VTT Joins Eclipse Foundation

13.11.2006
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has joined the Eclipse Foundation as an associate member. The Eclipse Foundation is a non profit legal entity that oversees Eclipse, one of the most successful open source development projects.

Eclipse is an open development platform and application framework for building software. VTT's first contribution to the Eclipse community is a tool designed for managing a software architectural knowledge base.

Eclipse represents part of the implementation process for VTT's technology policy. In order to express VTT's support to the Eclipse community, VTT has joined the Eclipse Foundation as an associate member.

VTT has recently contributed to the Eclipse ecosystem by developing a tool called "Stylebase for Eclipse". The tool provides assistance for software architects and designers. It has been implemented as an Eclipse extension and published under the GNU General Public License, the most well-known open source software license.

Eclipse is known as the most popular open source development environment and a universal platform for tool integration. Eclipse forms an independent open eco-system around royalty-free technology. The Eclipse community has developed new features that have helped evolve the platform towards integrating not only tools but also applications and services. New features also make Eclipse a strong force in the embedded market and expands the community even further internationally. Today, Eclipse is more than "just" a development environment, it has become a powerful platform that serves the entire application life cycle.

The Eclipse Foundation is a non-profit entity formed to advance the creation, evolution, promotion, and support of Eclipse. It has a full-time management organization that works with commercial developers and consumers, academic and research institutions, standards bodies, tool interoperability groups, and individual developers. The foundation co-ordinates nine open source projects with more than 50 sub-projects.

Stylebase is a re-use repository of software architectural models and patterns. It is an important part of the quality-driven software architecture design and analysis methodology. Stylebase for Eclipse is a tool for browsing and maintaining the stylebase. It aims to improve the quality of software products by helping architects and designers in selecting models that best provide the desired quality goals.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
