So my role at the company is changing slightly. Due to a manpower shortage, I'll be back doing some server development. Fortunately, I sort of know my way around the modules this time, and so I don't expect many surprises to crop up. So, to make my life both simpler and more difficult at the same time, I've decided to try out a new IDE. That's right, instead of using IDEA, I'll be giving Eclipse a trial run. It hasn't been too bad so far, but I'm still kind of getting it set up to do the things I need it to.
My three main motivations for using Eclipse on this project are:
- I need to look at C++ code at the same time as Java code, since that's the only documentation we have for this project.
- The savings of an IDEA license are not inconsiderable.
- The co-worker who is working on it with me prefers Eclipse
