Subject Re: Anyone had an error on Eclipse IDE after upgrade maven-jar-plugin to 3.1.2?
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2019 13:43:00 GMT
Hey StephenC,
I was looking for Anders' answer in Eclipse issue. Important is that the
issue was isolated to and
to Maven.

Issues are everywhere, in every tool, that's the life. Maybe some did not
reach such ratings to fix them nor contributor who could fix them.

In 2010 I worked with Eclipse and Idea but I was missing such code
inspection in Eclipse that Idea had, but Eclipse has many other plugins for
EE and Web, where other tool does not and so therefore there are separately
specialized tools for Web (.., ..., ...), UML - EnterpriseArchitect, etc.
Drawback of those tools is the cost, advantage of Eclipse is free cost,
user conformance is different in each. So I used Idea due to the code
inspection analysis which fits to me and my commercial collagues in
companies (not talking about oss), but other people may have different
feelings. I utilized code inspection as much as possible, but according to
my experiences in commercial companies my collagues did not utilize it so
much which affected their code quality. So everyone can choose, so I tried
3 tools and chose the one. Maybe everybody has tried all tools and has own
preference, that's the life.
I am only glad that I can share the reasoning and exps, that's all.
