<td>The Eclipse Project is an open source project of eclipse.org, overseen
by a <a href="team-leaders.html">Project Management Committee</a> (PMC)
and project leaders. The work is done in subprojects working against a <a href="http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/">CVS
repository</a>. The <a href="eclipse-charter.html">Eclipse Project Charter</a>
describes the organization of the project, roles and responsibilities of
the participants, and top level development process for the project. The
JDT and PDE are plug-in tools for the Eclipse Platform. Together, these
three pieces form the Eclipse SDK <a href="../downloads/index.html" target="_top">download</a>,
a complete development environment for Eclipse-based tools, and for developing
Eclipse itself.</td>

(Draft for Review)<br>
This document lays out the plan for the next major release of the Eclipse
Project, designated release 2.0. The main emphasis of the Eclipse 2.0 release
will be on improving quality (bug fixing) and performance, with a lesser
emphasis on adding new features and APIs.<i> Please send comments about
this draft plan to the </i><a href="mailto:eclipse-dev@eclipse.org">eclipse-dev@eclipse.org</a>

The Platform defines the set of frameworks and common services that collectively
make up &quot;integration-ware&quot; required to support a comprehensive
tool integration platform. These services and frameworks represent the common
facilities required by most tool builders including a standard workbench
user interface and project model for managing resources, portable native
widget and user interface libraries, automatic resource delta management
for incremental compilers and builders, language-independent debug infrastructure,
and infrastructure for distributed multi-user versioned resource management.

<td><b><a target="_top" href="../jdt/index.html">JDT - Java development tools</a></b><br>
The JDT provides the tool plug-ins for the platform that implement a Java
IDE for power-users, that supports the development of any Java application,
including Eclipse plug-ins. The JDT adds the notion of Java projects and
a Java perspective to the Eclipse platform, as well as a number of views,
editors, wizards, builders, and code merging and refactoring tools. The
JDT allows Eclipse to be a development environment for itself. The JDT plug-ins
themselves can also be further extended by other tool builders.</td>

<td><b><a target="_top" href="../pde/index.html">PDE - Plug-in development
environment</a></b><br>
The PDE project provides a number of views and editors that make is easier
to build plug-ins for Eclipse. Using the PDE, you can create your plug-in
manifest file (plugin.xml), specify your plug-in runtime and other required
plug-ins, define extension points, including their specific markup, associate
XML Schema files with the extension point markup so extensions can be validated,
create extensions on other plug-in extension points, etc. The PDE makes
integrating plug-ins easy and fun.<br>
