    So I have been on the road again this week. First stop was Germany where I was speaking at the JAX conference. The buzz and energy around Eclipse is huge in Germany. Based on a show of hands, at least 90% of the crowd at JAX are using Eclipse for...

    I recently asked Ed Burnette to help write an article about Eclipse 3.1 for an upcoming edition of JDJ. Ed, being a great supportter, said ‘sure and I’m going to get input from the community on my blog. ‘ Kind of a cool way to write an article and something...

    Eclipse at JavaOne

    Eclipse is going to have a booth at JavaOne. I expect Sun to be pushing hard on NetBeans, so I want to make sure Eclipse has a strong showing. Right now we are planning to feature the new releases of each project. If anyone is going to JavaOne and wants...

    We are starting to get ready for the marketing launch of Eclipse 3.1 and all of the other projects that are launching at the same time, including WTP, TPTP, EMF, GEF, VE, UML2, AspectJ,etc. It is really amazing to me that all of these projects will be releasing within 30...

    EclipseCon Metrics

    Friday, May 6, 2005 - 10:25 by Mike Milinkovich
    Joe Winchester sent me an email asking whatever happened to the last slide presented at EclipseCon this year. You know, the one that talked about the various consumption patterns of the attendees. Well, here it is. You really have to wonder if there is a correlation between the 792 gallons...

    Project Phoenix

    Monday, May 2, 2005 - 14:31 by Mike Milinkovich
    One of the many hats that I wear is project lead for the Phoenix project at Eclipse. This is the project that we have proposed to rebuild the eclipse.org website. The project is being set up using the same open source rules of engagement that other projects use at Eclipse...

    I must admit I am just getting into the world of Blogs, RSS and RSS Readers. I know, I am a bit slow. I’ve been using Bloglines as my RSS Reader and really struggle with the primitive browser interface. I just found an Eclipse RCP based reader called RSSOwl. This...

    Well, I am just about to pack it in and head to Tokyo’s Narita Airport for the flight home to Ottawa. The place is going to be a madhouse, as today is the start of Golden Week and is the largest travel day each year in Japan. Not very good...

    Show off your RCP application

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 - 16:15 by Anonymous (not verified)
    I think Eclipse RCP is an exciting part of the Eclipse story. The ability to build rich client applications with a component model that allows for dynamic updates of new features and patches is pretty compelling. In fact, I think for ISVs and open software projects it makes an excellent...

    Eclipse Japan

    The Eclipse Japan web site just went live on eclipse.org. We are very lucky to have strong support in Japan from some key companies: NTT Comware, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC and IBM. I think it is great to have these companies helping provide the Japanese content for eclipse.org. Eclipse is doing...
