Developing Java applications with Eclipse


Initially the Eclipse platform was designed as universal platform for the construction of IDEs. It is the basis for a 'full-function' environment for the development of Java applications. A number of commercial development tools, like e.g. IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD), are based on Eclipse.

At the end of this course:

  • the participant will have an insight in the possibilities of Eclipse as IDE for the development of applications;
  • the participant will be familiar with the Java Development Tools (JDT) of Eclipse:
  • the different perspectives, views and editors;
  • the basis of Java development.

For a detailed discussion about the development of applications with RAD see course Rational Application Developer (RAD).
