Eclipse The World's Most Widely-Used Platform

Function Point Modeler™ is the first Function Point Modelling tool that is based on the open source technology developed by the Eclipse Graphical Modelling Framework (GMF) project. Eclipse enabling multiple organizations to work together on this platform. The application on the Eclipse platform run on Linux, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Sun Solaris, Mac OS X and Windows-based systems. Most of the UML Modelling tool are implemented on this platform which enables smooth integration of the of various models.

What is Eclipse?

Eclipse is an open source community, whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle. A large and vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities, research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse platform.

An open source project begun by IBM, Eclipse is now supported by a wide range of suppliers and organisations, including Borland, Oracle, Computer Associates, Hewlett-Packard and the Object Management Group. In particular, the project wants to involve tool builders to provide plug-in tools for Eclipse IDEs. The idea of Eclipse is to provide an IDE that can constantly evolve and adapt, instead of being junked with each change in the focus of software development, forcing user organisations to retool, and developers to learn again from scratch.

Where did it originate?

The Eclipse Foundation was formed in 2001 by Borland, IBM, Merant, Rational, Red Hat, SuSE and others. It has since been joined by suppliers including Fujitsu, Hitachi, Sybase, SAP, Ericsson, Intel, Micro Focus and JBoss. In 2004, the foundation was reorganised as a not-for-profit corporation to ensure that the technology and source code would remain openly available and royalty-free.
