I've been using Elcipse for a couple of years now, having previously used NetBeans.|
I'm afraid I cannot say that I think Eclipse is better, but that's not up for discussion here.
One question I have is about Java Libraries. In NetBeans, outside of a project, you can create libraries. When you define a library you specify where the JARs are, then optionally you can specify where the JavaDoc and the source are. When you come to use a library in a project you add the library from the list of supplied or self defined and away you go. When debugging NetBeans knows where the docs/source are, and when you build in the distribution folder there is a folder of any external jars you need.
Under Eclipse I haven't found out how do do a similar thing. I have found under prefs you can create user libs, but you seem to have to specify the doc/source location each time you create a new project. Also the projects don't seem to hold a reference of which user libs are being reference, so each time you check out a project you need to configure it.
Am I missing something?
