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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
