e4 is the community effort for building the next generation of the Eclipse Platform. The project has three principal aims:

  • Simplify the Eclipse programming model: This will reduce development and maintenance costs and enable a larger developer community to leverage the platform in their own Eclipse-based applications.
  • Enable the platform for use on emerging web-based runtime technologies: This will ensure the platform remains a compelling and viable application framework in a rapidly changing web technology landscape, and it will allow e4-based applications to leverage web technologies, while remaining insulated from specific technology choices that may quickly become obsolete.
  • Broaden participation in development of the platform: This reduces the risks associated with building on a platform largely funded from a single source. Having a large and diverse group of commercial backers, will ensure the platform remains vibrant and viable over the long term.

Please refer to the project proposal for more information, including the initial list of committers. Also of interest are the e4 project summary page and the project plan.
