Eclipse has evolved from a tooling platform to a general purpose, Equinox OSGi-based application platform running in a wide variety of software and hardware contexts. A significant set of established and new Eclipse projects are providing services for application developers - AJAX, bundles, communication, ...., O/R, persistence, SOA and more. This talk surveys the runtime technology available today and introduces the Eclipse RT top-level project as a new home for runtime technology at Eclipse.org. We present and discuss the goals of providing high quality runtime components based on the Equinox framework and OSGi in the context of the Eclipse RT project and the larger Equinox community.

Jeff McAffer leads the Eclipse Equinox OSGi, RCP and Orbit teams and is the founder of Code 9. He is one of the architects of the Eclipse Platform and a co-author of The Eclipse Rich Client Platform (Addison-Wesley). Jeff is also a member of the Eclipse Project PMC, the Tools Project PMC, the Eclipse Architecture Council and the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors. Jeff is currently interested all aspects of Eclipse componentry from designing, developing and building bundles to deploying, installing and ultimately running them. Previous lives include being a Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM, work in distributed/parallel OO computing (Server Smalltalk, massively parallel Smalltalk, etc) as well as expert systems, meta-level architectures and a PhD at the University of Tokyo.

Jochen Krause has been involved with Eclipse since 2002 and represents Innoopract on the Eclipse Board of Directors. He is the project lead for the Eclipse RAP project. At Innoopract, a recognized specialist in Eclipse distribution and web application development, he is responsible for strategy and product development. He has driven the adoption of Eclipse as the foundation of all of Innoopracts product offerings. By supporting Fortune 500 companies engaging with Eclipse technology he gained a broad understanding of the requirements and needs of the Eclipse enterprise market.
