Showing of 29 reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This book is copyright Eclipse has changed a lot in 10 years.
Right from the start the dialog boxes you get don’t look like what you see in the book. Items you are told to select are in a different place from what the book shows, sometime very different. There are new features in Eclipze that were not there 10 years ago.
Usually you can figure out what you want to do but you will be MUCH better off with an up-to-date book. Hokzner used big time and expensive IDEs in my time, Together Control Center to name just one, and I was excited to finally get Eclipse and begin learning it. I always look for an O’Reilly book on a subject first because they are usually really good. This book, although good, misses the point of the title of the book.
Another reviewer pointed out that the first three chapters covers how to use Eclipse. The rest concentrate on actually using Eclipse to do each chapter’s small projects stwve GUI, Web, and plugins. I was looking for a book that covered Eclipse in total, how to use it, the neat stuff, everything that Eclipse has to offer. This book doesn’t even tell me how to makea bookmark in Eclipse.
eclipsee This book is not about 3. That is to be expected since software changes faster than authors can learn the new versions and write the words. There was less than 20 pages coverage of 3. I wouldn’t say this was a book for programmers, but the equivalent of a user’s manual for eclipse eclipse made EZ, or eclipse for VB programmers.
The first two chapters 60 pages is just telling you what the menu items do. Almost all the material in this book was covered in the Manning Eclipse in Action book. The exception being this book had 3 chapters 60 pages on gui and swtand a chapter on struts.
I only kept the book for that stuff. I get the impression this is just a knock-off that book so that O’Reilly gets some of the beginner market Probably not worth your time if you have used eclipse for more than 10 days I bought this book and have been making my way through it to teach myself about Eclipse.
I did fine for the first five chapters, but after that the trail grows cold because the book is based on Eclipse prior to the 3. I began having lots of problems because the instructions and screen shots no longer came close to matching what is actually in Eclipse stebe. So I gave up after chapter five. Outstanding book, right to the point on installation, configuration, adding plugins and integration of other products like tortoise or CVS.
Check the version you are or will be running and which version the book holznerr. One person found this helpful. The most important thing you have to know about this book is that it was written over 10 years ago, and there doesn’t seem to be any plan to bring it up to date, which is a shame. However, it’s not difficult to mentally map most of what you see in the book to a more recent Eclipse version; the stvee concepts haven’t changed all that much.
The problem is the content itself. Chapters 1, 2, and 3 cover Java development using Eclipse. The author assumes that you know a lot about Java programming, and just need a kickstart on how to do different things in Eclipse.
All in all good content, still pretty relevant even today in There’s probably a lot more new stuff that the author doesn’t cover here, but I was able to compile and run all of the examples using Mars. Chapters 9 and 10, though, digress again into web development: Finally, the book rounds out chapters 11 and 12 get into plugin development.
Unfortunately for me, since this was the part I was most interested in learning more about, this is the part that’s changed the most in modern Eclipse. I was able to get some of the examples to work, but not ecljpse of them. I don’t think it’s bh fair to review a book negatively just because it’s due for an update, but honestly, the content would have been pretty thin even back in when it was more relevant. The book is very short: Like I mentioned above, though, only half of what you do get is Eclipse specific.
The chapters on CVS, Ant, AWT, JSP and Struts almost half of the book feel like filler – each chapter seems to try to serve as a standalone reference to the respective topic, with an occasional nod toward “and, oh yeah, if you want to do this in Eclipse, there’s a plugin for that.
On the positive side, I did learn a thing or two about Eclipse, and the chapters on SWT were especially useful. Maybe O’Reilly can sfeve this title and give us an up-to-date edition that spends a lot more time talking about Eclipse and less time talking about peripheral topics.
