Sure, not sure if you mean on the problem side or the RHEL SDK side.
If you've used Eclipse, the problem should be pretty clear. There is an
update manager, but it's slow and half the time it crashes if you've got
a bunch of plugins (and we do). It's usually faster to download an
entire new Eclipse bundle than use the updater.
Okay, that's an upstream problem that's being addressed in 3.4.
The RHEL4 SDK has most of what we normally use, which is
Eclipse + WTP / Tomcat 5.5 (for J2EE) + Subclipse. It installs with
up2date or yum and works. It's the same trade-off as usual for RHEL,
it's not the latest features but it's stable. Users can install Europa in
their home directory if desired.
What's the "RHEL4 SDK" you speak of? RHDS? I didn't think JPackage
provided any Eclipse packages other than ecj anymore.
