REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/13 -- Oracle (NASDAQ:
-- Oracle today announced that it has awarded Compatibility Testing
Scholarships to the Eclipse Foundation for the EclipseLink and Virgo
-- The Oracle Compatibility Testing Scholarship Program helps to ensure
that the Technology Compatibility Kits (TCK) for Oracle's Java
technology specifications, including support services, are available
and accessible to not-for-profit organizations, as well as colleges
-- The Eclipse Foundation will use the TCKs to test the EclipseLink and
Virgo technologies and ensure compatibility with Java Platform,
Enterprise Edition (Java EE).
-- The EclipseLink project delivers a comprehensive open-source Java
persistence solution addressing relational, XML and database web
services. EclipseLink serves as the reference implementation for
Java Persistence API (JPA) Specification, including the latest
Java Specification Request (JSR) 338, for JPA 2.1.
-- The Virgo Web Server from EclipseRT is a completely module-based,
lightweight Java application server for developing, deploying, and
servicing enterprise Java applications. One of the goals of the
Virgo project is to create a compliant implementation of the Java
EE Web Profile specification.
-- Java EE 7, the next generation of Java EE, is targeted for release in
the second quarter of 2013.
-- The Java EE 7 JSRs are being developed in a transparent manner through
the Java Community Process (JCP) by hundreds of engineers from over 30
organizations, including the Eclipse Foundation, with expert group
communications and working materials available publicly.
-- "Oracle recognizes the contributions that not-for-profit
organizations, such as the Eclipse Foundation, are making to both Java
technology specifications, and the rich ecosystem of open source
implementations of these specifications. We understand the importance
of ensuring Java compatibility, and we want to make sure that these
organizations have access to the resources they need to verify
compatibility with the latest Java platform releases," said Cameron
Purdy, vice president of Development, Oracle.
-- "It is important for the Eclipse Foundation to provide our community
with the tools they need to enhance developer productivity. As a key
contributor to EclipseLink and other projects, Oracle has been a
strong supporter of our efforts. Through the Oracle Compatibility
Testing Scholarship Program the Eclipse Foundation now has access to
the resources we need to achieve Java EE Web Profile compatibility
both for Java EE 6, as well as the forthcoming Java EE 7," said Mike
Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation.
