What code completion it provide we don't?
It provides ng-* completion which we do too. And IMO ours is better 
since we provide context-dependent code completion.
For example we suggest count/when/... attributes only for ng-pluralize 
directives (<ANY ng-pluralize> or <ng-pluralize>)
Or ng-maxlength only for input directives. Or we don't suggest ng-app if 
it's already defined in any parent tag. Etc. So we analyze the context 
when calculating what can be suggested in the particular place.

angularjs-eclipse seems to suggest a fixed list (very limited) of most 
used ng-* directives for html tags.

It does not provide code completion for {{}} expressions which we plan 
to do in JBT 4.2.
The upstream project 
https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/wiki/Tern-Eclipse-IDE is 
supposed to provide some angular specific code completion in *.js files 
but I couldn't manage to make it work.

The good thing in that tools we don't have in JBT is ng-* and {{}}
