Our sister company Remain Software is the developer of TD/OMS, a Software Change Management solution for the IBM System i platform. Remain uses open source tooling (Eclipse Framework, Java, OSGi, Maven,..) for the development of TD/OMS and the new generation of Software Change Management Gravity . These development solutions are now offered by Industrial TSI to a wide market.
The Eclipse Framework is a very powerful development environment written in Java. With Eclipse, developers can develop applications in various programming languages including Java, C, C++, PHP and Python.
The Eclipse Platform uses plug-ins to provide all functionality within and on top of the runtime system, in contrast to some other applications, in which functionality is hard coded. The Eclipse Platform's runtime system is based on Equinox, an implementation of the OSGi core framework specification.
With the exception of a small run-time kernel, everything in Eclipse is a plug-in. This means that every plug-in developed integrates with Eclipse in exactly the same way as other plug-ins; in this respect, all features are "created equal". The Eclipse Platform can also be extended using other programming languages such as C and Python.
This modular plugin architecture can be used to build RCP applications and makes it easily possible to add new functionality to Eclipse (markup languages like LaTeX, version control systems like Git, Subversion and CVS and modeling in UML diagrams).
Eclipse license, all functionality in Eclipse can be used and reused as efficiently as possible. Eclipse is an excellent tool for the modern software developer.
Eclipse is an open-source community that develops open platforms and products. The community says its projects "are focused on building an open development platform consisting of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle". The Eclipse Foundation is a non-profit corporation which acts as the steward of the Eclipse community.
Industrial TSI is the Eclipe Expertise Centre of the Netherlands and is the first Dutch member of the Eclipse Foundation.
The best experts in the areas of Eclipse RCP, RAP, eRCP, EMF, GMF, GEF, Mylyn and OSGi are affiliated with Industrial TSI.
