Part of an ongoing
initiative to make its products more open, Microsoft Corp. today announced at
the Eclipse Summit Europe new solutions that help developers using the Eclipse
platform take advantage of the new features in Windows 7 and Window Server
2008 R2, and reinforce Java and PHP interoperability with Windows Azure and
Microsoft Silverlight. Microsoft worked with open source companies, Tasktop
Technologies Inc. from Canada for Windows 7 and Window Server 2008 R2, and
Soyatec from France for Windows Azure and Silverlight, to provide greater
choice and opportunities for developers working in heterogeneous computing
environments and use a mix of Microsoft and open source technologies.

Eclipse on Windows 7: A New Generation of Interoperability
Recognizing the interoperability needs of developers as they program in
different languages, Microsoft and Tasktop Technologies, a leading
Eclipse-based solution provider, have initiated a joint project to enhance the
overall developer experience of Eclipse on Windows 7, the next-generation
Windows platform released for general availability last week. The work will
consist of developing updates to the Eclipse integrated development
environment (IDE) that will incorporate new features available in Windows 7
and Window Server 2008 R2, ensuring that the improved productivity and user
experience of Windows 7 will be available to developers using the Eclipse IDE,
as well as to desktop applications built on the Eclipse platform.
