Explore Our Working Groups

Eclipse Working Groups allow organizations to combine the best practices of open source development with a set of services required for open innovation, enabling organizations to foster industry collaborations. Eclipse Working Groups also provide a vendor-neutral governance structure that allows organizations to freely collaborate on new technology development.

Each individual Eclipse Working Group has a charter, a website and a Working Group Participation agreement (WGPA).

Capella IC

The Capella Industry Consortium is dedicated to developing the ecosystem around the Capella project with vendor-neutral and open governance. Capella is an open Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) solution which offers methodological guidance, intuitive model editing, and viewing capabilities for Systems, Software, and Hardware Architects. The Capella IC provides its members with a place to foster collaborations, share investment and best practices and leverage open innovation to co-develop new MBSE capabilities.



The Eclipse Edge Working Group drives the evolution and broad adoption of Edge Computing-related technologies. This Working Group provides varied services including vendor-neutral marketing to the Eclipse Edge ecosystem and defines licensing and intellectual property flows that encourage the community to participate and collaborate. The community operates on a sustainable basis as a result of the funding model established and driven by Eclipse Edge.



The GEMOC Research Consortium is an open and collaborative initiative which supports the development, coordination, and dissemination of the research efforts on the use and globalization of modeling languages. GEMOC develops techniques, frameworks, and environments to facilitate the creation, integration, and automated processing of heterogeneous modeling languages.


Internet of Things

With over 40 industry-leading member companies, more than 35 IoT projects, and 350+ contributors, the Eclipse IoT Working Group is the preeminent open source community for commercial-grade IoT innovation. This initiative enables collaboration on the development of open source implementations of IoT standards and protocols, frameworks and services that will be used by IoT solutions, and tools for IoT developers.


Jakarta EE

The Jakarta EE Working Group enables Java ecosystem players to collaborate on advancing Java EE and Jakarta EE to support moving mission-critical applications and workloads to the cloud. This initiative focuses on cultivating the business interests associated with Eclipse Enterprise for Java (EE4J) technologies, which includes managing the specifications process related to EE4J, and the Jakarta EE brand.



The LocationTech Working Group is dedicated to developing advanced location-aware technologies by providing a collaborative environment for stakeholders to jointly develop Big Geospatial Data processing and visualization components, tools, and frameworks. LocationTech manages the quality and maturity of tools and components and establishes sustainable commercial services and ecosystems around them.



The openMDM Working Group fosters and supports an open, collaborative and innovative ecosystem by providing tools and systems, qualification kits and adapters for standardized and vendor-agnostic measurement data management in accordance with the ASAM Open Data Services (ODS) standard. The openMDM framework facilitates the further improvement and international distribution of openMDM®.



The openPASS Working Group promotes a collaborative and innovative ecosystem by offering tools, systems, and adapters for a standardized, openly-available and vendor-neutral platform for traffic scenario simulation. Together with members like BMW, Daimler, and Volkswagen Group of America, openPASS develops core frameworks and modules for the safety assessment of driving assistance and automated driving systems.



The OS.bea Working Group fosters and supports an open, collaborative, and innovative ecosystem by providing tools, systems, and adapters for the standardized, openly-available, and vendor-neutral Open Standard Business Platform (OSBP). This initiative helps support OS.bea-related Eclipse projects that develop related software components and provides the resources for managing their quality and maturity throughout the components’ lifecycle.



The Science Working Group represents a collaborative effort involving industry, academia, and government with the purpose of developing reusable open source software for scientific research. This Working Group seeks to create a set of tools and frameworks to help accelerate scientific research while enabling a collaborative approach to producing technologies used for the interdisciplinary analysis of scientific data.



The Eclipse Sparkplug Working Group seeks to drive the evolution and broad adoption of the Eclipse Sparkplug protocol and related technologies that enable the creation of open, collaborative, and interoperable Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions. Eclipse Sparkplug promotes the definition of technical specifications and associated implementations that rationalize access to industrial data, improve the interoperability and scalability of IIoT solutions, and provide an overall framework for supporting Industry 4.0.
