Thank you for the nice suggestions. I really like the "sailing" context they give.|
But how about giving more "tools" direction of the name? Let it be a tool used by sailors for navigation in the ocean. I browsed Wikipedia for tools used in Celestial Navigation.
The most classical tool is the Sextant. But I don't like how this word sounds. There is a low-cost and lightweight variant of this tool. called the Bris Sextant, or just Bris. It comes from the Swedish (and many other languages) word for breeze. It not only sounds good, but its concept for a lightweight tool fits to the concept of the our project to reuse as much as possible of the existing PDE and WTP tooling.
Browsing more through Wikipedia, I found the Astrolabe. The astrolabe is a multipurpose astronomical instrument, including uses for navigation and (pay attention here) casting horoscopes (you know - zodiacs). Astrolabe comes from the Greek "star-taker". I like these many connections: 1) tool; 2) celestial navigation; 3) zodiacs.
So, here are my two suggestions:
1) Eclipse Bris, the OSGi Enterprise Tools
2) Eclipse Astrolabe, the OSGi Enterprise Tools
I like both, but I really really like No. 2.
What do you think about this?
