Participation in the Eclipse Foundation is surging. The organization added 16 new members: Advantest Europe GmbH, Baloise Holding AG, Cirrus Link Solutions, Cloudbees, Codescoop Oy, Fujitsu, iJUG, Inductive Automation, Istanbul JUG, Karakun AG, Kynetics LLC, Liferay, Lightbend, London Java Community, Mettenmeier, Mindus, Mizuho International, Nanjing Glaway, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, RTD Embedded Technologies, Toyota, Tuev Sued Auto Services, Useopen Middleware and V2Com.
Many of the new members have expressed interest in being involved with Jakarta EE and IoT development. “Throughout the 14 year history of the Eclipse Foundation, our focus has been fostering successful open source projects using a member and community-driven process to enable commercial adoption,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “This is one of the most exciting periods in the Foundation’s history, particularly as the enterprise Java stack re-imagines itself for cloud-native use cases via Jakarta EE, and as commercial adoption of IoT continues to explode with Eclipse IoT projects at the center of this innovation.”
