JAX Innovation Award Winners

Friday, May 12, 2006 - 05:53 by Anonymous (not verified)

The winners of the JAX Innovation Awards were announced this week at the JAX and Eclipse Forum Europe conference. Of course it is great to see 3 out of the 5 winners were Eclipse based platforms. ?

The bioeclipse platform looks really interesting and I think it reflects a trend for vertical oriented platforms to start emerging; for instance, Gumtree and the Open Healthcare Framework.

It is also interesting to see E-Chalk is based on OSGi. They seem to use the Oscar framework, instead of Eclipse Equinox, but I think demonstrates OSGi is gaining acceptance as a component model for software development.
