After BEA, Borland, Nokia, Oracle, Sybase… it’s now Compuware who has jumped on to the Eclipse bandwagon.
Compuware has announced that the company has made a strategic, long-term commitment to the Eclipse Foundation by becoming an Eclipse Strategic Developer.
As part of this commitment, Compuware will focus its efforts on application life cycle integration and tool interoperability and dedicate resources to the Eclipse Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) project. Compuware’s move sends a strong signal of support to the initiative aimed at making life cycle integration a key part of Eclipse’s future. By creating an industry standard for tool interoperability, Compuware seeks to help customers cost-effectively improve the delivery of applications across the life cycle.
Compuware will contribute resources — including developers and a future code contribution of Compuware integration technology — to Eclipse and has pledged to lead an Eclipse project in the near future. These contributions are in addition to Compuware development resources already integrating Eclipse technologies into Compuware products, as well as additional product integrations planned for the future.
