#Great compatibility.#Free to use Eclipse IDE.#Highlight in syntax when while writing code.#Inbuilt terminal to see the output of the code, which saves time. We don't need to go to CMD every time.

Pros

#Eclipse is a most used open source IDE (integrated development environment) for java development. #It provides best platform on which we software engineers develops apps specially in java and websites code. #It helps us by providing no of features related to development like importing libraries, sharing files, file management, better UI and many more.#We can also Push and Pull the code on Git-hub directly.#It also helps in writing bug free code by assisting while writing code i.e. auto suggestion. This IDE is famous for java development.

Cons

#It need large memory footprint in computer memory.#As it is heavy tool so it takes time to launch and sometimes slows down the system.#We don't get so much features for other language other than JAVA.# Web development is also not supported.

I'm very glad to work with Eclipse because some of the standardised coding get to know by this IDE only. Easy to work and use and test with this. I will strongly recommend Eclipse for software development. Some of the alternatives are there for Eclipse but those are not replaceable with Eclipse.

Pros

1. The most common thing is GUI, every developer easily interact without any prior knowledge.2. Inbuilt plug-ins allows user to use common functionalities.3. Features that contains Eclipse IDE allow developer to follow coding standards and ease the developer routine work.4. It has internal functions to develop, test and deploy tools.

Cons

From past few years I'm using Eclipse IDE for development. I didn't find any improvements as of now. It improves and release latest versions every year.

Good for java dev

good depending on what you wan to do with it

Pros

good features for java development and some compile options. so many different java platforms and this is able to maintain all of them and switch. good plugins for java frameworks.

Cons

using a plugin for an alternative language, even something like ColdFusion which sits on top of Java, is very cumbersome and not that great.

I will recommend all fellow developers to use Eclipse IDE

Reviewed on 2023/06/08

Pros

Extensibility: Eclipse's core strength lies in its extensibility. The IDE is built on a modular architecture, allowing developers to add functionality through a vast array of plugins. This extensibility makes Eclipse highly adaptable to different programming languages, frameworks, and project requirements.Language Support: Eclipse provides excellent support for a wide range of programming languages, including Java, C/C++, Python, JavaScript, PHP, and more. It offers features specific to each language, such as syntax highlighting, code completion, debugging, and refactoring, ensuring a productive coding experience across various development domains.

Cons

Resource Intensive: Eclipse is known to be resource-intensive, especially when working on larger projects. It can consume a significant amount of memory and processing power, which may impact the overall performance of the IDE and slow down the development process, particularly on less powerful machines.

This is the best IDE for professional developers with ease of access to all the configurations and API integration. They provide a market place, there we can get more additional features that our project requires. And I am using this IDE daily for my daily software developement routine.

Pros

Simple user interface with various configuration made this IDE more attractive and proven its quality in the market. we can adjust all the configuration to the advanced level to deal complex projects in simpler manner.

Cons

Though the user-interface is simpler, it looks older. So that it needs to be modernized. Mobile development and live server integration are the areas need to be improved in Eclipse IDE.
