We're happy to announce that CodingSpectator now supports Eclipse Indigo (3.7) --
the latest version of Eclipse.

We are looking for more participants. Your participation in our study will help to keep
the Eclipse platform innovative. If you couldn't participate in the study because you
had to use Indigo, you can now install CodingSpectator.

If you are interested, please sign up at
<http://codingspectator.cs.illinois.edu/ConsentForm> to participate in our study.

We are thankful to those of you who have already participated in our study.

I'm Mohsen, a PhD student working with Prof. Ralph Johnson at the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Ralph is a co-author of the seminal book on
design patterns (GoF) and his research group has a history of important contributions
to IDE's.
Our team [1] is studying how developers interact with the Eclipse IDE for evolving
and maintaining their code. Since Hadoop comes with some Eclipse support [2], I
assume that Eclipse has some users in the Hadoop community. Thus, we are
extending this invitation to Hadoop developers and would greatly appreciate and value
your participation and help in our research study.
To participate you should be at least 18 years old and use Eclipse Helios for Java
development. As a participant, we ask that you complete a short survey and install
our Eclipse plug-in called CodingSpectator [3].
CodingSpectator monitors programming interactions non-intrusively in the
background and periodically uploads it to a secure server at UIUC. To get a
representative perspective of how you interact with Eclipse, we would appreciate if
you could install CodingSpectator for two months. Rest assured that we are taking
the utmost measures to protect your privacy and confidentiality.
If you are interested, you may sign up at
<http://codingspectator.cs.illinois.edu/ConsentForm>, which contains our consent
form with all the details and procedures of our research study.
Your participation will help us greatly as we try to better understand how developers
interact with their IDE's so we can propose improvements which fit better with their
Thanks in advance for your time! Please do not hesitate to contact me
(mvakili2@illinois.edu) if you have any questions or comments. More information can
also be found at our FAQ [4]. Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who might
be interested in participating in this study.
