The Eclipse IDE is the most commonly used IDE in the Java development with its different variants. It is a very powerful plugin-based IDE that can be customized according to the different needs.
Several profiling plugins are available for Eclipse, including plugins from famous third-party providers, such as JProfiler and YourKit. Also, some plugins such as Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) can be used to acquire an application's performance results. We will also cover the JVM monitor tool in brief, and in Chapter 8, Memory Profiling, we will discuss the Eclipse Memory Analyzer Tool (MAT).
Using the profilers from inside, IDEs help us produce good and optimized code during the development time.
