Eclipse 4.0 comes with a backward compatlayer so API clean Plug-ins are still functional in Eclipse 4.0 but it also comes with a new programming model (built upon OSGi-Services and Dependency Injection) which makes application development much more modern.

The problem is now that in case you want adopt this programming model because it feels a lot better than th 3.x one you might think you can only target Eclipse 4.0.

This talk will present:
  • How to apply the e4 programming model in 3.x
  • Introduces the idea of a forward compat layer
