Most used bundles

A lot more of you are participating with the Usage Data Collector (UDC). We’ve tried to make it very robust, and as low impact on your experience with Eclipse as possible. That said, it’s hard to get things exactly right, so please report a bug if you run into problems.

By far the most active bundle is org.eclipse.ui.workbench. This should be a surprise to no-one. It seems that most current participants are building (org.eclipse.jdt.ui) and debugging (org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui) Java applications using the JDT. The Web Tools XML editor (org.eclipse.wst.xml.ui) and PDE (org.eclipse.pde.ui) are getting used relatively heavily, followed closely by Mylyn (org.eclipse.mylyn.tasks.ui), and the Web Tools HTML editor (org.eclipse.wst.html.ui).

Activations of views and editors, invocations of commands, and switching of perspectives, all record the bundle that defines them. This is what I’m querying, so it’s no surprise that UI bundles far surpass the others in terms of use which is why bundles from projects like EMF (org.eclipse.emf.ecore)—which is still rather heavily used—will always appear relatively low on this query.

With the flurry of recent participation, the top five commands used over the last 14 days has changed:

  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.contentAssist.proposals
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.delete
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.paste
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.goto.lineEnd

Content assist proposals is making its move!

    Hi Wayne,

    I just want to know how to set up UDC. Is it default provided and installed with Eclipse 3.4M5 or should i install something myself ?


  2. For completeness reasons: Yes, the UDC is included in all nightly 3.4M5 package builds ( and in some of the 3.4M4 package builds ( And of course, there is Wayne’s how-to-install
