Enterprise Developers: Apple Looks At Eclipse On OS X

The Mac Observer - Enterprise Developers: Apple Looks At Eclipse On OS X
Software developers can have it rough; they toil, working on a bit of code under often impossible deadlines. While they make a decent salary, they make nothing like the money Hollywood would have you believe. Programmers don't exert themselves physically, but the mental strain in producing good code can be as rough as wielding a sledge hammer all day.

Good tools can make a programmer's job easier, and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) were created for the express purpose of making the tasks programmers face less formidable. What's an IDE? Think of it as a plumber's tool belt, or a carpenter's workbench, for developers. An IDE contains all of the tools necessary for a programmer, or group of programmers to plan, develop, test and deploy new software.

Of course, there are tools that can create an IDE also, and this is particularly true in the enterprise space. One of the more widely used IDE tools in that space is called Eclipse, an Open Source application originated by IBM, and released to the Open Source community in 2001.

Enterprise developers working in OS X need not feel left out, however, because Eclipse runs natively in OS X also. Apple's Developer Connection has posted an in-depth look at Eclipse in general, and the OS X implementation of Eclipse in particular; here is an excerpt of the article, Eclipse and Mac OS X: A Natural Combination:
