What makes software ready for large deployments? Is it the value of the tooling or how easily users can access the tools that have been built? Eclipse today has a rich set of tools available; however, finding and using those tools can be a challenge. This talk reveals what we have done to enable a large deployment of Eclipse within our enterprise. The primary change is to shift from end-user empowered software distribution (a.k.a. today's update manager) to team-empowered software distribution. Topics to be covered include: We will discuss the various extensions we've made on top of Eclipse to completely change the deployment architecture allowing the Eclipse-unaware and Eclipse-elite alike to leverage a rich stack of tools. There will be a short demonstration of the platform to highlight the concepts discussed.

Timothy Webb works for Cisco Systems focused on Eclipse-based technology deployments across the company. He is the proposed lead for the Maya project proposal and currently leads a team in Cisco to build out an enablement and distribution platform for RCP-based tooling; with the goal to enable adoption of Eclipse-based technologies by engineers who may have no prior knowledge of the platform. Previous work with Eclipse includes leading creation of a test automation platform which integrates a testing IDE coupled with automated distribution of testing services via remote OSGi containers. With over eight years working at Cisco, he has filled many roles including architecting a massively scalable broadband provisioning system and for the past four years leading innovation which utilizes the Eclipse platform and a plethora of associated technologies.
