    The PDK contains documentation, examples, javadocs, and sample code for developing portal applications. You don't technically need the PDK to develop EP components, but it sure helps.

    The plugins in SAP NWDS facilitate building and testing portal applications by creating the correct project structure within the Eclipse IDE (NWDS) and also assisting with the deployment of the application (creation of PAR files and uploading them to the portal). Again, you can build EP components without NWDS plugin, but the plugins sure make life a little easier. I do know people that use other IDEs and Ant build scripts for their EP development.

    Hope this helps,
