Exadel Submits ''Enterprise Component Framework Project'' to Eclipse Foundation; Open Source Project to Provide Comprehensive Platform for Building Server Applications in Java


SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- March 22, 2006 -- Exadel, Inc., a leading provider of software, services, and support that enable companies to create mission-critical business applications based on open source and Java(TM) technologies, today announced its proposal to the Eclipse Foundation for an Enterprise Component Framework project, which would create an end-to-end business application development platform based on Eclipse.

The Enterprise Component Framework Project's goal is to create a comprehensive, component-based model that will give enterprise application development teams an unprecedented level of flexibility to build business applications. By taking a component-based approach to enterprise application development, the project will allow enterprise developers to create and re-use enterprise components without targeting any specific environment, such as J2EE or J2SE, resulting in a new breed of enterprise components that can run both on server or client sides.

"We are very pleased that Exadel has brought forth the Enterprise Component Framework proposal," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "It is an excellent example of the innovation that is occurring in the Eclipse community and specifically on the Equinox OSGi based framework."


Decreasing both the cost and time of enterprise application development, application development teams can tap the Enterprise Component Framework to assemble and reassemble software components in new and flexible configurations. The project will also allow developers to incrementally acquire and install software components, and conversely, to decouple and/or distribute development to outside entities, giving organizations a new level of flexibility, reusability and adaptability over their software development process.

The new project also includes a number of capabilities that are designed to broaden and advance the Eclipse development ecosystem including:

-- Leverages the Eclipse implementation of OSGi.org specification -- using Equinox as a component container

-- Components and services are assembled with loose coupling and dynamic re-coupling

-- Enables the dynamic discovery and availability for business components and services running inside the same component container

-- Service-based approach is applied both inside and outside of the application

-- Includes a number of standard optional services: logging, configuration, Tomcat, JNDI, JMS, JDBC, persistence (Hibernate), Spring, JSF, JTA, user authentication and authorization, preferences, Jasper reporting, Facelets, Scheduler, and many others

-- Includes a toolset for component development and a repository for component sharing

Business developers are encouraged to participate and give feedback by joining the project. A more detailed summary of the Enterprise Component Platform is available at: http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/ecp/

"Software components and their capabilities are the key technologies for addressing the increasing rate of change and need for speed, flexibility, and adaptability demanded in today's software development organizations," said Fima Katz, founder and CEO, Exadel. "Exadel's proposal to the Eclipse Foundation for an open source Enterprise Component Framework could completely transform the way that business applications are developed."
