Editor's Note

In this month’s newsletter, we’re taking a closer look at some of the exciting Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, and digital ledger technology (DLT) projects at the Eclipse Foundation and the relationships among them.

Before you read this month’s spotlight articles, be sure to check out our News section for updates on new projects and recent releases in the Eclipse community. We also highlight an Eclipse project that’s being used to model COVID-19 data and some new opportunities for community members to stay connected virtually.

As a reminder, the 2020 Jakarta EE Developer survey is open until April 30. Please take a few minutes to add your voice to the Java ecosystem’s leading technical survey.

Spotlight Articles

Our spotlight articles focus on three Eclipse community initiatives that solve real-world challenges developers face as they work to securely extend IoT applications to more people and devices:

  • Eclipse IoT Packages Project. Kai Hudalla describes the pre-integrated, open source stack for cloud to edge applications that’s being developed by the IoT and edge communities.
  • Eclipse Unified Identity and Eclipse Tangle EE Marketplaces Projects. Contributors from the IOTA Foundation and the Eclipse Foundation explain how the proposed Unified Identity and Tangle Marketplaces projects seek to foster industry adoption of the Unified Identity Protocol (UIP) and enable developers to build decentralized marketplaces on the IOTA network.
  • Eclipse ioFog 2.0. Frédéric Desbiens explores the role of an Edge Compute Network (ECN) and the new features in the Eclipse ioFog 2.0 release.

New Project Proposals

  • Eclipse LSP4MP - Language Server for Eclipse MicroProfile will provide core language support capabilities (such as code complete, diagnostics, quick fixes) to enable developers to easily and quickly develop cloud-native applications using MicroProfile APIs.
  • Eclipse Arrowhead consists of systems and services that are needed for anyone to design, implement and deploy Arrowhead-compliant System of Systems.
  • Eclipse JustJ provides fully-functional Java runtimes that can be redistributed by Eclipse Projects. 
  • Eclipse Unified Identity consists of several components including a high-level implementation of the UIP core, examples and documentation. 
  • Eclipse Jifa is a web application based on the Eclipse Memory Analyser Tooling (MAT) that provides HTTP services so that users can view the heap dump files analysis through a browser. 
  • Eclipse Tangle Marketplaces provides a foundation for developers to build decentralized marketplaces on the IOTA network, allowing them to prototype concepts and explore new decentralized business models.
