Where else would you go for Java?

Making backend programming for a tool look like a cake walk.

Pros

The best place for Java developers. It helps you with writing your code seamlessly. Provides you with a wide range of plugins and perspective to connect with your tool which uses Java as backend.

Cons

Nothing at all. Amazing product. Best one till date.

Robust system with flexibility

Pros

Eclipse provides a very detailed project costing system that provides great analysis from the field to the office. They have improved the financial reporting and drill down functionality significantly from previous Explorer software packages. It allows for equipment utilization reports, job cost reporting and other functions. Eclipse has many modules to choose from and allows you to purchase what you need and add more later.

Cons

Eclipse is somewhat complex in the setup and I would ensure that your company has someone with a background in system implementations to ensure the product is setup the way you desire. Depending on your location they do not necessarily have local support to help with the implementation and the costs to cover travel are pretty high.

this is the best out there?

Pros

Supposedly - the best for distribution - with regards to forcasting, purchasing, inventory, email, ftp, flat files, reporting is good - if you can figure out how to get the data out. most users / companies can't or spend years trying to ....

Cons

1. company has been bought and sold many times in 15 years. Each time the new company tries to squeeze its users so the new company can implement cost savings and pay for their acquisition. ie outsourcing their customer service reps to other countries without having any training. so until you escalate and waste time, you don't get the question/issue resolved until you wind up back with some cust. service agent in America. 2. lacks automation. There are so many software companies popping up that automate sales and purchasing tasks, eclipse relies on Q's and user interactions instead of rules. 3. Not flexible in they SOP's you have to conform or your doing it wrong. 4. any mod is 10k plus - (if they even have time to quote you -) 5. you can't get much outside help for it - not too many people know universe databases or PIC programming language. 6. I could go on but I won't, is not a good look for a business. 7. very expensive.

Eclipse Review

my work is mainly with JAVA, so eclipse has helped me to easily deal with the daily development of my coding activities since it is based precisely on Java

Pros

I like eclipse as ide because it easily shows the errors and possible solutions to the most common ones, as well as easy to implement testing tools

Cons

There are times when Eclipse is not able to correctly describe errors to different from other IDEs.
