Hi BsM
I can only answer to the ‘1-’ item =)
Java/JDK version 1.5+ it’s also called Java 5, so it’s as old as it seems.
For more info take a look at http://java.sun.com

Thanks for making Eclipse easy to start programming in minutes. I just want to report what I found from Google: the official Eclipse 3.3.2 maintenance release is probably due to occur around February 2008. I’ll be waiting for it to show up in EasyEclipse before I migrate from 1.2.2 to 1.3.x :)

Thanks for this lovely package. :) As a first-time user the amount of plugins available for Eclipse was definitely intimidating; to say the least. Now I get to try out Eclipse with all the cool plugins already included. :D Woot woot!

This is great. I spent hours trying to figure out the best way to install visual editor on Eclipse 3.3 so I could give my project partners a step-by-step instruction. Now I only need to tell them to go to this site.

Gracias por su colaboración con las personas que estamos investigando sobre la utilidad de nuevos IDE’S me parece muy interesante el desarrollo de easyeclipce sobre todo para personas que están empezando, me gustaría saber si me pueden ayudar con el código fuente de easyeclipce para poder estudiarlo y guiarme en un proyecto que estoy emprendiendo sobre IDE’S para Java, ya que está basado en licencias GPL.
Mi correo es renene_5@hotmail.com, espero por favor una respuesta.
Mil Gracias.
