I'm fond of Eclipse but I've in mind some thought about the future of
Eclipse. It seems to me that the Eclipse framework grows quite fast (a
good thing) but this growing could also involve a growing of the
complexity. Is there not a hazard to build a too complicated
infrastructure, to try to build the hyper-meta-generic tool? Libraries
like EMS, XSD, and so on, are zwar interesting but they are also very
complicated and not tool-supported. I fear that community efforts be
disseminated in exploring all these new libraries, instead of focusing
their efforts on main useful primary goals like :
- db access
- GUI builder
- Jsp and xml editing
(these are examples from my point of view)...
I think there is a question to ask for ; why so much people continue to
use tools like emacs, ultraedit, textpad, even if those tools are not so
powerful than Eclipse? IMO because they want a very light and
quick-to-launch tool... It is not either this kind of tool "xor" eclipse ;
I think it could be both... But we have to think about avoiding to build
today a developping plant by adding everyday a new module... It is
important to define today which kind of tool we want to target in the
future, and to be able to know if every our needs must be included in one
tool, or in a set of simple collaborative tools...
