New Eclipse Project to Develop Open-Source Testing Platform

New Eclipse Project to Develop Open-Source Testing Platform
The Eclipse Foundation next month plans to announce a new open-source project to deliver an open platform for frameworks and services for test and performance tools used along the software development lifecycle.

According to foundation officials, the Eclipse Foundation will announce its Test and Performance Tools Platform Top Level Project at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco early next month. Intel Corp., an Eclipse member, will lead the project. The project will foster open-source collaboration in testing and other areas.

Essentially, the test and performance tools platform will provide an infrastructure upon which test and performance tools can be built. These tools include testing tools and tracing and profiling tools, as well as tools for logging, monitoring, tuning, analysis, autonomics and administration. In addition, the platform will include data collection services and user interfaces for tracing, executing test cases, and tracking logging and statistical behavior in local or remote execution environments, according to foundation officials.
