Eclipse has become the standard base for commercial Embedded Linux IDEs. The key components in these IDEs are the C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT) and Target Management(TM). We will look into new and noteworthy features in the latest 4.2 Eclipse release as well as current limitations for cross development. Using live examples, we will discuss creating a completely open source IDE for embedded Linux development from components and features of the CDT, TM, and Linux Tools projects.
The presentation is aimed at embedded Linux developers who are interested in using Eclipse as their IDE as well as cross tools integrators.
