Aonix Provides Customers a Common Platform by Joining Eclipse

6/11/2004 - Aonix®, an independent global company delivering complete solutions for safety- and mission-critical applications, has joined Eclipse, a community committed to the implementation of an universal platform for tools integration. In addition to porting its Ada95, PERC® and AmeosTM tool suites to the Eclipse platform, Aonix plans to deliver an Eclipse-based IDE targeted to developers of mission- and safety-critical solutions.

“The direction of the Eclipse Platform complements our strategy of delivering common platforms that enable embedded developers to mix tools and secure former and future development through interoperable technologies,” noted Jacques Brygier, vice president of marketing at Aonix. “In the mission- and safety-critical market, our customers come from a number of industry sectors, each carrying its own certification standards and specialized tools. Like Eclipse, we have focused on the development of common platforms, particularly with our products based on our SmartKernelTM real-time executives family, in which our tools—or the next vendors’—work seamlessly, enabling developers to focus on building applications, not on integrating tools.”

“Aonix’s support for Eclipse affirms the benefits of a universal platform in delivering mission- and safety-critical tools,” noted Mike Milinkovich, Eclipse executive director. “We welcome Aonix into Eclipse and look forward to collaboration and future contributions as they extend the Eclipse Platform into their offerings and industry segment.”

Aonix already offers different levels of Eclipse integration with its PERC and Ameos products. In the near future, Aonix will integrate its Ada 95-based development environment and the first version of the SmartKernel product family. The Eclipse-based IDE common to all Aonix products is under development and a beta copy will be released in the second half of the year.

About Eclipse
Eclipse has established an open-source eco-system of tools providers and consumers by creating technology and an open universal platform for tools integration. The open-source Eclipse community creates royalty-free technology as a platform for tools integration. Eclipse based tools give developers freedom of choice in a multi-language, multi-platform, multi-vendor supported environment. Eclipse delivers a plug-in based framework that makes it easier to create, integrate and use software tools, saving time and money. By collaborating and sharing core integration technology, tool producers can concentrate on their areas of expertise and the creation of new development technology. The Eclipse Platform is written in the Java language, and comes with extensive plug-in construction toolkits and examples. It has already been deployed on a range of development workstations including HP-UX®, Solaris®, AIX®, Linux®, MAC OS X®, QNX® and Windows® based systems. Full details of the Eclipse community and white papers documenting the design of the Eclipse Platform are available at
