I’m just started to learn programming and I will learn Java so I can’t help with this low level stuff. I think we need to port swt.jar first, the rest will be easy. Unlike other software wanted to be more cross platform, Eclipse itself now seemed to only focus on Windows and Linux (64 bit only). They no longer package a swt version for Solaris anymore. The Eclipse on FreeBSD/DFBSD port is just an unofficial version. Other BSDs stuck with ancient Eclipse version (3.x). The Illumos based OSes don’t have anything at all. So it’s strange when I asked you to port such software to Haiku. I know it, but Eclipse is, IMHO, just easier to use and learn than Netbeans. I know we can already run the latest version of Netbeans on Haiku but I admit I have never liked Netbeans and many people agreed with me about that. Porting Eclipse to Haiku will attract more Java developers to Haiku. Eclipse also has CDT to develop C/C++, too. It will be another choice for IDE on Haiku.
What do you think about it?
