This talk presents an update on the various projects provide support for native development based on Eclipse IDE technologies. Of course this includes the CDT and activities going on there but also projects that extend CDT in interesting ways, e.g. for super computing and for Linux development.
We’ll also give some insight into what’s happening in the community around native development including a survey of products that use CDT. Essentially we provide a roadmap for those attendees who want the 10,000 foot view and pointers on where to go next.
I am Doug Schaefer, a senior engineer and technical lead at Wind River working on the ultimate IDE for the Wind River platforms. I am a very long time contributor to the Eclipse CDT project including the last 5 years as the project lead. I was one of the original designers on CDT parsers and indexer and technical lead for the team contributions back in the early days of the CDT.
My recent focus is on the Target Communication Framework (TCF) project that is now a subproject of CDT. TCF provides a protocol and standardized services that allow interaction between tools and embedded targets for things such as debug.
In my personal and "contribute to the common good of CDT" time, I am hugely interested in the mobile space, especially with Android and Android native development. I am also interested in seeing how we can bring the good of Eclipse to iOS developers, but that is a tougher egg to crack.
