    2625its commercial proprietary competition, Eclipse support is an important
    2726feature.  Eclipse has a plug-in architecture and there are already
    2827multiple plug-ins and add-ons for embedded development.

    68 [http://www.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm/ '''RSE'''] Remote System Explorer (Target Management) can be used to create a SSH (Secure SHell) connection to the QEMU (Quick EMUlator) emulator. This can be done by connecting to
    69 the local host via SSH, since the SSH port of the host has been redirected to the SSH port of the emulator. Once this connection had been established a remote shell can be launched on the QEMU using the “Launch Shell” option under “SSH Shells”. This shell can be used to browse the emulator filesystem and run commands on the emulator.

    7170One of the interesting aspects of this is how Wind River has adopted Eclipse as the platform for vxWorks and Embedded Linux development. It appears that they are putting significant effort into contributing code back to the DSDP platform and trying to help create open standards for this type of development environment. It would be nice if this work ends up meaning that an Eclipse platform could talk to a target server on either vxWorks, Linux or RTEMS.

    75 [http://www.eclipse.org/rtsc '''RTSC (Real-Time Software Components)'''] provides foundational tools and low-level runtime content to enable component-based development using the C language targeting all embedded platforms. While other component technologies exist for embedded systems, RTSC is unique in that it scales down to highly resource constrained embedded systems including DSPs and 16-bit micro-controllers.

     188The publishing of the initial implementation of RTEMS Eclipse Plug-in came with
    190189some accidents. It's Joel Sherrill who first discovered the appearance
    191190of such implementation. One night the initial implementer was uploading
    192 screen shots to the wiki site to document the usage of the plug-in, there
     191screenshots to the wiki site to document the usage of the plug-in, there
    193192were problems with uploading files, and later the wiki site became inaccessible.
    194193The implementer thought he might bring down the wiki site, so went to sleep.
