Hi, for a complex tool as Eclipse IDE which contains numerous of components, its architecture should be very complicated. I'm researching about architecture patterns that applied when architecting the Eclipse IDE, does anyone know any architecture pattern that applied to Eclipse IDE?
Thank you very much.

Eclipse is a very complex tool since it is composed of a platform on top of which you can find several projects. The platform is based on Equinox, an implementation of the OSGi specification and the core projects of Eclipse. On top of the platform itself, you can find dozens of projects with their own architecture based on OSGi starting with the projects providing the workspace, the workbench, etc.

After that, you have all the tools with their specific architecture and you would have to ask the developers of each of those tools to have more specific answers.
