Moving around equipment for oil rigs can be extremely expendsive - especially if something goes wrong in the process. Consequently all operations are modeled and simulated before anything actually takes places.

The models are rather complicated as they include so diverse data as the form of the bodies (ships, prams,, etc), the physical properties of all the involved connectors (wires, chains, etc) and the environment (wind, waves, etc). All in all a model can be several mebabytes of persisted data.

And how better to model the real world than via an EMF and Eclipse RCP based application?

This talk describes the SIMA application from Marintek and how a number of Eclipse technologies was used to make a very comprehensive modeling workbench for the oil industry along with generation of small film strips that illustrates the operation to take place.

Tonny Madsen is a log term user and developer of the Eclipse platform and has among other things reported more than 100 bugs for 7 different major releases (and still counting). Tonny has 7 years of experience with the Eclipse platform (since version 2.0) and more than 20 years of experience with software development and system architecture.

Now, Tonny is the CEO of The RCP Company, an independent software development company that is specialized in mentoring, training, consultancy, development, and independent products based on the Eclipse™ platform, Rich Client Platform, and the corresponding technologies and tools.

Tonny is also the chairman of Eclipse.dk, the Danish Eclipse Society.

Frode Meling is a hydrodynamicist and long-time Java developer. He currently works as Research Director for the Marine Operations and Simulation department at MARINTEK - the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute.
