This is because, unless I've been totally blind for many years as an
Eclipse user, Eclipse doesn't offer anything even remotely similar thing
I do a lot of exactly what you're talking about, but I use vim to write
Eclipse is also insanely great for writing stuff in PHP.
I have never seen a way for Eclipse to "connect to a webserver" for
downloading pages (HTML files) to it. The rest of us create WAR files,
zips, tarballs, etc. which we transport to a webserver via scripts, by
hand, etc. I maintain my web pages via WinSCP or ssh/scp (from Linux).
So, no Eclipse doesn't directly support great web page design and editing.
If I'm wrong in any of this and just haven't been paying attention, I
hope someone else will comment.
There are alternatives to Dreamweaver, but that discussion isn't
properly one for this forum. I'd answer that anyway, but in fact, I
would never consider writing web pages in anything else but vim, so I'm
just not a good person to comment on the topic.
