SourceLabs Brings Self-Support to Eclipse Open Source Development Community

Simplifies Development and Deployment of Eclipse-Based Rich Java and Linux Applications

SourceLabs announced that its Self-Support Suite now supports the open source Eclipse development environment. SourceLabs’ automated tools and support services for Java and Linux developers, corporate IT professionals, and solution providers are an effective, on demand new way to more effectively support open source software development and operations. SourceLabs Self-Support tools dramatically reduce the complexity of enterprise Java and Linux application development and maintenance by bringing together in one bundle all the components developers need to create and deploy web applications using the Eclipse Foundation's open source development framework.

SourceLabs Self-Support Tools are customized to the Eclipse environment, taking into account any dependencies to provide accelerated troubleshooting services. SourceLabs’ discovery technologies empower all enterprises using OSS to achieve the greatest benefits by anonymously sharing problems, identifying issues and ranking the quality of field-tested solutions to resolve problems in just minutes. The addition of the Eclipse environment to SourceLabs’ information repository expands what is already the largest such knowledge resource available, with numerous Linux and Java projects already included.

“Now Eclipse developers have reliable way to instantly access the latest information and analytical tools for supporting their Eclipse-driven applications,” said Byron Sebastian, CEO and Founder of SourceLabs. “Our Self-Support system gives users the most effective way to quickly and continually adapt to today's rapidly changing Eclipse software and their own business requirements.”

The Eclipse addition expands an already wide array of Java projects covered by the Suite, including the Spring Framework, Hibernate, Apache Struts, Apache Tomcat, and Apache Axis. SourceLabs Self-Support Tools represent a discovery, navigation and ranking the most currently available information of open source software. An Intelligence Engine gathers information from systems and across the growing Eclipse ecosystem. Indexing, managing, and storing the data, SourceLabs matches data against a one-of-a-kind Information Repository and combines advanced pattern matching and predictive analysis algorithms to automate troubleshooting, reduce routine tasks from days to minutes, and uses predictive analysis to flag potential problems before they impact systems or designs.

The Eclipse platform is supported by the open source community and comprised of software projects that are focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. Eclipse provides extensible tools and frameworks that span the software development lifecycle, including support for modeling, language development environments for Java, C/C++ and others, testing and performance, business intelligence, rich client applications and embedded development. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse Platform.
