Oracle Gives Hudson to Eclipse

Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) has faced intense scrutiny this year over its handling of multiple open source projects. In the case of the Hudson continuous integration system for Java, members of the community forked the project after disagreeing with Oracle.

Oracle remains committed to Hudson and today announced that it was moving the project to the open source Eclipse Foundation. At Eclipse, Hudson development will continue in a multi-stakeholder, open environment.

"We're still totally committed to Hudson, we are still behind it as ever," Ted Farrell, chief architect and senior vice president, Tools and Middleware at Oracle told InternetNews.com. "This move will help grow the community and relieve any concerns that people have about it being an Oracle-owned project. We welcome all people that want to contribute and have their voices heard."
