Can you recommend a book for learning the Eclipse based isCOBOL IDE?
I understand that the isCOBOL IDE is based on Eclipse. I guess is that I had better get up to speed on using Eclipse. What would be a good resource for that? Can you recommend a book?
The most up-to-date documentation, training and tutorials for Eclipse are available on the web at
Check out the resource in the Getting Started section at
The two books which you will probably find the most useful are:
Eclipse IDE Pocket Guide - Aug 12, 2005
Eclipse Distilled - Feb 24, 2005
Another slightly older but useful book is:
Professional Eclipse 3 for Java Developers - Nov 10, 2004
