Overall Satisfaction with Eclipse

Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) used in computer programming. I used Eclipse mainly to develop Java applications. It was being used by most developers I know that write Java code. I would say it is the best IDE for Java but it can also be used for other coding languages and applications. I use it both personally and professionally.
  • IntelliSense is awesome.
  • Run and compile Java with ease.
  • The theme and animations can affect performance.
  • It does support a lot of languages, but not as good as Java.
  • Standard IDE everyone knows and love.
  • Easy to get new people onboard and work with team.
I think Eclipse is best for Java while the other products, for example, NetBeans, is good for PHP. Visual Studio is really good for C#. I would still say Eclipse is really good overall, but awesome for Java developers.
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.

Do you think Eclipse delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Eclipse's feature set?


Did Eclipse live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Eclipse go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Eclipse again?


It is amazing and the best IDE for Java that I recommend to other developers. If you disable some of the unnecessary spell check and the plugins, and also change the theme it can be very nice and fast, and it helps to improve performance. Also it is really good to have it on your resume.
