Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration Project

Lyo OSLC SDK Proposed as New Eclipse Project

Jessica Thornsby

Lyo has been proposed for enabling Eclipse users to create OSCL compliant tools.

Lyo has been proposed as a new Eclipse project
under the Eclipse Technology Container Project. Lyo will provide an
SDK (featuring candidate reference implementations, test suites,
and code libraries) to facilitate the adoption of Open Services for
Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) specifications and enable Eclipse
users to build OSCL compliant tools. OSLC is a community that
targets reducing barriers for lifecycle tool integration, which
started by focusing on Application Lifecycle Management, and is
currently expanding to include integrations across Product
Lifecycle Management and IT Service Management.

The initial contribution will come from the OSLC
Tools project
, currently open sourced on, which
includes reference implements for various OSLC specifications,
examples and code snippets, and a test suite for validating OSLC
provider implementations. The current codebase is mostly Java code.
The proposal is to move this OSLC Tools Project to Eclipse. The
project will not create OSLC compliant tools, but will create an
SDK that enables others in the Eclipse community to create
OSLC-based tool integrations.

The initial contribution is expected in July.
