OTTAWA, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- QNX Software Systems, the
company leading the C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) project on behalf of the
Eclipse Foundation, today announced the development objectives set by the
contributing members at the CDT Contributors Summit held last month.
The CDT team agreed upon several priorities for the next release of the
CDT code base, including improved build management and debugging. A new
indexer, called the Persisted Document Object Model (PDOM), will also be
developed to improve system performance. The group will also work on making it
easier for vendors to build commercial releases based on the CDT framework
through finer grained componentization and more concise API documentation.
The conference accomplished the important goal of fostering interaction
between the CDT and other Eclipse projects. Representatives from the Tools
Platform Device project, the Device Software Development Platform (DSDP)
project, as well as the Photran and Parallel Tools projects also discussed
integrations with the CDT to enable easier third-party integration and tool
migration between projects.
Over 20 companies participated in the three-day conference, representing
the full ecosystem of C/C++ development tool stakeholders, particularly for
the embedded and Linux development communities. Commercial OS and tool
vendors, end-users, and third party "plug-in" or valued-added partners were in
attendance, and included representatives from across North America and Europe.
"The CDT project is maturing, and the participation of such a wide cross-
section of companies at the conference is a testament to the importance CDT
plays in development systems for vendors and users of tools alike," said Doug
Schaefer, project leader for the CDT. "We look forward to continued success in
delivering a universal development platform for C and C++ tooling."
Companies in attendance at the CDT Contributors Summit included Altera,
Cisco, ENEA, Ericsson, Etnua, Freescale, IBM, Innoopract, Intel, Los Alamos,
Mentor Graphics, Montavista, Nokia, QNX Software Systems, Siemens, Symbian,
Texas Instruments, Tensilica, UIUC, and Wind River.
Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on
providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for
building software. Eclipse provides extensible tools and frameworks that span
the software development lifecycle, including support for modeling, language
development environments for Java, C/C++ and others, testing and performance,
business intelligence, rich client applications, and embedded development. A
large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups,
universities and research institutions, and individuals extend, complement,
and support the Eclipse Platform.
