I swear to God the Eclipse developers are deliberately sabotaging Subclipse to get people to switch to Subversive. It works, too. After twenty-four hours of trying to get a working Eclipse 3.5.1 + Subclipse + EPIC installation on my laptop, I’ve finally given up.
I suspect this also has something to do with Mylyn, but I can’t prove it.
Memo to self: reading the Camel Book and the Wizard Book at the same time is not medically recommended.
(And neither is trying to learn Perl and Scheme at the same time, really. Especially while holding down a day job in Java.)
Still, at least I’m making some progress.
Anyway, that’s only sort of interesting. The interesting bit is that the plurality language on the volunteer development team is Perl. So we’ll be going with LAMP, or possibly BAMP if our BSD fan gets her way.
It’s about ten years since I last wrote a Perl script. Looks like I’m going to have to put Scala and Scheme on hold and hit the books.
