Eclipse Consortium Grows to 30 Members in First Year, Launches New Open-Source Projects
Eclipse Consortium Grows to 30 Members in First Year, Launches New Open-Source Projects

(December 18, 2002) - The Eclipse Consortium welcomes thirteen new member companies, and announces four new open-source projects for tools and technology: COBOL, Project Hyades for Automated Software Quality, the Eclipse Modeling Framework, and the Koi Project.

The thirteen new member companies and organization that have recently joined the Eclipse Consortium include: AltoWeb, Catalyst Systems, Flashline, Hewlett-Packard, ETRI (the Korean information technology research institute), MKS Software, Oracle, Parasoft, SAP, SlickEdit, TeamStudio, Timesys, and OMG, the Object Management Group. They join members: Fujitsu, Hitachi, Ltd., Instantiations, Inc., MontaVista Software, Scapa Technologies Limited, Serena Software, Sybase, Telelogic, Trans-Enterprise Integration Corp. and founding members Borland, IBM, MERANT, QNX Software Systems, Rational Software, RedHat, SuSE, and TogetherSoft in providing ongoing support for Eclipse open-source projects.

Since its inception a year ago, Eclipse has had more than 3.1 million download requests logged from more than 125 countries. A worldwide "ecosystem" of tools providers and consumers is forming around the Eclipse Platform, an open, universal tools integration platform for multi-language, multi-platform and multi-vendor choice which makes it easier to create, integrate, and use software tools.

Eclipse is structured in open-source projects supported by member companies and individuals that freely contribute support, technology, and skill. New open-source projects are forming to extend the core Eclipse Platform with tools, frameworks and reusable technology for key development areas. These projects include:

  • Tools for developing in the COBOL Language, based upon a donation from Fujitsu.
  • The Eclipse Modeling Framework, based upon OMG's Model Driven Architecture, with participation from IBM, Rational, and Togethersoft .
  • Project Hyades, a new framework and reusable technology supporting deployment of Automated Software Quality (test and trace) tools led by IBM, Scapa Technologies, Telelogic, and Parasoft.
  • The Koi Project, a new infrastructure supporting collaborative development activities between team members, led by Instantiations, Inc.

    A growing number of offerings powered by Eclipse technology are now available from member companies like IBM (WebSphere Studio), Instantiations (CodePro Studio), MERANT (PVCS), QNX Software Systems (Momentix), Rational (XDE; ClearCase), and others. Embarcadero, Genuitec, Interwoven, Junit, MacroMedia, MKS, Parasoft, Sitraka, StarBase, Versant, Versata, and TransVirtual have introduced commercially available Eclipse based offerings.
