Edit, Compile, & Debug 45 million lines of Unix C++ code from any box using Eclipse.


PayPal’s huge C++ code base relies on a specific Unix version in order to compile and run, so compiling and running PayPal’s C++ code base on a Windows box is not an option. Running Eclipse on the Unix box with a terminal emulator is a quick solution for local developers, but for developers from different states or countries, the latency factor would make it unusable. PayPal developed its own custom Eclipse plugins which would allow users to overcome the latency issue and to have a full local Eclipse experience, which includes edit, compile, and debugging, from any box.
