EclipseCon focuses on scripting

Dynamic scripting languages for Web application development will be the focus of the Eclipse Foundation's EclipseCon conference, which starts today in California.

InfoWorld says the open source tools organisation will update two projects pertaining to Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax). It will also revise the Dynamic Languages Toolkit (DLTK), which features frameworks and platforms to make it easier to use scripting languages such as Tcl, Python and Ruby.

The report says with the 0.7 release of DLTK, Eclipse will support Tcl. Version 1.0 of DLTK, due in June, will back Ruby and Python. DLTK provides facilities to build integrated development environments for scripting languages.
