Eclipse Lyo is an SDK to help the Eclipse community to adopt OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) specifications and build OSLC-compliant tools.


Lyo 2.1 now available!

Lyo features


We’ll provide the pieces to get your client or server up and running with OSLC. We’re focusing on Java initially; however, JavaScript and other languages will soon follow.

What is OSLC?

An open community

We are an open, industry-wide community that is dedicated to reducing the barriers between lifecycle tools.

We want to help others build software that easily integrates with other software, which will let you build your ideal development environment, minimize frustration, and save time and money.

Writing open specifications

We write specifications that are…

  • Flexible: Our specifications allow any OSLC-compliant tool to easily use the data of any other OSLC-compliant tool
  • Free to adopt: All of our specifications are free to use.
  • Based on open data standards: Our specifications use REST interfaces and URLs to expose lifecycle data

For many types of software

OSLC’s scope started with Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and is expanding to include integrations across Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and IT Service Management (ISM/DevOps)

As OSLC expands, we want to help the Eclipse community to build OSLC-compliant software.
