What is an 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 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 tools suite provides a single, consistent, integrated environment, regardless of the host platform you're using (Windows or Linux). Plugins from most vendors should work within the Eclipse framework in the same way.
