Timestorm from Timesys (www.timesys.com) is another system integrated development environment (IDE) based on the open-source Eclipse project. It joins QNX's (www.qnx.com) Momentics as one of the full-blown environments handling real-time operating-system configuration and debugging in addition to application development and debugging.
Eclipse is a Java-based development environment initially developed by IBM and placed into open-source development. It has a flexible plug-in architecture that's conducive to third-party product support. IBM uses Eclipse in its Websphere development tools.
TimeStorm supports cross development for TimeSys Linux using C, C++, and Java. Eclipse projects can encompass a range of platforms for large development jobs. Developers using Eclipse or Eclipse-based products will have an edge in using new Eclipse plug-ins, migrating, or using other Eclipse-based platforms.
