This section provides introductory information for understanding the user interface.
The Eclipse SDK provides an open framework to enhance functionality to the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). These features (or plug-ins) are easily versioned and dynamically installed or updated without restarting the IDE. Software developers using Eclipse have often wished for a similar model for their desktop applications. With previous versions of Eclipse, this was possible but difficult, especially when heavily customizing menus, layouts, and other user interface elements.
The UI toolkits described in this section are used by the Eclipse IDE and plug-ins, and work equally well for RCP applications.
