In simple words, Amazon SDK is a Software Development Kit which consists of various tools that helps a developer creating an application for certain software, framework, hardware platform, computer system, or any other development platform. AWS SDK provides Java APIs and removes the complexity out of the coding.
We can download and install Eclipse IDE from official site : https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
You’ll get Eclipse Jee Oxygen, you’ll click on it. Once you’ll click on it, Eclipse Oxygen 3A will get launched. Once it is launched, you’ll find an Eclipse Launcher dialog. In Eclipse Launcher dialog, you may change or select the Workspace and finally, you’ll click on Launch.
