Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP)
Project Plan 2010
Executive Summary of Current Plan
The Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project provides an open platform supplying powerful frameworks and services that allow software developers to build unique test and performance tools, both open source and commercial, that can be easily integrated with the platform and with other tools.
After many successful releases of TPTP, the project has evolved and matured. However, participation in the project has dwindled over time. TPTP has been in maintenance mode since TPTP 4.5.0 and at this point of the project cycle, the PMC has decided that TPTP 4.7 will be the last major release of TPTP (part of the Eclipse Helio release). We will be participating in the upcoming Helios services releases (TPTP 4.7.1 for Helios SR1 and TPTP 4.7.2 for Helios SR2) but will not be part of the next major Eclipse release (Eclipse 3.7, a.k.a. Indigo).
Once TPTP 4.7.2 is released in February 2011, we plan to follow the Eclipse archiving process to archive the remaining TPTP projects, which means that the mailing lists, newsgroups, website, and completed CVS/SVN repository will be stored in an archive (a zip or tar.gz) on the eclipse.org servers. The projects to be archived include:
· Testing Tools
· Trace & Profiling Tools
· Monitoring Tools (archiving already approved by the EMO in May 2010)
Please contact the TPTP PMC if you have any questions or concerns on this plan.
Thank you for your continuing support of the Eclipse TPTP project!
