What version of Eclipse should I install in my Linux Mint 16 MATE environment?

Hi:

I'm a Newbie to the world of Linux/Eclipse/Java.

I've just built a VM using Linux Mint 16 Mate.
We're building a web application using mysql, java and the spring framework
on the backend. On the front end we're using HTML5/jquery.

There are several flavors of Eclipse out there.
I'd like to have an integrated environment where I can program
and debug the application through the IDE.
(Think Microsoft Visual Studio environment like - I know, I know...)

What version of Eclipse is most suited for this?

Thanks,
JohnB

We use the Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) of Eclipse, with Windows 7, but I would think that it would still be a good choice for Linux too.  In my humble opinion, each choice brings only subtle differences.

While I agree with TheLearnedOne about there not being much difference between the different versions, since you mentioned Spring I would suggest looking at Spring Tool Suite. It has a couple of extra conveniences that can make working with Spring projects a little bit easier.

I would also suggest spring tool suite especially if the linux is 64 bit, it seems the eclipse has issues on 64 bit linux, it does crash at times.

Hi Folks:

Thanks for the feedback.
I've gone ahead and installed both.
I'll see which one ends up working best for me.
