The Eclipse is all about plugins. Eclipse engine consists of plug-ings. plug-ins are everywhere. In fact Eclipse is just a box with very thin borders, which is full of plugins. You will never see Eclipse itself. Just plug-ins. In fact Eclipse consists of runer, which runs Eclipse's engine and then invokes XML parser for detecting all contributions to workspace and listing all included plug-ins. Eclipse is done in the way, that contributions are posiible to any place in the workspace - top menu, tool bars of all view, toll bar of the editor pane, pop-up menus, events, etc.
