The speaker of this talk is the main developer of the well known opensource, SWT based feed-reader RSSOwl. End of 2005 the idea was born to work on a new version involving numerous new technologies, like Java 5, a real database and most important, using the Eclipse Rich Client Platform over a SWT-only solution. The team choose the EclipseCon 2007 to release a first preview version for everyone to play with and give feedback.

In this demo, Benjamin will demonstrate the most interesting aspects of the project, including the internal architecture, the user-interface with it's features and examples on how to easily extend the application using standard Eclipse-Plug-In mechanisms. He will also demonstrate how easy it is to embedd RSSOwl 2 into Eclipse, thereby enriching the IDE with a powerful newsreader. Benjamin will conclude the demo with some details on the roadmap for 2007.

Benjamin Pasero is the developer of the opensource newsreader RSSOwl. He is well experienced in the Eclipse Rich Client Platform with a focus on SWT and JFace and has written a number of articles on this topic, as well as giving workshops at conferences.
