Does Eclipse IDE provide reduction in development time as compared to other IDEs ?

Hi shailesh,

It's very hard to answer this question definatively. I think you have to try them out and see which one works best for you.

Eclipse does do refactoring and I don't think I could go back to an IDE that did not.

At present we have the following IDEs in industry for Java development:
Borland- JBuilder
NetBeans- Open Source NetBean IDE (Supported by Sun)
Eclipse- Open Source (Supported by IBM)
IBM- WSAD Eclipse based IDE
BEA- WebLogic Workshop

In terms of reduction in development time, every IDE has its pros and cons. But one thing about Eclipse based IDEs is you can add plugins (not sure if this is possible with NetBeans) This gives you lot of flexibility.

Thanks!!
