Q 4 Bill Dudney (10): 'beam me up Scotty'

Hi Bill,

In comparison to a simple editor eclipse
and other IDE's try to leverage a developer's
mansions by integrating tasks (I've read this
somewhere , but imho it's a valid point). The
thinking process during analysis and development
is fortunately too eclectic and difficult/impossible
to automate, so knock on wood I won't be looking
at the 'jobs offered' forum for now.

In your opinion, given the nifty features in eclipse
like for example refactoring and uml-design plug-ins,
etc. etc. will there be an attempt to put more high
level knowledge like patterns, antipatterns, etc. in
the shape of a guiding instrument (i.e. plug-ins,
wizards?) for developers?

Hi Gian,

Some of the higher level stuff is already there. DeveloperWorks has a plugin for analysing J2EE code for patterns & anti-patterns. I have forgotten what its called but I'm sure that with a little help from google you could find it.

Good Luck!
