Hi Jay,
wonderful, I am curious about Eclipse. Few questions about it. Does it
have accessible intellisense like thing? (it really helps in
programming, especially for case-sensitive languages.)
Are We able to develop all types of java programs (including JSPs) with Eclipse?
I will also look at it on the link you provided; thanks
