From my understanding EGit and JGit are totally different (well EGit depends on JGit, but JGit is not related to eclipse), so my questions

-- Is my understanding correct:? Do I need to have Eclipse to use JGit?

-- Is there any documentation of JGit that does not refer to Eclipse or EGit, as I am really not interested in eclipse Git integration but rather using Git repositories in my Java applications (non-Eclipse projects)

your understanding is correct: EGit depends on JGit and JGit is independent from any eclipse/Egit components. You can use only JGit from inside your standard java application. There are already
some java apps which do so (e.g. Gerrit)

For documentation: I would start here: http://wiki.eclipse.org/JGit/User_Guide. A nice place to find code snippets are the tests classes for our API: http:// egit.eclipse.org/w/?p=jgit.git;a=tree;f=org.eclipse.jgit.tes t/tst/org/eclipse/jgit/api;h=bbacdb7dd9d2b3194353f370107ca3f 96bc35a88;hb=refs/heads/master


Ciao
Chris
