Tips And Tricks

  • How to set UTF-8 for JavaDoc in Eclipse?
    • export -> javadoc -> next -> in extra vm options write -encoding UTF-8 -charset UTF-8 -docencoding UTF-8

Plugins

We recommend to install all plugins over the Eclipse market place function. This approach worked well for Eclipse Indigo. This Eclipse version has already Mylyn, and JUnit installed with the distribution.
  • Continuous Integration
  • Clean Code and Test Driven Development (eXtreme Programming techniques)
    • eclEmma for code coverage, uses the JaCoCo framework for computing the code coverage
    • CheckStyle Plugin for static code analysis
    • FindBugs Plugin for static code analysis
    • PMD Plugin for static code analysis. It seems that updated versions for newer Eclipse versions are no more distributed.
  • Utilities
    • Logviewer for simple log files analysis
    • JVM Monitor for resource usage during application execution

History

  • The installation of service pack one for Eclipse Juno destroyed my installation. I had to download a clean version of Eclipse and reinstall all plugins. Thanks to the above information the clean installation took around 15 minutes.
