Eclipse is ending several SOA projects due to lack of interest. Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF), started in 2005 to solve integration problems of application lifecycle management (ALM) for SOA developments, is gone. They tried to re-invent themsevles as a mashup provider, but for that, use sMash (projectzero) -- free from IBM. Eclipse will also end the STP Service Creation (STP-SC) sub-project designed to provide tool integration for SOA developers and the SOA System (STP-SOAS) set out to define developer APIs. As we often say, using open source projects is a dangerous game. Go with a prime vendor (Sonic, IBM, Oracle) who have enterprise quality products and support.
