This project aims to deliver an extensible, open platform to support the development of integrated tools for the .NET execution environment. The primary deliverable for the project is the Eclipse.NET tool platform.
Eclipse.NET is a plug-in based application and framework that makes it easier to build, integrate and use software tools within the .NET execution environment. Despite obvious comparisons to an IDE, Eclipse.NET isn't an IDE. The default configuration of the Eclipse.NET platform does include a set of plug-ins that extends the platform with some of the features typically found in an IDE.
It is inspired by the success of the Eclipse project in delivering a similar platform for the Java execution environment. The initial release is based on the Eclipse platform.
