The Java development tools (JDT) contribute a set of plug-ins for Java development. Like the Eclipse Platform it provides APIs and extension points inviting developers to extend and customize the Java tooling.
The tutorial introduces the core infrastructure (Java model, DOM/AST, search engine, type hierarchy, batch compiler), discusses the design decisions behind it and shows examples of extensions using the Eclipse JDT API and extension points.
