The Eiffel Struggle 1999

Awards for class libraries and applications in Eiffel

NICE is pleased to announce the results of the Eiffel Struggle 1999 competition of open source Eiffel projects.

Following the competition's tradition, entries have been granted gold, silver and browze awards. The table below lists the entries as they have been ranked by the judges.

The range of entries this year has been varied and impressive. All the contributions will be made available on the Eiffel Forum web site, and quite a few already have their own dedicated web pages.

I would like to thank the participants for their hard work, the judges for their time and our sponsors for making the competition possible.

The sponsors are:
