Eclipse is a kind of universal tool platform - an open extensible IDE for anything and nothing in particular. The real value of Eclipse comes from tool plug-ins that "teach" Eclipse how to work with things - java files, web content, graphics, video, etc. Eclipse allows you to independently develop tools that integrate with other people's tools seamlessly.
The Platform defines the set of frameworks and common services that collectively make up "integration-ware" required to support the use of Eclipse as a component model, as a rich client platform (RCP) and as a comprehensive tool integration platform. These services and frameworks include a standard workbench user interface model and portable native widget toolkit, a project model for managing resources, automatic resource delta management for incremental compilers and builders, language-independent debug infrastructure, and infrastructure for distributed multi-user versioned resource management.
