BEA Executive Defends Decision Not To Join Eclipse

Source: Dr. Dobb's Journal

Summary:

A BEA executive defended BEA's decision not to join the Eclipse Foundation in light of news that the Java software vendor is supporting third-party development of an Eclipse plug-in for Project Beehive.

BEA unveiled Project Beehive last month as an open-source version of the application framework of BEA's WebLogic Workshop tool, which uses visual controls to build J2EE-based applications and Web services. BEA subsequently gave the project to the Apache Software Foundation, which now directs Beehive.

Next week at JavaOne, BEA, San Jose, Calif., plans to announce that Instantations, a development shop in Portland, Ore., will build a Beehive plug-in for the Eclipse framework. The plug-in should be in beta by the fall, with the final release available early next year.

Dave Cotter, director of developer marketing at BEA, said joining the Eclipse Foundation, an open-source project spun off by IBM in February, would not be useful for BEA because the company has no desire to build its WebLogic Workshop tool on the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE).

This article, and the next two, are old. For example BEA did indeed join Eclipse and leads the Web tools project now.
