I'm not the author, but from looking at the book online it doesn't look like you would need to learn AspectJ. It looks like a pretty comprehensive guide to using and expanding eclipse. There appears to be some coverage of Aspect Oriented Programming, but if that doesn't interest you I would imagine you could skip it.

No, you will not have to learn AspectJ. In fact, the chapter on AOP was cut at the last minute to meet the ever-present deadline.

AspectJ is the compiler/tools that are specific to Java that give it support for Aspect-oriented programming. There are a number of ways to get AOP behavior from objects, but the first is through the actual manipulation of the byte code. AspectJ directly manipulates the byte code to add AOP support to Java. It is an official Eclipse project and can be downloaded as a separate plug-in from http://www.eclipse.org/aspectj/.

There are a number of very good books on AOP. I would say start with the one by Ramnivas Laddad (AspectJ In Action). It is a wonderful book.

I have a deadline to meet (by Feb 21), and personally I cannot use dr.Java. My profs encourage us to use dr.Java but it's NOWHERE near as good as Eclipse. I know how to use the 'basic' functions that get my by to running my code, but I'm missing out about 90% ++ of the usage!

It just looks a bit confusing when you try to go ahead and 'get complex' with eclipse. Since I travel a lot, on the train I sit down, read my books with my laptop and that's pretty much the best time for me to learn eclipse IDE, but never really gotten the chance. I love eclipse! It's the best thing since sliced..bread...yes.. lol

One thing I found that is very handy is a list of eclipse shortcuts.

http://eclipse-tools.sourceforge.net/shortcuts.html

A great place to start playing around.

Hi Tony,
If you are pretty familiar with any other IDE like Dr.Java or sthing, it will not take that long for you get familiar with Eclipse... The learning curve is not that high as you think...

I came from JBuilder background and I could catch up most of the Eclipse stuff within two weeks... So-called two weeks is that I just have only 1 hours to read about the Eclipse at home. So it might be 14 hours totally to catch up Eclipse things...

So don't give up and go ahead with this cool IDE, Eclipse...
