Tools for mobile Linux (TmL) is project #3 in my series of projects new to the Galileo release train.  Eric Cloninger is the TmL project lead.

What does your project do?

The Tools for mobile Linux (TmL) project creates tools and frameworks for mobile application development.

Who are your typical users?

Our users are Eclipse developers who are building mobile toolsets as well as end-users who need a VNC client.

Why did you join the Galileo release train? After completing your first release train, what do you think now?

We joined the Galileo release train as part of our objectives for the project. We wish to grow our community and raise awareness of what we are doing. Being on the train has forced us to be thorough in our testing and getting all the common Eclipse properties correct. It’s been a good experience for us to be a part of such a large effort.

What future enhancements are you planning for your project?

We are looking to expand the scope of TmL to be less focused on Linux and more focused on general Mobile Development. This change in charter will take in some of the development efforts around Eclipse Pulsar and should make the project more attractive to other mobile OS and handset vendors.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
