Riyad Kalla,

I am currently an Eclipse user and am wondering what features MyEclipse offers that Eclipse does not.

Thank you.

Mike,
Quite a few... is there an area of development you are currently working in that I could provide some more detail on for you?

Our official Feature Matrix might provide some insight for specific features if you want to browse it and take a look at some of the screenshots.

The Feature Matrix is very informative on a high level. Could you compare the Version Control Management and Refactoring between MyEclipse and Eclipse?

Mike,
They are going to be identical because:

* Source control support is provided by either the integrated CVS plugin, or any set of numerous 3rd party plugins. All of which will work fine in Eclipse or MyEclipse.

* Refactoring is provided by the base JDT.

So if you are doing straight Java-only development and no UI work, straight Eclipse SDK will be all you need. Although if you are working with Swing forms or anything like that, you might take a look at our Matisse4MyEclipse product (that is free for Pro subscriptions).

Just as a reminder, MyEclipse is built ontop of Eclipse+WTP, so all the features we provide are a super-set ontop of the existing ones. It's up to users to figure out what they need.

Optionally if you wanted to tell me what you are working on, I can offer up the tooling in MyEclipse that may help or let you know if Eclipse SDK is sufficient.

This pretty much covers what I am working on right now. It sounds like I am well covered.

I guess what I was hoping for was a way to search CVS a little more comprehensively. I have only been using Eclipse for about 7-8 months and have tried to find a way to search CVS for a check-in by someone specific on a specific date.

Thank you for the info.
