Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Eclipse Goodies.

Jeff Duska has some good links for Eclipse plug-ins. I use Jalopy (love it) and have Solareclipse installed (I use HomeSite/Dreamweaver for JSP editing). I will be downloading and installing the others today, just because.

  • Jalopy for Eclipse
    This works much better than the built in formatter in Eclipse 2.0
  • The Tomcat Plug-in
    If you do anything with Tomcat you'll want to have this. Make sure you have the latest update
  • CheckStyle
    Even you don't care for the the powerful tools to enforce name conventions -- get this for the cool TODO feature
  • Solareclipse
    Adds code code highlighting for JSP, HTML and more...
  • CompleteClipse
    The new statement completion that will part of 2.1 setup as a plug-in to work with 2.0. Provide automatic parameter selection... very nice!

I've also heard of XML Buddy, but have never been able to download it. I click "I Agree" on the download back, and "doh!" I end up back at their homepage. Sounds like a website bug to me. If anyone knows of an alternative link, let me know.

The whole can of worms! In my search for some more Eclipse plug-ins, I found a list of 126 plugins. I'll be bookmarking this page. This site is very nice in that it shows user's comments about plug-ins. I even noticed someone had my same XMLBuddy comment. No workaround response though. :(
