During RedMonk’s Unconference at JavaOne this year, I had the change pull aside Mik Kersten and Ian Skerrett for a little conversation about what it’s like to be a commercial company (TaskTop) operating in the Eclipse ecosystem. A large part of Eclipse’s mission is to build out the open source foundation for a commercial ecosystem and I’m always curios how that works out – for example, I ask how projects draw the line between what’s part of Eclipse proper and what’s commercial. Also, I ask Ian how the Eclipse Equinox stuff has been going (though it’s only 6 weeks since announcing, as he points out): check out his post on p2 as well. Finally, we talk about OSGi in Glassfish.

Disclaimer: Eclipse is a client, as is Sun.
