Eclipse is a free development software that enables you to create Java applications from scratch with ease. This app, originally developed by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) and currently maintained by the Eclipse Foundation, is an integrated development environment (IDE) that is a popular choice among developers for working with Java and other programming languages.
Eclipse, like NetBeans and IntelliJ IDEA, allows users to develop other programming languages using third-party plugins. Moreover, it lets you create documents. Not only that, but numerous utilities integrate this program with others, which opens up more possibilities in software development.
