I have been to Alexa.com and have used the Website Traffic Comparisons |
between the Eclipse download page with Netbeans. 12 month ago Eclipse was
the double of Netbeans and now Eclipse is about the same ?
I think we need to analyze these features because I also noticed less and
less interest among users for plugins.
I asked two majors french groups about what is going on and I got strange
answers: They said to me :
- It is almost easier to migrate from Eclipse 3.3 to Netbeans than to
upgrade all their existing plugins to Eclipse 3.4.
- I like to use an IDE but I don't really need all this framework
approach. Eclipse is too big and not flexible if just used as an IDE.
- I only use Eclipse as a visual Editor because the continuous integration
is based on Maven and launching Maven from Eclipse is not really possible
and not needed.
My personal feeling is Eclipse is a lot better than NetBeans but we are
currently not understanding users demands are therefore loosing market
I believe that a maven project for continuous integration should be
launched at the foundation level. Could the Eclipse foundation consider my
post and take it into consideration in the future Eclipse evolution.
I hope that next year when coming back to Alexa that Eclipse will again be
double of Netbeans :-)
