Eclipse is an awesome tool to use for Java development, one that has made my life a bit easier. Using it with the Java client library is a great way to get started developing with our Google Data APIs.
To make it even easier to get started with Eclipse, I've written a new article whimsically titled "Coding in the Shade" to take you through all the required steps of writing a simple Java program using one of our APIs. Sparing no expense, I've added several pretty pictures as well.
