Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project Announces Availability of Release 3.2

Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project Announces Availability of Release 3.2
The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project, a top-level project in the Eclipse Foundation, announced that the TPTP release 3.2 will be available on the Eclipse Foundation website (www.eclipse.org) this week. TPTP 3.2 is the second significant platform release since the August 2004 creation of the TPTP Project, an evolution of the previous Eclipse ‘Hyades’ Project.

The Eclipse TPTP Project provides an open, standards-based platform supplying powerful frameworks and services for the development of software test and performance tools that are used throughout the application lifecycle from early testing to production application monitoring. TPTP 3.2 provides significant enhancements to the platform’s user interface, data-collection and Java tracing system. The platform’s own testing facilities helped with the testing of these enhancements.

TPTP 3.2 Highlights
Key enhancements in TPTP 3.2 include the following:

Enhanced data collection and communication with additional control over the selection of data-collection agents and information within the user interface

Improved statistical analysis representation and viewing

Better Java tracing capability

Additional documentation and help facilities with improved user help architecture and supporting documents

Simplified test deployment with supplementary automation for the creation and running of tests

Improved execution history that collects and makes available added data within the test execution history framework

“TPTP has made remarkable progress toward becoming a viable platform choice for Intel performance analysis tools in environments where options are limited such as Linux.” said Tyler Thessin, engineering manager for Intel Software Development Products and project lead for the TPTP Project. “Intel is looking forward to further unleashing the power of the TPTP platform and contributing our extensive experience in software performance analysis tools to the industry.”

About Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project
The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project is an open-source, collaborative project providing a common platform of commercial quality upon which specialized, differentiated, and interoperable offerings for world-class software test and performance tools are created. The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform enables tool integration and interoperability through open standards. It supplies extensible frameworks and services for test and performance tools that are used throughout the application lifecycle, from development through production, and supports a spectrum of standalone through highly distributed and embedded through enterprise computing systems. The project also delivers extensible exemplary tools that verify the utility of and illustrate the appropriate use of the platform, and support the development and maintenance of the platform itself.
