Yesterday, the Eclipse Foundation's board of directors announced that they have approved a Device Software Development Platform project originally proposed by Wind River. Even if Wind River were not a sponsor of DSO.com, I would have to say this marks an important milestone for the device software optimization concept.
Why? Because DSDP is designed to drive a common development platform and value into the DSO developer community. If DSDP works, it will extend the Eclipse platform to establish a common framework for the integration of all capabilities required by device-software developers, as well as a common set of base functionality that can be enhanced and extended by the Eclipse community. This common platform should make plug-in development more efficient while also letting developers target a greater number of operating systems and devices.
A round of applause for the Eclipse Foundation's board, please.
