Software Development Tools Service

Eric Poinsignon , IT/API (

In SDT service we actively help software projects in CERN experiments to identify, evaluate, purchase and use industrial software development tools. Network floating licences are used as much as possible, so that the tools can be run remotely. We can also, if you have an AFS account, give you access to our Solaris server in case the binary for your platform is not available. You can find the complete information on what we have and how to use it at URL:
