I posted late last September about the Eclipse Communications Project (http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/jdev/2004-September/019305.html). I encouraged jdev members to participate, and emailed the project lead directly to promote XMPP.

I see today (http://www.eclipseplugincentral.com/News+article-sid-315-topic-3.html) the project has been approved and launched by the Eclipse Foundation, and is now called the Eclipse Communication Framework (ECF) (http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/).

"ECF is intended to support three types of plugin developers:
   1. Developers of communications applications (end-user visible complete applications).
   2. Developers of communications components (communications features designed to be reused among multiple applications)
   3. Communications infrastructure developers (providers of standard and/or proprietary communications protocols...e.g. SIP/SIMPLE, XMPP, JMS, JXTA, etc)"

I still see this as a good opportunity to promote Jabber/XMPP adoption. Baking XMPP into open source Eclipse plugins will make it readily available to Java developers who use the Eclipse IDE/platform.

ECF mailing list info is here (http://www.eclipse.org/mail/index.html).
