I'm an Eclipse newbie. I also have Netbeans installed. I downloaded & installed Intellij but I found it confusing so I uninstalled it. So, I'm going to experiment with both IDEs & choose which one I prefer.

I have a Mac. I downloaded & installed Xcode & tried out Swift. I also watched YouTube videos on how to create GUIs in Swift. Swift is fine if you don't want to create GUIs, but it's verbose if you want to create GUIs.

I want to be able to create a program on my Mac & "export" it to run on Windows.

It appears that you have more than one IDE. I'm intrigued that more than one language can run in a Java VM. I'd like to learn Jython & perhaps Groovy & Scala. Which Eclipse IDE do I use to create Java & Jython, Groovy & Scala programs?

I downloaded & installed the IDE.

I have more questions.

Does Eclipse support Jython & Groovy & other languages that run in the Java VM?

David,

The Eclipse IDE can support many things. On the download page or using
the Eclipse Installer you see a number of pre-packaged versions of it
available, but you can make your own package by installing additional
things into any one of them. E.g., you could install C/C++ support into
any of the packages you download, or you could download/install the
package that already contains it. As such, you can Google for (or use
Help -> Eclipse Market Place) to find the additional things you want to
install into whatever package you choose to start with.
