IBM tightens knot with Eclipse | CNET News.com

IBM tightens knot with Eclipse | CNET News.com: "IBM is rewriting its Rational development tools to work more closely with Eclipse open-source software, the first phase in a Big Blue push to integrate its programming products.
Over the next year and a half, the company will rework the Rational tools to become fully integrated with Eclipse, IBM said on Monday. The move was announced in an update to the IBM Software Development Platform plan, which will use software developed by the Eclipse open-source group as the glue to meld IBM development products. "

That must be disconcerting to Microsoft-focused IBM Rational customers.
