Even thought Scala is now among the trendy programming languages, it still misses a lot before it is considered as one of the major players. Most Scala programmers are they who are not satisfied with Java, so it’s natural that most of them were before programming with Java. One of the things Java programmers miss […]
The default theme of Eclipse is good, but I must admit that with some configuration, Vim can show code better. And this is pretty easy, just go to Google and search for ‘vim color’. I know from a long time ago that Eclipse allows us to change the color preference of our editor. Hence I […]
A seemingly interesting Eclipse plugin. Unfortunately it is not free.
Eclipse Helios has another subtle enhancement to the JDT. It is called as Open Implementation. So what’s that? Before we play around with the feature, let’s create some classes. Before Open Implementation is implemented, we have only Open Declaration with F3 as default keybinding. Try this on Eclipse before Helios. Put your text cursor on […]
I think I found a new habitat.

A nice series of effective teamworking with Eclipse. I might have one or two ideas that I want to share later. Stay tunes! Effective Teamworking With Eclipse: Change Sets Effective Teamworking With Eclipse: Highlighting Local Changes Effective Teamworking With Eclipse: Autosync With Version Control

RCP/SWT developers are facing this all the time. Point is a class in org.eclipse.swt.graphics, but it is also a class in java.awt. When […]
Some RCP-newbies are having difficulties to correctly setup their environment for RCP/Plugin development. Most of them are familiar with Eclipse but not using the Eclipse for RCP/RAP developers package. The problem is sneaky because everything is working except that you don’t get proposals when adding child to the extension. See the following video. How to […]
