Note: I am specifically discussing JBoss Developer Studio, which is Eclipse with some pre-installed plugins.

After years of evading any interaction with Java, I'm playing catch-up. Eclipse is proving crucial in minding the myriad details of Maven, class relationships, and the sheer redundant verbosity of Java syntax.

Bloated? For Python or PHP or JavaScript, yeah. When working in those languages I still prefer a code editor (e.g., Sublime or Notepad++) over a full-on IDE.

However, Java's fundamental nature can't be corralled by "just" a code editor. Don't bring a knife to a gunfight.

The basic difference between Eclipse and NetBeans is that Eclipse is more of a framework that hosts different language- and task-specific components; the Java editor and the Python editor are really different applications, not a single editor with different settings. Eclipse and NetBeans have different design philosophies, and that's fine. I happen to like Eclipse's philosophy.

Best environment I've ever used for C/C++ development. Nothing else comes close. Being able to navigate around the code to goto a variable definition, or search for references of a method make it superior.

Very "professional".

Is it secure to accept:

  • invalid/expired and weak (md2/md5 signatures from the 90's) certificates during the installation otherwise it will not be installed?

Eclipse is the IDE that you can write program almost every platform like android, Arm based stm32fxxx series microcontroller or the java. Beside there is tons of documents about ide. So go for it.
