IBM is proud to be among the founders of the Eclipse Foundation and the OSGi Alliance, and to be jointly sponsoring their events. Beginning in 1999, IBM was among the founding members of the OSGi Alliance, and in 2001, both IBM and Rational Software were founding members of the Eclipse consortium and the not-for-profit Eclipse Foundation.
Rational Software was acquired by IBM in 2003, and today IBM continues as a Strategic Member of the Eclipse Foundation, and of the OSGi Alliance. Eclipse open source projects and OSGi specifications continue to be core to dozens of IBM offerings from the IBM software brands -- Rational, WebSphere, Lotus, Tivoli, and Information Management. IBM Rational software provides an Eclipse and OSGi based software development platform that improves the speed, quality, and predictability of software projects.
This full life-cycle solution combines software engineering best practices, market-leading tools, and services.
