Mapping foreign languages concepts, such as the always available runtime, to Eclipse idioms has proven to be difficult. We address the challenges and their solutions in this talk about building a Smalltalk IDE in Eclipse.

Our talk will present the issues we have experienced and how we have overcome them. It will also highlight deficiencies we found in Eclipse, as well as some of solutions.

Some examples of these issues include:

We will also demonstrate the fully working system.
