Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform 4.0 Released - Available on Yoxos; Open Source Testing and Performance Tuning for Eclipse - Accessible on Yoxos and new Eclipse Mirror

KARLSRUHE, Germany --(Business Wire)-- Aug. 1, 2005 -- In coordination with the recent 4.0 release of the Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP), Innoopract announced the availability of TPTP 4.0 in its Yoxos Eclipse Distribution. TPTP extends the recently published Eclipse 3.1 development platform with tools for profiling, system monitoring, log file analysis and testing of multi-tiered applications. Yoxos provides Eclipse users an efficient and easy way to keep their Eclipse installations up-to-date. Eclipse users will be able to install or update the features they want from TPTP with just a few clicks through the Yoxos Install Manager. The TPTP features will be grouped according to the three functions of Monitoring, Testing, Tracing and Profiling.

Says Innoopract President Jochen Krause: "We are excited about the new version of TPTP and the availability of end-user tools for testing and performance tuning. TPTP provides developers with the out-of-the-box tools for monitoring multiple operating systems and application servers all as open source. This is great alternative to commercial tools that cost thousands of dollars. It is important to us to make sure that our Yoxos customers benefit from the new TPTP features and can easily update their Eclipse environments as quickly as possible."

Some additional new features and improvements of the TPTP project are improved and expanded support for the JUnit regression testing framework, improved usability, sophisticated filtering capabilities and improved scalability and performance.

"Yoxos' integration, validation, installation, and update features make it easier for developers to manage their Eclipse environments," stated Tyler Thessin, project lead for the Eclipse TPTP Project and engineering manager for Intel(R) Software Development Products. "For developers to realize the benefits of TPTP 4.0 and future releases, it is important that they keep their Eclipse and TPTP environments current. The TPTP project team is pleased that Innoopract has developed Yoxos which delivers an update service designed to simplify that process."

Innoopract Provides an Eclipse Mirror

In other news, Innoopract announced today that it will be supplying a mirror for download site helping to improve download times for developers. The mirror will provide up to 100 mbit per second of additional bandwidth and host the full spectrum of projects and builds of the community.

"One of the big advantages of Yoxos is that users can quickly update their Eclipse installation with a consistent set of plugins at any time through an Internet service," stated Jochen Krause. "We are thrilled with the high number of downloads at Eclipse since the release of 3.1. Our infrastructure is able to handle hundreds of thousands of requests per day and since our success is closely aligned with Eclipse's, we decided to make some of that available to Eclipse to help it achieve its goals.
