Eclipse’s Hyades Project Will Bring Open Test and Performance Tools

Eclipse’s Hyades Project Will Bring Open Test and Performance Tools

The Eclipse Foundation announced the creation of an open-development platform that will be used to test frameworks and services. With this information companies will be able to maximize their product's potential. A user interface for tracing execution behavior in local or remote areas is included, along with a data collections service.

Intel has given resources to the project called Hyades. Specifically, Intel is leading the development of the core interoperability layer through the Hyades Core Platform as the project is known.

"The involvement of Intel and other significant companies will ensure wider adoption of the open Hyades Core Platform as consensus architecture for innovative value-added products," said Dr Mike Norman, CEO of Scapa Technologies, who led the original Hyades project and now leads the Hyades Testing project. "For example, Intel will drive the adoption of the infrastructure to enable developers to harness the full power of Intel processors for applications."

Intel's role expands the scope of the Eclipse Hyades project, past the initial intention for testing systems. Tyler Thessin, engineering manager for Intel Software Development Products and lead of the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Project Management Committee said, "We are excited to contribute to the advancement that this Eclipse open-source initiative brings to the industry in the area of test and performance tooling. This infrastructure--and the tools built upon it--provide significant capabilities and benefits to the software industry and will contribute to the continued success of Eclipse and the growth of the Eclipse ecosystem."

Eclipse is determined to give the Hyades project a great deal of exposure and industry adoption. Mike Milinkovich, Eclipse's Executive Director called the Hyades project "one of the great achievement of the Eclipse community."

In addition to Intel support of the project has been given by IBM, SAP, Compuware, and Fokus.
