Eclipse has proven that highly modular software systems can be extremely powerful and effective. With the increase in component count however, comes an increase in management complexity. For example, configuring and managing the thousands of bundles that make up a modern software system is a daunting task. The lack of coherent strategies and mechanisms around components and open source consumption present business challenges as well-- managing hundreds of developers trying to manage their IDEs is downright scary from a business point of view. In this talk we detail the typical challenges facing individuals, developers and organizations when adopting Eclipse and open source and show how the broad suite of Yoxos technology addresses the key issues. We show how provisioning offerings from the free online Yoxos Eclipse Distribution to Yoxos Enterprise help individual developers and vast distributed teams create and deliver complex tool chains to suit the needs of their domain and customers. We also look at the software procurement process and how Yoxos SecureSource helps smooth the procurement path for open source components. Throughout the talk we highlight the many new and innovative features of the Yoxos suite and point to usecases in the tooling, application, server-side and embedded spaces. If you use Eclipse, Yoxos can help. Come find out how.
