Many development tools that are deployed on the desktop create two challenges for large organizations: configuration and compliance. When a developer or system administrator needs to install a tool individually on each machine, or each tool needs a reconfiguration for each branch / project / issue, there is a lot of manual step-by-step configuration tasks that a developer or admin must perform (repeatedly) to achieve a proper configuration.

score is a generic engine that is able to execute workflows. A workflow has a logical structure that resembles a flow-chart.

Workflows contains both logical operations and actions. A workflow must be compiled using one of the available orchestration languages before use.

A compiled workflow is known as content and can take several forms such as jar files or a binary object stored in a database.


The fundamental architecture of the project consists of:

Moquette is a Java implementation of an MQTT 3.1 broker. Its code base is small. At its core, Moquette is an events processor; this lets the code base be simple, avoiding thread sharing issues.

The Moquette broker is lightweight and easy to understand so it could be embedded in other projects. By default it lives standalone, but could be integrated into an OSGi container to create more significant integrations, for example running inside an embedded OSGi broker like Concierge.

The Oomph project provides tools based on extensible frameworks, packaged as fine-grained features that allow consumers to pick and choose. The basic building blocks include the following:

This project provides features to allow scientific software to be inter-operable. Algorithms exist today which could be shared between existing Eclipse-based applications however in practice they describe data and do plotting using specific APIs which are not inter-operable or interchangeable. This project defines a structure to make this a thing of the past. It defines an inter-operable layer upon which to build RCP applications such that your user interface, data or plotting can be reused by others.

EASE allows the execution of script code (using scripting languages such as JS, Python, ...) within the context of the Eclipse Platform/RCP. As they are running in the same JRE as Eclipse itself, these scripts have direct access to any class of your application and may interact with your workbench.

The Eclipse Integrated Computational Environment (ICE) will address the usability needs of the scientific and engineering community for the Big Four modeling and simulation activities. The focus of the ICE will be to develop an easily extended and reusable set of tools that can be used by developers to create rich user interfaces for their modeling and simulation products. Custom widgets and data structures with well-defined interfaces and high-coverage unit tests will be provided for plugin developers.

4DIAC in its current form has been started 2007 as open source project fostering the further development of IEC 61499 for its use in distributed IPMCS and further distribute research results from the original contributors. From the beginning it provided everything necessary to program and execute distributed IPMCS.

Thym abstracts the platform and its related tooling details from the developers, allowing them to work with HTML5 development tools. It includes a series of generators that are capable of generating native platform projects such as XCode or Android projects and compiling them. There are also launchers for testing applications on native emulators and devices.

The Lua Development Tools project provides a comprehensive IDE and tools for Lua developers.
