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.

New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality
19.10.2016 | University of Waterloo
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
