The Eclipse Foundation does a great job with its case studies to see how Eclipse technology is used in the real world. There is a new case study that is of particular interest to me because it involves Equinox and ski lifts.
I hope people are beginning to understand that Eclipse is no longer about just IDEs and tooling, there is a lot of people out there using Eclipse as a runtime technology. The Eclipse Runtime (RT) project will help to formalize things even more.
On a side note, I’d probably be willing to install Eclipse technology at Whistler mountain for room, board and a ski pass 🙂
