Last week, at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco, the state of Eclipse was reviewed at a roundtable discussion of four participants in the project. Sebastian Marineau, development manager for QNX Software Systems Ltd., a supplier of real-time operating systems for embedded devices, talked about how Eclipse would help embedded developers.In answering to InformationWeek's senior writer Charles Babcock, Mr. Marineau said: The embedded market has traditionally been very fragmented in types of tools and types of development environments. An embedded developer might have one tool to compile, one to debug, and another that lets him profile or analyze what's running on the target platform. Eclipse let's a lot of different tools fit into a workbench so you get a single integrated development environment.
