Clojure is a dynamic and functional programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine and has many other interesting features. Three of these features offer real advantages for Eclipse plugins development:

Clojure could be used in two ways to help Eclipse plugins developers:

This talk will give a short presentation of Clojure and the advantages that make it a real alternative to Java. Then the talk will focus on the first works we made at Anyware Technologies to use Clojure in Eclipse plugins development. And then the potential of a more advanced use of Clojure in Eclipse will be discussed.

Gaetan Morice is head of the Eclipse Products Team at Anyware Technologies. He leads Eclipse based IDE projects for embedded software tooling that involve lots of cool Eclipse technologies such as EMF, CDT, TM and DLTK. He also leads research efforts on alternative JVM languages use in Eclipse plugins development.

This session is part of the curated collection of short talks titled
"You and Your Tools"
