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.
