Azure gets eclipsed

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

Microsoft continues its push to make its proposed Azure cloud plat form palatable to developers beyond the Windows realm and an embrace of Eclipse is bound to do that. 

Toward that end, Microsoft signed two proxies–Tasktop Technologies and Soyatec– to help make the Eclipse software development platform Azure friendly. (Or is it the other way around?) Anyway, the goal is to equip Eclipse to work with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 features.

Part of the deal is to develop updates to the Eclipse IDE so that it can incorporate new Win 7 and WS 2008 R2 features. Another is a planned open source plug-in to let PHP developers use Eclipse to create Web apps that would run in Azure. Also on tap: a Windows Azure SDC  for Java.
