Eclipse Indigo released

Filed under: C/C++, embedded systems, microcontroller, programming, software development — larryang @ 9:42 PM

Eclipse has come out with a new version: Eclipse Indigo released with WindowBuilder GUI tool and EGit 1.0.

For me, Eclipse has become the default development environment. It’s supported across different platforms (MAC OS, Linux, Windows), there as useful plugins and as an IDE it supports different target platforms. My main complaint is that the Eclipse workspaces are somewhat incompatible with Clearcase views.

For embedded systems, I use it for C/C++ development on these platforms listed below:

  • TI Code Composer 4.0 is based on Eclipse
  • Freescale Code Warrior is based on Eclipse
  • Leaf Labs Maple


  1. Hi Larry,

    Any idea where one obtains a ClearCase plugin which works with Indigo? I found this one on the marketplace:

    ClearCase Team Provider null

    But it had almost no information with it (description, help file entry) and I’m not at all certain it is supported or even where to find it within Eclipse.

  2. Haven’t tried it yet. I don’t use Clearcase with my Indigo installations. I use Clearcase only at work where Eclipse is part of a third-party package.

  3. Hi Larry,

    Thanks for your response. I finally determined that if a person has a Clearcase server in one’s organization, the Clearcase Eclipse plugin can be obtained by adding the following URL to the list of links to check to install software from: http://%5Bname-of-organization-clearcase-server%5D/ccrc/update.

    After installing the plugin from the organization’s Clearcase server it worked fine.

    Thanks again.
