This distro contains the all you need to develop applications reusing the Eclipse architecture: both to develop Eclipse plug-ins, and to develop RCP applications, i.e. applications reusing components from Eclipse. In particular, it contains all the source code for the Eclipse platform and tools, which allows you to easily browse and debug the Eclipse code when accessed from your application.

A useful plugin to add to this is distro is the Eclipse Examples plugin. It is not added by default as it tends to clutter the user interface. However, you should install it soon after you start using this distro.

Note that up to release 1.3.0, this distro was called "Plugin Warrior".

Why do not include EclipseNSIS to deploy stand alone RCP applications?
