Eclipse TPTP, based on the Eclipse Platform, provides tools,
standards and much needed interoperability across the development process.
Building on TPTP has a number of benefits to vendors, customers and developers,
both in the short and long term. One benefit that spans an entire project is
the ability to integrate with TPTP at a non-specified pace. This provides
freedom from an all-or-nothing model and offers the flexibility of working
incrementally within the integration process. Other reasons to build on TPTP
TPTP allows developers to substantially broaden the scope of
Because TPTP can be leveraged by a
very wide spectrum of software tools, projects can be defined as widely or as
specifically as necessary. The tools available are:
Profiling and Tracing
Systems Performance and Availability Monitoring
Log Analysis and Correlations
Each tool can also be used in very
specific technologies such as web applications, HTTP, Java, .NET, C++ and other
common programming languages.
Link testing with requirements and traceability
Quality software products must
necessarily begin with well-defined requirements. Taken a step further, it
also critical that there is good traceability across teams and assets.
Products developed on TPTP have a built-in assurance that assets produced by
tools built on this platform can easily be linked to all other assets.
Broader market reach
The Eclipse community is growing at
a rapid pace. There are more than 10,000 websites referencing www.eclipse.org and new contributors and
committers are joining weekly. Members also have access to special marketing
programs and forums designed to connect vendors and customers.
Speed development and build new products faster
Leveraging the TPTP tools lets
software vendors minimize time and resources devoted to maintaining
infrastructure software and devote more time and effort to the company's core
technology and competitive advantage.
