Tycho is focused on a Maven-centric, manifest-first approach to building Eclipse plug-ins, features, update sites, RCP applications and OSGi bundles.

Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment (EASE)

EASE allows the execution of script code (using scripting languages such as JS, Python, ...) within the context of the Eclipse Platform/RCP. As they are running in the same JRE as Eclipse itself, these scripts have direct access to any class of your application and may interact with your workbench.

Lua Development Tools (LDT)

Lua Development Tools (LDT) is about providing Lua developers with an IDE providing the user experience developers expect from any other tool dedicated to a static programming language.

Like many other dynamic languages, Lua is so flexible that it is hard to analyze enough to provide relevant and powerful tooling.
LDT is using Metalua, to analyze Lua source code and provide nice user assistance.


Handly provides basic building blocks that help developers create handle-based models similar in design principles to the JDT Java model. The uniform API makes it possible to develop common IDE components dealing with such models. Integration with Xtext is provided.

Eclipse UML Generators

UML Generators Project provides components that automatically bridge the gap between UML models and source code. Either by extracting data from UML models (and UML profiles or decoration models) to produce source code or  by reverse-engineering source code to produce UML models.

Code generation uses Acceleo. It is incremental and can be extended thanks to its overriding system.

Common Build Infrastructure

The Eclipse Common Build Infrastructure (CBI) combines technologies and practices for building Eclipse Software.

Eclipse SmartHome

The Eclipse SmartHome project is a framework that allows building smart home solutions that have a strong focus on heterogeneous environments, i.e. solutions that deal with the integration of different protocols or standards. Its purpose is to provide a uniform access to devices and information and to facilitate different kinds of interactions with them. This framework consists out of a set of OSGi bundles that can be deployed on an OSGi runtime and which defines OSGi services as extension points.

Eclipse SCADA

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a type of industrial control system (ICS). Industrial control systems are computer controlled systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems historically distinguish themselves from other ICS systems by being large scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances.

Fundamental Modeling Concepts

This project aims at providing meta models and editors for FMC to support software architects and consultants in defining and analyzing system landscapes on the conceptual as well as on the design level. This project focuses firstly on the FMC Block diagram and integrates already existing diagram types from Papyrus UML to offer a holistic TAM modeling support. In addition, the project will define meta models and provide editors for the other FMC diagram types. The FMC Block Diagram editor will be based on Eclipse Graphiti and uses EMF/Ecore for the respective meta model.


Sirius enables the specification of a modeling workbench in terms of graphical, table or tree editors with validation rules and actions using declarative descriptions.


e(fx)clipse provides tooling and runtime components that help developers to create JavaFX applications.
