[] Project Declaration: Device Software Development Platform

Title: Bjorn Freeman

As per the Eclipse Development Process, we are notifying the Eclipse Membership-at-Large of the intent of Wind River to propose the Device Software Development Platform as a top-level project.

A brief description of the project is below. A project proposal will be posted on in a week or so.

The goal of the Device Software Development Platform is to provide an open source framework and extensible exemplary tools to support the creation of embedded applications. Users of the Device Software Development Platform will find it easier to create plug-ins that work across a wide range of Eclipse based development environments, operating systems, connection mechanisms and target architectures. Projects under this top-level project will initially focus on (a) target management to enable developers to deploy, debug and analyze applications on a device, as well as (b) the configuration of operating system and middleware components.

The DSDP project will work closely with CDT and other Eclipse Projects to improve the overall platform by adding capabilities needed for embedded development, such as a asynchronous debugger interfaces and scalable parsing technology, in a consistent and meaningful way.

Discussion of the proposal will have its own newsgroup, but until then, discussion of this declaration should occur in the newsgroup. We look forward to input and discussion from the Eclipse community.
