It also comprises of APIs, compiler, linker and debugger. It was built to help a developer while incorporating softwares into programs or systems. These kits are given out by the developers to gamers as they help to create applications that will enhance the operation of other software. This term was popularized by Microsoft as in Windows SDK or Windows Media SDK. It is also known as JDK or devkit.

These SDKs can be downloaded from the internet directly as they are distributed for free by the developers to encourage the people to use the system or language thus acting as a marketing tool. It may or may not come with attached licenses which would make them suitable only if it is developed under certain circumstances.
