Usage Data Collector Usage

Over the past 14 days, 453 (526 in total) of you have consented to upload your usage data to the Eclipse Foundation server. There hasn’t been a lot of change in the top five commands:

  • org.eclipse.ui.file.save 87098
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.goto.wordNext 71274
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.delete 66449
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.paste 57309
  • org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.goto.wordPrevious 51138

Perspective use has some interesting parts, though they occur a little further down the list. It seems that most of us are using Eclipse for Java development:

  • org.eclipse.jdt.ui.JavaPerspective 4592
  • org.eclipse.debug.ui.DebugPerspective 2240
  • org.eclipse.team.ui.TeamSynchronizingPerspective 1155
  • org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.J2EEPerspective 1095
  • org.eclipse.jdt.ui.JavaBrowsingPerspective 111

I find it curious that so many among us use the Java Browsing Perspective. It must be all the Smalltalkers in the crowd…

A few fewer of us are using the PDE:

  • org.eclipse.pde.ui.PDEPerspective 299
  • Use of the CDT and PDT appears to be quite healthy:

    • org.eclipse.cdt.ui.CPerspective 182
    • org.eclipse.php.perspective 87

    Subversive seems popular:

    • org.eclipse.team.svn.ui.repository.RepositoryPerspective 122

    You can view all the results on the EPP Usage Data Collector results page.

  1. Well, that’s because people use the Java perspective to develop plug-ins.

    Is it possible to track if people are using plug-in projects or not?

  2. Jesper S M?ller says:

    Are launch configuration types logged? That might say something about the kinds of projects people are working on?

    As I understand it, the non-org.eclipse plugins are filtered out, so tracking Subversive alone is a bit “unfair” on Subclipse, I think.

  3. Wayne Beaton says:

    Chris, the manifest editor was opened 467 times in the last 14 days (vs. 17129 for the Java editor). We’re not tracking project types (log a bug if you think we should).

    Jesper, Launch configuration types are not logged. It’s probably worth some investigation to see how hard it would be.

    non-eclipse.org plug-ins are *not* filtered out unless the developer explicitly adds a filter, so we probably do have information about Subclipse; however, I am filtering non-eclipse.org content out of my reports for now since we’re concerned about exposing proprietary names. Over time, we’ll develop some more intelligent filters which will allow us to make more comprehensive reports. In the meantime, we *are* capturing the data.
