Developing Scientific Applications Using Eclipse
July/August 2006 (vol. 8 no. 4)
pp. 50-61
Gregory R. Watson, Los Alamos National Laboratory

A large number of tools are already available to aid in the development of parallel scientific applications, yet many developers are unaware they exist, do not have access to them, or find them too difficult to use. Unlike the wider software development community where the use of integrated development environments is best practice, parallel software development languishes with the lowest common denominator of command-line tools and Emacs style editors. By harnessing the power and flexibility of the phenomenally successful Eclipse framework, we have developed a platform for the integration of parallel tools that aims to provide a robust, portable, and scalable parallel development environment for the development of high performance scientific computing applications. Eclipse can be daunting for beginners, so we will provide a brief introduction to Eclipse and the Eclipse architecture, then show how Eclipse can be used to improve the development of scientific computing applications.
Index Terms:
Eclipse, scientific applications, Emacs
