CA joins, will lead monitoring tools project

Dec 20, 2004 — by Henry Kingman — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Computer Associates (CA) has joined the Eclipse Foundation and will lead the Monitoring Tools Project, a sub-project of the Test and Performance Tools Project (TPTP). The TPTP is used to test standalone and distributed embedded Linux and enterprise Linux systems, CA says. CA sells change management software compatible with Eclipse.

The TPTP is a top-level project of the Eclipse Foundation, a non-profit entity formed in March, 2004 to oversee the development of Eclipse, a platform for cross-vendor tools integration that was originally donated to the open source community by IBM.

The TPTP is managed by the Project Management Committee (PMC), which CA says has appointed it to lead the Monitoring Tools Project one of four top-level TPTP projects that also include the Platform Project, Test Tools Project, and the Tracing and Profiling Project. CA says that as leader of the Monitoring Tools Project, it will play an important role in advancing and fulfilling the charter of the TPTP.

In the past, CA says, it has worked closely with the Eclipse Project to integrate its AllFusion Harvest Change Manager with Eclipse 3.0. It says the product provides a single point of control for changes, automates resource tracking, helps to satisfy audit and government requirements for record-keeping and management reporting, and increases programmer productivity.

CA CTO Yogesh Gupta said, “Joining the Eclipse Foundation underscores CA's commitment to embrace the open source paradigm. CA will work closely with the Eclipse community to broaden the spectrum of the test and performance tools available on the Eclipse Platform.”

Eclipse Foundation's executive director, Mike Milinkovich, said, “The commitment of global companies like CA demonstrates the momentum behind our initiatives and importance of our work for the IT community.”
