Eclipse is probably best known as a Java IDE, but it is more: it is an IDE framework, a tools framework, an open source project, a community, an eco-system, and a foundation.https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse.org-common/themes/solstice/public/images/logo/eclipse-200x200.png
Libra is an open source project under the Eclipse Web Tools Platform Container Project. It provides standard tools for OSGi Enterprise application development and in particular tools that integrate the existing WTP and PDE tooling so that OSGi Enterprise applications can be developed with both tooling at the same time. Libra also will enable users to work with tools for better experience in the Server-Side Equinox scenario.
The goals of the project are:
Libra is in the Incubation Phase.
Libra releases version 0.2 as part of Juno! New and Noteworthy
Video Tutorials now available!
Libra releases version 0.1 as part of Indigo! New and Noteworthy
The new tools at Eclipse for OSGi Enterprise Development (Libra) will be presented by the project lead Kaloyan Raev at the EclipseCon 2011 which will take place in March 2011 in Santa Clara.
