No, I don't think eclim (which means eclipse) uses some kind of tags
database.  The JDT (Java Development Tools) come with their own
incremental compiler, and using eclim an editor (vim only, currently)
just ask it what the possible completions are at a given offset in a
file (completion is only one feature, basically it can use each and
every eclipse feature).  See

for details.

Thousands  of years  ago Chuck  Norris  came across  a bear.  It was  so
terrified that it  fled north into the arctic. It  was also so terrified
that all of its decendents now have white hair.
