You should try it, you'll never utter the word Eclipse again if you do, take my word for it :) The only reason I suggested IntelliJ was that you said in #3 that you didn't know of any tools that could automate the process and also said that Eclipse couldn't do it, so can it do it or not?

Anyway, I agree that the tool doesn't matter as long as it gets the job done, but please don't do yourself the injustice of ruling a tool out just because it costs money. In my opinion, IntelliJ is a *steal* at $499.

By the way, I love your book. I am a long user of final to prevent logic errors. When someone argues with me nowadays about it I direct them to your book, so thanks for that chapter :)

    - I'd like you to give us some clue about how to Set up Eclipse to do this code checking, and publish that as a major article on OnJava.
    I've run into problems attempting to use open source projects( developed with using Eclipse ) with JDeveloper catching errors in the libraries, making them unusable.

    - What version of JBuilder are you denigrating?
    JBuilder X catches more bugs than I care for actually.

    I'm not a big fan of Eclipse.
    Using SWT breaks the Pure Java mantra.
    Is this IBM's smart move to turn Java into a fragmented Unix environment. IBM can then have a Big piece of a much smaller pie.
