Eclipse is a world class Java IDE, a platform for building and integrating application development tools, and an open source project and community. Eclipse is the foundation of IBM's WebSphere Studio family of tools and of a rapidly growing number of other commercial tool and application offerings from a wide spectrum of software providers. In its first year, eclipse.org processed over three million Eclipse download requests from over 100 countries. There are over 100 open source projects based on Eclipse. Over 175 commercial organizations are developing Eclipse-based offerings. Written by members of the IBM Jumpstart team, The Java� Developer's Guide to Eclipse is the definitive Eclipse companion. Drawing on their considerable experience teaching Eclipse and mentoring developers, the authors provide guidance on how to customize Eclipse for increased productivity and efficiency and how to avoid common pitfalls. Key coverage includes:
Eclipse navigation and terminology
Eclipse and the Java development environment
Extending Eclipse, the plug-in architecture, and Eclipse frameworks
Those new to Eclipse will benefit from the directed exercises on how to use the Eclipse platform. Advanced developers can learn how to extend Eclipse and use this book as a reference to the Eclipse frameworks. An accompanying CD-ROM contains Eclipse SDK version 2.0, as well as exercise solutions and many code examples to make learning Eclipse easier. Whether you want to use Eclipse and Eclipse-based offerings as your integrated development environment (IDE), or customize Eclipse further, you'll find The Java� Developer's Guide to Eclipse the complete ready reference.
