Provisioning and managing embedded systems

Jeff McAffer, Equinox Project Co-Lead & EclipseSource

Abstract: Embedded systems are becoming increasingly powerful and looking more and more like miniature distributed systems. As their connectivity, storage and compute capabilities increase so does the complexity of the software they run. This complexity is both an opportunity and a challenge. The opportunity is to create targeted system solutions with the flexibility to adapt to usage models (e.g., connected, disconnected, full and lite product versions, ...). The challenge is to create, deliver and manage software systems that afford this level of variability.

This talk focuses on p2, the Equinox provisioning platform, and its use in industrial settings for provisioning and managing remote and embedded systems. We cover the architecture and extensibility of p2 as well as its use in both Java and non-Java systems.



Hardwarefreies Embedded Software Development

Thomas Donhauser, SKIDATA AG

Abstract: Die Testbarkeit von hardwarenahen Softwarekomponenten gestaltet sich zumeist sehr schwierig und teuer, einmal mehr wenn eine komplexe Applikation darüber liegt. Das führt i.d.R. zu Qualitätsmängeln, die speziell beim Roll-Out eines neuen Produktes das Kunde-Lieferant-Verhältnis belasten können. Ausweg bietet hier eine konsequente Zerteilung von Funktionalitäten in Schichten, die für sich automatisiert getestet werden können. Dieser Ansatz führt zur Chance, die identifizierten Schichten durch Simulationen zu ersetzen und die Testabdeckung nach oben zu treiben. Embedded Software Development wird zum Teil eines regulären Entwicklungsprozesses, der sich nicht von anderen unterscheidet. Qualität lässt sich dadurch erzeugen und steuern, sie wird weniger das Produkt von zufälligen Einzelleistungen.

Die Skidata AG ist auf die Entwicklung und Vermarktung von Besuchermanagementsystemen, Zutrittstechnologien und Ticketinglösungen spezialisiert. Thomas Donhauser leitet dort die Abteilung "Device Enabling Interface Technology". Er berichtet über sein Projekt zur Hardwarefreien Entwicklung von Embedded Software.



Open Source and Legal

Janet Campbell, Legal Counsel & Manager, Intellectual Property at the Eclipse Foundation

Abstract: The legal issues of using and contributing to open source projects are often a source of confusion. In this session, we will focus on the key aspects of open source licensing. The session will also outline how the Eclipse Foundation provides the legal framework for industry collaboration through the use of Working Groups to facilitate the creation and growth of innovation networks. As part of this, the session will examine how the Eclipse Foundation manages contributions of intellectual property to Eclipse projects and undertakes due diligence to give our downstream consumers greater comfort as they use and distribute Eclipse technology.

Janet Campbell is Legal Counsel & Manager, Intellectual Property at the Eclipse Foundation and is responsible for the review of intellectual property proposed for inclusion in Eclipse open source projects. This review includes examining both the provenance of the intellectual property and license compatibility
