    Eclipse at JavaOne

    Tuesday, May 10, 2005 - 11:48 by Anonymous (not verified)
    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...

    Eclipse RCP RSS Reader

    Friday, April 29, 2005 - 08:09 by Anonymous (not verified)
    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...

    A Great Week

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 - 21:58 by Mike Milinkovich
    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...

    Analyst View of Eclipse

    Tuesday, April 26, 2005 - 09:09 by Anonymous (not verified)
    Today I had the opportunity to listen to a webinar Eclipse Changes the Game for Application Development by Carl Zetie of Forrester Research. Unfortunately I think you need to be a client of Forrester to see the slides but I was lucky enough to be an invited guest. I’ve had...

    Brand Hijack

    Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 16:31 by Anonymous (not verified)
    I have just finished reading a new book on branding called Brand Hijack: marketing without marketing, by Alex Wipperfurth. I’m often pretty skeptical about ‘marketing/branding’ books but this one was pretty good. They author was involved with the marketing at Napster but also uses Linux, Apple, and others as case...
