I have not worked with the support directly myself, but from the overall feedback I hear from other users, I think it is good overall. Everyone can open bugs and ask questions on our forums which I really like also there is good overall support online as it is a very common IDE.

I gave this rating because Eclipse is an open-source free IDE therefore no support system is available as far as I know. I have to go through other sources to solve my problem which is very tough and annoying. So if you are using Eclipse then you are on your own, as a student, it is not a big issue for me but for developers it is a need.

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.

Eclipse support is very responsive and I believe that regular updates and improvements are being made by the team to make the IDE better and robust to use. Eclipse also provides the feature to report any bug instantly directly to the support team. They respond to the report very fast and take quick action.

Eclipse is a solid IDE for more experienced developers who are more familiar with plug-in development and many features it offers. It takes more time to get a simple project compiled, built and up and running. Eclipse environment is outdated and the user community is lacking support on some topics or issues. Eclipse is harder to use for Web Services and C++ which was my primary use.

All the Eclipse platform source code is publicly available which makes it very easy to solve your problems on your own. Sometimes it is more efficient to get an assist from various project experts which are straightforward to reach. There are also third-party companies offering good quality, professional support with quite an affordable pricing.

It's open-source, so support for any given issue is hit or miss. It is a conglomeration of a bazillion tools that don't usually complement each other, and often compete with each other. So it's hard to know what to use or when to switch to something else. As a python developer, PyCharm is better because it's basically Eclipse with real support and focus on Python development.

Eclipse has been around for quite some time and is more than just an SAP development tool. In fact, it is probably used more by JAVA and other developers than SAP developers. There are updates and new versions coming out all the time, and support for the product is very strong.

I gave it this rating because my experience with the support for Eclipse has been both good and bad. There have been times where I have called in and have had a great experience, and there have been times where it has been the complete opposite and I've had to call again to get a different person.

The Eclipse team, and by extension, eclipse community, has an amazing level of dedication to fixing defects, and providing support for one another to make sure everyone can use the product and get around all the crazy quirks that pop up. You'll hardly ever run into a scenario that nobody hasn't already run into (and usually resolved).

The support for Eclipse is very good. Since Eclipse has been around for so many years, there is a lot of documentation available online on usage and tips / tricks. There's also many online forums (ie: Stack Overflow) where questions and issues are reported and answered. Most Java developers have experience developing in Eclipse, so there is a huge open source community available as a resource.

It's ease of use, popularity and great support from the Eclipse community user. It's code assistance and ease of use makes it widely used by all small, medium & large organizations. It works well for deploying applications on various vendors like Oracle Bea Weblogic server, IBM's application server, Tomcat and various other third party application servers.

As an open-source project, I don't think you can get direct, personalized support from the Eclipse Foundation. You're most likely going to have to use forums, message boards, and mailing lists to obtain help from other users. There is/was a large user base so usually, you can find someone else that's had the same problem, but if you have a really unique/obscure issue you might have trouble getting support for it.
