Eclipse IDE Book – Finally a paper version and update for Kindle

I finally released the next edition of my Eclipse IDE book. I released two versions for the Kindle already and the last time I promised to deliver an update including handling Git with Eclipse.


I used this opportunity to rework the complete book. It has grown approx. 300 % in size and contains a detailed introduction into using the Eclipse IDE. I also included lots of tips and tricks in using Eclipse as I learned in countless customer workshops that most developer don’t know the little tricks in Eclipse to work efficiently.

Here are some voices about the book:

A great visual introduction to everything Eclipse — from first installation and initial usage through advanced topics such as unit testing and plugin development. The git coverage alone is worth the price of admission.

An excellent jump start for beginners who want to learn how to use Eclipse for Java Development. Packed with pro tips from Lars Vogel who taught countless developers in his online and classroom training how to develop with and for Eclipse.

For many years, I have consulted Lars’ excellent online Eclipse tutorials. Lars always manages to include the information that I’m looking for in a precise way. This book builds upon those tutorials and provide all the information that Eclipse newbies need to get up and going. Seasoned Eclipse users can find a great reference of tips, tricks and how-tos. Now I make sure that I always keep a copy of this excellent book besides me. Highly recommended.

Please note that a Kindle version with a low price is also available and existing Kindle customers will get an update, as I promised to deliver an update including EGit. This will be the last update for the Kindle version, a potential next edition will be released as a new book.

Kindle reader should be able to trigger the update via their Amazon Kindle page, Amazon does NOT automatically distribute updates. The cover of the Kindle version has not yet been updated, Amazon seems to be a bit slow with that.

A really big thanks goes to Holger Vormann, Dirk Fauth, Matthias Sohn for providing intensive feedback on this edition.
