I don't think you have to learn Java, at least not if you just want to use
for Haskell development. Eclipse is a sort of neutral platform, on which
be built. The Java IDE is only the most famous (and most advanced) of them
but the Haskell support is independent of it. In fact, you can even have an
installation with Haskell support and without Java support.
On the other hand, Eclipse has some sort of its own style, and therefore
people who originally come from the Java world are already used to it (and
it). It surely helps if one has already worked with the Java IDE, because
things in EclipseFP are similarly built.
It would surely be great if you would try out Pugs development with
Please let us know your experiences :-)
Hope this helps
