  • Course Eclipse Introduction : Content

    In the course Eclipse Introduction participants learn how to work with the Eclipse development environment. Eclipse is a widely used IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for application development. Eclipse is often used to develop Java applications, but there are also plugins available for developing PHP and C++ applications.

    Eclipse Intro

    The Eclipse Introduction course starts with a discussion of the key elements of the Eclipse IDE, Eclipse as a Tools Framework, and the structure of Eclipse projects.

    Perspectives and Views

    The role of views and perspectives in Eclipse is discussed and participants learn how to configure Eclipse for a range of different tasks, such as using a specific Java SDK or Java version or using a specific application server.

    Eclipse Configuration

    The creation of different types of Eclipse projects will be discussed and participants will also learn how to navigate the multitude of settings and configuration options in Eclipse. Attention is also paid to debugging applications in the Eclipse Debug perspective.

    Eclipse Plugins

    Furthermore the extension of Eclipse through the installation of Eclipse Plugins is discussed. The Eclipse Introduction course also covers how to make Eclipse Plugins yourself, what architecture Eclipse Plugins have and what the role of OSGI is.

    JUnit Testing

    Finally the integration with JUnit and the creation of JUnit tests are discussed.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.

It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
