The E4 Resources work is about improving Eclipse Platform Resources, both in terms of APIs and end-user usability.
The Flexible Resource Model is especially about making the concept of a Project more flexible.

The Goals are listed in detail on the Requirements page, in short:

  • enable Eclipse-based products (and especially IDE's) to better adapt to the way how their users are working,
  • support very large workspaces and aliasing (symbolic links) well
  • be competitive with (Visual Studio, Slickedit, Netbeans, IDEA) and other IDE's,
  • integrate with (Maven, Proprietary project systems...) and other project systems where appropriate,
  • enable future programming models (client/server, distributed, web, collaborative),
  • provide simpler and safer programming models enabling more concurrency,
  • building a solid base of Eclipse for the next 10 years.
