Skyway Software Joins Eclipse Foundation

Membership Supports Skyway Software's Commitment to Open Standards, Extensible Platforms, and Software Development Flexibility

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - Skyway Software, the experts in simplifying software delivery through model-based, collaborative tools and iterative delivery processes, announced today that it has joined the Eclipse Foundation, Inc., the leading open source software development community. Skyway Software joins the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider member to support the continued growth of Eclipse's development platform.

"We are pleased to welcome Skyway Software as a member of the Eclipse Foundation. Skyway Software's usage of several Eclipse frameworks and projects has enabled them to cost-effectively develop their runtime-independent end-to-end modeling capabilities," said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, Inc. "We look forward to Skyway's participation in the rapidly growing modeling ecosystem at Eclipse."

Skyway Visual Workspace includes Skyway Builder (a development tool to prototype, design, and build solutions) and Skyway Director (a deployment tool to generate and deploy solutions). Some of the world's largest enterprises rely on model-based Skyway Visual Workspace, and our iterative, enabling methodology Skyway Collaborative Software Delivery, to facilitate collaborative development and deployment of SOA-based JEE applications more quickly and more accurately than ever before.

"Today's announcement marks another milestone in Skyway Software's ongoing effort to simplify the software delivery process for our customers using open standards," said Jared Rodriguez, CTO and Co-Founder of Skyway Software. "The Eclipse and Skyway Software partnership is a great match since our Skyway Visual Workspace plug-in will rely extensively on the Eclipse Modeling Framework, the Eclipse Modeling Project, and the Data Tools Platform. And by doing so all within the Spring Framework, we facilitate a seamless blend of hand-coding and modeling to help enterprises deliver fast, accurate JEE solutions."

As a Gold Sponsor at EclipseCon2008, the official annual conference for Eclipse users, Skyway Software will demonstrate the Eclipse plug-in capabilities of Skyway Visual Workspace at its booth in the Skyway Playzone (the exhibit hall's foosball and basketball developer play stations). Read more at
