Eclipse isn't an online app. You could disconnect your internet connection and still compile and develop applications using local code......


May help

Eclipse is a full function IDE for a number of languages including but not limited to C, C++, java and python.

There is an online version "orion" aimed at cloud based computing and also a version to be installed on your local machine

Open a terminal by pressing CTRL, ALT and T together and enter the following

sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo; apt-get install eclipse-cdt

You should now have C and C++. this may also include java, not sure, If not let us know and we can tell you how to add java.

Thanks to both of you for reply..

These plugins are only suitable for desktop version eclipse. I mean its only suitable for eclipse juno or indigo, etc.,

But its not spplicable to eclipse orion, which is online IDE, which can be accessible through the browser.

I'm using eclipse orion, so, please suggest me the any available plugin for orion to support java, c , python or any other language..

Is it possible to make the Orion to support many programming languages.. please tell me what should i do now..

Thanks & regards,

Not an expert here I have no experience of Orion. However, from the website
It appears to be aimed purely at web development so I doubt you can compile C etc. with it. The point of being web based is that its platform independent and compiled languages are not. It would need to know what hardware to compile for.

I use the desktop version of eclipse which works well for Java, C and C++. There are plug-ins for other languages too but I have no personal experience. There is no problem to have both the desktop version and the online version of eclipse.

The only other online compiler I am aware of is here http://ideone.com/
