Interested in helping a research study on Eclipse?
Thanks for your interest in CodingSpectator.
There are several IDE's for Java. And, we've focused on the one we are
most familiar with, i.e. Eclipse. It's a lot of work to support
NetBeans or IntelliJ. So, we do not have any plans for supporting
other IDEs. Fortunately, Eclipse has a lot of users. And, we hope to
be able to get help from Eclipse users.
