The source code repository for this project has been moved to the Eclipse Equinox project.
The goal of the Eclipse Equinox Incubator is to experiment with techniques for broadening the range of Eclipse platform runtime configurations. For example, areas such as security, the use of Equinox on the server and Aspect weaving are prime candidates for investigation in the Incubator.
These issues do not severely impact the usefulness of Eclipse as a development tool platform but they do affect the use of Eclipse in more constrained environments (e.g., handheld devices, IT managed environments, mass-appeal applications, servers, etc.). The Incubator project will investigate such issues and develop approaches which are practical and applicable to the main Equinox code base.
