+Contributing to Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment (EASE)
+=============================================================
+
+Thanks for your interest in this project.
+
+
+Project description:
+--------------------
+
+EASE allows the execution of script code (using scripting languages such as JS, Python, ...) within the context of the Eclipse Platform/RCP. As they are running in the same JRE as Eclipse itself, these scripts have direct access to any class of your application and may interact with your workbench.
+
+Through keywords within header data, scripts might be integrated seamlessly into the UI as toolbar and/or menu contributions. Thus the functionality could be extended by providing scripts only. No need to build, export and install a new feature, just provide a script and add it to your application at runtime.
+
+Scripting allows to easily extend an existing application, helps in automating everyday tasks and aids in rapid prototyping during application development.
