Any/all of the above. One suspects that a subdivision of the
~/Library/Application Support/Eclipse/ directory could be performed;
for example .../Eclipse/Bundles/.

There's also a ~/Library/Preferences directory specifically for
preferences, but normally there's one file per application, and I'm
not sure that Eclipse's preferences are suitably well structured to
put into ~/Library/Preferences/ directory.
