1. what is accelerator in hybris?
The intention of the accelerator is to speed up development time for a variety of e-commerce scenarios.
The accelerator templates are delivered as source code. When you develop a project using the accelerator we actually change this code. Instead of changing it directly, the correct way to work is to separate your project code base from that of the accelerator. To do this we replicate the yaccelerator* extensions into our project namespace.

2. what is addon ?
The AddOn concept aims at extending the Accelerator storefront without touching its core code base. For example, you could implement customer feedback functionality on your storefront without editing the source code. Instead, you would plug in all the functionality from within your AddOn.

3. what is difference in extension, accelerator and addon in hybris ?
accelerator is like code template for different needs.Extension is like the readymade code box over which we can append our code. Addon is sort of extension using which we can build plug-able code components in hybris.
