eCos uses the GNU tools. That means you develop with the editor of your
choice and the tools are all command line, although you can use insight if
you wish which is a graphical frontend to the GDB debugger. Some people
have reported instability with it so it is disabled by default with the
tools available with the default installation of eCos. Add "-w" to GDB's
arguments to see it.
If you want something more like a full integrated development environment
(IDE) then that's not something shipped with the default eCos. Instead you
need to contact companies that do commercial eCos support (see URL in my
sig for example, although there may be others who also do IDE support).

I'm not quite sure what you mean here - it's up to you to write the
applications you want :-). Unless you mean things like web servers, SNMP
daemons etc. which eCos does have?
