Eclipse is an integrated development environment for open source and cross-platform applications, whose main use is to serve as a programming, compilation and debugging platform for a myriad of programming languages. Although its most widespread function is to serve to program in Java, its modularity allows it to expand its set of tools to serve as a programming base in C or Python among many others.
Its framework or development environment is clear and is divided into several different rendering windows with a high degree of customization. In addition, although its code editor has built-in debugging and error analysis tools, it also allows working with project previews, so for example, we can see how our application is displayed in Java without having to compile and launch the application.
The Eclipse Standard version includes the Java development IDE, as well as its Development Tools (JDT), plugins necessary to program in this language.
