Jaluna offers compatibility with VxWorks

Luc Jarry writes "...Enabling Manufacturers and Integrators to leverage previously developed VxWorks® code and third-party libraries on Jaluna open source royalty free product suite.

"We are 'opening the door' so that users of VxWorks can easily re-use and deploy their applications on Jaluna open source real-time operating systems" said Michel Gien, President and CEO, Jaluna SA. "Many of us acknowledge the business and technical advantages of Open Source software, we are inviting designers to come taste and see without giving up their previous investments!"

Manufacturers and integrators are being pressed to reduce the production, development and maintenance costs of their end products. Linux and other open source solutions provide an attractive alternative, but they don't always meet the technical or business criteria. The Jaluna VxWorks compatibility kit when combined with Jaluna-1 enables them to re-use, validate and deploy existing applications and third-party libraries and benefit from open source royalty free deployment with minimum risk and cost investment.

The Jaluna VxWorks compatibility kit is offered as an add-on to the Jaluna-1 Carrier-Grade Edition, powered by the C5 real-time microkernel. This highly available, real-time operating system runs out of the box and is supplied with complete source code and top grade documentation. The compatibility kit features VxWorks 5.4 emulation and translation of VxWorks system calls to C5 system calls, thus preserving their real-time behaviour.

An evaluation copy of the compatibility kit can be downloaded in binary format from the Jaluna web site at: www.jaluna.com/proserv/vxkit-overview.html .
