BEA takes seat on open source standards board

BEA Systems has joined the board of the Eclipse Foundation, an organisation that promotes technical standards for open source technology.

BEA said its involvement would help drive the convergence of Java-based technology in web services and other areas.

The Eclipse platform allows developers and suppliers to produce applications and tools that will work with a wide variety of third-party systems.

As a board member, BEA will lead the foundation’s Web Tools Platform (WTP) project. BEA is also proposing a new language development tools project, and is merging its open source AspectWerkz project with the Eclipse AspectJ project.

The WTP project will develop software tools to support J2EE and web-enabled application development.

BEA plans to incorporate WTP capabilities into future releases of its BEA WebLogic Workshop integrated development environment.

"With plans to converge important elements of BEA technology with the Eclipse platform, BEA is helping to realise its goal to advance and strengthen the Java community," said Mike Milinkovich, Eclipse Foundation director.
