General Boilerplate

For press releases or other public relations materials that require a standard description of Eclipse, the following template can be used:

About the Eclipse Foundation

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. Eclipse provides extensible tools and frameworks that span the software development lifecycle, including support for modeling, language development environments for Java, C/C++, PHP and others, testing and performance, business intelligence, rich client applications and embedded development. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse Platform.

The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects. Full details of Eclipse and the Eclipse Foundation are available at www.eclipse.org.

For press releases where a tag is required, use:

Tag: an open source community committed to implementation of a universal development platform.


Different styles, file formats, and sizes of the Eclipse logo are available from eclipse.org. Note that the PMS colour listed for the 2-colour logo, 187-2, is a process (4-colour, CMYK) colour, not a matte colour.
