EasyEclipse's primary purpose is to provide easy-to-install and -use distributions of Eclipse, rather than develop new code. The code we have developed is for assembling, testing and distributing the different distributions of EasyEclipse.
This project was started from a search on Google. Although things have improved, this "Eclipse Download Hell" document still is the fifth document returned by a Google search for “eclipse download”. Clearly there is still room for improvement in the way Eclipse is distributed. There is an incredible ecosystem around Eclipse, but the needs of individual developers are not yet particularly well-served.
