Wind River Upgrades Its Workbench Development Tools

New Plug-Ins Unlock The Power Of Wind River Run-Time Solutions For Greater Integration And Solution Flexibility

Wind River Systems  announced Wind River Workbench 2.6, a significant upgrade and collection of enhancements to the company’s comprehensive device software development tools. Developers will be able to more easily integrate the commercial-grade software design, analysis and test tools provided by Workbench 2.6 into existing development projects or workflows, and even install the tools into pre-existing Eclipse installations. Wind River’s collection of software development tools will help device manufacturers focus on building differentiated device applications, understand and test complex projects and accelerate time-to-market by leveraging the deeply instrumented middleware technology in both VxWorks and Wind River Linux platforms.

“Our latest Workbench tools are designed to unlock the power of VxWorks and Wind River Linux run-times,” said Steven Heintz, director of product management, Wind River. “Wind River is committed to enriching our customers’ overall development experience by increasing interoperability with other software tools and fostering collaboration among hardware engineers, software developers and testers within a project team. The new Workbench enhancements empower device developers to innovate at the application layer, reduce development costs and increase overall productivity.”

Workbench 2.6 delivers device software tools in a standards-based Eclipse development environment that ensures higher-quality products, improved kernel and middleware insight, and higher productivity. Optimized for device software development across the entire product lifecycle, the latest version of Workbench offers knowledge-sharing facilities and a unique set of diagnostic tools to rapidly test and repair running systems.

New Enhancements in Workbench 2.6:

* Implementation onto existing Eclipse installation as a plug-in: To support users who already develop with Eclipse, Workbench can now be installed as a set of plug-ins to an existing Eclipse 3.2 installation. As a result, users may now preserve projects and configurations in an existing Eclipse implementation when adopting Workbench.
* Compatibility with Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools (CDT): Workbench is now compatible with CDT, allowing users to have both CDT projects and Workbench projects in the same Eclipse shell. This allows Workbench to co-exist with other vendors' Eclipse-based products that may require CDT, significantly improving interoperability across the desktop.
* Java development support: The Java Development Toolkit (JDT) is now included in Workbench to facilitate device-focused Java development. Support for multi-language systems has also been added to allow users to develop and support systems with both Java and C/C++. Users may debug Java calls into C or C++ at either source code level. Supporting Java helps developers deploy the right technology for the right task within their device while using Workbench as the common development environment.
Now based on the Eclipse 3.2.1 framework: This version of Workbench is based on Eclipse version 3.2.1, which is an upgrade from version 3.1 - used in Workbench 2.5. As the DSDP project lead in Eclipse, Wind River is committed to helping customers stay current with the latest versions of Eclipse each year.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
