Robert McGovern is a software developer for an international high voltage power supply company doing embedded . However, I want to point out that this book is "A Guide for Java Developers". So the target audience is for a Java Developer.

Robert McGovern is a software developer for an international high voltage power supply company doing embedded development. He has a degree in artificial intelligence and is a member of the IEEE and the ACM. His personal interest is in Java & Ruby and he has been involved in computers and programming since the days of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. The book starts out with a great introduction into Eclipse and the how the IDE comes together in the workbench. The moves right into the Java development with Eclipse.

I was kind of expected this book to give lots of detailed information about configuring and using Eclipse. Most of the first seven chapters were useful - if you were new to using Eclipse as an IDE. However, if you have a few years of Eclipse behind you these chapters are very introduction type. If you have some time with Eclipse and where looking for a detailed index of all the things that you can set and the best ways to do them then you will be disappointed.

This book is a fast-paced but thorough guide to the effective use of Eclipse's features and plugins for real-world Java development. Interesting examples demonstrate how to use Eclipse to build, test, and debug applications using the tools provided by Eclipse as well as third-party plugins. Learn how to use Eclipse tools in a team environment, including Ant for moresophisticated build processes and CVS for source control.

A guide for java developers. This book is designed to help you use Eclipse to its fullest potential. David gallardo ED burnette. Robert McGovern would like to thank David and Ed for letting him join in the fun and games, Mary Piergies for leading him through, and the rest of the fantas-tic team at Manning. Special thanks to Joy, Kieran, Samuel, and finally to Rob-erta, his wife, for her understanding and encouragement. Its pri-mary focus is using Eclipse as a Java IDE, but for more advanced developers, additional information is provided to help you extend Eclipse for other lan-guages and applications.

Eclipse In Action is written with Java developers in mind and leads you through the major functionality and extensibility of the IDE through in depth examples. The examples are great and have a nice depth (they don't feel as contrived as most examples in books like this). This has some definite benefits - you feel like you're getting real-life experience by doing examples and it makes the book smoother to read front to back. However, there is a drawback - this book doesn't always make a handy reference to put on the shelf

Eclipse is a new open-source, Java-based, extensible development platform designed for nothing in particular but everything in general. Because of its roots, it is currently most popular as a Java integrated development environment (IDE). Eclipse ships with plugins for writing and debugging Java code. Additional plugins for more advanced Java development, such as JSP/servlets, are available from third parties.

This book provides a thorough guide to using Eclipse features and plugins effectively in the context of real-world Java development. Realistic examples demonstrate how to use Eclipse effectively to build, test and debug applications using the tools provided by Eclipse and other third-party open source plugins. The reader will learn how to use plugin tools for using Eclipse in a team environment, including using Ant for more sophisticated build processes and CVS for source control. Plugin-ins for building web applications, using J2EE technologies, such as JSP/Servlets and EJB, are also discussed.

Complementing this coverage of Eclipse in the context of development is a reference providing a comprehensive guide to Eclipse. Because Eclipse and its plugins provide a remarkable array of features, it is often hard to learn what features are available and how they can be invoked. This reference lays things out clearly: feature-by-feature, menu-by-menu.

This book talks about Eclipse v2.1, then illustrates using Java, JUnit, log4j, ant, CVS, Tomcat, and JSP, all according to the coding practices 11 years ago. It's only an accident that some of these products are still used today, and almost work the way they did 11 years ago. To add some context, that was before java generics were introduced. Did you notice the publication date? The second half covers how to develop Eclipse plugins, for version 2.1, which I'm sure was very helpful to plugin developers 11 years ago. Incidentally, it's also probably a good idea to notice the dates on the glowing user reviews. Personally, I find it difficult to learn anything when I have to mentally filter out so much history that I'm trying my best to forget. As for content, assuming you were thinking about buying this book for something to do with Eclipse, you shouldn't learn anything that you can't quickly figure out on your own. Just jump in and start using it. 3 stars for the cover, and admittedly the spine is still intact.

I received this book to day, and am embarrassed to admit that I didn't realize earlier how old of a book this is. It was published in 2003, and is based on Eclipse 2.1, while the current stable build is 3.7. This may still give a useful description of Eclipse, but I'm really not interested in taking time to read a book about where Eclipse was in 2003, and then try to figure out what has and what has not changed. Look for a more current resource. I will.

I reviewed Eclipse In Action to familiarize myself with the IDE Eclipse. My main focus while reading the book was to learn all I can about developing with Eclipse. I wanted to be able to utilize all the features that Eclipse has to offer, not only in terms of Java developer, but also as a web developer. However, I want to point out that this book is "A Guide for Java Developers". So the target audience is for a Java Developer.

The book starts out with a great introduction into Eclipse and the how the IDE comes together in the workbench. The moves right into the Java development with Eclipse. It wastes no time getting to the meat of development with Junit, Log4j, testing, debugging, and Ant integration. Not to mention a chapter on CVS integration. The book everything that a developer needs during the development life cycle of their project. The authors do a great job in adding additional information on the features that Eclipse has to offer to help alleviate the remedial tasks during development. Many of these features can be used outside of Java development.

Part 2 of Eclipse In Action deals with extending Eclipse and creating Eclipse plugins (the foundation of Eclipse). These chapters give a great novice introduction into Eclipse plugin development; however, there seems to be lacking detail into SWT/JFace and advanced plugin development.

Overall Eclipse In Action provides an indepth look into the Eclipse IDE. I would recommend this book to anyone that want to use Eclipse as their IDE. I have been using Eclipse for over a year now and I use it for all languages I develop with, like Java and PHP. Though the book focuses on the Java Developer, this also lends it way into development with other languages.

This book is great. I'm a new eclipse user and relatively new to java and jsp. The short tutorials on tools like JUNIT and ANT were NOT lost on me. This book does a good job in teaching you how to get around in Eclipse 2.x and also good programming practices. You learn the interface while actually developing examples. In stead of a book listing all of the features and how to use them you learn the interface and how to use features in the normal course of programming. I love this book. I bought this shortly before Eclipse 3.0 came out and I was still able to use this book to help me get around in 3.0. Some things were in different places in 3.x, but the functionality was still there. You see online tutorials for the extra features of 3.x. Excellent book I would recommend especially those new to programming.

p.s.
About 40% of the book is related to extending eclipse. I have not read that part of the book and my review has nothing to do with that part of the book.

For anyone that doesn't know about it, Eclipse is an IDE that is freely available and is usable for really just about anything. It's designed for versatility and it succeeds brilliantly. Of course, with increased versatility usually comes increased complexity. Eclipse In Action is written with Java developers in mind and leads you through the major functionality and extensibility of the IDE through in depth examples. The examples are great and have a nice depth (they don't feel as contrived as most examples in books like this). This has some definite benefits - you feel like you're getting real-life experience by doing examples and it makes the book smoother to read front to back. However, there is a drawback - this book doesn't always make a handy reference to put on the shelf. To figure out how something works, sometimes I find myself looking back a chapter or two to see how the example works so that I can work forward. I found that this book lent itself to being read straight through rather than picking out chapters to read individually. I found the book easy and enjoyable to read, although you'll probably want to be sitting in front of your computer working along to get the most out of it. The technical information is dead on and I found few mistakes - the editing is done very well. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to get the most out of Eclipse.
