Anthony J. Massa, author of a new book on eCos, provides this brief introduction to his book for embedded developers in the community . . .

“My new book, Embedded Software Development with eCos (ISBN 0-13-035473-2; Prentice Hall PTR), is the quickest way to get started using eCos, the open-source and royalty-free Embedded Configurable Operating System (eCos). Basically, the book guides you through all of the steps necessary to setup a complete embedded software development environment — all the tools necessary to tackle any project. The examples give you the baseline understanding to begin using eCos in your own projects . . .”
