New tools are aimed at helping developers build autonomic features into their applications.IBM Corp. has released a set of tools, based on the Eclipse open-source development platform, aimed at helping developers build autonomic features into their applications.
David Bartlett, director of autonomic computing at IBM in Hawthorne, N.Y., said the IBM Autonomic Computing Toolkit features tools, usage scenarios and components and is built to work with the IBM Software Development Platform. The toolkit also is built in accordance with IBM's Autonomic Computing Blueprint released last April, Bartlett said. Autonomic computing involves self-managing, self-healing systems.
Bartlett said IBM based the toolkit on Eclipse "in our commitment to have an open approach. We wanted a platform to provide open technologies." IBM announced the availability of the toolkit Monday.
