Eclipse Scanning allows experiments to be conducted by coordinating the operation of scientific instruments, for example motors or detectors. It sequences the movements of these instruments (or devices) in order to scan different parts of the experimental space. For instance you might scan a temperature controller to conduct an experiment at different temperatures or move a goniometer through a range of optical angles or combine the two in a two dimensional scan. Scanning is useful as an open source project because the algorithms which complete scans during experiments are the same in many areas of research. Hardware is experiment specific so scanning algorithms can be used in many settings, whereever electronically controlled hardware does automated experiments.
EclEmma is a free Java code coverage tool for Eclipse that brings code coverage analysis directly into the Eclipse workbench.
Papyrus-xtUML is a tool that supplies the capability to edit, execute and translate xtUML models. Executable, translatable UML (xtUML) is an extension to UML based upon the Shlaer-Mellor Method of Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), which supports a powerful approach to Model-Driven Development (MDD). Papyrus-xtUML provides the system design community with access to xtUML editing, execution and translation capabilities, along with a forum to advance the use of this methodology.
Eclipse TEA is a tasking orchestration engine that can be run from within the Eclipse IDE or headlessly. It is immediately concerned with tasks related to building and managing plug-ins for the Eclipse Platform, but is general enough to support other types of tasks and builds.
The Open Standard Business Platform (OSBP) comprises a model-based software factory composed of extensible frameworks, tools and runtime environments for building, deploying and managing business applications across their lifecycles.
N4JS adds a static type system similar to that of Java to ECMAScript 2015. This type system support nominal and structural typing, in both cases supporting generics similar to that of Java 8. In order to capture details specific to ECMAScript,additional constructs are introduced such as union types, 'this' type, and special forms of structural types. Additional concepts required for larger projects are built in, e.g., dependency injection, test support, and various component types.
OPC Unified Architecture is an interoperability standard that enables the secure and reliable exchange of industrial automation data while remaining cross-platform and vendor neutral. The specification, currently version 1.03, is developed and maintained by the OPC Foundation with the guidance of individual software developers, industry vendors, and end-users. It defines the interface between Clients and Servers, including access to real-time data, monitoring of alarms and events, historical data access, and data modeling.
The Apogy open source project provides a set of frameworks, EMF models, and Graphical User Interface components that simplify the creation of the software required to operate a physical system.
January is a set of libraries for handling numerical data in Java. It is inspired in part by NumPy and aims to provide similar functionality.
