Peter Centgraf

Recent versions of SWT and JFace have supported the concept of a Virtual Table, which loads the contents of its rows in a lazy fashion as they are needed for display to the user. This approach is a natural fit for Rich Internet Applications, which must load data across an often congested global network. This talk will describe a practical approach for using virtual tables in a multi-tier enterprise application, along with the pitfalls discovered in almost 2 years of design iterations. Learn how to provide the holy grail of the RIA: a distributed application with all the features and responsiveness of a best-of-breed desktop application.

Peter Centgraf is a Software Designer/Engineer with RJLee Group, Inc. in Pittsburgh, PA. He has 3 years of experience developing applications with SWT and RCP for research and commercial purposes. He holds a Master of Human-Computer Interaction degree from Carnegie Mellon University and dual BS/BA degrees in Computer Science and Psychology from Rice University. His contributions to Eclipse include 2 years of active Bugzilla comments and several patches to the JFace DataBinding framework. He is also the new maintainer of the Nebula CDateTime project.
