Fedora Core 4's Native Eclipse, Is it Ready for Prime Time?
One of the new additions of Fedora Core 4 is a natively compiled version of Eclipse. I took it for a spin to see if it is a suitable replacement for "regular" Eclipse. Some background: I currently make a living developing Java EE applications. My current project has over a quarter of a million lines of Java code, plus a ton of JSPs, SQL scripts and other supporting files. I use Eclipse as my IDE of choice since it has a lot of features to make developer's lives easier.
