Hi Everett!

I'm a novice in Java, so can't help you with that.
I just want to share my good experience in learning Eclipse.
You don't need any special manual because Eclipse is 99% accessable due 
to its built-in keystroke assignments.
So first bring up Help menu, I believe  the 3rd option in that menu is 
Keyboard Assignments. Get familiar with the list of keystrokes. Then 
you can start reading Eclipse help topics, they are very 
comprehensive.  Almost everything they describe is accessable with 
Let me know if you have any problem.
