Found on GitHub, https://github.com/srp7474/jEdit-Eclipse-Interface/blob/master/README.md the jEdit/Eclipse Interface Tools repo contains the tools (windows based) that are used to build an interface between jEdit and Eclipse.|
This is my opportunity to give back to the community.
The rational for this is as follows:
Eclipse is the best ever compiler with fantastic dependency checking and incremental compile facilities. jEdit will never catch up.
jEdit is a very flexible editor built by programmers for programmers. I have already added several customizations such as hotJump that have saved plenty of time. Its hypersearch capability is the best find interface I have ever used, especially for program code files. Eclipse will never catch up.
Eclipse provides the capability to listen to the compile errors. The UDPMarkerListener provided in this repo does just that. It compresses the compile error message(s) into a single package and broadcasts it via a UDP port.
The other part, the jEdit plugin called UDPErrors listens for the broadcast and populates the Error window provided by the ErrorList plugin.
Besides being pleasant to use, my productivity since implementing this interface has dramtically increased.
The result is that I am able to benefit from the best-of-breed qualities of two components required for speedy program development.

Probably Eclipse search capabilities are as good as (or better with Java since it has parsed the code) once learned.
I thought search was your main point, well ...
However, from what I understand Eclipse editors have no Multi-Cursor support (column mode editing)
In case column mode editing == column selection mode, see 3rd item in http://help.eclipse.org/neon/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/reference/views/ref-java-editor.htm
and macro support.
This could be provided by Eclipse EASE, but I've never used that.
single key cut/copy/paste
Keybindings can be reconfigured of course, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "single key".
auto-save on task switch
Eclipse has auto-save, if that isn't smart enough, a RFE should have good chances.
I agree, that some of these features may not directly jump in your face, but most of them are certainly available.
