Eclipse

Eclipse (SDK)

Eclipse Software Development Kit (SDK) is a Java based open-source integrated development environment (IDE) which combines a number of different Eclipse projects including Platform, Java Development Tools (JDT) and the Plug-in Development Environment (PDE).

Eclipse can be used to create a large array of software applications using languages ranging from PHP, C++ programs, to Java. It is one of the most popular development tools in both the open-source and commercial worlds.

It provides Java editing with validation, incremental compilation, cross-referencing, code assist; an XML Editor; Mylyn; and much more.

Eclipse is released under the Eclipse Foundation, a commercially friendly license that allows organizations to include Eclipse software in their commercial products, while at the same time asking those who create derivative works of EPL code to contribute back to the community.

Eclipse Platform

The Eclipse Platform provides the core frameworks and services upon which all plug-in extensions are created. It also provides the runtime in which plug-ins are loaded, integrated, and executed. The primary purpose of the Platform is to enable other tool developers to easily build and deliver integrated tools.

Features include:

  • Supports the construction of a variety of tools for application development
  • Supports an unrestricted set of tool providers, including independent software vendors (ISVs)
  • Supports tools to manipulate arbitrary content types (e.g., HTML, Java, C, JSP, EJB, XML, and GIF)
  • Facilitates seamless integration of tools within and across different content types and tool providers
  • Supports both GUI and non-GUI-based application development environments

Java Development Tools (JDT)

The JDT project provides the tool plug-ins that implement a Java IDE supporting the development of any Java application, including Eclipse plug-ins. It adds a Java project nature and Java perspective to the Eclipse Workbench as well as a number of views, editors, wizards, builders, and code merging and refactoring tools. The JDT project allows Eclipse to be a development environment for itself.

Features include:

  • Java projects with source files arranged in package directories
  • Editing with keyword and syntax coloring, outline shhowing declaration structure
  • Code formatter
  • Refactoring
  • Search
  • Compare
  • Compile - JCK-compliant Java compiler
  • Run Java programs in a separate target Java virtual machine
  • Debug programs with JPDA-compliant Java virtual machine

Plug-in Development Environment (PDE)

PDE provides tools to create, develop, test, debug, build and deploy Eclipse plug-ins, fragments, features, update sites and RCP products.
