The modern software development process becomes more and more distributed characted. Now, a usual project is not a one-men work more, but a collective work of bunch of people communicating through network. Therefore, it's very important that each involved developer stands to the rules and guidelines applied for the project.
There are many tools that makes the development process easy. One of these tools that increases in popularity more and more is Eclipse. The number of companies, organizations or project teams using Eclipse grows permanently. Typically, in such a company a developer takes itself care of downloading and configuring Eclipse and all kinds of Plugins.
Therefore, the more developers using Eclipse within of organization the more different versions, configurations and settings do exist. When a group of developers is working for a project and sharing the project's resources (and this is the typical case) using of different tools and versions may lead to any kinds of conflicts (unfortunately this is the typical case too).
The Custom Eclipse Builder is a very easy way to solve all these problems. After you have installed and configured Builder you can build your own Eclipse distribution each time you wish (e.g. by scheduling a cron job) in just a few minutes. The Builder will download all desired Eclipse- and plugins distributions full automatically.
There is no need to check a new plugin's version you wish to include in the distribution is realised. The Custom Eclipse Builder takes care of plugin's version management. Once installed and configured you can use Builder over a couple of months without any modifications.
