Metallect Makes Cross Application Logic Visibility a Reality for Eclipse Platform

New Plug-In Reduces Risk, Cost of Business Disruption; Provides Impact Analysis & Dependency Mapping

Metallect Corporation has announced the availability of a Metallect IQ Server plug-in for the Eclipse Platform. Developers working within Eclipse can now conduct impact analysis and dependency mapping of application logic across all applications and supporting databases with integrated access to IQ Server.

The announcement came on the floor of Sys-Con's 10th Annual SOA Web Services Edge Conference, where Metallect CEO Guy Hoffman will be presenting his thoughts on "What's MIA in SOA: How to properly move from current applications to SOA". Mr. Hoffman will outline the 5 step process to adopt SOA and to ensure governance today at 1:30pm ET.

Automatic visualization of impacts and potential impacts of an application change from within Eclipse, across applications, technologies and databases, can replace time-intensive and unreliable manual processes. This automation and visualization dramatically lowers the risk of business disruption and associated costs due to modifications to an existing business process.

Eclipse developers can view a demonstration of the new Eclipse plug-in using IQ Server on a variety of open-source projects on the company website, The new plug-in is also available for download from the website.

"Since its inception, Eclipse has strived to encourage the creation of a collaborative open-source community where developers have the flexibility that comes with working in an open eco-system," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "Metallect's announcement of its IQ Server plug-in is another great example of the innovative solutions available to developers using Eclipse".
