One of our mandates at the Eclipse Foundation is to communicate the differentiated value proposition and broad benefits we deliver to our members. No one can describe the unique entrepreneurial opportunities and advantages offered by the Eclipse ecosystem better than our members themselves.
We recently asked several members to tell us why they joined the Eclipse Foundation and what their membership means for their business. We captured their input in a series of case studies so prospective members can learn from their experiences. We’ll be sharing the case studies with you, starting today with the Payara Services story.
Payara Services joined the Eclipse Foundation in 2017 after Oracle announced it was contributing Java EE and related GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation. The company’s flagship product, Payara Server Enterprise, is based on Eclipse GlassFish, so it was a logical move to participate in Jakarta EE, the successor to Java EE. Membership was affordable because membership fees are based on an organization’s annual corporate revenues.
Today, Payara Services is actively engaged as a Strategic member of the Jakarta EE Working Group alongside much larger companies such as Oracle, IBM, Fujitsu, and Red Hat. According to company founder Steve Millidge, the Eclipse Foundation membership easily pays for itself and has a direct impact on the company’s success.
