Two of the Most Successful Open Source Communities Collaborate to Better Integrate J2EE Development Tools and Middleware.

JBoss and the Eclipse Foundation today announced that JBoss has become a member of the Eclipse Foundation and will contribute code toward the J2EE Standard Tools Project. By working together, the two will combine their expertise to provide a more complete and tightly integrated open source tools and middleware solution.

Eclipse is an award-winning universal platform for application development tools integration, software modeling and testing that has been broadly adopted by commercial vendors, academic institutions and open technology developers.

JBoss provides the industry’s most widely used open source J2EE application server and a range of related open source middleware technologies and products. Additionally, it offers the JBoss-IDE, an open source integrated development environment that is used with Eclipse. Many developers use the JBoss-IDE and Eclipse to debug, monitor and control JBoss servers; use XDoclet; and aid in J2EE development of EJBs, servlets and Web services.

“Our objective in joining the Eclipse Foundation, one of the most respected and active open source organizations, is to contribute code that we believe will make it easier for developers to work with JBoss,” said Bob Bickel, vice president of strategy and corporate development, JBoss, Inc. “We anticipate our first major contribution will be a plug-in that will provide developers with a Java-based, aspect oriented framework that will be of use in any programming environment.”

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said, “By working with Eclipse to provide better development tools, JBoss will ultimately help developers build better, easier to use middleware. Eclipse is already in widespread use among companies working with the JBoss Application Server. Now, by formalizing our relationship, the Eclipse Foundation and JBoss will be able to provide developers with an even more complete solution.”

Ashish Larivee, director of product marketing for exteNd and Nsure at Novell, a JBoss Authorized Service Partner and Eclipse Foundation member, commented, “Novell is committed to Eclipse as the common development environment across Novell products, and we believe that JBoss has a unique opportunity to provide leadership to the Eclipse community. We look forward to working together to drive the adoption of J2EE applications on Linux and open source.”
