Sun drops bid to join Eclipse

by Volker Weber

Ending several months of negotiations, Sun Microsystems has decided not to join the Eclipse open-source tools effort backed by rival IBM.

In addition to dropping the plan to join Eclipse, Sun said Wednesday that it will no longer try to merge the Sun-sponsored NetBeans.org open-source Java tools project with Eclipse. The Eclipse open-source project, founded by IBM in 2001, is an IBM-owned consortium which has gained the membership of several development tools companies over the past year.
