Results of an Evans Data survey show that over the last year, use of the Eclipse IDE as a primary development environment grew 90 percent in North America, 70 percent in the Asia Pacific region and 60 percent in EMEA. Overall, on average the use of Eclipse grew more than 75 percent across the three regions.
