Eclipse Foundation and Versant Announce Approval of Eclipse JSR220-ORM Project



The Eclipse Foundation, an open source community committed to the development of a universal development platform, and Versant Corporation , an industry leader in specialized data management and data persistence software, today announced that the JSR220-ORM Project proposed by Versant in March of this year has been approved by Eclipse. The Eclipse JSR220-ORM Project will produce standards-based, object-relational mapping design-time tooling in Eclipse. JSR220 is the specification defining the standard for object-relational mapping (ORM) in Java. Object-relational mapping has emerged in the last year as a critical missing piece of software architecture in the drive to make the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform more powerful and easier to program. The Eclipse JSR220-ORM Project is designed to bring common tooling to the Java and Eclipse community to expand programming productivity and the value of Eclipse.

"The creation of the JSR220-ORM project is an important milestone for the Eclipse community," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, Inc. "This project will provide a common framework for delivering productivity and consistency in the important area of object-relational mapping."
