Michael Cote on Eclipse Europa

July 5, 2007

Michael Cote over at Redmonk has quite a good article on the Eclipse Europa release. Interesting in the light of my previous post that he talks about Eclipse developers starting to become a fully fledged category like Java developers and Microsoft developers. However, he does get some things very wrong, like describing Borland/Codegear as one of “the first to dive into the Eclipse platform”. They were so not one of the first, and they are now playing catch up. In contrast, Cape Clear was an early adopter, and the maturity of our tools reflects our considered and considerable investment in building on Eclipse. He mentions the ongoing battle between JSR 277 and OSGi, which Eclipse provides excellent tools for, being built on an OSGi core.
