Yes, Eclipse can be used for extreme programming. Eclipse can also be used for waterfall, RUP, DSDM, Scrum, Evo, and just about any other software development process which includes writing code. The same with test-driven development -- Eclipse can be used for that, but you can also do TDD with Notepad if you want to.

Yes, the JUnit plugin is part of the default configuration.

I really love the JUnit plug-in for Eclipse. You can set break points in your unit tests, then Run | Debug As .. | JUnit Test. When you hit the breakpoint, you can examine the stack, alter variables, and fix up the code without ever leaving the IDE.

Eclipse is actually a perfect fit for XP. The instant compilation supports very short code/test cycles. Refactoring support is improving continuously. The JUnit plugin makes it very easy to fix your tests by providing clickable stack traces. And the quick fixes are great for programming by intention. Write a test for a non-existing method, press Ctrl-1 on the method call and let Eclipse generate the method body for you.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
