Eclipse Scout: Our contribution to the open source community
Why are we investing in the open source community with Eclipse Scout?
Greater investment protection, high software and service quality and with minimal dependence on individual manufacturers, with software based on Eclipse Scout we offer our customers the advantages of open source software (OSS). Since publication of the Java Scout framework under the Eclipse public license (EPL) in 2010, we have been part of the global Eclipse Foundation ecosystem and thereby receive feedback from countless software developers from around the world. The strict guidelines stipulated by the EPL ensure regular code reviews, checking of third-party licenses (complete compliance with intellectual property laws), as well as testing from a technical and functional perspective.
Why use Eclipse Scout?
When time-to-market is crucial and the software application should also remain sustainable in the future, then the Scout framework is the right choice. Eclipse Scout meets many of the recurring requirements placed upon modern business applications. Its strength is especially apparent when it comes to implementing the user interface. In addition to the client, the framework also covers the server, client-server communication and central security aspects.
The strengths of Scout truly pay off for the following challenges:
- Management and administration of data
- Organization of hierarchical, complex data
- Collaborative platforms with sophisticated rights administration
- Depiction of business-specific logic
- Modernization of legacy applications
