Welcome to our new series ‘Foundation Talk’ in which we introduce the staff of the Eclipse Foundation. Wayne Beaton, Director of Open Source Projects, is the first person we’d like you to meet.
Maximilian Kögel and Jonas Helming have written an exciting article about setting up an ideal Eclipse distribution. To realize that, they used the Oomph framework. In this article we will talk about some methods we can use to organize distribution of that same setup.
All Eclipse packages are now shipped with the Automated Error Reporting client (AERI). In this article Andreas Sewe, CTO at Codetrails, points out that it’s been a year since AERI became part of the Eclipse packages and looks back at how the Automated Error Reporting Initiative has helped fix Eclipse project bugs.
In this article Roland Grunberg, Software Engineer at Red Hat, presents a handful of new features available in Eclipse Neon. If you find yourself using Docker images/containers, you should try out this plugin as it’s sure to simplify various use cases.
Eclipse Neon has just been released. We talked to Ian Skerrett, VP of Marketing and Ecosystem at Eclipse Foundation, about the strengths and weaknesses of this new release and the Eclipse Foundation’s plans for 2017/2018.
We talked to Angelo Zerr, Eclipse E4 CSS Engine creator, Eclipse Nebula committer and Eclipse WTP Incubator committer, about the TypeScript compiler for Eclipse, its advantages and the features that are included in this new plug-in, as well as the ones that may be implemented in future releases.
Eclipse hawkBit  is a new project within the Eclipse IoT Working Group , the goal of which is to furnish an open platform for the Internet of Things. hawkBit is a project initiated by Bosch Software Innovations in support of this initiative, joining the Eclipse Vorto  and Eclipse Hono  projects. It will concentrate on providing a framework that allows for the simple integration of a software update functionality into an IoT solution or platform.
The Eclipse project Papyrus has progressed since the founding of the Papyrus Industry Consortium earlier this year. The platform for the UML-based software modeling is now supported by companies such as Airbus, Atos, Ericsson, Fraunhofer Fokus and Zeligsoft. We talked to Papyrus user Michael Jastram and delivery specialist Charles Rivet about the current state and the future of Papyrus.
Interoperability is one of the key topics in the Internet of Things – and at the heart of this is the way in which individual, connected components work together. Communication between these elements makes sense only if the underlying language can actually be understood by the devices involved. Yet from a technological perspective, this can be difficult to achieve due to the wide variety of existing communication protocols. As a result, this calls for some means of translating between the individual languages.
Eclipse IoT is a collection of open source projects for the development of Internet of Things solutions. It is one of the most active working groups in the Eclipse Foundation, currently featuring 25 projects. Here we present a brief overview of some popular offerings.
2016 has just begun and it is already bombarding up with promises of a sunnier IoT perspective and a heftier collection of tips and tricks to facilitate developers’ performance. This JAX Magazine issue is packed with proof that OSGi is regaining momentum and other concepts that have one purpose and one purpose only: to curtail unproductive operations -it’s our treat!
Recently, JAXenter reported on the fifth milestone for Eclipse Neon – but the Eclipse Foundation does not forget about the actual Eclipse version Mars. Here is the second service update, aka Mars.2.
Ask anybody these days about hot software technology topics and you’re bound to hear the word Containers which are light-weight virtual machines that operate on the process level. They can be instantiated very quickly and are easy to configure. If you are going to enter the world of Containers, then you will undoubtedly run into the name Docker which is quickly becoming the ubiquitous standard. Docker is the trademarked company name but also used when referring to their implementation of container technology.
