Hello folks!
Is there any plugin for Eclipse that allows to collaborate between team-members?
By collaboration I mean: chat, links to particular line of code and so on.
Thanks!

What did you find when you tried searching for something like that?


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Ok, I've found DocShare for Eclipse.

Yesterday, after seeing you post, I decided to give this DocShare a try. I don't know about others, but installing and configuring it nearly gave me a brain aneurysm. In short: incompatibilities, conflicts, bugs.

But then I stumbled upon Saros, which made quite a good impression.
I'd recommend giving it a try, seems really easy and straightforward, and configuring it with an xmpp account was a piece of cake.

. You rock.
I'm trying to switch from IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse because it has a lot of forks like WSO2 Developer Studio. But it's very often that have the "aneurysm" from Eclipse I think if it's worth it. Oh man, I know it's a little offtopic, but why you guys like Eclipse so much?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
