When using IntelliJ IDEA is not an option…

This is a list of some useful Eclipse plugins that I tend to use when I’m working in a JavaEE environment.

  •  Eclipse Fullscreen :

Allows Eclipse to run on a fullscreen mode toggled by the Ctrl+Z shortcut.

  • Eclipse GrepConsole  :

Applies styles to the Console output (regex based). Come with a defined set of style based on (WARN, INFO, FATAL).

  • Atlassian Connector for Eclipse  :

Gives the possibility to view, edit, manage Jira tickets inside Eclipse.
Requires Mylyn to be installed.

  • Subclipse  :

I tend to prefer Subclipse over Subversive.
