I have rather strange question. I did little programming on Java EE using Eclipse for Enterprise Java and Web developers. After some time, I downloaded another Eclipse for Java Developers.
What I expected to get are two apps (processes). But in the end, I got the same app. Since my "old" Eclipse for EE was pinned to taskbar, I saw that same eclipse being run after I ran latest Eclipse SE.
I am confused now. Shouldn't they have different icons as they have different purpose? How can I differentiate them now?
What I would like to have are two icons for these two so I can know which one I am running? Right now, no matter which one I run (EE or SE), I am redirected to same icon in taskbar, which I don't want. Yes, they have different icon when I am "inside" them, but they use literally same icon in taskbar, which is crazy. What am I missing here / what can I do to fix it?
Eclipse is an OSGi container. A 100% pure version of Eclipse wouldn't even be an IDE. But by including appropriate OSGi plugins, you can make Eclipse be almost anything you want - a Java IDE, a JEE IDE, a C/C++ IDE, an office word processor (yes, Eclipse has been promoted as a business app container! )
There are about a half a dozen pre-packaged Eclipse "spins" available from the main Eclipse website (last time I paid attention) with more rumored at third-party locations. You can change any Eclipse spin into any other spin by adding/removing plugins. But it's generally easier to find a spin that approximates what you want to do and start there.
Loudly announcing something is true and finding out you're wrong makes you feel foolish.
Finding out you're wrong and refusing to admit it makes you LOOK foolish.
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
