and consist of too many files, because you easily loose overview in eclipse.
I'm using it for a while now and did some simple 2D games (http://langeder.no-ip.org/cms/index.php?p=spaceshooter_2)
Just give it a try

"Built by consultants, for consultants".
Other than when Google forces it down your throat I just can't fathom why anyone choses to use Eclipse. Well unless you are billing hourly.
It is overly complicated, poorly laid out and if you add plugins, fragile as hell.
Obviously its all a matter of opinion, but in my opinion Eclipse sucks, especially for new developers.
EDIT: I suppose I should actually answer the OP question. wicked357 has the right of it. Eclipse is not a programming language, but instead of tool to help you program in other languages, primarily Java, but Eclipse can also be made to (sorta... ) support other languages like C++ and Python.
EDIT2: I see the Eclipse fans are out in force for moderation. Are any of you disputing that fact it's overly complicated, poorly laid out, and breaks easily once you add plugins? Or do you just not like hearing that the Emperor isn't wearing any clothes?
