The Enterprise Integration Designer is a sub-component of the SOA Tools Platform project at Eclipse. This short talk is intended to bring the audience up to date with the latest news from this effort to provide a high-quality open source tool that allows developers to construct integration solutions using standard Enterprise Integration Diagrams.
Oisín Hurley is an Open Source Tools Architect at Progress Software. He’s the PMC lead for the Eclipse SOA Tools top-level project, and a committer on the Orbit, SCA Tools and WTP Incubator projects.
Keen to land an indoor job with no heavy lifting, Oisín started out on the road to software development in the early 1980’s, when his first task was to write a computer program to sort change for a maths teacher. His software skills quickly outgrew such fripperies, but when the luster wore off the vision of becoming a multimillionaire games developer, he went to TCD in Dublin, Ireland to get a Computer Science degree. After a couple of years of post-graduate doldrums, he was offered a job at the freshly-minted IONA Technologies. Delighted to have achieved his job goal, he enthusiastically accepted and has been there since 1993. He now works for Progress Software, a change that he managed to achieve without even leaving his desk.
His current interests are domain specific languages for enterprise software development and Open Source software.
It turned out that there was a lot more heavy lifting than he expected.
