PTP Downloads

Welcome to the downloads page for the Parallel Tools Platform (including Photran).

The last release of PTP for Eclipse Indigo (3.7) is 5.0.7, released April 3, 2012 which works with Eclipse Indigo (3.7.x).

Please see the release notes and installation instructions for prerequisite information and instructions on installing PTP Release 5.0.x (both client and target machine (server) parts).

PTP 5.0 can be installed two ways:

  1. Install the Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers from the Eclipse downloads page. Currently has PTP 5.0.5
  2. Install into an existing Eclipse - first download Eclipse, and then use the Eclipse "Help > Install New Software..." menu to install PTP and its pre-requisites from: See the release notes for more details.

Currently, as of PTP Release 5.0.7 and Eclipse Indigo SR2 (24 Feb 2012), the Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers contains PTP 5.0.5, so if you have that installed you may wish to update to 5.0.7 via the PTP-specific update site listed above.

This PTP release is available from the PTP-specific update site:

  • Enable or add this site in your "Available Software Sites" then install from there initially, or update (Help > Check for Updates).
  • If you already have PTP 5.0.x installed from the PTP-specific update site, you should be able to do Help > Check for Updates... to get any updates to PTP since the latest Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers, if any.
  • If you initially installed the Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers, then follow the instructions for Updating from from the Parallel Package to a more recent release to install PTP on top of that from the PTP-specific update site; this gets the most recent update (or re-install the current release from there) and then Help > Check for Updates will find subsequent PTP releases automatically.

Other PTP builds are also available from the PTP builds page.

The following download link will work for the 5.0 versions of PTP. See the release notes for instructions on installing the optional PTP server components.

Optional Remote Development Tools (RDT) Server Components

The RDT server components are required if you are using the Remote System Explorer (RSE) as a remote service provider for RDT. If you are using Remote Tools (installed as part of PTP) the server components are installed automatically. See the release notes for more details on using RSE with RDT.
