Microsoft Buys Eclipse Widgetry

It's buying the Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear LLC

Eclipse Platform

Microsoft, which has been out wooing Eclipse developers lately, is buying the Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear LLC, which lets developers using the Eclipse IDE or operating on multiple operating systems, such as Unix, Linux and Mac OS X, to build applications with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.

Terms were not disclosed.

Microsoft said functionality from the Teamprise Client Suite, which offers an Eclipse plug-in, will be integrated into the Visual Studio product line beginning with Visual Studio 2010. Until then SourceGear will continue to sell and support the stuff.

According to Microsoft, Team Foundation Server, plus the Teamprise Client Suite technologies, will let developers use a single tool to overcome core development challenges, such as version control, work-item tracking, build management, process guidance and business intelligence, regardless of the core platform in use.
