Overview of the IDE
Welcome to the IDE, a powerful set of tools in the QNX Momentics Tool Suite. The IDE is based on the Eclipse Platform developed by the Eclipse Foundation, an open consortium of tools vendors (including QNX Software Systems).
The IDE incorporates into the Eclipse framework several QNX-specific plugins designed for building projects for target systems running the QNX Neutrino RTOS. The tool suite provides a single, consistent, integrated environment, regardless of the host platform you're using (Windows, Mac, or Linux). Plugins from most vendors work within the Eclipse framework in the same way.
Build applications using the IDE
If you've used an IDE before, then you already have a good idea of the convenience and power this kind of toolset can offer.
Through a set of related windows, the IDE presents various ways of viewing and working with all the components that comprise your system. In terms of the tasks you can perform, the toolset lets you:
- organize your resources (projects, folders, files)
- edit resources
- collaborate on projects with a team
- compile, run, and debug your programs
- analyze and fine-tune your system's performance
