I am talking about real-time changes, Lew. Eclipse keeps track of
modifications to the source code and reacts to them. NB doesn't care
that somebody else is modifying it concurrently.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean.

I do know that if I'm editing a file in NetBeans and someone else modifies it
(which itself represents a breakdown in the process, btw), that NB tells me of
the change and lets me refresh my editor session.

I do not know of this feature of Eclipse of which you speak. In fact, my
experience is the opposite - Eclipse seems not to notice changes on the file
system until I manually refresh my project.

I'm reasonably certain that I've misunderstood you.
