Oomph's Targlet technology extends PDE's base functionality for specifying a target platform definition by providing a more expressive, flexible, and reliable mechanism. The Targlets framework is fully integrated with PDE. It uses PDE's target location extension point, providing a Targlet Container implementation to augment PDE's built-in target location implementation.

Install Targlet Support
