I want to use Eclipse for working on java related project but when i looked in to the download page there are different kinds of packages available in eclipse, like the Europa Package, Ganymede Package and Galilieo. I am confused which one to use? How should i decide which package to use? There is a J2EE IDE in all three different kinds !!

Galileo is the latest, so you should download that one. Then, there are different type of packages which include different kind of plugins, depending on your needs. If you're not interested in J2EE, you can download Eclipse Classic 3.5.2.

Yes. Galileo is Eclipse 3.5, Ganymede is 3.4...

Yes, Galilio is latest version but i feel Europa has better performance in comparison of Galilio.
Choice is yours.
