This section describes how to develop your JCR, Apache Sling or CQ5 application with CRXDE.
Please refer to the overview documentation for more information on the different development environments that are available.
CRXDE is a pre-packaged stand-alone Eclipse application. CRXDE is custom-built specifically for CQ and CRX and thus enables you to efficiently develop your project. CRXDE gives you a broad set of tools to easily create a project, create and manage files, folders, templates, components, dialogs, nodes, properties, scripts and bundles while logging, debugging and integrating with SVN. CRXDE is built on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP), leveraging the Eclipse File System (EFS) API.
CRXDE is recommended when you develop complex applications by creating new components and Java bundles.
