A Concise Introduction to Eclipse for the Productive Programmer
Organized for rapid access, focused on productivity, Eclipse Distilled brings together all the answers you need to make the most of today's most powerful Java development environment. David Carlson introduces proven best practices for working with Eclipse, and shows exactly how to integrate Eclipse into any Agile development process.
Part I shows how to customize workspaces, projects, perspectives, and views for optimal efficiency—and how to leverage Eclipse's rapid development, navigation, and debugging features to maximize both productivity and code quality. Part II focuses entirely on Agile development, demonstrating how Eclipse can simplify team ownership, refactoring, continuous testing, continuousintegration, and other Agile practices. Coverage includes
Managing Eclipse projects from start to finish: handling both content and complexity
Using perspectives, views, and editors to work more efficiently
Setting preferences to fit your own unique needs—or your team's
Leveraging Eclipse's powerful local and remote debugging tools
Understanding how Eclipse fits into contemporary iterative development processes
Performing continuous testing with JUnit in the Eclipse environment
Using Eclipse's wizard-assisted refactoring tools
Implementing continuous integration with Ant-based automated project builders
