CEDET, as the name suggests, is a collection of various tools, connected
mostly by the fact they're developed together, and some depend on the
others. Semantic is the most prominent part of CEDET, which gives the
access to a complete language parser infrastructure, and subsequently to
its output, allowing for construction of language-sensitive tools (for
example, ones that know what variables are visible at any given point in
the source) without tying them to any particular language.

ECB is a collection of tools supposed to give better code browsing (hence
the name) tools, as opposed to the ones aimed at writing code.

Winring is not tied or related at all to either of the two, just that ECB
has explicit support for it because it does some heavy windows-management
