    The Eclipse "Vision"

    "The vision of Eclipse, on a technology level, was to have a single platform that multiple vendors would contribute to that could target small devices, like embedded devices, or workstations or mainframes.

    "So it’s sort of like from the wristwatch to the mainframe. Because of the current number of people that are really engaged in working on this, we're really only able to really optimize in the workstation environment but the technology capabilities are to drive it into the embedded, drive it into the J2EE Web services space, to drive it into industry verticals, and that requires lots of people who have those skill sets to contribute...far more than any one company, even [a company] the size of IBM.

    But, by having that extensible platform, multiple people with specific skill sets would begin to contribute and then the industry benefits."

    Skip McGaughey, founding chairman of the Eclipse Consortium

    The New Eclipse Foundation Board

    "Representatives of Genuitec, SAS Institute, the University of Washington and IBM were elected to the board on Tuesday. The four join software executives from IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Ericsson, MontaVista Software, QNX Software Systems, SAP and Serena Software, who are current board members. A new executive director of Eclipse has not yet been chosen, according to the foundation.

    IBM founded Eclipse in late 2001 as an open-source consortium and last month changed the bylaws of the group to make it a not-for-profit open-source foundation. The Eclipse software is a platform for combining multiple development tools, such as source code management and application modeling, within a single programming application. The software can work with different programming languages but has become popular for use with Java."
