Wind River suite supports entire development lifecycle

Posted: 08 Nov 2004 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Wind River Systems Inc. announced the general availability of its next generation Workbench 2.2, an Eclipse-based development suite that supports the entire device software development lifecycle, from hardware bring-up to manufacturing.

The company claims that it is the only development suite that offers support for the most widely distributed device software OSes, VxWorks and Linux, as well as in-house OSes. With this workbench, companies can standardize on one common development suite across the enterprise.

Today, organizations have multiple device development teams in different geographic locations that focus on specific development phases, Wind River explained. For each phase, developers may use different processes, tools and vendors that are completely different from other teams working on the same project. With this lack of standardization and collaboration, efficiency is diminished.

By integrating development technologies such as powerful source code analysis, JTAG based on-chip debugging and OS aware and task level debugging into one common development suite, the workbench provides device developers with the technology capabilities required to complete their specific task quickly and effectively.

Additionally, as it supports each phase of device development, the new suite enables organizations to streamline collaboration between developers, thereby increasing productivity across the development lifecycle.

"Companies are demanding a development environment that supports multiple projects, target platforms and languages. They also want to gain efficiencies by using that same environment throughout the development process," said John Bruggeman, chief marketing officer for Wind River. "Wind River Workbench is poised to become the de-facto standard for OS-independent device software development."
