In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Eclipse Special: Milestone Build Now Available - Eclipse 3.0 M8
Eclipse Special: Milestone Build Now Available - Eclipse 3.0 M8

  • To view our full selection of recent Eclipse stories click here

    In summarizing all the features in the Eclipse 3.0 M8 build that are new since the previous milestone build, M7, the Eclipse.org download site has a comprehensive approach.

    Everything is itemized, from the new full-screen welcome page to cheat sheets for walking the user through a lengthy sequence of steps.

    Here's a brief selection:

    • Code samples are now available off the new welcome page, the drag and drop feedback is improved, there's an improved Fastview bar, better scalability when there are multiple tabs, and improved progress reporting for background tasks.
    • The set of available build commands in the Project menu has been simplified, the standard workbench extension points now pick up new contributions from plug-ins that are added dynamically by the update manager, SWT Table now supports the SWT.VIRTUAL style, and SWT's StyledText widget has been rewritten to use two new SWT graphics classes.
    • Errors discovered parsing Ant build files now show up in the Problems view and the Ant editor now supports templates for Ant buildfiles.
    • There are improved debugger pop-ups, improved pre-launch builds, and improved self-hosting. There's a new feature called Collapse Views.
    • Lastly, SWT now runs on AMD64 processors running GTK Linux. Eclipse on 64-bit GTK Linux is not yet production.

    I am with Scott on this one. A pretty poor release....

    Hello Damien,

    IntelliJ is a great product, and WSAD also. WSAD is certainly adapted for large corporations which need quick and quality development. I agree to say that coding specific needs is not adapted, but you can for exampl switch to Eclipse, code everything you need and come back to WSAD to use advanced JSF finctionalities.
    EclipseUML allow to work at three level from editor, wizard and directly manipulate each file that you need to use. The metamodel is open source (metadata information are available), our database modeling is using Torque and Hybernate, our J2ee is using Xdoclet etc...
    You can even customize the java tags which are inclcuded in your java code because EclipseUML is generating Xdoclet tags.
    Respect of standards, customize everything you need is possible with Eclipse.

    I use both IntelliJ and WSAD (Eclipse) on a daily basis and personally find WSAD to be quite a clumsy product. In general I use WSAD because of the wizards that are provided and the integration with WebSphere but when it comes to serious coding I always turn back to IntelliJ.

    It would be nice to use just one IDE but Eclipse isn''t quite there yet.

    I do not understant these posts. Netbean is certainly a good solution, but it is used by less than 3% of Java developers. Eclipse is currently used by by more than 25% of Java Developers and is the leading IDE in Europe.
    Please stop talking about Netbean when talking about Eclipse !!! Many IDEs disapeared in the last years and Netbean will disapear soon. Eclipse will also disapear one day because we can''t stop the technological evolution!!! Not today, I hope :-)

    Vlad,

    Well it''s no netbeans 3.6 ...

    Wouldn''t it be great to be a Flash Developer and hope that you can keep riding that wave out.

    Eclipse is not doomed. Java is not doomed. Eclipse is a great product that has added some much needed competition to the ide market in regards to Java. Intellij just released their 4.0 version. They are pushing theirs to market faster because they are losing market share to Eclipse. Although I think they might have huried it a bit much, it is great to see some competition out there.

    It wasn''t that long ago that your choice was either a text editor or JBuilder. At $3500 a seat, JBuilder wasn''t that great.

    Eclipse is doomed. I would try to say something nice but there''s already enough hype about it.

    All you have to do is look at Flash MX for a while, and the scales begin to fall from your eyes...

    I love Eclipse, but M8 was a big step backwards as far as getting anything one (it looks better though :) ) .. The auto-build is broken, the problems view is broken (or maybe nothing shows because nothing builds), the Build All and Build Projects menu items are permanently disabled, and the new Clean option doesn''t work properly . Overall I ran screaming back to M7 until they get it sorted out.

    Serge,

    Just think of all the people that really don''t care about your lethargic opinion, but they don''t post those opinions here just to feel important because someone might read them. If you can''t constructively contribute (good or bad) then just don''t contribute. You waste everyone''s time with your mindless comments.

    Sorry

    I do not care about Eclipse.
    And even less about SWT.

    This product is absolutely fantastic!
