Interested in helping a research study on Eclipse?

Mohsen Vakilian
Hi Martin,

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.
