Hi,

I am using eclipse from quite a while know and work with people who are working on it for even longer,
but you can not learn all the ins and outs of eclipse because,

1] its huge,
2]you do not need to know it inside out , just knowing the stuff that you need, will do just fine.

I always find the documentation provided with eclipse more the sufficient for things i need to look for .

Regards.

If you are a java beginner then I would recommend not to you eclipse. First get to know java. Play with it. Learn it. After that you could just start working
in eclipse. You will learn about special functions while using it and if you really want to learn it in side out then there are great eclipse tutorials out there.

When I'm learning an IDE I usually just create a new project, start hammering through the menus, look at all the preferences I can configure, etc.

Thanks for your answers. Well I am not new to Java. However, from my previous project, we only used Crimson Editor. And for my current project, we will be using Eclipse for Web App Development. So now I am trying to familiarize myself with it. Currently I'm reading "Eclipse for Dummies". I hope it's a good start.

Not a "general" question. Moving to our IDEs forum.

When I first started with Eclipse I went to the help text - it actually contains several decent tutorials that walk you through some of the major features.
