    Ubuntu - Eclipse

    What is the difference between sudo apt-get install eclipse and sudo apt-get install eclipse-platform when installing Eclipse? Which one should I take?
    Thanks.

    Re: Ubuntu - Eclipse

    The difference in the two packages descriptions is
    Code:
    apt-cache show eclipse
    
    Description-en: Extensible Tool Platform and Java IDE
     The Eclipse Platform is an open and extensible platform for anything and yet
     nothing in particular. It provides a foundation for constructing and running
     integrated software-development tools. The Eclipse Platform allows tool
     builders to independently develop tools that integrate with other people's
     tools so seamlessly you can't tell where one tool ends and another starts.
    
    This package provides the whole Eclipse SDK that contains Eclipse Platform,
     Java development tools and Plug-in Development Environment, including source
     and both user and programmer documentation.
    and
    Code:
    apt-cache show eclipse-platform
    
    Description-en: Eclipse platform without development plug-ins
     The Eclipse Platform is an open and extensible platform for anything and yet
     nothing in particular. It provides a foundation for constructing and running
     integrated software-development tools. The Eclipse Platform allows tool
     builders to independently develop tools that integrate with other people's
     tools so seamlessly you can't tell where one tool ends and another starts.
     .
     This package provides the Eclipse Platform and is the base for all Eclipse
     development plug-ins, but it does not include any. These are available in
     different packages, for example:
     .
      * eclipse-jdt Java Development Tools
      * eclipse-pde Plug-in Development Tools
      * eclipse-cdt C/C++ Development Tools
