By browsing through the MyEclipse website, I found out that MyEclipse is actually a plugin for Eclipse IDE, is that right? Or it can act as a standalone IDE?
May I know how can I benefit from using MyEclipse as a Java learner? I consider myself a beginner since I have long forgotten the language since I graduated from college and have not been using it ever since I start working.
What's the benefits of using subscription based MyEclipse service? What kind of support would I get?
Does MyEclipse come with built-in tutorial (text/flash/html/video) and hands-on examples?
I would love to see a better options offered by MyEclipse over Eclipse
May I know whether MyEclipse provides tools for testing and project planning/management? As well as catering for deployment needs?

Thanks for the post. I'll address your questions individually...
Testing and Project management, no. You would need to look at a project like TPTP for testing and I'm not sure of a good one for project management though.
For deployment, yes MyEclipse will handle J2EE/Java EE deployment packaging and handling for you, even with things like dependent projects and so on.
I hope I addressed your questions.
From your reply, I can tell that, the features of MyEclipse would be quite powerful which sit on top of Eclipse and value-add to the existing feature, or perhaps I could say it boost the powerfulness and functionality of Eclipse to achieve tip-top performance.
By the way, does MyEclipse plan to move on to include more features like the project management tool in the near future or some time later? Would love to see MyEclipse to be on of the most feature rich and ultra IDE
