Keeping in sync with Eclipse. What a mare.

IDE, Java, Tech Add comments

Eclipse is a great product, don’t get me wrong. But I have such a tough time keeping things in sync.

It means that:

a) I have multiple versions of Eclipse
b) I keep spending time “trying” to see if the latest plugin works on the latest Eclipse version

Then, add the fact that eclipse plugin X has a dependency on plugin Y and you soon are driven nuts :)

I am really glad that 3.0 is in RC1 and that the API shouldn’t be changing, so hopefully the plugin writers have time to catch up and I can just use 3.0 :)

Until then, I will keep using IDEA unless I need to do AspectJ (in which I use AJDT), Tapestry (Spindle, or the cool Eclipse profiler plugin, …

    This doesn’t work when you get the the point that the plugin versions no longer work with the 2.x branch of Eclipse. Then you need to jump into the world of 3, and the milestones.

    I can’t wait. Spindle is fantastic :)

    Thanks for the great work.
