Microsoft Piggybacks on Eclipse

A release candidate of Eclipse4SL has arrived

A release candidate of Eclipse4SL has arrived.

That’s the open source plug-in Microsoft commissioned from Eclipse Foundation member Soyatec, a French-based “open solutions” company, so cross-platform Silverlight-based rich Internet applications can be built with the famed open source Eclipse IDE and make use of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform.

Microsoft (whose Silverlight supremo, Scott Guthrie, is pictured below) says it will make for better interoperability between Silverlight and Java investments in web sites and web services.

Soyatec is releasing Eclipse4SL under the Eclipse Public License 1.0 on SourceForge and has submitted the thing to the Eclipse Foundation as an open Eclipse project.

With Eclipse4SL, Microsoft says developers can use pure Eclipse project & resource management or Visual Studio. A project explorer is also available to manage the project resources.
