Eclipse is a kind of universal tool platform - an open extensible IDE for anything and nothing in particular. The real value of Eclipse comes from tool plug-ins that "teach" Eclipse how to work with things - java files, web content, graphics, video, etc. Eclipse allows you to independently develop tools that integrate with other people's tools seamlessly.
Eigenbase Resource Generator (ResGen) generates wrapper classes for Java resource bundles. The generated classes contain a 'get' method for every resource string, with parameters appropriate to the parameters embedded in the resource string. If the resource is some kind of exception, it also generates a 'new' method to create an instance of that exception. C++ generation is also supported.
