Is IntelliJ IDEA shining through Eclipse?

As a long time Eclipse user, I want to give a more serious look to IntelliJ IDEA. The people from JetBrains were very nice and granted me an open source license for the Podcastpedia.org  and Codingpedia.org projects.

However it turned out to be somewhat cumbersome to get it integrated into PDE and finally up and running as OSGi Service. Because of this I provided a P2 repository that contains ...

The auxiliary strives to reduce boilerplate code for common programming steps, while increasing development guidance and readability at the same time. This post is the promised follow-up that shows how to combine the utility with an AssertJ custom assert to write lightweight integration tests for Eclipse extensions. Eclipse Extensions ...

Coding Eclipse Extension Point evaluations comes in a bit verbose and sparsely self-explaining. As I got round to busy myself with this topic recently, I wrote a little helper with the intent to reduce boilerplate code for common programming steps, while increasing development guidance and readability at the same time. It turned out to be not that easy to find ...
