If the device runs with one of the supported platforms, then ECLiPSe 
should run on it. Otherwise you may need to port ECLiPSe to the platform.

Some years ago at IC-Parc, one of the ECLiPSe team member ported ECLiPSe 
to run on his PDA. I can't remember the details now, but I don't think 
it was one of the supported platforms for ECLiPSe, and was probably some 
form of Linux running on an ARM or something like that. I remember he 
even had TkECLiPSe running on the PDA.

There are some (short) hints for porting ECLiPSe in the Setup guide, 
which is distributed with ECLiPSe, and if you have the source, it is in
<ECLiPSe>/documents/internal/SetupGuide.doc. It is a MS Word document.
The latest version of this document is in the main branch (6.0) of 
ECLiPSe, so you may want to download the source (eclipse_src.tgz) from

http://87.230.22.228/Distribution/Dev/<version>/src

although I would recommend that you try porting 5.10 instead of 6.0 
because it is more stable.

Cheers,

Kish
