Wind River to Head Embedded Eclipse Efforts

Wind River to Head Embedded Eclipse Efforts
Fresh off the introduction of five development partners handling key projects, the Eclipse Foundation this week will add a sixth to spearhead embedded systems efforts.

Wind River Systems Inc. will join Eclipse as a Strategic Developer, according to sources familiar with the plans. The announcement, to be made at the Embedded Systems Conference here this week, will detail the Alameda, Calif., company's plans to help make compiled language tool kits easier to create. Wind River officials declined to comment on the news.

Sources said Wind River will be working alongside Ottawa-based QNX Software Systems Ltd., which oversees the Eclipse CDT (C/C++ Development Tools) project to deliver a C and C++ IDE (integrated development environment).

Mike Milinkovich, executive director at Eclipse, said at the EclipseCon conference here last week that the organization is moving to add more extensive support for a number of languages, although the Eclipse platform is often seen as primarily Java-focused.

Hello, I work for a company called NetBurner.

NetBurner has an Embedded Eclipse solution for Embedded Ethernet at $99.

Here is a link to their page:
Embedded Eclipse

Here is a snippet from their press release:

NetBurner announced the Eclipse Ethernet Development Kit, a complete set of powerful developer hardware, software, and tools that enable rapid development of embedded network-enabled products. The $99 development kit includes: the NetBurner Mod5270 Core Module and development board, Eclipse IDE, uC/OS RTOS, TCP/IP stack, web server, C/C++ compiler and linker, flash file system and deployment tools.

This kit includes NetBurner's Eclipse Integrated Development Environment delivering time saving features such as single click compile and load capability, intelligent code completion, and integrated graphical debugger. This enables developers to interact with external devices by writing code in ANSI C/C++ within the Eclipse environment, and compile and load it into a NetBurner Ethernet Core Module in seconds.
