Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools, and runtimes for building, deploying, and managing software across the lifecycle.

In addition to providing a development platform, Eclipse can also be used to create XHTML-based information centers (infocenters). This allows users to access Eclipse help files over the Internet or an intranet by displaying the files in a Web browser.
