Eclipse is a project originally created by IBM in November 2001 that later became a not-for-profit foundation in January 2004. Today, the Eclipse foundation provides four services to its community: 1) IT infrastructure, 2) IP management, 3) development process, and 4) ecosystem development. Its products include Eclipse ADT (Ada Development Toolkit), which is a free and open source multi-language software development environment with an IDE and plug-in system. Although most commonly used with developing Java applications it can also be used with other programming languages such as Ada, C, C++, COBOL, Perl, PHP, and others.
