Eclipse Plugin: Wicked Shell

A lot of Java development involves an IDE and a Shell window or two. The Shell is Command Prompt (cmd.exe) in my case as I develop on Windows. This cool Eclipse plugin reduces one window in my task bar: Wicked Shell. It just puts the OS’s default shell, bash for Linux and cmd.exe for Windows, in Eclipse as a view. You can have multiple shells open. It provides look and feel customizations, command history and code completion…

Pretty cool. Check it out…

    Wicked Shell requires Eclipse 3.2 to work properly. Does it work for 3.3 or 3.4?

  2. It works with Eclipse 3.4
