Castalia Camp > PolarSys

PolarSys is an Eclipse Industry Working Group created by large industry players and by tool providers to collaborate on the creation and support of Open Source tools for the development of embedded systems. Members of PolarSys started working on a Maturity Assessment task force back in 2013, to provide an evaluation of the quality of software components entering the PolarSys umbrella, and to provide advice and guidance to improve it.

Castalia Solutions has been selected to define and implement the Maturity Assessment process, and to work with the projects to continuously improve it. Our partner Bitergia provides an important part of the metrics retrieval process, using MetricsGrimoire.


The Quality Model

The PolarSys quality model has been discussed and defined through consensus among the PolarSys members. Its final version can be seen on the PolarSys dashboard: This specific visualisation uses D3js to represent the tree structure of the model and provides detailed information on each node.

You can learn more about the visualisation itself here: Visualising the PolarSys quality model.
