Hi Riyad,

I guess most of the features that is offered by MyEclipse is found in Eclipse Europa. I've mentioned some of those features supported by Eclipse Europa below. Can you please tell me what additional features does MyEclipse offers??

* You can optionally use �Save Actions� (configured and enabled in the preferences) to perform all kind of actions when saving a Java editor in Eclipse. Possible actions are code formatting, adding missing @Override and @Deprecated annotations, Organize imports and removing trailing whitespace.
* Support for the Java Persistence API
* We can now finally benefit from a visual JSP / JSF Web-Page Editor
* Full JSF 1.2 support including a visual Faces configuration editor
* Long resource paths are now supported on Windows. Requires 1.5 or higher for it to work.
* Improves refactoring like refactoring directly inside the editor (without a dialog) and no need anymore to save your editors before doing a refactoring.
* Workspace relative paths are now possible for JavaDoc locations. This way it�s now possible to place a zip with the JavaDoc of a library inside your project and attach it to your library. The advantage is that each developer will automatically get the JavaDoc when the check-out the project from version control. This is especially helpful for commercial libraries for which you don�t have the source code.
* CTRL + 3 will give you a quick access to UI elements such as views, commands, preference pages etc.
* And finally for Eclipse is now fully functional for Windows Vista.

As I mentioned in some of my other posts, MyEclipse is based ontop of Eclipse+WTP, so any time an enhancement is made to either of those items we immediately get it as well.

What MyEclipse brings to the table is a fully integrated enhanced experience ontop of the platforms that it builds on.

I also need to make this point for the folks that are standing around making bulleted-list comparisons... *please* actually go try the tools. We have more converts coming from a straight Eclipse+WTP setup than any other group because of the experience/bugs/performance problems. That alone is worth $30 to a lot of people.

In addition to that all of our development efforts, wizards and designers are built around helping you work faster and smarter.
