I did know till now that Eclipse was a sourceforge project.
Most of the Java IDEs are not opensource.
I understand Eclipse is used for mainly J2EE.
Im learning J2ME only (hardly any J2EE) and need to know if Eclipse can be a replacement for the Toolkit. If not can it get be associated with the J2ME API ? Intellisense etc.

By the way, Eclipse is open source, but it has nothing at all to do with source forge...
