I discovered that this is part of Eclipse Plugin Development Environment (PDE), but a quick explanation would help to understand what this means.

API Tools is the part of PDE that verifies that you have maintained your API contract as compared to your previous releases. e.g. it will give you an error to tell you to increment the minor version if you introduce a new method in a public API class. If you remove a method it will tell you to increment the major version number.

There is more info on  - in particular for what breaks and is compatible API.
