Mixing Eclipse Technologies to create Enterprise Ready Database-RCP-Frontends
This talk will introduce the audience to Eclipse technologies available to write extensible datacentric applications using Eclipse-RCP/EMF/CDO/...
The talk explains people:
- How to make use of eclipse databinding to reduce the amount of code needed to keep the model and ui in sync in conjunction with EMF-Features like EditingDomain and much more
- Keep your application instances in sync with CDO
- How people can easily create their own observables for UI-Widget no binding exists yet
- How to use new databinding features introduced with Eclipse 3.4
- Add custom extension points to RCP-Applications
- Use new JFace-Viewer features introduced in 3.3 and 3.4
The demo code this talk is build around is already available to some extend (See Demo-Code
) and a lot of this code is presented and explained in the talk.
Tom is self-employed and CEO of BestSolution.at Systemhaus Gmbh a software company building applications (RCP, J2EE) for companies around the world. Besides implementing solutions their own BestSolution.at consulted companies to introduce Eclipse Technologies into their software stack by providing its knowledge about Eclipse Technologies and Software Design experience.
Tom is one of the Platform-UI and Nebula committers working on JFace-Viewers, Nebula-Grid and contributed patches to other eclipse projects (EMF, ...). He is the founder of the UFacekit-Project which builds a layer of abstraction above Eclipse-Databinding.
He is a regular contributor to the eclipse newsgroups and received the top contributor award in 2007 for his work on JFace-Viewers.
Tom is part of the E4 project team and has written the EMF based platform prototype used as the starting point for the implementation of the next generation of the Eclipse-Platform.
