Eclipse Project

Revision as of 06:22, 10 June 2011 by (Talk | contribs) (Topic hubs)

The unfortunately named "Eclipse Project" is the project dedicated to producing the Eclipse SDK. This name made sense back when there were only two or three projects at Eclipse, but now it is frequently referred to as the "Eclipse top-level project" to reduce confusion (or just "The Platform" when we're feeling grandiose). This project in turn is composed of four sub-projects: Platform, Java development tools (JDT), Plug-in Development Environment (PDE), and Eclipse/Incubator. Until the Ganymede release, the Eclipse project also contained the Equinox subproject, but this project has since moved to the RT top level project. There is a proposed fifth sub-project, code-named e4, exploring technologies for the next generation of the Eclipse platform. The Eclipse project is led by a PMC, and an architecture team made up of leads from each of the sub-project components.
