Call for screenshots

I have mentioned earlier that the Eclipse WTP project is taking steps on improving the default layout of the Java EE perspective. We made an UI walkthrough in the Eclipse UI Best Practices group and reached consensus for some small, but valuable, things to improve. We have scheduled this small step for Galileo M3.

Before we continue the discussions on the topic, we would like to look inside the development environment of WTP users. We have some statistics from the Usage Data Collector, but it is invaluable to see how Java EE developers compose the different views in an effective and convenient perspective. We are sure that everybody has its own favourite layout depending on the screen resolution and the working style.

We will be happy if you take some minutes to submit a screenshot of your IDE on the designated wiki page.
