Overall Satisfaction with Eclipse

Currently, Eclipse is being used by the technical team (developers) and the business intelligence team, for both software development and big data report generation. Because it's an SAP consultancy firm, sometimes it needs to be used alongside with SAP Netweaver (SAP GUI) for additional features.
  • ABAP development.
  • Java development.
  • It's a heavy tool and usually crashes.
  • The UI could be more modern.
  • It makes development faster, so clients can be billed earlier.
Eclipse could be replaced by NetBeans or WebStorm, but these last two don't have an ABAP development tools plugin (not that I know of at least).
I never had to use Eclipse support, but the online community is very helpful.

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?


Eclipse is a great tool to use alongside with SAP GUI. It makes the ABAP and CDS development faster.
