Getting to know Eclipse:
d.tools is a plug-in for the Eclipse platform. d.tools integrates into Eclipse and makes use of many of Eclipse's built-in features. Thus, familiarity with the general Eclipse interface will help you find your way around d.tools. If you are not familiar with Eclipse, we suggest reading through the initial sections of the Eclipse 3.1 Workbench User Guide (link will open in a separate window).
