AccuRev Joins Eclipse Foundation; Continues to Enhance Eclipse Plug-in

Source: BusinessWire
AccuRev, Inc. today announced it has joined the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In-Provider to further its support and influence on open source standards within the software configuration management (SCM) industry. Eclipse is an open source, vendor-independent integration platform that allows developers to use their preferred tools within a common development environment.

AccuRev supports a best-of-breed strategy for application lifecycle development, which is fully consistent with the goals of Eclipse. AccuRev was founded on a vision to improve the obstacles that distributed teams face when using the previous generation of SCM tools. AccuRev's experience with the requirements of distributed, parallel development will position it to make a significant contribution to the Eclipse community.

"AccuRev views ourselves as an open, standards-based provider of productivity tools to engineers, so we have a natural alignment with the Eclipse Foundation," says Lorne Cooper, President, AccuRev, Inc. "The Eclipse vision of an open, comprehensive, development environment for best-of-breed toolsets is one that benefits our mutual customers, and something we want to continue to support."

"The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to welcome AccuRev as a member and we look forward to AccuRev's progressive thinking regarding software configuration management to reduce complexity for development teams utilizing Eclipse," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, Inc. "We also look forward to their participation in the projects and open source development."
