The objectives of the Eclipse Packaging project is to create entry level downloads based on defined profiles. The project defined and created the EPP downloads of Java Developer, Java for Enterprise Developer, C/C++ Developer and others. These downloads are available from the main Eclipse download page.
The Eclipse Packaging project works with and depends on many other key projects in the Eclipse ecosystem, including:
- Eclipse Oomph which provides the Eclipse Installer
- Eclipse Tycho which provides the Build infrastructure to be able to produce packages (products)
- Eclipse IDE website where you can download the IDE from, which is maintained by the Eclipse Foundation
- All the plug-ins that are bundled in the packages.
