Making with Eclipse · Standard
Wednesday, 13:00, 20 minutes | Ballroom BC
Building a trade blotter on top of Eclipse's databinding framework which is responsible for providing large amounts of continually updating tabular data, it quickly becomes clear that this usage pattern pushes the stock framework a bit past its comfort zone for performance.
This talk will provide a brief introduction to the databinding framework and share tips for how to increase performance of the current iteration of the databinding framework. In addition, I'll share my experiences in gathering performance data using tools like BTrace, DTrace and VisualVM's profiling tool. Finally, I'll examine the performance of the SWT Table widget compared to alternate table implementations like NatTable and XViewer.
