Actuate Corporation

"Since its release, BIRT has captured the interest of the Eclipse community and anticipation of BIRT 2.2 has been high. BIRT has been an integral part of the Actuate product line from August, 2005 when we incorporated release 1.0 and we will continue that commitment with BIRT 2.2, providing value-add features, products and services built on top of the Eclipse open source release. This includes the Actuate iPortal, an enterprise-grade JEE report delivery application, and Interactive Viewer to provide users with Web 2.0-style interaction and personalization of BIRT reports."

These are offered world-wide through traditional classroom training or VIRTUAL hands-on, live, instructor-led classes conducted by Eclipse University of AvantSoft. Through internal training sessions, our consultants have been made aware of the new features of Europa and how to apply them to provide better solutions for our clients.

Red Hat

"The Eclipse Europa release is a fantastic example of the power of the open source development model. Having 21 projects coordinate a release is a challenge in any context, but the fact that Eclipse is able to do this among distinct projects with disparate parties and differing interests is a testament to the openness, quality, and speed of open source," said Bryan Che, product manager for tools, Red Hat. "Red Hat is excited to support the Eclipse Europa distribution and will be basing its inaugural release of the fully open source Red Hat Developer Studio on Eclipse Europa later this summer."

"The release of Eclipse Europa continues to demonstrate the reliability and predictability of open source technology from Eclipse. Wind River has contributed significant engineering to the C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT), Device Debugging (DSDP-DD) and Target Management (DSDP-TM) projects in preparation for Europa and for our commercial adoption of these technologies in our upcoming Wind River Workbench 3.0 development suite. We believe CDT 4.0, Device Debugging 0.9, and Target Management 2.0 to be significant base technologies for building our advanced tools for device software development, and we look forward to continuing our extensive contributions to Eclipse and to our continued adoption of additional Eclipse technology. Wind River is committed to driving open standards for the embedded software industry and creating complete solutions for device software optimization that add value across the development lifecycle."
