Read a full text transcript of the podcast. 

As part of my series of sponsored BriefingsDirect podcasts, I recently interviewed Wall Street's Brent Williams, a senior analyst at KeyBanc Capital Markets, on how the Eclipse Foundation has had a profound effect on Java software development. The question is: Is Eclipse a one-hit wonder or a harginger of a vastly different software development climate, with no turning back?

Eclipse has surged in popularity for the past three years, and is on the cutting edge in de facto standards for development environments for major Java software projects, particularly among software companies themselves. While Eclipse started out as an integrated development environment (IDE), it's branching out into some other areas, including a rich client platform and SOA, to offer the best of both worlds in terms of controlled and profitable commercial development, and the viral and lower-cost development of the open source community approach.

Feel free to peruse a full transcript of the discussion here. And/or have a listen as analysts Dana Gardner and Brent Williams dig into the technology, business, and economic impacts of the "Eclipse Effect." Podcast sponsor: Eclipse Foundation.
