  • Eclipse handles numerous languages and a multitude of features, so many features that it requires a deep learning curve for users. The setup is complex and requires someone with expertise or background with software implementation.
  • Eclipse is free and offers user community support which is a huge benefit.
  • Eclipse has solid Subversion integration which saves costs for a firm that is already using Subversion as their configuration management tool.
  • Eclipse lacks the ability to support mobile application development which is a negative impact for the need to deliver mobile apps.
  • Eclipse is open source which means it is constantly updating features and functions extending the learning curve for users.

  • It worked very well for me for many years. Alternate environments were available, but the integrations were never quite as thorough. Overall, it had a positive impact on my development by allowing me to work in multiple environments and many different projects relatively seamlessly.
  • Since we developed in VM environments, Eclipse was painful to set up, but once set up worked better than the alternatives. Most of my colleagues using environments other than PyCharm revered to CLI debugging of python clients, which was quite painful. Overall, Eclipse made my development process smoother and more efficient.
  • The plethora of tools and integrations available for Eclipse was often confusing and made upgrading painful. I tended not to upgrade on major revisions despite the improvements because the process was too painful.
