Lately there have been many discussions regarding Eclipse preferences because of sites like ihateeclipse.com. The Number 1 complaint on this site is that Eclipse’s resources get out of sync with the file system and, as a result, the user has to press F5. I’ve also run into this more than once icon wink Eclipse Preferences You Need to Know . Anyway, since I’m pretty much an Eclipse power user I have spent some time putting together my personal Eclipse default preferences. With this post I want to share them with you.
