You will see articles on this site that seem to refer to Echo and EchoPoint interchangeably.
In fact EchoPoint and Echo are so closely related that it can be confusing to know what is EchoPoint and what is Echo.
So to explain, Echo is a web software framework that provides components and events for building web applications in Java.
EchoPoint is a library of components built on top of Echo, that extend its functionality.
The EchoPoint project was started as a central project repository to contain quality open source code ready for use with Echo. Developers are invited to contribute their custom components to the EchoPoint project.
So as you can see they are very closely related.
