The Role of Eclipse in Enterprise Development

After more than five successful years in the industry, it's safe to say the Eclipse Foundation and its platform have dramatically changed the field of software development. It may not be the best Java IDE available today, but Eclipse has driven several of the former Java IDE leaders out of the market. It has become the foundation for embedded development applications, and Eclipse is rapidly becoming home to a variety of tools, spanning the development life cycle. If its industry momentum continues, the Eclipse Rich Client Platform may start to change how you build all types of applications.

The Eclipse model, a unique combination of cooperation and competition, has driven this amazing industry trend. Vendors cooperate on defining the Eclipse platform and fundamental approach, and compete with each other on compliant features. The Eclipse model has been widely successful in bringing about a wave of innovation.

This Special Report details Eclipse's approach to development and demonstrates how it is being implemented in different areas. It incorporates reporting from the recent the EclipseCon 2007 conference, as well as exclusive interviews with Eclipse Foundation executives.
