Likelihood to Recommend

Eclipse

Eclipse is recommended for enabling the user community to be self-reliant in scenarios where the mode of operation demands agile, on the fly accurate reporting, such as during month ends for reconciliation purposes. The urgency and sensitivity of such situations result in a lot of stress with quick turnaround times but with the ability of Eclipse and Hana views, the reliance on IT could be minimized. Also, IT could leverage the power of Eclipse to develop Hana views without having to do the traditional route of ABAP developments. It might be less appropriate for situations where the agile and dynamic nature of the operations is not a necessity.

Pros

Eclipse

  • Eclipse organizes imports well and does a good job presenting different programming languages.
  • Eclipse auto formats source code allowing customization and increased readability.
  • Eclipse reports errors automatically to users rather than logging it to the console.
  • Eclipse has coding shortcuts and auto-correction features allowing faster software development.

Cons

Eclipse

  • While the DB integration is broad (many connectors) it isn't particularly deep. So if you need to do serious DB work on (for example) SQL Server, it is sometimes necessary to go directly to the SQL Server Studio. But for general access and manipulation, it is ok.
  • The syntax formatting is sometimes painful to set up and doesn't always support things well. For example, it doesn't effectively support SCSS.
  • Using it for remote debugging in a VM works pretty well, but it is difficult to set up and there is no documentation I could find to really explain how to do it. When remote debugging, the editor does not necessarily integrate the remote context. So, for example, things like Pylint don't always find the libraries in the VM and display spurious errors.
  • The debugging console is not the default, and my choice is never remembered, so every time I restart my program, it's a dialog and several clicks to get it back. The debugging console has the same contextual problems with remote debugging that the editor does.

Basic functionality is pretty straight-forward and easy to use. But more advanced features can be tricky to figure out if you're not used to the way Eclipse works. Many times things are hidden behind some obscure setting or within some new panel or view that must be enabled or switched to.

Being that Eclipse is open source and has a massive user base, there is outstanding community support. There are also enterprise version which offers paid support if you're into that sort of thing. That being said, I would be amiss to not share that I have spent hours and sometimes days trying to figure out why something was occurring in the environment or trying to replicate an issue another colleague was experiencing but I was not.

Alternatives Considered

Eclipse

They are very similar but eclipse has greater availability of plugins that allow you to achieve much more satisfactory results, in the products that are developed, the basic configurations are a bit more difficult than in NetBeans but they are much more specific and much more complete, which allows having a little more control over the ide, eclipse is also a little less heavy than NetBeans.For example, in my case I started to work with eclipse, before working with other IDE's and I found it quite comfortable and intuitive, at first it scares the amount of options you have but once you get used to it it is very simple, it has a learning curve very short what if you have already worked with other IDE's is very easy to grasp the trick.

Return on Investment

Eclipse

  • This development environment offers the possibility of improving the productivity time of work teams by supporting the integration of large architectures.
  • It drives constant change and evolution in work teams thanks to its constant versioning.
  • It works well enough to develop continuous server client integrations, based on solid or any other programming principle.
