Another sign in the Eclipse Zodiac

Libra Logo

The Eclipse Zodiac expands with one more sign. The Libra project arises next to the Gemini and Virgo runtime projects. This time it is about a project that will provide tools for the OSGi Enterprise specification, like development of Web Application Bundles and Persistent Bundles.

The Libra project has just passed successfully the Creation Review and is now being provisioned. The best source of information for the moment is the proposal document as well as the discussions in the forum.

Some of the initial committers are already preparing their initial contributions, so stay tuned for announcement about the first features delivered to the community. The new project will be also presented at EclipseCon 2011: Libra - New Tools at Eclipse for OSGi Enterprise Development
