The Platform defines the set of frameworks and common services that collectively make up 'integration-ware' required to support the use of Eclipse as a component model, as a rich client platform (RCP) and as a comprehensive tool integration platform. These services and frameworks include the base runtime and OSGi framework implementation, a standard workbench user interface model and portable native widget toolkit, a project model for managing resources, automatic resource delta management for incremental compilers and builders, language-independent debug infrastructure, and infrastructure for distributed multi-user versioned resource management.

PDE stands for Plug-in development environment. 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.

JDT stands for Java development tools. 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. Eclipse JDT home is here. 2747 4440
