A project to enable developers to build AJAX-enabled Web applications using Eclipse technology has been proposed by Innoopract, according to Eclipse, which is holding its annual technical conference, EclipseCon 2006, in Santa Clara, Calif. this week.
The Proposal for Rich AJAX Platform (RAP), currently is in the review stage at Eclipse.
"RAP will offer the ease of development of Eclipse, Eclipse extensibility and user experience by reusing Eclipse technology for distributed applications and by encapsulating AJAX technologies into simple-to-use Java components (as SWT encapsulates native widgets)," Eclipse said.
Also, open source database provider MySQL on Monday announced it has joined Eclipse as an Add-in Provider member. MySQL plans to contribute to the Eclipse Data Tools Platform project and collaborate with Zend Technologies and others on the proposed Eclipse PHP IDE project.
