The Strength of Lotus Notes?

I have google alerts set up on various keywords, one of those includes eclipse. I was delighted to see an article this morning that gave some praise to the new Lotus Notes that would make an Eclipse developer happy:

And indeed this focus on collaboration and integration with the other products in IBM’s suite, as well as the way IT departments can integrate custom applications through the Eclipse framework, is Note’s biggest strength right now.

It’s pretty cool when the mention of Eclipse starts turning up in more mainstream news outlets like… now it’s back to reviewing patches

Final Notes Beta

When I’m not producing “Blair Witch Project” scary patches, I tend to follow the ins and outs of the Lotus community to see what they are doing with Eclipse. Well, recently IBM Lotus announced the last beta for the new Lotus Notes client that’s all built on Eclipse technology. I’ve been using the client internally for awhile now and always get giddy when I can launch Notes and get an OSGi console.

Why is this important for the Eclipse community? It will probably mark the largest deployment of Eclipse-based technology (definitely outside the developer space). This is a good sign that Eclipse is growing and has shed its image as only a tooling platform.

The only question is what’s next?
