Using java on eclipse for first year uni course. Is eclipse good for anything else other than Java?
>>
its not even good for java
>>
Eclipse is garbage. Use IntelliJ.
>>
Use Sublime Text. Eclipse is unwieldy and bloated.
>>
As a newbie at Java, I really fucking like it. Better than BlueJ, which I had to use for my first programming course.
>>
It's complete shit.
Use NetBeans

or >>51544394 if you don't mind a proprietary ide you'll have to pay for once you're no longer studying
>>
It does its job if you can learn how to use it.
>>
I hate it for C, C++.

It feels like standard Java produced shitware, screw it.
>>
Eclipse sucks, if you're not a plugin developer.
>>
>>51544409
Yeah, BlueJ is even worse.
Doesn't make Eclipse good though.

Do you go to a state school in the deep south OP?

Eclipse is garbage but so is Java.

Probably just a non-tech school with a tech department. They mostly just pump out code monkeys so most of their courses are java and web dev.
>>
>>51544484
???

>>51544353
use Netbeans
>>
>>51544442
Actually the community edition is Apache 2.0 licensed and doesn't cost anything.
>>

They still teach that garbage?

Sickening, just sickening.
>>
>>51544654
Oh right.
Not for me, since it lacks EE integration but probably good enough for OP.

Sublime is still awesome.

And the concept of a programmable text editor is great for wiring code, since it can do exactly what you want without becoming a bloated piece of shit.
>>
Java should just collect itself.
>>
>>51544760
>And the concept of a programmable text editor is great for wiring code,

So just use Emacs.

more like efficient
enjoy typing out names like RefreshAuthorizationPolicyProtocolServerSideTranslatorPB like its still the stone age. I don't even know how to spell half the java classes. Sometime, the suggestions are so smart I just press Ctrl Space once and it just types out the whole program for me (saved quite a bit of time in university)
>>
>>51544353
its java, the class code will be the same, no matter what IDE you use. I like eclipse and never had problems with it
>>
>>51544353
The UI is a hot steaming pile of shit
>>
>>51544506
Not everyone can be a c++ developer
>>
No it sucks. I work with it daily unfortunately.
>>
>>51544804
Yes, Emacs is great too.

I prefer Sublime for the plugins though.
>>
>>51545046
Are you kidding me?

Do you have any idea about the insane amount of plugins Emacs has available?
It has everything
.

Stanford teaches Java to first year CS students and also uses Eclipse.
>>
Eclipse is shit

Eclipse is shit OP.

Your school probably isn't allowed to distribute IntelliJ iDEA. It's the best IDE for Java out there, but it's proprietary.
Netbeans comes second, and is still miles better than Eclipse.

They probably want you to use Eclipse so you can look at the pretty little graphics that show classes in boxes, connected to each other, to show you how OOP works. It's bullshit anyway, you should be able to understand it mentally and not need it drawn.
>>
Intelij and if you like your sanity use android studio for Android dev.

NetBeans is also good, don't mind the shills focus on writing good software not on how elusive the language you use is.

I just like a couple specific plugins in Sublime and the way they work.

Nothing personal.
No need to sperg out about it.
>>
Eclipse is great for writing Java but pretty fucking shit at anything else. Especially web development.
>>
>>51544490
Top kek.
IntelliJ is indeed the best.
>>
>>51544400
Fuck that, you definitely want to be using an IDE with Java.

Sublime Text is for web development and writing scripts and shit.
>>
IMO, emacs is great for everything except Java, for which I use intellij. Anyone know of good java packages for emacs, or should I stick with intellij?

Eclim runs dog-slow for me, and I'm not sure why.
>>
>>51546337
Nothing out there is better than intellij when it comes to Java. Stick with it.
>>
>>51544353
Yeah.
Just allocate more memory to it, switch to a dark color scheme, maybe change the font, and you're golden.

Performs much better than LagtelliJ, don't even bother trying it
