SWT vs. Swing (Eclipse vs. NetBeans)

Posted by admin on November 27th, 2007

This was going to be a whole post about the advantages and disadvantages of both (or the four), but luckily someone already summed it up and included a whole bunch of valuable sources in his post. However, most of them are more than one year old, which is why I’d like to have your comments and of course your vote below. What do you use to develop your GUIs?

Posted by admin on November 19th, 2007

It’s accomplished! As of now I can officially call myself “M.Sc. in Applied Computer Science” with a key qualification in media and communications. Thanks again to everyone, who gave me their support over the last 6 month (thesis). I won’t forget!

Remotely Debugging PHP with Eclipse

Posted by admin on November 14th, 2007

Since I may have to do some PHP programming in the near future, I have been looking for a nice IDE over the last week. For syntax highlighting and simple editing, Notepad++ has been doing the job so far, but I’m getting sick and tired of having to use the print() command to output variables I need to check. Thus, code debugging was one of the mandatory features I was aiming for in my conquest for an IDE. As of yet, I have been using Eclipse for my Java programming, being very satisfied with its feature list as well as its GUI and the fact that it’s supported by a huge community. Furthermore, it’s open-source (therefore freely available) and easily extensible through hundrets of plugins, available via the Eclipse-internal software update mechanism.
