Salesforce.com Joins Eclipse Foundation, Delivers Free AppExchange Toolkit for Eclipse

Toolkit Helps Developers Create On-Demand Applications for 'The Business Web'

Salesforce.com has announced it has joined the Eclipse Foundation and released a new AppExchange Toolkit for Eclipse. Available as a free download from the AppExchange Developer Network, the Toolkit provides developers with tools to customize, integrate and build on-demand applications on the AppExchange platform. ISVs and corporate IT organization developers alike can use the AppExchange Toolkit for Eclipse to create applications for use in existing Salesforce deployments or for sharing and distribution via the AppExchange.

Built on the popular Eclipse development platform framework, the Toolkit extends Eclipse beyond traditional software development and provides developers with a robust development, debugging and testing environment to create on-demand applications and mashups for the AppExchange.

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on providing an extensible platform for application development. Salesforce.com is joining the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider. As an Add-in Provider, salesforce.com will stay abreast of all the projects in the Eclipse open source community, and help shape the direction of Eclipse's support for on-demand application development. Other Add-In Providers to the Eclipse Foundation include Business Objects, iWay, Macromedia, Mercury, SAS, and webMethods.
