SAP takes Eclipse to Sin City

Top down, not bottoms up approach

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The first maintenance release of open source development platform Eclipse Europa hit this week, accompanied by a flurry of activity across the Eclipse community.

Business applications giant SAP, more your business consultant than your average developer's company, tried to cash in at its TechEd conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, where it hosted a stream dedicated to showing how the company really is down with Web 2.0 interfaces and hip to open source development.

The event featured a strong emphasis on Eclipse. SAP is a member of Eclipse, and uses the environment as the basis for its own tools.

One assumes SAP's increased enthusiasm for open source development has nothing at all to do with the realization it should kick-start some kind of grassroots NetWeaver community (here) just as Sourceforge commended enterprise resource planning (ERP) builder Openbravo as September's open source project of the month.

Meanwhile, Interface21 and Tasktop said they are to collaborate on a project to combine Interface21's Eclipse-based Spring IDE with the Tasktop's Mylyn framework to create the Spring Tools Suite, planned for release in March 2008. At the same time software lifecycle specialist LogicLibrary released a bunch of Eclipse plug-ins for the latest release of its Logidex package.

And here's one for your diary: Open Source Asia Summit unveiled a strong line-up of speakers with an Eclipse bias for its event next month in Hong Kong. Speakers include Li Gong, chief executive of Mozilla's Chinese subsidiary, Greg Stein from Google, Collabnet founder Brian Behlendorf and Eclipse Equinox team leader Jeff McAffer.®
