Pros
The Auto Doc Features, Inbuilt Console, Now the Dark Mode made eclipse a good Ide to work on. I recommend to fellows for working on it and the Best Part It's Free.
So for different projects and different languages you do not need to switch the IDE. Really loved it and really recommend using it.
Development with Eclipse is a hiccup free experience and has pretty reliable integration with GIT and contains lots of plugins to extend its features.
Cons
Setting up of eclipse is a tad tiresome. If you are not used to use this IDE, it will be hard to understand the project explorer.
Uses more RAM and becomes slow. Difficult to use for languages other than Java.
Nothing to dislike but it not support web development and it takes more memory location.

Eclipse changed the developer world

Reviewed a year ago

Consolidating the development environment using Eclipse for huge teams, spread all around the globe, helped to avoid loosing time to support more than on IDE and to maintain specific configurations which may be needed. We exported Eclipse configurations and even had a small team to certificate and manage internal plugins distributions, ensuring that the development work machinery was not stopped due to environment issues.

Pros

Eclipse IDE offers the capability to allow the users to develop plugins, which in my company was a killer feature because we had many proprietary languages that required also proprietary IDE. The plugins we developed helped a lot our dev teams community (about +1000 developers), bringing more efficiency and fun to the coding / testing / debugging activities.

Cons

If your application is too big, building it can cause the interface to hang, so, better to take coffee, a walk, to give time to Eclipse finish the process.

Best IDE for Web Development

Reviewed 3 months ago

Its great to use and lot better than most of the IDE's which are used for similar purpose

Pros

The IDE is small in size and provides a lot of features and only the extensions which we are using in the project, we can just add that in our project, thus making the final Jar smaller, which is a very good feature. I really like the IDE this way.

Cons

The collaboration with other tools is a bit of research that needs to be done in order to use it correctly

My Review of Eclipse IDE

Reviewed a month ago

My overall experience with Eclipse IDE is not good.

Pros

I like that I can integrate 3rd party applications with Eclipse IDE to manage my API to test my back-end. Also, I like that Eclipse IDE provides a range of programming languages for different use. Eclipse IDE doesn't consume much memory which is good.

Cons

I don't like the interface of Eclipse IDE as it is difficult in managing environments. Eclipse IDE is not good for beginners as there is little documentation and tutorials that explain how to use it. Also, there is no feature for collaborative work.

Experience with Eclipse IDE

Reviewed 4 months ago

The IDE was used for the development of applications and extensions of monitoring tools. In addition to the implementation of devops flows.

Pros

It is very easy to customize and extend it based on plugins, in addition to the debugging functions that allow the development of applications to be simpler, being able to condition the execution to the productive environment for which the application is intended.

Cons

The IDE has a lot of plugins and many of them are not compatible, and you can only tell when you are using the IDE, causing it to become unstable.
