Of course java-power-assert is not working
with Eclipse. Its implementation is using javac internal classes (com.sun.*
packages). It would not be too difficult to get the same functionality
using eclipse JDT APIs. At least it might be something worth investigating
if this is really something that prevent users from switching to Eclipse.

[....] Here's an example that Netflix uses heavily, java-power-assert.
From the readme:
> Currently, java-power-assert only works on code compiled with
javac. This means it works in IntelliJ IDEA, gradle, etc. Notably,
it does not work in Eclipse
If you work at Netflix and you use IntelliJ, then all
of your failed assertions get diagrammed out in little ASCII-art diagrams
showing the value of all the expressions which didn't match. If you
use eclipse, then you don't.
I had never heard of these issues before I talked to this
guy. Anyone else have any stories from switchers? Not forum
trolls, but technical decision makers?
