Huntington, N.Y., March 5, 2007 — BZ Media LLC today announced that attendance at Eclipse World 2007, the independent Eclipse conference for enterprise IT developers, is expected to exceed 800 – more than 20 percent larger than last year’s record.

EclipseWorld, owned and produced by BZ Media, attracted more than 600 attendees to its second annual conference, held in Cambridge, Mass., in September 2006. For 2007, EclipseWorld moves to a larger facility, the Hyatt Regency Reston, just outside of Washington, D.C. EclipseWorld 2007 will be held November 6-8.

Alan Zeichick, conference chairman for EclipseWorld 2007, said, “Eclipse has reached the tipping point: you’ll find Eclipse, and Eclipse-based tools, in most enterprise software-development departments. Whether you’re writing in Java, C++ or COBOL, or targeting Linux, Unix or Windows, the Eclipse platform is the de facto standard. And thanks to exciting new capabilities, such as rich client development using the Eclipse RCP tools and framework, enterprise reliance on Eclipse is only going to increase."

Helping enterprises make the most of Eclipse, and of the vast commercial Eclipse ecosystem is what EclipseWorld 2007 is all about. Classes will cover topics from more efficient programming using Eclipse-based tools, to improving software quality, enabling business intelligence, creating AJAX and Web 2.0 applications, to coding for a service oriented architecture (SOA).

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said, “The Eclipse platform is powerful, extensible and easy to use. BZ Media’s EclipseWorld 2007 will help enterprise IT professionals take the fullest advantage of the platform though its tutorials, technical classes and networking opportunities. EclipseWorld 2007 in Reston will be a wonderful opportunity to grow and inform the Eclipse community.”

Registration for EclipseWorld 2007 will open May 25, but before then, sign up for the notification list at Everyone who signs up for the notification list will receive a registration code good for a $50 discount on a EclipseWorld 2007 Full Event Passport.

EclipseWorld 2007 will have an exhibition hall, and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Companies interested in sponsorships are encouraged to contact Donna Esposito, events director, at +1-415-785-3419 or, for additional information about reaching more than 800 enterprise IT Eclipse tools buyers at EclipseWorld 2007.

BZ Media is an Associate Member of the Eclipse Foundation.
