CA Joins Eclipse Foundation

The company is tapped to lead the group's open-source testing platform project.

Computer Associates International Inc. Monday announced that the company has joined the Eclipse Foundation and will begin contributing code and talent to the open-source application development tools platform.

Officials at the Islandia, N.Y., company said CA will contribute to the Eclipse TPTP (Test and Performance Tools Platform) Top-Level Project and has in fact been appointed as project lead for the TPTP project.

At a conference earlier this year, Sam Greenblatt, senior vice president and chief architect of the Linux Technology Group at CA, said the company would be joining the Eclipse Foundation and contributing to and gaining from the open-source platform.

In a statement, Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said: "We are delighted to have CA contribute to the success of the Eclipse Platform and the TPTP Project. The commitment of global companies like CA demonstrates the momentum behind our initiatives and importance of our work for the IT community."

The Eclipse TPTP Project is aimed at creating a test and performance tools platform that will provide an infrastructure upon which test and performance tools can be built, officials at the Eclipse Foundation said.

Prior collaboration between CA and the Eclipse organization has included CA integrating its AllFusion Harvest Change Manager enterprise software change and configuration management tool with Eclipse 3.0.
