In the past few years the Eclipse Mylyn project has seen massive growth in both user and ISV adoption. Availability of high quality task repository connectors has helped perpetuate Mylyn's success. However, many communities and companies that have expressed interest in Mylyn integration do not yet have access to a Mylyn connector. In this short talk, attendees will get a crash course in Mylyn connector implementation.

The talk will begin with a quick overview of the core APIs, their roles and design rationale. This is followed by a rundown of the ingredients of Mylyn connector construction from retrieving your first task, forming queries, and leveraging the generic attribute architecture to provide rich offline editing and change notifications. By the end of the talk attendees will have learned how to use the key extension points and extend required classes for building a task repository connector.

Steffen Pingel is a software developer at Tasktop Technologies. When he is not riding his bike in the beautiful mountains surrounding Vancouver he enjoys working on Mylyn-based tools that keep developers focused and productive. He became a committer on the project in 2006 while completing his degree in Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Steffen is fascinated by the quality and extensibility of the Eclipse platform which keeps inspiring him to improve the Mylyn framework.
