Wind River Systems Inc., a device software optimization (DSO) provider, has turned over 300,000 lines of code to the Eclipse Foundation.

The contributions are being made to four Eclipse projects: the C/C++ Development Tools Project, the Platform Project, and both the Target Management and Device Debugging subprojects within the Device Software Development Platform Project.

The code contributed by Wind River is derived from the latest version of the company's commercial, Eclipse-based device software development suiteWorkbench 2.5. The Eclipse framework makes it possible for developers to leverage more than 400 commercial and open source plug-ins that aid in the design, development, testing and support of device software. Major hardware, software, and device manufacturing companies such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Motorola and Texas Instruments, have recently turned to Eclipse and the DSDP project as a platform to develop their commercial tools offerings.

With Wind River Workbench, said the company, developers can "see inside" a running target device to assess system behavior and performance. This functionality shortens edit-compile-debug cycles, for faster time-to-market and higher-quality devices, added Wind River.
