Hi all,

I am new here and looking for some guidance...
We are on a mission of developing an IDE. This IDE would be used to develop in a certain industrial standard. The resulting "code" is then deployed to and executed by some sort of hardware.
We are using MS technologies for our development but seeking to learn from successfull developments.
As eclipse is a very "comunity driven" app, we thought it would be a good place to look. Only that it is so big and after a few houres here I do not know where to start.
Is there some sort of documentation of the overall architecture of the IDE? If so, where can I find it. If not, is there someone I can talk to?
Heck, I am not even sure this is the right forum... Embarrassed

Thanks,

Asher

Hi Asher,

you are right - this is not the right forum for beginner questions. I
guess this is what eclipse.newcomer is meant to be.
However, if you want to create an IDE, I'd recommend to dive into the
Xtext framework http://www.eclipse.org/Xtext or www.xtext.org . It
allows to create an IDE for a language, though it is based on Eclipse.
However, the target platform for Xtext driven languages does not depend
on Java or Eclipse itself.

Hope that helps,
Sebastian

I think the answer depends on what will you be working with. Eclipse as a flexible IDE works fine for PHP, Python, BIRT, and even some non-free integrated tools such as Adobe Flash Builder (for Flex for example).

This is a very good IDE, hope this examples help.

Eclipse itself, however, is a universal tool platform. The JDT is really an addition to Eclipse--it's a plugin,infact. Eclipse itself is really the Eclipse platform, which provides support for tools beyond just theJava set you get on download. These tools are implemented as plugins, so the platform itself only needs to be a relatively small software package.
