Eclipse Integrated Development Environment
The Eclipse Platform is an open and extensible platform for anything and yet nothing in particular. It provides a foundation for constructing and running integrated software-development tools. The Eclipse Platform allows tool builders to independently develop tools that integrate with other people's tools so seamlessly you can't tell where one tool ends and another starts.
This package provides only the Eclipse Platform. It does not include any development plug-ins. These are available in different packages:
- eclipse-jdt Java Development Tools
- eclipse-pde Plug-in Development Tools
- eclipse Complete development environment This package is the base for all eclipse plug-ins. Please note that many plugins will fail to install if you don't have the eclipse-pde package installed.
