Aldon Accepts Eclipse Membership Invitation

Aldon Accepts Eclipse Membership Invitation

Aldon, a respected provider of enterprise application lifetime management tools with over 25 year's experience, today announced its membership with the Eclipse Foundation, and the Eclipse Add-In-Provider and Membership At Large communities, as well. The company creates Eclipse plug-ins, and plug-ins for several releases of IBM's WebSphere.

Aldon's years of experience in lifecycle automation and change management, fits Eclipse's open architecture. Daniel Magid, president and CEO of Telelogic, said, "Aldon's successful track record of providing enterprise-wide change management spanning multiple architectures and platforms combined with the open architecture and powerful functionality of the Eclipse Platform will significantly expand the choices and means available to users for managing application development across entire organizations."

Aldon's Lifecycle Manager and it its Lifecycle Manager for iSeries plug-ins support complex multi tier, Web-centric and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). Also, the tools work in Windows, UNIX, Linux, OpenVMS, z/OS, i5OS and OS/400 operating environments.

Since Aldon is used as an Eclipse Team Repository, users can choose any Eclipse Team Repository compatible IDE to use Aldon. These capabilities bring more options and flexibility to a broad range of Aldon customers. The plug-ins also support major programming languages and IDE perspectives such as Java, C#, C++, COBOL, the Remote Systems Explorer and Java Package Explorer.

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said expressively, "The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to welcome Aldon as a member. Aldon and Eclipse recognize that change management solutions are integral to applying best practices to every organization's IT architecture. Aldon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Foundation, and we're confident that we'll see a strengthening of the Eclipse ecosystem as a result. We're happy to have Aldon on board."

Analysts, who commented on Aldon's new membership inclusions, noted that Eclipse has grown as a platform, and is gaining momentum. "The Eclipse Foundation has gained impetus since it became an independent not-for-profit organization early this year, and the list of Eclipse Add-In providers continues to grow," said Melissa Webster, research director at IDC. "Broad-based participation from leading and innovative software vendors will continue to be key to the success of Eclipse in the future."

The Eclipse Foundation has gained impetus since it became an independent not-for-profit organization early this year, and the list of Eclipse Add-In providers continues to grow

Just how many members are we talking about here? And are all tied in to WebSphere or is Eclipse genuinely now free of IBM dominance?

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
