E4/Renaming Eclipse RCP
It's possible that Eclipse RCP may be renamed and rebranded as part of the e4 effort. Comments related to this should be added to bug 277947. This page has been created to display the suggested names in a single place. It can be hard to dig through the Bugzilla comments to find them.
First here are a list of name "seeds", or concepts that may be used to generate names. It's not a requirement that a name reference one of these concepts, but it would be nice.
- Modular UI
- UI Framework
- Kernel (for Eclipse)
- Organic modularity (bees vs blocks)
- Flexibility (multiple technologies/multiple deployments)
Here is the list of names suggested so far. They are presented in the order they were suggested.
|Ikebana||Roman Porotnikov||Japanese flower arrangment|
|Selene||Guillaume (on blog)||Goddess of the moon|
|Optics (Optix)||Patrick Paulin|
|Descarte||Patrick Paulin||Cartesian projection (perspectives), kind of a stretch|
|Lumen||Patrick Paulin||Measure of light|
|Candela (Kandela)||Patrick Paulin||Measure of light|
|Shoji||Patrick Paulin||Japanese screen room dividers, kind of like a Japanese "Windows"|
|Aurora||Fabian Steeg||http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_(astronomy), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_(mythology)|
|Gravity||Krzysztof Kowalczyk||...to keep things together ;)|
|Particle(s)||Krzysztof Kowalczyk||Building blocks - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elementary_particle|
|Mobi||Daniel||Modular Built userInterface|
|Eclipse Platform||Francesco Guidieri||"Eclipse" should be part of the name (different from "Eclipse IDE")|
|Eclipse Modulo||Vincenzo Caselli|
|Eclipse Bundle Weaver||Vincenzo Caselli|
|Eclipse Building Bricks||Vincenzo Caselli|
|Eclipse Jupiter System (EJS)||Jan Kohnert||
Jupiter is the planet with the most moons inside our solar system. Jupiter together with its moons is known as Jupiter System. There’re two strong relations to Eclipse RCP. First the Galilean moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. These moons names are also names of past major Eclipse releases (3.x). Each of that past releases introduces important new techniques and specifications that for us today affect your meaning of Eclipse RCP. Second if you follow this document the name should honour some ‘seeds’ or concepts. There’re four strong technical points: Modular UI, Components, UI Framework and Kernel. Each point could be translated into one of the Galilean moons. The Galilean moons are the biggest moons of Jupiter, but by far not all. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moons_of_Jupiter). In fact Jupiter has 63 confirmed moons. The diversity of the Eclipse RCP can be demonstrated by this analogy.
