Sun Passes On Eclipse

Sun Microsystems has decided against joining the board of directors of the Eclipse open-source Java-tool project. Sun had been considering the move for several months. IBM started Eclipse two years ago after the vendor developed an internal workbench into which Java software tools could be plugged. Many members of the Java community viewed Eclipse as a tool platform that was competitive with Sun's own NetBeans and Forte tools, now rolled into the Sun Java Studio. Sun's decision to remain outside the Eclipse project "was not made lightly," says Joe Keller, VP of marketing for Java Web services, adding that common ground that would allow Sun "an equitable share in mutual development" could not be found.
