Eclipse.org Receives Two JDJ Editors' Awards

  • Honored for J2SE and Eclipse Platform Technology

In the June issue of Java Developer's Journal, the editors announced that Eclipse platform has been awarded two JDJ Editors' Choice Awards.

Jason Bell, J2SE editor for JDJ, wrote "After being anti-IDE for so long I've finally caved in. It (Eclipse) has nice CVS utils, project frameworks, code refactoring and 'sensible' code generation (especially for beans). Add industry backing and a very fired up user base and you have one winning product."

Glen Cordrey, the J2ME editor, commented "Again, free goes a long way, especially with the support piling up behind it (Eclipse).

"We are pleased and honored that JDJ editors have recognized the Eclipse platform not only for its innovation, but also as a highly productive development environment," stated John Wiegand, Eclipse project lead. "The community has worked hard to ensure that the Eclipse Platform is a highly productive platform for creating, integrating and deploying application development tools for use across a broad range of operating environments."

About the JDJ Editors' Choice Awards

The editors of Java Developer's Journal are in a unique position when it comes to Java development. All are active coders in their "day jobs," and they have the good fortune to getting a heads up on many of the latest and greatest software releases. They were asked to nominate three products from the last 12 months that they felt had not only made a major impact on their own development, but also on the Java community as a whole.

About Eclipse

Eclipse is an open source ecosystem of royalty-free technology and a universal platform for tools integration. Eclipse-based tools give developers freedom of choice in a multi-language, multi-platform, multi-vendor supported environment. Eclipse delivers a plug-in based framework that makes it easier to create, integrate and use software tools, saving time and money. By collaborating and sharing core integration technology, tool producers can concentrate on their areas of expertise and the creation of new development technology. The Eclipse Platform is written in the Java™ language, and comes with extensive plug-in construction toolkits and examples. It has already been deployed on a range of development workstations including Linux®, MacOS®, QNX® and Windows® based systems.
