Especially for Eclipse power users (which certainly doesn't include me), it's impossible to stay in the flow, because one is constantly interrupted by some latency, error, or otherwise quirky behavior. For example:
- Short editor freezes
- Transient compile errors
- Code completion comes and goes
- Transient code highlighting problems
- Wrong indentation on copy & paste
- Wrong adding of imports
My impression is that many of these problems result from Groovy Eclipse using outdated information to make its decisions. Often the problems can't be reproduced in a small sample project, and don't go away even if all projects in the workspace are cleaned. Instead, they come and go without apparent reason. But once they hit you, they hit you hard.
All in all, this turns Groovy Eclipse into a rather unpleasant experience. Groovy Eclipse users in our company are complaining all the time. Too bad they don't take the time to report these issues themselves. I've experienced most of these problems myself, but as a casual user I can't provide as much information.
Sorry for the harsh feedback. I really appreciate all your hard work!
