I would like to know the difference between Eclipse Web Tools Platform and the other Eclipse IDE versions like Ganymede and Galileo.

Nothing: Eclipse version names are just that, a code name for a particular release. WTP is a plugin (set of plugins, probably) that work with Eclipse.

Thanks for the reply David. Do you mean to say WTP is a plugin which can be integrated into Eclipse Ganymede or Galileo just like other eclipse plug-ins?

The WTP plugin is already included if you download the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" package.

If you downloaded another package that doesn't include WTP, then yes you can just install it later.

But I recommend that you start with the "IDE for Java EE" package.

Thank You. One more question. I'm not sure if this should go into XSL forums. But since this is IDE related, I will stick to this. Can we debug XSL in Eclipse IDE with the basic installation of Eclipse IDE. Do I need any plugin?

It would be great if you could explain the process involved in setting up break points for XSL and debugging XSL code in Eclipse IDE.

See http://wiki.eclipse.org/XSLT_Project. Based on that, I would assume that the web tools provide XSLT debugging. I'll have to look into that, I've often scratched my head when my transforms have gone awry.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
