From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the open-source Eclipse Projects and helps cultivate both an open source community and an ecosystem of complementary products and services. It is considered a 'third generation'[1] open-source organisation.



In 2003–2004 the Eclipse Consortium, an unofficial consortium of fifty software industry vendors[2], founded The Eclipse Foundation, a not-for-profit legal entity to lead and develop Eclipse.

Strategic members

Strategic members also have a seat on the various Eclipse Councils providing input and influence over the themes and priorities of the Eclipse Ecosystem [3].

Other Members
