Eclipse is an open source community, whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the life cycle. The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects and helps cultivate both an open source community and an ecosystem of complementary products and services. The Eclipse community consists of individuals and organizations from a cross section of the software industry.
Java-based projects - Apache
The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process, an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users.
Java-based projects - XWiki
XWiki is a Java open source software development platform based on the wiki principles, under a LGPL license. In addition to being a full-featured wiki, it is also a second generation wiki allowing collaborative web applications to be written easily and quickly. On top of this platform several products are developed, targeted mainly on aiding enterprise-level needs.
Java-based projects – T Parsec
Thousand Parsec is a bunch of games based on a common framework for building turn based space empire building games. Some of the games, such as our first demo game MiniSec, are developed by the Thousand Parsec developers themselves. In the near future we hope that other developers will create their own games using Thousand Parsec framework.
