QNX donates source code to create industry-standard platform for C/C++ development

10 September 2002 Computer/Embedded Technology

To advance the adoption of standards for embedded software development, QNX Software Systems is contributing source code from selected C/C++ tools in its QNX Momentics development suite to Eclipse.org, an open-source community that creates royalty-free technology. The QNX technology will be used to enhance the C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) Project for the Eclipse platform and will help build an extensible, industry-standard framework for integrating tools from a variety of C/C++ tools vendors.

"The Eclipse Tools Project team working to create C and C++ tools will benefit from the leadership, expertise, and unique perspective that QNX brings to the table," said Skip McGaughey, chairperson of the Eclipse Board of Stewards. "Best of all, as the QNX team works to address support for a large number of embedded processor architectures, all deployment environments addressed by Eclipse-powered tools will benefit."

QNX is taking the lead on the CDT Project, which, with QNX's source code, will help the project's C/C++ integrated development environment (IDE) work with a broad range of development hosts and target processors. Sebastien Marineau, a senior architect at QNX, has taken on the role of project leader for the CDT, and is being joined by other QNX Software Systems engineers who will contribute to the project. QNX tools partner Rational Software has also committed to provide development resources. The project team's goal is to make C/C++ support in Eclipse as strong as the Java support that the platform provides today.

In June, QNX launched the QNX Momentics development suite, which includes the first commercial C/C++ IDE based on Eclipse.
