Eclipse is in my opinion one of the worst IDE's EVER!!!!11!
It's slow, starting takes like forever and debugging is a real pain in the ass!

I really miss Visual Studio :(

    You don't appreciate Visual Studio until you try other options

    Did you try IntelliJ by any chance?

    IMHO Eclipse isn't that bad. I run some IDEs based on Eclipse in a dual core with 4GB of RAM and works fine.
    Also, the debug it's amazing for me.
    Try setting the Optimization level to a lower value, the code will compile faster. When you need to deploy use -O3 and wait.

    People who complain about eclipse have just never heard about intellij. It's even better for java than visual studio is for c#. Visual studio has a good debuuger but intellij pips it overall as it has a great emphasis on keyboard use, leading to rapid developing. Please Stop complaining and take the time to look at intellij.

    @robsbobs "People who complain about eclipse have just never heard about intellij" -> wat?
    Yes intellij is better but why would that stop you from complaining about Eclipse? They aren't even related. You'd switch to intellij *because* you complain about and hate Eclipse.

    @RememberMe sorry I was prob a bit cryptic there. Lol. I mean once you use intellij eclipse instantly becomes completely irrelevant and you never use it again. You don't complain about irrelevant things do you? You move on

    @robsbobs you're assuming people have a choice though. Eclipse is deployed widely in enterprise environments, and since it was pretty much the first hackable IDE most specialized development environments (embedded systems etc.) use Eclipse.

    @robsbobs It's simple:
    Eclipse/NetBeans: free for commercial use;
    IntelliJ: free for Open Source projects.

    Companies love free things.

    @LuxARTS yup. Don’t use eclipse directly, but I use a cool daemon that lets a text editor of my choice (Spacemacs, but it also works in vim) interface with a headless instance of eclipse.
    It’s mighty powerful and fast as fuck.

    @RememberMe. Maybe. However Ive worked in very large enterprises and medium sized ones. In both places developers just ignored the licence types and downloaded intellij community free edition. The business didn't know or seem to have opinion. Just my experience though.

    I use Jetbrains' IDEs and they are going down the same path. The memory consumption is just ridiculous.

    Visit our kind , at jetbrains ides . You will realize the meaning of loving a painful ide

    The worst things are the embedded IDEs thst are build on stone age versions of eclipse and you have no other choice than to use them...

    @robsbobs Until the enterprise receive a big complaint and they fire you.

    @HnDev Actually the memory consumption it's not a BIG problem. RAM isn't very expensive these days. The big problem IMO it's the CPU. Even a faster one takes some time to optimize and compile. And those who doesn't, are so expensive.

    @LuxARTS tell that to someone with a MacBook Pro :)

    @HnDev MacBook for programming? Ewww

    Jetbrains IDEs are digging their own grave. The new double shift search window takes about 1 second to load...not very good when you want to switch between files very fast. Also I read they added search delay while typing.
    Shame, but for me, there is no real alternative yet.

    THIS

    This is the main reason why I pickup .NET over Java!!

    I see. In a few years it's no more 'there's an app for that!' but 'there's an intellij ide for that!'

    Btw, I love Jetbrains IDEs. #fanboy

    @Sabro sounds like your stockholm syndrome kicks in D:

    @lamka02sk Strange. Didn't face this problem. I use both Idea and Pycharm and searching is instantaneous.
    Maybe you don't have that good specs?
