"Agitar's solution, Agitator, makes it practical-for the first
time-for Java software developers to create unit tests as an integral
part of software development. This process, referred to as developer
testing, has a profound positive impact on the quality of delivered
software while shortening development timelines. Providing tight
integration with IDEs maximizes the value of our solution. Our customers
worldwide made it clear that Eclipse is rapidly gaining momentum,
and our first integration should be with the Eclipse platform. We'll
ship our fully-integrated Eclipse version of Agitator this quarter.
We are excited to become part of the rapidly expanding Eclipse community."
- Jerry Rudisin, president and CEO of Agitar
"In the mission- and safety-critical market, our customers
come from a number of industry sectors, each carrying its own certification
standards and specialized tools. Such markets suffer from proprietary
tool chains. But with the Eclipse Platform's strategy of delivering
common platforms that enable embedded developers to mix tools, we
are able to bring to market a broad range of interoperable, commercial
off-the-shelf products that will offer tremendous cost savings,
increased flexibility and a richer feature set for our customers."
- Jacques Brygier, vice president of Marketing at Aonix
"As Eclipse continues to gain momentum, Compuware remains committed
to driving business value from the developer desktop. We provide
unique value to Eclipse developers through our model-driven, pattern-based
approach that transforms models directly into working applications. Additionally,
Compuware's code diagnostics and performance-tuning products help
developers become more efficient and productive."
- Bob Barker, vice president of Strategic Planning at Compuware
"Our objective in joining the Eclipse Foundation, one of the
most respected and active open source organizations, is to contribute
code that we believe will make it easier for developers to work
with JBoss. We anticipate our first major contribution will be a
plug-in that will provide developers with a Java-based, aspect oriented
framework that will be of use in any programming environment."
- Bob Bickel, vice president of Strategy and Corporate Development
of JBoss, Inc.
"We placed a bet in mid 2003 that Eclipse would emerge as the
dominant Java IDE and that bet has paid off big time. Any developer
who has used Eclipse before is instantly able to benefit from the
productivity of Kinzan Studio, our Eclipse-based tool for visually
assembling web applications."
- James O'Leonard, vice president of Product Management &
Marketing at Kinzan Inc.
M1 Global Solutions, Inc.
"M1 is excited to join Eclipse and to extend our participation
in the open source community. By leveraging the Eclipse framework
for M1's Model Driven Architecture (MDA) tool, the Model Driven
Environment (MDE) and our business process modeling tool BPi Studio-in
conjunction with using these tools internally and using modeling
to simplify communications with our off-shore development center-we've
been able to dramatically reduce the time and cost of our software
development efforts at the same time as we increase quality."
- Lawrence Catchpole, chief strategy officer of M1 Global Solutions,
"Embedded developers are now seeing the value of an open framework
for their development tools. As an Eclipse member, Accelerated Technology
now has the ability to play an active role in the open source community
and will be the voice of both Nucleus customers and the embedded
community at large in regards to recommendations and suggestions.
The use of Eclipse with the newly launched Nucleus EDGE embedded
software development environment offers the winning combination
of our powerful true embedded tools technology with the openness
and interoperability of the Eclipse platform."
- Robert Day, director of Marketing at Accelerated Technology,
a Mentor Graphics Division
PureEdge Solutions, Inc.
"As a leader in the area of open standards and as an organization
that has worked closely with many standards organizations, PureEdge
is proud to be a new member of the Eclipse Foundation. Eclipse is
a key component in our ongoing product leadership in the design
and deployment of XML e-forms. Eclipse will become a core foundation
for an integrated design environment that leverages the growing
Eclipse development community. PureEdge also offers a set of products
that support Eclipse-based clients such as IBM's Lotus Workplace."
- Mark Upson, president and CEO of PureEdge Solutions
Real-Time Innovations, Inc. (RTI)
"RTI recently demonstrated its Eclipse plugin tools for visual
debugging, ProfileScope and MemScope, along with Wind River's Eclipse
3.0-based Workbench IDE, in a series of Linux development seminars
across the country. Developers were wowed by the slick environment,
intuitive navigation, and easy visibility into essential development
data through Eclipse perspectives."
- Pauline Shulman, senior product marketing manager at RTI
"Being a formal member has opened new doors and allowed us
to leverage our resources."
- Paul Trevithick of SocialPhysics.org
The Thales Group
"As a worldwide leader in the areas of mission-critical, large-scale
software systems and open software architectures, Thales is proud
to be a new member of the Eclipse Foundation. Thales' Eclipse membership
is part of our policy of proactive support of open software technologies,
and we see Eclipse as an increasingly important player in the area
of open-source development platforms. Eclipse technology is already
part of the core foundation of Thales' integrated system and software
development environment used for major aerospace programmes. Thales
is also contributing to the Eclipse project WebTools and takes advantage
of Eclipse technologies for the deployment of its Model Driven Development
