Thread: Need a VxWorks "Build" service

  1. Need a VxWorks "Build" service


    Good morning...

    I just received a request from a colleague of mine, who knows I have
    been involved with VxWorks projects in the past. The request goes as
    follows:

    "I have a test fixture that is running software that was built under
    VxWorks. We need to make a change to the software, but no longer have
    a development seat for it. Do you know anyone who offers such a
    service (take our code, with our mods, build it and send back to us to
    test)?"

    For the moment I am assuming that the VxWorks version is 5.4 or 5.5.
    I have emailed to confirm that.

    Can any of you help?

    If so please email me directly at:

    vxworks

    AT

    internetsmallfry

    DOT

    com

    (that's "Internet Small Fry" all run together)

    If you have any comments as to the feasibility of all of this, please
    reply here in the newsgroup. Personally I have my doubts whether any
    such service exists... at the least, there may be BSP issues, or any
    of a number of other kinds of issues...

    Thanks...

    I thought there might be some. I haven't used VxWorks in a while but
    I know that at the time one of their licensing models was
    royalty-based, per shipped device. In this particular case, the
    device is an internal device used for testing, and is not shipped. I
    assume there must be a way to handle that from a licensing
    perspective, such that a "build" service such as I describe could
    exist legally.

    But, perhaps not. :-)
