Eclipse is an awesome IDE, but setting up your application's dependencies to run locally... sucks. The "browser-based" Eclipse makes it easy to develop in the cloud, but only if you forgo the rich features of your desktop IDE. Why can't we have the best of both worlds? Turns out, we can! This talk investigates the principles of the CDT/PTP (what works well and what works not-so-well), and applies the lessons learned to create a cloud-capable build of eclipse which we use for editing general Java & Web Applications.
