Vim like editing for eclipse

I am using eclipse at work for development, and although eclipse provides many excellent functionalities, being a vi/vim person myself, I was missing the elegance of developing using a vim style editor. One of the senior engineers at work, being himself an avid vi/vim user as myself, pointed out an eclipse plugin for vim called vrapper. It is not complete vim, but has enough functionality to keep me happy. I have been using it for about a week now, and I am liking the eclipse functionality with a vim style editor.

You can install it from eclipse marketplace. If you are using one of the relatively newer eclipse IDEs, you should see a link from "help".
