|Re: [ide-dev] Java IDEs comparison|
My 5 cent: consistency, consistency and again consistency...
Problems that I always hear from IDEA/Neatbeans fan’s. I know that lot’s of them are already on bugzilla.
1. Language-specific perspective is a horrible idea as they mostly replace Project Explorer by <Language_Name> Explorer, simplify “New” menu, overwrite default ctrl/cmd+shift+t and add couple tabs to bottom area. For me Java/RAP/PHP/CDT in future could have by default only two perspectives opened: Resource (please rename it) and Debug.
2. Madness in “New” wizard first page. Netbeans/IDEA have strong separation between creating project and file (any other element)
3. Working sets, one of most powerfull thing in eclipse isn’t widely supported across projects, examples:
3.1. “Window Working Set” entry sometimes isn’t available in fast view menu (Platform views), sometimes is (JDT school based views)
3.2. Working sets types not always available between views, for example still is not possible to import existing project into mylyn working set directly
4. Lot’s of problems and incositency between editors. Eclipse 4.7 may bring a hope ;)
5. Lack of suport for in-languages (SQL, template engines, etc...). Writing support for them across file types is mostly immpossible becuase most editors haven’t generic (any) support for color and assist extensions.
6. Freezing UI during CA. Still may happen, especially if extension need access to web during CA and something goes wrong. Bugzilla record pending since years.
