   by a project's build class path
 * Type Hierarchy View - shows the sub- and supertype hierarchies
 * Java Outline View - shows the structure of a Java compilation unit
   or class file
 * Java Browsing Perspecitve - allows navigating the Java model using
   separate views for projects, packages, types and memebers.
 * Wizards for creating Java elements - Java project, package, class,
   interface
 * Java Editor - syntax coloring, content specific code assist, code
   resolve, method level edit, import assistance, quick fix and quick
   assist

In addition to these workbench elements the following functions are provided:
 * Refactoring support - Extract Method, Safe Rename and Moving with
   reference updates, Self Encapsulate Field etc.
 * Java searching - find declarations of and/or references to packages,
   types, methods, and fields, scoped to the workspace, a working set,
   or the current selection.
 * Java aware structured compare - determine and present changes to
   individual Java methods. It supports to replace individual Java elements
   with a version of an element from the local history.

This package will be maintained by the Java Team. It's required
to transition away from the old src:eclipse package.
