Eclipse is probably best known as a Java IDE, but it is more: it is an IDE framework, a tools framework, an open source project, a community, an eco-system, and a foundation.

Eclipse b3

The purpose of the b3 project is to develop a new generation of Eclipse technology to simplify software build and assembly.

Eclipse b3 consists of two parts; the b3 engine, and the b3 site aggregator.


The b3 aggregator is available on the b3 update site. The b3 engine is under development and can be obtained from the b3 Git Repository.


b3 aggregator puts Kepler together

The b3 aggregator creates the Kepler update site based on project contributions.


The Eclipse b3 engine is built with Xtext.
