This document provides a starting point for software developer who would like to learn about building products on Eclipse frameworks and APIs.

There are numerous resources about Equinox, the component model that makes Eclipse work.

Ask Questions

Perhaps the best way to learn about Eclipse is to ask questions. If you're not sure about where to ask a question, try the "New Comer" forum. Note that you'll have to create an account to contribute to the forum (you don't need an account to browse).

There is also a very large Eclipse contingent on Stack Overflow; tag your question with "eclipse".
