Application Lifecycle Management at Eclipse

subversion-logo

The Eclipse Foundation has evolved a pretty impressive application lifecycle management story. Based on what I’ve observed over the years, I believe that it’s completely reasonable to say that our ALM story is one of the best in the world: the envy of hundreds of open source projects and closed source development shops around the world. I believe that our ...

As I have written, Eclipse is celebrating 10 years of open source and community during the month of November. There have been a number of milestones that have shaped the Eclipse community but what have been the major accomplishments? What has Eclipse done to actually change the software industry? Here are what I see as some of the key accomplishments ...

Launching and Debugging Tomcat from Eclipse without complex plugins

eclipse-logo

Modern IDEs like Eclipse provide various Plugins to ease web developement. However, I believe that starting Tomcat as “normal” Java application still provides the best debugging experience. Most of the time, this is because these tools launch Tomcat or any other servlet container as external process and then attach a remote debugger on it. While you’re still able to set ...

Intellij vs. Eclipse

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

Choosing the right IDE can make you or break you as a coder. Most developers would be lost without the comfort of their preferred IDE, which takes care of classpath, make files, command line arguments, etc. The problematic dependence on the IDE, while very beneficial, is off topic and a discussion for another post. We concentrate on 2 main platforms, ...

Eclipse Code Formatting Tips

eclipse-logo

I have been assigned lately some code review/ quality code fix tasks, on a large enterprise Java project and I am trying to assist the existing software development team, while waiting to resume my old duties on another project. Kind of fun, but at the same time dangerous enough, since you don’t want to break anything important or ruin the work of ...

Change Without Redeploying With Eclipse And Tomcat

eclipse-logo

They say developing Java is slow because of the bloated application servers – you have to redeploy the application to see your changes. While PHP, Python, etc. scripting languages, allow you to “save & refresh”. This quora question summarizes that “myth”. Yup, it’s a myth. You can use “save & refresh” in java web applications as well. The JVM has ...

What’s Cool In IntelliJIDEA. Part III: External Tools

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

Although there is almost any kind of functionality available in IntelliJIDEA, either as a base functionality or via plugins, there’s still a fraction of probability involved that you might want to do something that goes beyond the power of the IDE. For such rare cases you might want to take a look at External Tools in IntelliJ. Just recently I’ve ...

What’s Cool In IntelliJIDEA. Part II: Live Templates

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

In IntelliJ, I use Live Templates quite heavily and still think that these are underused. It is not only the standard number of templates that can make your life easier while typing yet another piece of code, but it is also the ability to define new templates with all the bells and whistles that are available in IntelliJ standard template ...

What’s Cool In IntelliJIDEA Part I

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

Eclipse or IntelliJ? NetBeans or Eclipse? IntelliJ or NetBeans? The dispute about the IDEs is the most popular among the software developers and hardly will ever end. I consider myself being a big IntelliJ fan, but I do realize that there are a lot of things that IntelliJ could do better and that NetBeans and Eclipse are better in some ...

Eclipse 3.6 vs IntelliJ IDEA 10.5: Pros and Cons

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

After having worked with Eclipse for over 5 years I’ve came to use IntelliJ IDEA intensively on a J2EE project in three months and took this as an opportunity to compare the two. You can’t really compare 5 years and 3 months but I still believe that it is long enough to get a pretty good overview of what a ...
