Convenient development for programming
A skilled programmer can change the world. However, creating applications from scratch is a very time-consuming and resource-intensive process. Therefore, experienced programmers use a special programming environment. One of the benchmark programs in this category is Eclipse, which we will tell you about.
What is this program
Eclipse is an open source software platform controlled by the Eclipse Foundation. It is written in the Java programming language and its main purpose is to increase the productivity of the software development process. Eclipse uses a platform-specific SWT library, the Standard Widget Toolkit.
Eclipse has earned its popularity due to the following features:
using Eclipse, you can program in many languages such as Java, C and C++, PHP, Perl, Python, Cobol and others;
it is a framework for developing other tools, and offers an extensive set API for creating modules;
using the RCP (Rich Client Platform) approach, Eclipse can be used as a tool for creating almost any client software.
The work on the Eclipse project is carried out in several directions, the main three are the work on the Eclipse platform, the development of the Java IDE, and the development of plugins to extend the functionality of Eclipse.
Who is this program for?
As an IDE for Java programmers, regardless of the type of project: web application, standalone program, SOAP and REST web services, or ESB components. Eclipse speeds up Java development by an order of magnitude compared to other options. This environment is suitable for both small and large teams;
The program is useful in small, medium and large organizations because of its ease of use and code support by the Eclipse user community;
When you have a serious project with several levels, you can easily build a complex architecture and work with it with no trouble. When creating a project from scratch, use multiple configurations to achieve the best results.
