Frameworks - Test And Performance · Bof
Wednesday, 20:00, 1 hour and 15 minutes | Room 201


The Eclipse Linux Tools project will now be the central place to find/develop the Eclipse Linux extended IDE features for both host and remote target development.

The Linux Tools Project will re-use generic features of other projects like CDT for compile/debug, TPTP for tracing/monitoring framework, DSDP/TM for remote connection, BIRT for reporting, Wascana for download/install of the whole tool chain i.e. both Eclipse and GNU tools.

This BOF will focus on the integration of the following Linux tools into Eclipse: Linux Tracing Toolkit, Valgrind, OProfile, GDB Tracepoints.

If time permits we can talk about packaging the Linux extended IDE on wascana :-)
