Helmi Technologies Joins Eclipse Foundation

'Our goal when developing Helmi's open source product,' said Jorden Woods, CEO of Helmi Technologies

"Our goal when developing Helmi's open source product," said Jorden Woods, CEO of Helmi Technologies in the U.S. "was to allow companies to leverage their development team's knowledge base and shorten the learning curve to maximize productivity." Woods was speaking as Helmo announced that it was joining the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider.

"We share the same vision as the Eclipse Foundation which is to enable developers to easily create derivative works from our Platform in an open source environment," continued Woods - whose company, Helmi Technologies, Inc, is the provider of the Open Source RIA Platform.

"We are excited to be joining Eclipse," Woods added.

Helmi enterprise and developer customers can now rest assured, he said, that integrating Helmi's AJAX-based Platform leverages existing skills and the familiar Eclipse development environment. Using the Eclipse environment and Helmi's Platform allows customers to rapidly create browser-independent, high-impact web applications, while cutting development time by over 50 percent.

"Companies such as Helmi play a vital role in the Eclipse Foundation," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director at Eclipse Foundation. "Helmi's technology and source code is now available to the Eclipse community. AJAX solutions are particularly in high demand and Helmi is offering Eclipse users an Ajax-based solution to rapidly and cost-effectively create browser-independent AJAX rich Internet applications."

The Helmi Open Source RIA Platform delivers on the promise of Web 2.0. For the first time, client- and server-side engineers can create high performance applications because they can use the same components and communicate effectively through an object-oriented framework.
