ."

What do you like best?

I have been using eclipse for many years, long ago eclipse was the only java IDE that existed and was widely used and known all over eclipse is famous for our Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE), but our C/C++ IDE and PHP IDE are pretty cool too. You can easily combine language support and other features into any of our default packages, and the Eclipse Marketplace allows for virtually unlimited customization and extension.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is a memory eater.It’s never satisfied with it’s heap size.It slowed down a fairly great Dell latitude with intel i7 and 8gb RAM. It’s routine to kill the eclipse process every now and then.

"Good IDE written in java"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Eclipse is the customization capacity offered by the application to organize your work area and be able to use it in a more comfortable and efficient way. There are also a large number of plugins available for eclipse that are created by the community and then placed on the Eclipse Marketplace.

Especially the Git plugin seemed very useful to link my local repository with the remote repository hosted in the repository of GitHub repositories, it is also possible to store the password to avoid having to enter constantly.

And finally another feature that surprised me in eclipse is the integration and ability to use Gradle a library that allows you to manage your projects much more effectively and manages and downloads libraries remotely.

What do you dislike?

- The worst of Eclipse is undoubtedly its outdated interface, unfortunately this IDE is very complete and powerful but visually it is very ugly, especially in its version of linux.

- The rendering and antialiasing of the sources is horrible in the linux version, for example the font consoles in windows works perfectly but in linux it looks pixelated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Eclipse as an IDE to program especially in Java because it is a strong point and also its debugger is the best I've seen so far in any IDE. To program in PHP I recommend you look for another application, I personally do not convince me.

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

The biggest benefit that I have found when using Eclipse has been in the organization of my projects since now I can find everything faster, I have also gained in efficiency and speed when programming thanks to the default templates for the creation of classes.

"Good cross-platform IDE"

What do you like best?

I have been using eclipse for many years, long ago eclipse was the only java IDE that existed and was widely used and known all over the world, during this time I learned everything about its keyboard shortcuts, options etc ...

For me the best of eclipse is that it is an IDE that allows programming in any programming language or at least the most important and known. For all of them, it offers a large number of tools such as autocomplete, documentation, git integration etc ...

But where else highlights eclipse in my opinion is in the plugins section, without the community and its contributions this IDE I think it would have died a while ago, I personally use the plugins of Gradle, Java Build Designer and Color Themes.

What do you dislike?

- It is an IDE too heavy and hungry for RAM, this is largely the fault of being programmed in Java

- I use a plugin for the design of UI in java and it has many glitches graphics and even crash sometimes, I'm talking about the Linux version.

- The interface is very old, even changing between different options available are all very similar, in this aspect eclipse remains behind its competitors.

- Updates are not very common, the last one is 2018

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Eclipse IDE only if you are going to program in Java, you should keep in mind that for Php, python etc ... there are much more developed options that give better support to the language. Regarding java, I recommend you eclipse by your UI designer and Java debugger. Also in Eclipse you do not have to buy licenses to use it.

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

The use that I give Eclipse IDE mainly is programming in Java because even with all its problems eclipse is one of the best IDE to create applications in Java, its debugger is the best thing that I have tried in an IDE until now and you can also create interfaces in a graphic way what makes everything much simpler and faster.

"IDE for general purposes"

What do you like best?

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

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

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

"Nice IDE for modern application development"

What do you like best?

This is an efficient and cross platform application so we are able to work with different technologies. As well as its easy to use and straightforward.

Its smoothly customizable as per the business requirement.

Eclipse has enrich window builder library that is greatly helpful to develop the application. Eclipse code editor's artifical intelligence is very much helpful during the development as this works like a helper for me.

We can easily use the inbuilt themes to make the application more interactive. Finally integration of application is seamless.

What do you dislike?

Application's advanced feature requires more efforts for new/ entry level developer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Decent IDE for application development and has many inbuilt functionalities those are helpful during programming.

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

Easily able to build the application, reports, also creating own plugins as per the need. Increased the productivity and decreased job cost.

Overall its an essential and reliable IDE.

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

What do you like best?

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

Awesome plugin support and active community help.

Its free.

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

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

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

"Awesome development tool"

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

"very useful but outdated now"

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

"Very easy to use and great for learners"

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes I am recommending.

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

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

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

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

"IDE imprescindible para desarrolladores JAVAEE"

What do you like best?

La cantidad de plugins existentes. Puedes realizar desarrollos usando casi todos los frameworks y tecnologías. Además, esta capacidad permite su adaptación rápida a nuevas tecnologías que puedan aparecer.

La capacidad de personalización. Puedes definir desde la apariencía hasta las marcas warning a mostrar, formato del fuente o mensajes de error al compilar.

What do you dislike?

Lentitud. La fluidez no es una de sus virtudes.

Otro de sus problemas es el consumo elevado de memória RAM. Al usar la JVM de java es necesario añadir bastante RAM para tener un uso correcto en desarrollos mas complejos.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Un gran IDE con alta capacidad de adaptación, con actualizaciones periódicas frecuentes y una enorme comunidad detrás.

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

Proyectos Maven JavaEE usando servidor Wildfly.

Eclipse tiene una vista personalizada para proyectos JavaEE, soporte para maven y compatibilidad para integrar un servidor wildfly controlable desde el IDE.

"Eclipse"

What do you like best?

Eclipse es un excelente software open source y gratuito.

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

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

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

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

"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.

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

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

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

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

"Eclipse always scores a 10"

What do you like best?

Amazing IDE for high-level programming. It has so many features that help improve your programming skills. You get optimal results when used for java programming. Their help desk is also very responsive. I love Eclipse

What do you dislike?

Well, it is not something you can pick up and master in a day. It requires a lot of patience and calm. Once you are used to it, though, you would really love it

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are thousands of nice reviews on Eclipse already. That means they are obviously doing something right. I think you should try it

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

There is no better IDE out there. We use Eclipse in our engineering and IT departments to run most of our codes, write business solutions algorithms and a lot of other things. It has been of massive benefit to us

"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.
