Longstanding Eclipse issues - fix them finally, please

Eclipse is the best IDE ever. It's the most stable, most popular, most- a lot of things. The developers that write the Eclipse code have T-shirts that say that - they are that proud. The code-base is said to be awesome - I don't have time to check. But, there are some longstanding issues.

First, SVN client. There's a CVS client that comes with Eclipse. SVN is way more popular. Put the client inside finally. I'm sick of solving numerous JavaHL issues. Fix it. I don't care how, just do it.

Second, Tomcat is the best web container ever and most popular in development. Integrate it better. There are numerous issues with debugging, redeployment and so on. These problems are so old. Fix 'em NOW.

Third, installing plugins is soooo slow. So very slow.

Fourth, web development is not that well integrated. WTP is still buggy, there are issues with configurations, deployment and so on.

Update: Fifth, autocomplete should put jdk classes/interfaces first!!! This is so important. Screenshot:

WTF is antlr.collections?! Are you kidding me?

Now, I'm trying to launch a main method without the "String... args" parameters and Eclipse cannot find it. This is also a longstanding problem.

This works:

public static void main(String... args)

This does not (eclipse cannot find the method):

public static void main()

I'm pretty sure there's a solution, but I'm not going to waste time searching for it.

I've wasted time with compilation, memory, various configurations with xml and whitespace also.

There are always solutions, but this is wasted time. What are the developers working on? Stupid pointless features? Fix these please. Please.

Which stats to trust: Google analytics, Host or WordPress Blog Stats?

I'm using Google Analytics, awstats from cpanel, and a few plugins for wordpress (statpress, wassup). Except Google Analytics they all have unreadable interfaces with a lot of info, that I do not understand.

They all give me different results. I would like to know which one is correct or at least close to the truth. Another problem is Ghostery, which I use - a browser plugin that can block Google Analytics which automatically make its statistics wrong. Recently I was bombarded with requests from Russia and StatPress says Russia is the place where I get most of the requests, which is not right. Until I get an unambiguous answer I'll keep them all running.

What do you think - which gives the best (closest to the truth) stats?


Few days ago I opened The Pirate Bay and was astonished to find it full of ads. Sometime later it happened with another site. Finally, I found the problem. AdBlock was stopped. AdBlock is the plugin that must come preinstalled with every browser. It kills (removes) almost all ads from sites. It's easy to use and to customize (add more sites or ads to the block list).

Georgi said he found something that could accessorize AdBlock even further. Ghostery

sees the invisible web - tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.

Since Firefox for Mac is awful. I'm using Chrome which is quite poor on the plugin front. But this one is available for Chrome and works pretty nice:
