eCosCentric announces C++ support for eCosPro(TM)

Daniel Morris writes "eCosCentric announces C++ support for eCosPro(TM). CAMBRIDGE, UK -- September 28, 2004 -- eCosCentric Limited,
the eCos and RedBoot experts, today announced integration of the
industry standard C++ run-time library GNU libstdc++ v3 within their
range of eCosPro(TM) Developer's Kits. Initially targeting ARM &
PowerPC architectures, the eCosPro C++ support package conforms
to the ISO 14882 Standard C++ library specification.

"Industry standard C++ run-time support is a key requirement for
many teams, particularly those wishing to migrate from legacy
proprietary RTOS environments to eCos." said Daniel Morris,
Sales and Marketing Director at eCosCentric. "For the first time,
eCos deployments can benefit from the full richness of the C++
programming paradigm with a thread-safe run-time library that
includes a Standard Template Library (STL), fully validated and

The provision of an industry standard C++ run-time library enables
eCosCentric to support the more sophisticated and functionally
complex embedded applications that typify products in the biometric,
industrial control and communication segments. The swift migration
of existing C++ based applications in these segments is critical
to the successful roll-out of cost sensitive, high performance
devices based on eCosPro.

In keeping with the robust and stable eCosPro source base,
the C++ run-time library has been extensively tested within
eCosCentric's automated test farm infrastructure. In addition
to the battery of over 20,000 eCosPro run-time tests, a suite of
tests has been written to ensure coverage of the core elements of
functionality found in the eCosPro C++ library implementation,
namely:- algorithms, bitsets, complex numbers, I/O streams,
I/O manipulation, iterators, lists, maps, memory allocation/new,
strings and vectors. C++ exception handling and Run-Time Type
Information (RTTI) are fully tested in addition to the GNU standard
C++ library test suite.
