Plug-ins for Eclipse

Eclipse is my favorite Java IDE (Integrated Development Environment). One of the best functionality offered by Eclipse, is the possibility of adding (free) third-party plug-ins, which makes Eclipse flexible, and customizable to satisfy your requirements. Here is a list of plug-ins I installed in Eclipse:

Integrate SVN in Eclipse with this tool. This tool makes it effortless to keep your project files in sync with your SVN repository.

If you PHP for development, then this tool is useful. It provides stuff like: syntax high-lighting, code-completion, and integrated manual.

If you use JavaScript, you can use this tool to make the coding experience better. It provides similar functionality like PHPEclipse, but for JavaScript instead of PHP.

This plug-in forces you to write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. Checkstyle also checks class design problems, duplicate code, and bugs.

This tool, well, finds bugs in your Java code. It uses static analysis on Java bytecode to detect bug patterns.

This is definitely my favorite tool to draw UML diagrams. Very easy to use, and it's free!
