Target Management Home

Mission Statement

The Target Management project creates data models and frameworks to configure and manage remote systems (from mainframe to embedded), their connections, and their services.

The Vision

To be the Eclipse "Explorer of the Network Neighborhood", with pluggable information providers under a single, consistent UI. Interactively discover, drill down, analyze remote systems (from mainframes down to embedded systems), and provide the context for more advanced actions being plugged in to it.

The Toolkit

The TM Terminal has received excellent reviews and star ratings on the Eclipse Marketplace. It provides a small, re-usable component for Terminal emulation and remote access.

The Remote System Explorer (RSE) framework integrates any sort of heterogeneous remote resources through a concept of pluggable subsystems. The base toolkit includes a Remote Files subsystem that allows transparent working on remote computers just like the local one, a shell and a processes subsystem. RSE is in maintenance mode, with possible successors being the TCF Target Explorer or a new framework based on the org.eclipse.remote API.

Vendors are extending the RSE with custom subsystems for debugging, remote VNC display and other uses.


Our latest full release is TM 4.4, but only the Terminal received significant updates. RSE is still in maintenance mode and remains at version 3.7.100 (updates for Photon). See also the downloads page.
