The Eclipse Board of Directors named Mike Milinkovich executive director of Eclipse Foundation, effective June 1. Milinkovich previously served as vice president of OracleAS Technical Services at Oracle Corp.

Initial priorities for the new executive director will include:

  • Building the Foundation’s membership and expanding the ecosystem of users and contributors;

  • Ensuring successful launch of the Eclipse 3.0 release in early summer 2004;

  • Establishing a solid base for the new open WebTools project, which extends Eclipse to server-side Java; and

  • Forming the Eclipse Management Organization and supervising the requirements, planning and architecture councils.

"I see my role as broadening the Eclipse open-source project and continuing the rapid growth of the Eclipse ecosystem," says Milinkovich. "It is my goal that Eclipse continues to be a focal point for open-source innovation in the software industry."

Eclipse Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization originally formed to handle IBM’s release of the Eclipse platform into open source. The foundation defines Eclipse technology as a universal, royalty-free development platform that gives developers freedom of choice in a multi-language, multi-platform, multi-vendor environment.
