Ranchers, I have been developing servlets/jsp's/POJO's on unix env for the last 2-3 years on unix env. Being a unix freak, I use all kinds of graphical tools based on the vi editor. Starting Jan05, we wanted to standardize the dev env on an IDE and decided on Eclipse(on solaris) and trying to set things up. The build has been setup already. Can someone help me in suggesting some good beginner books on eclipse which could be a good read for our team and will put us on the top of this IDE tool quickly.
I've set up our team on Eclipse (though I'm now moving away from it myself, back to my beloved JBuilder at last). Without books or whatever they were up to speed quickly. Not sure what of the more advanced features they use (they're more used to simple text editors, so anything is an improvement ) though.
I've read Eclipse in Action and it was pretty good, although I didn't find it enlightening. I agree with Jeroen that you just need to practice using it.
But Jeroen... JBuilder I just don't understand how somebody could willing go from eclipse to Jbuilder.

Steven, I went from JBuilder to Eclipse only because I couldn't at the time afford to upgrade JBuilder and I needed a JSP editor.
I've ever since missed JBuilder and been thinking of going back. The superior performance, better project management system, more intuitive user interface. I admit that's in part personal preference and long experience with Borland products (I first used Borland products in the 1980s, purchased my first versions of Delphi and BC++ around 1995).
I'm still hitting the wrong keys in Eclipse, trying to use Borland shortcuts instead of IBM ones.

Just for a JSP editor?
Jeroen, there are so many cool JSP editors for Eclipse out there, as you might alrady have known... To list a few: MyEclipse, Lomboz and so and so...
I am in reverting process with you... I have been using JBuilder for a long long time, since I was in the second year of my BSCS... Now I have to move to Eclipse, since the company I moved to can't afford JBuilder and they are sticking to open-source tools basically... Thats why....
Well, as for me, I used Eclipse Live from SourceBeat, which is really good and easy to understand for newbies like me, four months ago... But I have no idea about Eclipse in Action from Manning...
Just my 2 cents...
