This is achieved via ALF (Application Lifecycle Framework) interoperability framework for software development supported by Serena, IBM, SAP, Oracle and a wide range of other vendors. Refer to http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/eclipse-almiff/.

This is a critical and fundament capability in an IT Governance solution as it needs to have the ability to connect to and manage a wide range of application and middleware technologies both now and into the future.
