Ask Questions

Perhaps the best way to learn about Eclipse is to ask questions. If you're not sure about where to ask a question, try the "New Comer" forum. Note that you'll have to create an account to contribute to the forum (you don't need an account to browse).

There is also a very large Eclipse contingent on Stack Overflow; tag your question with "eclipse".
