Feature rich IDE
Score 9 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with Eclipse
We the entire team at my company use Eclipse as the primary IDE for both Java and C++ development projects. We use it for both CDT and JDT development environments. Since it is very well maintained IDE and is in existence for more than a decade now, it is quite powerful and feature rich.
- Debugging features are great in Eclipse
- Auto completion of code and showcase of the arguments of all the methods is good
- Capability to add lots of plugins comes handy when you are extending your project
- Saves lot of hard earned money since its free to download and use
- Saves time while coding. Thanks to its auto completion feature
- Makes debugging a breeze, so developers can concentrate on other most important tasks at hand.
Eclipse IDE is great when compared to other IDEs like Visual Studio IDE, Intelli J IDEA, Net Beans IDE. It loads up fast and opens up the workspace very fast. The auto saving feature of the entire workspace is really great for developers who frequently forget to save their workspace when they are thinking about the solution to their business logic.

Eclipse IDE is very well suited for very large code base projects where in the code files runs into 100s of source files or even thousands of source files. The left pane of file listing comes very handy when you are searching some specific searches across that huge code base of 1000s of source files within your project. Debugging features are rich in this IDE.
