    I discovered yr bog today. I have been a user for Eclipse for last 3 years since 2.x series and have contributed indirectly making this platform popular worldwide by publishing tutorial on
    J2EE using Eclipse and JBoss.

    One thing I would like to day that now Eclipse is losing its buzz as compared to 2.x series esp. when it comes to J2EE development.
    out of box experience is really
    even with WTP. In that regard Netbeans has improved a lot from its dismal 4.x to 5.x series with support for Maven, SVN, UML (Reverse Engineering of code) and so forth. I think it will be good if Eclipse foundation can make this platform more seamless and concentrate on it core functionality rather expanding it everywhere.

    There are literally dozens of absolutely fantastic bundles with highly rated "out of the box" experiences built on Eclipse. Off the top of my head I'm thinking of Instantiations, MyEclipse, Yoxos, nexB. JBOSS has a great IDE, BEA has some great bundles with Workbench, IBM with Rational, there are many, many more. But you are right that the main eclipse SDK download from needs to continiously improve it's out-of-the-box experience to keep the growth acceleration going in the ecosystem. Thanks a lot for the comments btw, please feel free to drop me an email.
