Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) Tuesday introduced a new HP OpenView tool for developers using the Eclipse open source framework, which it says simplifies the creation, development and deployment of Internet Usage Manager (IUM) components.
The new HP OpenView IUM Component Development Environment, unveiled at the JavaOne show in San Francisco, is aimed at reducing the complexity Eclipse developers face when working in multiple environments, HP said.
Eclipse is an open source community that seeks to establish a platform for software development tools integration.
The new tool works with the HP OpenView IUM, which collects systems, network and usage data and automates analysis for functions such as planning, billing and cost allocation. While HP OpenView IUM automates these functions, different customer needs and policies can require the development of new system components.
The new software tool simplifies the development and deployment of these components by allowing developers to more easily build standards-based applications that scale, HP said.
The development environment has also been integrated with the IUM Plug-In Development Kit, which HP said will allow developers to speed the creation of custom extensions.
The new tool will be available for download later this month by licensed IUM users, HP said.
