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.
