Eclipse is an application for building integrated web application developments, designed with a common user interface and tools to work in multiple operating systems. The latest top-level source code contains applications for the development environment such as IDE and the eclipse (RCP) rich client platform. Each developed plug-in has the capability of performing small independent tasks like debugging, and testing.
PyDev is a Python IDE for Eclipse, which may be used in Python, Jython and IronPython development.
Python, is an interactive, object-oriented, extensible programming language, widely used for interacting with top-level applications that emphasize code readability. It also supports code reuse for modules and application packages.
