What is Git?

Git is a distributed SCM/VCS, which means every developer has a full copy of all history of every revision of the code, making queries against the history very fast and versatile. The EGit project is implementing Eclipse tooling on top of a Java implementation of Git.

What is JGit?

JGit is a EDL/BSD licensed, lightweight, pure Java library implementing the Git version control file access routines, network protocols, and core version control algorithms.

See the embrynonic JGitTutorial.
