Focus on Data Integration for the Enterprise
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- WebGain, Inc., a leading provider of e-business development environments and the award-winning TopLink(TM) data integration solutions, today announced that it has accepted an invitation from Eclipse.org to join its board of directors. Eclipse.org is an open-source consortium for developing a standard framework that enables developers to use different integrated development environments seamlessly. "At WebGain, we take our responsibility to participate in programs supporting streamlining applications to the enterprise very seriously. Creating a more unified Java community is important to our customers. Corporations need our industry to continuously improve products and provide complete solutions for their application development," stated Stephen DiFranco, executive vice president of marketing for WebGain. "WebGain was asked to join the Eclipse.org board of directors because of its position as a leading provider of application development solutions," said Skip McGaughey, chairman of the Eclipse.org board of directors. WebGain accepted the invitation to join Eclipse.org specifically to support and promote data integration for enterprise applications. Although TopLink, WebGain's data integration solution, will not be made an open source component of the Eclipse Platform, WebGain will provide guidance and direction on the value of data integration products as part of a complete end-to-end enterprise solution. "Eclipse.org will provide WebGain an amplified voice in our mission to encourage companies to use data integration products instead of creating custom connections between relational data to object applications," said DiFranco. Presently, WebGain does not have any plans to release Eclipse Platform compatible product offerings. "We will be working with our enterprise customers to find out which parts of Eclipse are important to their needs," said Earl Stahl, executive vice president of engineering and development at WebGain. Stahl will be the WebGain representative on the Eclipse.org board of directors.
