Embedded World — Digia has
released a major update to Qt Enterprise Embedded, the fully-integrated
solution that enables users to get started immediately with software
development for an embedded device with a tailored user experience. The
Qt Enterprise Embedded update introduces several new value-add features
that further increase developer efficiency, application and device
performance and ultimately shortens software embedded development time
to just hours.
Qt Enterprise Embedded brings flexibility to embedded development
allowing engineers to create beautiful, high-performing and modern UIs
and applications with built-in productivity enhancing tools for fast,
easy, fully-integrated embedded device application development. The
pre-configured embedded development environment, pre-built Qt optimized
software stack for immediate deployment to Qt Enterprise Embedded
verified reference boards allows users to get up and running and have a
working embedded project prototype from day one. It supports the key
requirements for high performance with optimizable native C++ libraries
and minimal footprint while providing a flexible, full-framework modular
architecture to deliver unparalleled scalability.
The major update to Qt Enterprise Embedded provides developers targeting
embedded Linux the flexibility and ease to take their prototype quickly
into production by simply building their own stack using the Yocto
Project tooling with an included selection of Qt-optimized recipes.
Developers will also notice several improvements to the emulator making
productivity and performance key. First, the built-in emulator has
received a significant update where it now utilizes native graphics
acceleration on the host computer allowing applications to run at least
as fast on the emulator as on the real device. Lastly, sensor emulation
is now supported enabling developers to easily test how their
application reacts to various sensor inputs.
In addition, the update integrates the Qt Virtual Keyboard, which
provides a solid base for use in a variety of embedded devices,
especially those with a touchscreen UI. Fully licensed under Qt
Enterprise Embedded, it can be incorporated in, and deployed with, all
kinds of embedded products without concerns over third party license
compatibility. The keyboard can also be extended with commercial and
open source spell checkers and word prediction engines. It allows for a
fully custom visual appearance and is scalable to different screen sizes
and resolutions. Two example layout appearances are included – one
modern and one retro style.
The release also strengthens the out-of-the-box customizable UI controls
providing a powerful set of pre-defined Quick Enterprise Controls, a
library of pre-defined, customizable UI controls to accelerate UI
development. Designers and developers can choose existing controls and
customize or extend them to match the desired look-and-feel of their
user interface. Available items include: circular gauge, straight gauge,
delay button, pie menu, dial and toggle button, switch, slider, progress
bar, checkbox and several other controls needed to make modern,
touch-optimized user interfaces.
The convenient out-of-the-box Qt Enterprise Embedded development
environment frees developers from tedious compilation of required
libraries to device and provides an advantageous develop-deploy-debug
workflow. The self-contained pre-configured development environment is
installed and updated through a single online installer and features a
full Qt Creator IDE. Development is done with Qt Enterprise libraries
and device deployment can be achieved with one click directly from Qt
Creator to a target connected via USB or network. Alternatively, the
application can be deployed to the built-in emulator on the host system
that is running the same software stack as the target device easing the
The Qt Enterprise Embedded software stack (Boot to Qt) is a lightweight,
Qt-optimized, full software stack that is installed on the target
hardware. The stack is supplied for embedded Android and embedded Linux
for a number of different reference HW configurations. The embedded
Android variant, which is based on the Android kernel and selected
middleware, is a lean software stack where Qt/QML replaces the entire
top Java layer including graphics and the Dalvik VM. It also has the
Zygote process layer and Android home screen removed, enabling better
customization of the device’s user experience.
The Qt Enterprise Embedded pre-built software stack supports several
reference platforms providing a pre-built out-of-the-box image via the
installer. This allows for easy prototyping and test deployment
shortening time to market for a variety of complex projects. Qt
Enterprise Embedded provides the following verified reference platforms:
BeagleBone Black (new in this update), Beagle Board xM, Raspberry Pi,
Boundary Devices SabreLite, Google Nexus 7 and x86 PC. Other hardware is
also supported and customized by Digia and its services partners.
Full details on supported hardware, more information about Qt Enterprise
Embedded and a 30-day free trial offer can be found at http://qt.digia.com/qtenterpriseembedded
Digia will be present at Embedded World 2014 (Feb 25-27) exhibiting
several demos running Qt Enterprise Embedded and will host various
hands-on live demo sessions showcasing the top features at the Qt LIVE
Demo Theatre on the show floor. Visit Hall 4, 4-408.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...
