OC Systems Joins Eclipse Foundation; Commits to Developing
Add-In Product for the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform Project
OC Systems Will Use the Eclipse Test and Performance
Tools Platform to Test and Debug the RootCause Add-In
ECLIPSECON 2005, BURLINGAME, Calif.March 1, 2005OC
Systems, Inc., a provider of state-of-the-art software tools and development
environments, today announced its membership in the Eclipse Foundation. OC
Systems has joined as an add-in member and will be developing a version of
RootCause that will be an add-in for the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools
Platform (TPTP) Project.
RootCause is a powerful debugging tool for the production
environment that speeds resolution of complex memory leaks, performance
bottlenecks and other defects in enterprise applications. With RootCause,
senior engineers can develop application-specific probes to monitor any
aspect of the internal functioning of an application, obtaining information
not available through other tools.
RootCause uses a patented technology to non-invasively
instrument software applications. No changes are made to any application
files stored on disk. No access to source code is required. All components
of the application can be traced, including third-party code, shared
libraries, legacy code (across JNI boundaries), dynamic components, Java
Virtual Machines (JVMs), compilers, application servers, and browsers.
"OC Systems is proud to be a new member of the Eclipse
Foundation and to lend our collaborative efforts to the open-source
community," said Oliver Cole, president of OC Systems. "Were very excited
about the vision behind TPTP and look forward to being one of the first
vendors to offer an add-in product."
"We welcome OC Systems to the Eclipse Foundation and the
valuable contributions that they bring to advancing TPTP," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse Foundation.
"The commitment of
respected and innovative companies like OC Systems continues to underscore
the momentum behind our initiatives."
RootCause for Eclipse will be developed on the Eclipse TPTP
Platform for the TPTP Platform. As proof of concept, the tool will be tested
and debugged using Eclipse TPTP. "We are excited to be able to so fully
utilize the TPTP framework while at the same time developing an add-in that
will further the goal of interoperability standards," added Cole.
RootCause for Eclipse is expected to ship in the fourth
OC Systems will also be contributing code to enhance the
Java instrumentation capabilities of the Eclipse TPTP Project.
About the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform
The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project is an
open-source, collaborative project providing a common platform of commercial
quality upon which specialized, differentiated, and interoperable offerings
for world-class software test and performance tools are created. The Eclipse
Test & Performance Tools Platform enables tool integration and
interoperability through open standards. It supplies extensible frameworks
and services for test and performance tools that are used throughout the
application lifecycle, from development through production, and supports a
spectrum of standalone through highly distributed and embedded through
enterprise computing systems. The project also delivers extensible exemplary
tools that verify the utility of and illustrate the appropriate use of the
platform, and support the development and maintenance of the platform
itself. Full details of the Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform
Project are available at
