Just to clarify, MyEclipseIDE does indeed consist of Open Source projects.
I'm not sure how much custom code the company adds, but it's built a
pretty good model around providing commonly available open source Eclipse
plugins in an easily installable way and backing them up with support. It
includes, among others, the XMen XML editor, the EASY struts wizard, the
JBoss IDE XDoclet, the BEJY JSP Editor, and the SQL Explorer
You can download each of these for free, but if you want a guarantee that
they'll work (noted, *most* of the time), you can pay the $30 yearly
Not a bad deal, for the features you get.
