The g-Eclipse project delivers the g-Eclipse framework which includes the core middleware-independent functionality without connectors to a specific middleware and an exemplary implementation for AWS. Implementations for other middlewares are available from external sources either from the g-Eclipse team itself or by other teams.
While the goal of g-Eclipse 1.0 is the full backward compatibility to g-Eclipse 0.5 there will be changes in the model and in the project layout that require a new setup and a new project creation. All of those major changes they will be announced in the new and noteworthy of the release and discussed on the developers mailing list.
g-Eclipse bundles are internationalized. The g-Eclipse team provides an English version by default.
g-Eclipse runs on Windows 32-bit, Linux 32-bit and 64-bit, Mac OSX, is tested by the team on those platforms and requires a JVM 1.5 or higher.
