I don't think I've ever heard anyone who uses Eclipse talk about how much they like it, yet it has still managed to become a pervasive IDE. I actually do use as my main IDE in the form of IBM's Rational Application Developer for WebSphere. I've never been a fan of the cluttered interface, but its tight integration with WebSphere App Server and access to IBM's tech support outweigh the negatives. I suspect IBM's commercialization and support of Eclipse probably has a lot to do with its pervasiveness. It's probably going to be a known quantity for a lot of developers who work at large IBM shops. Rocket's choice may be a sensible one if they aim to make U2 more appealing to larger companies.

Just about every programmer I know (java,.net,web,php etc) has eclipse installed yet not one of them uses it as their main ide. Things like VS, netbeans, inteliJ make much more sense. _______________________________________________ U2-Users mailing list U2-Users@listserver.u2ug.org http://listserver.u2ug.org/mailman/listinfo/u2-users
