Description Advertisement ▼
Eclipse SDK is an open source platform-independent software framework for delivering what the project calls or is known as "rich-client applications" (as opposed to "thin clients", this means the clients perform heavy-duty work on the host.
So far this framework has typically been used to develop IDEs (Integrated Development Environments), such as the highly-regarded Java IDE called Java Development Toolkit (JDT) and compiler that come as part of Eclipse SDK (and which are also used to develop Eclipse itself). However, it can be used for other types of client application as well, see the popular BitTorrent client Azureus for example.
Eclipse SDK was originally developed by IBM, but is now developed by the Eclipse Foundation, an independent not-for-profit consortium of software industry vendors. Many notable software tool vendors have embraced Eclipse as a future framework for their IDEs, among them Borland and IBM Rational.

What's new What's new in version 4.3.0 M6
- Migration Wizard: Building on the changes introduced in M5 to detect changes in shared installs, Eclipse now includes a migration wizard to help users through the re-ininstallation of their plug-ins.
- This wizard is presented in two situations. First, when a read-only installation of Eclipse is being changed (i.e. Eclipse is being updated or plugins are added / remove), second when a new read-only installation of Eclipse is run for the first time.
- BIDI Text Direction: New API has been added to allow text direction to be set independent of the widget orientation. For more info see Snippet 364.
- New SWT color constant for hyperlinks: A new constant (SWT_COLOR_LINK_FOREGROUND) has been added that will return the native color of hyperlinks on all platforms.
- Whole word option on File Search page: The File Search page now allows to search for words via a new option.
