recently , iv started using both Visual Studio 2010 (to learn C#) and i came across eclipse WindowsBuilder ( and i'm loving it.. ).
so i was wondering how do these two compare against each other ... strengths and weaknesses ?
iv only begun using VS , but i do like how easily (with a mouse clicks) it makes the connection between the database and the code, i suppose that would be an advantage over java?

ps: posted this thread here for i wasnt sure in whether to post this in the java or the C# forums.

I use Visual Studio at my day job; it's a decent IDE (though there are a few things I'd have had it handle differently, especially around autogenerated code). Haven't used Eclipse for .NET development, so I can't comment on that. You may also want to look at SharpDevelop; I use it for my .NET projects at home.
