This may sound like a crazy idea. However, I have decided to ask this question.

We are working on a product which is similar to the concepts of Eclipse. There is a base Java based platform and we could add diffrent modules as plugins. This is not a Commercial Product and will have to be available for free distribution.

My question is, rather than Building this project from scratch Could I use the Eclipse code and write our own modules as plugins.

I tried to read the legal stuff on Eclipse.org. Could not get clear answer.

Thanks
Sri
