This is an Eclipse plugin that implements a Groovy REPL that makes it very easy to learn Eclipse and SWT. One key difference is that the Groovy scripts have access to the Eclipse Objects of the Eclipse instance running those Groovy scripts. This means that it is possible to program and change the current Eclipse instance without needing to restart Eclipse
This can also be used as a 'Eclipse Plugin to create/develop Eclipse Plugins', which in fact is what happens for Security Innovation's Eclipse Plugin for Fortify.
There is also fluent API for Eclipse and SWT, which makes it really easy to program Eclipse/SWT and reduces the amount of code that needs to be written when creating Eclipse plugins.
See Installing Eclipse Plugin Builder, accessing Eclipse objects and adding a new Menu Item that opens Owasp.org website for installation instructions and Eclipse Plugin that allows the execution of REPL Groovy Scripts (in the current Eclipse Instance) and Fluent API for Eclipse+SWT for multiple posts on how it works and can be used.
The book Practical Eclipse Plugin Development contains the blogs posted during the development of this plugin.
