In this session we will present two different case studies about how DTP is being used in commercial applications and the potential for DTP in RCP applications.
First... Motorola uses the Data Tools Project components in their commercial MOTODEV Studio for Android product. Data Tools delivers an effective and visually attractive interface for developers who want to view and modify SQLite databases on the Android emulator and developer phones. In this session, Motorola engineers will describe how they integrated the DTP components in record time and made their Product Manager understand why open source is so cool.
Lastly, as with every release, the DTP team has worked to make DTP more RCP-friendly. Though we didn't quite get as far as we'd have liked, we have reduced the footprint a bit and created a new RCP workspace for doing database tasks such as connecting to databases, executing queries, inspecting results, creating database objects, and so on. In this part of the talk, we'll cover a checkpoint as to where we are with RCP support, what we're getting into DTP for Helios, and screen shots or a demo (if time allows) of the RCP application we'll have available for developers to extend.
Brian Fitzpatrick (aka "Fitz") is a software engineer with Red Hat, Inc., who has contributed to the Data Tools Project (DTP) since its inception. Until recently, Brian's focus has mainly been on Eclipse tooling development for Sybase. This past year he joined Red Hat and has been working on cool SOA tooling. He hopes to continue helping out with DTP and elsewhere in Eclipse for the forseeable future. Currently he serves on the DTP PMC as well as as being the Team Lead for both the Connectivity and Enablement sub-projects within DTP.
Ruth Soliani is a software project manager at the Eldorado Research Institute (an Associate Member of Eclipse Foundation). She holds a BS in Computer Science from University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Ruth works at Eldorado since 2002 and has been working on Eclipse-based development tools since 2004. Currently she manages the development teams of MOTODEV Studio for Android and of DSDP/Sequoyah project, sponsored by Motorola Inc.
