Hello friends,
Currently i am using Netbeans 6.9.1, i want to use the Eclipse IDE since i heard that in the industry Eclipse is used more than Netbeans. I had never worked on Eclipse.
Can someone tell me from where can i download Eclipse? it's better if i get a free version.
i've tried on net but without any result.

thanks in advance.

With regards,

The tricky bit is that there are different packages, depending on what you want to do. If you're just going to use it for standalone Java applications, you can choose Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. If you want to do some web development or other J2EE related stuff, then you'd better get Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.
