Recent Eclipse problems force me to try other IDEs and diferent Eclipse versions and distributions.
So I finally took the time to create a list of our favourite Eclipse Plugins resp. their Update Sites:
|Name, Feature/Purpose||Update Site URLs||Further reading, Remarks|
|ADT, integrates Android Developer Tools and plafform sources|
Requires Android SDK, too.
|CDT, C/C++ Developement Tools.||Stable CDT is available within standard repositories.|
Milestone and bleeding edge links are from the CDT Downloads page.
|CUTE Plugin, C++ Unit Testing Easier||See on project Homepage: CUTE Installation and System Requirements|
|GWT Eclipse Plugin||Adjust site URL to Eclipse version. GWT seems dead, though.|
|JD, Java Decompiler Plugin||Afterwards ensure "Class File Editor" is activated for "*.class without source".|
|M2E, Maven integration||Maven integration|
|Maven Integration for Android Development||Has some quirks with library projects. Got rather unusable, drove me towards Android Studio.|
