  Description     : Eclipse Java Development Tools Core

Eclipse JDT Core is the Java infrastructure of the Eclipse Java IDE.
It includes:
 * An incremental Java compiler. Implemented as an Eclipse builder, it is based
   on technology evolved from VisualAge for Java compiler. In particular, it
   allows to run and debug code which still contains unresolved errors.
 * A Java Model that provides API for navigating the Java element tree.
   The Java element tree defines a Java centric view of a project. It surfaces
   elements like package fragments, compilation units, binary classes, types,
   methods, fields.
 * A Java Document Model providing API for manipulating a structured Java
   source document.
 * Code assist and code select support.
 * An indexed based search infrastructure that is used for searching, code
   assist, type hierarchy computation, and refactoring. The Java search engine
   can accurately find precise matches either in sources or binaries.
 * Evaluation support either in a scrapbook page or a debugger context.
 * Source code formatter.

The JDT Core infrastructure has no built-in JDK version dependencies, it also
does not depend on any particular Java UI and can be run headless.

This package will be maintained by the Java Team.
