Eclipse Use Grows by More Than 90% in North America

Eclipse Use Grows by More Than 90% in North America

    New research from Evans Data Corp. has found that Eclipse, the open source Java IDE, is experiencing very strong growth in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) as well in North America. In APAC, the survey findings show a more than 70% increase in developers using Eclipse as their primary Java development environment. In EMEA that number has increased by more than 60% and in North America development to the IDE has increased by more than 90%.

    "Among the top three Java IDEs, Eclipse is the only one gaining market share in EMEA, APAC and North America," said Albion Butters, an analyst with Evans Data. "Eclipse looks like it may become a true open source killer app. We saw similar acceptance characteristics for MySQL in our Database Development Survey four months ago." Since IBM open sourced Eclipse in late 2001 the technology has fostered a strong and passionate developer community as well as strong corporate support from IBM, Borland, QNX Software Systems, RedHat, and Fujitsu, among others. Overall, Eclipse is the most popular Java IDE in North America and is showing strength against other, more established IDEs like Borland's JBuilder, which is still the most used Java IDE in EMEA.

    Other findings from the April 2004 survey of more than 400 developers working in EMEA:

  • Security continues to be a concern for EMEA developers. Breaches are happening to more and more respondents. A year ago 30% of respondents were hit more than twice; now that number is at 39%. This makes the security situation even more dire than in North America.

  • Windows XP grew to 33% of users (up from 28%), Windows 2000 experienced a substantial drop-off (currently at 31%, sharply down from 44%). By next year, the divergence will be even greater: 43% expect to write most of their code on Windows XP, compared to 15% on Win2k.

    Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. Steve Wilson, Citrix Vice President of Cloud,...
