Projects - Science

The Science top-level project provides a central clearinghouse for collaborative development efforts to create software for scientific research and development. These efforts strive towards the common goal of enabling reusable components across a wide variety of technologies. These components are implemented in different languages and operate across a diverse set of computing environments.

Eclipse StatET is an Eclipse-based IDE for R.

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.

Given our background on space missions, Apogy includes support to represent 3D topologies, interact with simple sensors, provides a plan editor that allows an operator to simulate or control a system, data displays to monitor system during operation as well as models of environment into which the systems are operated.

Eclipse 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.

Visualization is a critical part of science and engineering projects and has roles in both setting up problems and post-processing results. The input or "construction" side can include things like constructing 3D geometries or volume meshes of physical space and the post-processing side can include everything from visualizing those geometries and meshes to plotting results to analyzing images to visualizing real data to almost everything else imagineable.

This project allows user interfaces to be created from beans or graphs of beans. The user interface available has standard widgets which have few dependencies to reuse. For instance there are widgets for editing numbers with bounds validation, units and that allow expressions of other boxes. There are widgets for entering a range of values and expanding out bean graphs to complete Design of Experiments work.

Eclipse Triquetrum delivers an open platform for managing and executing scientific workflows. The goal of Triquetrum is to support a wide range of use cases, ranging from automated processes based on predefined models, to replaying ad-hoc research workflows recorded from a user's actions in a scientific workbench UI. It will allow to define and execute models from personal pipelines with a few steps to massive models with thousands of elements.

Eclipse ChemClipse supports the user to analyse data acquired from systems used in analytical chemistry. In particular, chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or flame-ionization detectors (GC/FID) is used to identify and/or monitor chemical substances. It's an important task e.g. for quality control issues.

The Eclipse Integrated Computational Environment (ICE) addresses the usability needs of the scientific and engineering community for the Big Four modeling and simulation activities. The focus of the ICE is 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 are provided for plugin developers.

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.
