What isn’t going to the cloud these days? Perhaps it only follows then that Web development, the assembly of applications that run in the cloud, should itself find a home in the cloud.
In that spirit the Eclipse Foundation offers Orion, a new code base, accessible through a browser, that looks to match “the idioms of the Web rather than the desktop.”
“Orion is a brand new, browser-based open tool integration platform which is entirely focused on developing for the Web, in the Web,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation.
The new Web-based development platform represents a significant shift for Eclipse, which has traditionally focused on the desktop development environment. Developer.com takes a look.
