Borland President Provides Sneak Preview Of Java Integrated Development Environment

Borland Showcases New Modeling Project For Eclipse Platform

Tod Nielsen, president and CEO, Borland Software Corporation, the provider for Software Delivery Optimisation (SDO), gave the keynote address at EclipseCon 2006, the technical and user conference focusing on the power of the Eclipse platform, when it opened at the Santa Clara Convention Centre in Santa Clara, California. At EclipseCon 2006, Borland also provided an introduction to the new Eclipse Graphical Modelling Framework (GMF) and gave a sneak preview of its anticipated Eclipse-based Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE) codenamed "Project Peloton".

In a keynote, entitled "Eclipse Lessons for Enterprise Development," Nielsen explained his view of how open source and Eclipse are changing the fundamental way software is developed, and how Borland and others are applying lessons from the open source community within the world of commercial software.

"The Eclipse Foundation has grown and flourished due to outstanding contributors like Borland Software," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "We're very pleased with their contributions to the Eclipse community, such as the Graphical Modelling Framework project, as well as how they're leveraging the Eclipse framework within their own Application Lifecycle Management and IDE offerings."

Project Peloton combines Borland's extensive experience building award-winning IDEs with Eclipse technologies to provide a rich user experience with two-way EJB and Web Services designers, collaborative features similar to JBuilder 2006's peer-to-peer capabilities, among others.

At the conference, Borland also teamed up with engineers from IBM Rational to provide an introduction and tutorial of the Graphical Modelling Framework project, a new project within Eclipse that provides a generative component and runtime infrastructure for developing graphical editors based on Eclipse's EMF and GEF projects.
