Code Confidence consulting services for Eclipse/CDT

The Eclipse development platform is a remarkable success story. It enables commercial participation in a pervasive software development ecosystem which offers the high level of integration that engineers demand while allowing individual tools to exhibit a strong brand identity. The Eclipse IDE has been adopted by semiconductor manufacturers, board vendors, debugging specialists and many others within the embedded systems sector who recognise the value of Eclipse compatibility.

Code Confidence™ has substantial real-world experience in the generation, customisation and productisation of Eclipse-based development tools and offers this experience in the form of our Eclipse consulting services. We work at all levels, ranging from non-technical presentations of Eclipse through to a comprehensive Eclipse plugin development service. Our expertise is centered around the C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT) and GNU toolchain components.

Core development competences

  • Eclipse Project Wizards - simplified CDT project creation for a specific hardware target, RTOS or toolchain
  • Eclipse Editors - presentation and manipulation of configuration files, linker scripts and other project content
