EclipseCon 2007 March 5-8, Santa Clara California

Martin O's Mobile and Embedded Track

Martin Oberhuber (Wind River)

· Recommended Track

Here is a track that includes all sessions submitted under Mobile / Embedded, plus some other stuff that I found interesting:

Did you know that EclipseCon starts on Sunday already for those interested? - I'm going to join the Committer and Project Boot Camp since it covers lots of interesting things even for existing committers.

I'm going to start Tutorial Day with the DSDP tutorials: session 3588, and (3611) The Two Faces of MTJ. Then I'm presenting my own tutorial: (3651) Building Tools on the Target Management RSE Framework and finish the day with (3664) UI Forms: I can't believe it's not browser.

On Tuesday, I'll start with C++ GUI Builder for Mobile or Embedded devices before I dive into a series of Short Talks - the ones I'm really interested in being Eclipse Pluginfest 2007 - Lessons Learned (I was there!), IPZilla Best Practices - How to speed up review (good to know as a project lead!), Eclipse Linux Distros Project Overview, Using Buckminster for Automated Provisioning of Developer Workspaces (relevant for the new Common Build Infrastructure), Mylar, XPlanner and Scrum, and Third Party Code - Licenses that work and those that don't/Does dual-licensing help?.

On the next slot, I'm torn: both the panel, Why Eclipse meets the needs of the Embedded Development Lifecycle and the long talk, Service Oriented Device Architecture (SODA), are interesting before I continue with eRCP - Ready for prime time! and Dynamic Languages Toolkit. In the evening, the BOF - Device Software Development Platform (DSDP) TM, DD, NAB, TmL BoF is a must to meet friends and new faces.

On Wednesday, I'll start with Assembling your open C and C++ workbench before another series of Short Talks, of which I'm particularly looking forward to Managing SymbianOS embedded devices using DSDP-TM, Clean Up your Java code, and Tools for Mobile Linux Project: Extending Eclipse into Linux Mobile Devices. The Subversive Talk, Inside Subversive - The Subversion Team Provider, sort of comes for free with these.

Wednesday afternoon has Creating an IP-XACT editor to support the use of IP-XACT for Embedded Debug and Profiling Mobile and Embedded Java Applications in Eclipse IDE as Long Talks from the Embedded track with, before I join the Model-driven embedded device solution development with Eclipse demo which I'll find interesting because it brings together Modeling and Embedded. After that, I'm going to do my own short talk, Target Management: Embedded to Enterprise, which is in the same room as The eRCP Test Harness and the advantages of On-Device testing and Multi-platform development with CDT just a little bit later. After that, I hope I'll not be too sleepy for the C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) Project Meeting in the evening.

On Thursday, I'll start with another Demo: Embedded sytems debugging and profiling using CDT and TPTP-based environment before one of my favorites: Prototyping, Automating, Exploring - Interactively Scripting Eclipse - I've always loved to do scripting. On the next slot, the Short talks Device Debugging (DD) Project Update and Developing in Java ME are interesting and embedded, but I'll also want to see Putting your Build to the Test: Automated JUnit and Performance Testing the Eclipse Way since it's an important part of our build infrastructure. And then there's a nice roundup bringing us back into real life: Solving Real-World Problems with TPTP Static Analysis - what could be better than knowing how to solve real-world problems when one can't believe that EclipseCon is over again?

Martin is the leader of the DSDP - Target Management project. As a software developer and architect, he is responsible for the current Target Manager component in Wind River Workbench. Driven by his strong desire to help people actually use the software he works on, he also contributes ideas for enhancement in many other areas around Eclipse. Martin holds an MS degree in Telematics from the University of Technology Graz/Austria, and has been working on source code analysis and tools development since 1999.
