Hi,

Can anyone explain about plugin and what it is? and how it is developed and how to configure in the IDE like Eclipse.

Somin,
Eclipse comes with some functionality built in. Everything else is available as a "plugin". This means you can take an external jar file and use it with Eclipse. In this way it is plugged in. Of course, this jar file must be developed in a certain way. There are whole books on developing plugins. But to use one, all you have to do is unzip it in the plugins directory.

Ya i meant Plugin Development in Eclipse.

My guess is plugin is a third party tool which can be configured in any IDE.
