I used to code with emacs, without code completion or debugging or 
whatever, and I managed fine - now I code in Eclipse and I have all the 
whizz bang plug-ins like maven and cvs and xmlspy and I've got the 
Problems List which highlights the code causing errors, plus I can 
refactor, BUT.... I waste so much time, hours and hours when it goes wrong.

Sometimes it will never stop and I am doomed to have these time-wasting 
issues with Eclipse plug-ins not working together, or just not 
installing, or Java 5 bugs or whatever. Progress I guess.

I'd like to know whether these kinds of issues affect IDEA users. When 
was the last time you spent a whole morning trying to get tomcat to run 
inside Eclipse, or an hour a day for a week fighting to get Maven menus 
to appear?

This must be the bleeding edge, right?


PS what does myeclipse do?

struts 1.2 + tomcat 5.0.19 + java 1.5.0
Linux 2.4.20 Debian
