Automating the consumption of Eclipse for internal use

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Supporting a large user base implies catering to a lot of different needs.

In Ericsson's case this means building over 20 different eclipse distributions and creating a corporate wide p2 repository to make it easy for our users to get all the plugins they need.
To achieve the necessary customization of each eclipse distro with a high degree of automation, a wide variety of technologies has been used: product files, jenkins, tycho, jbehave, p2 tools, etc.

In this talk, we give an overview of our semi-automated workflow, where each technology fits and give you our tips and tricks.

Building a VM based Custom Application in an Agile CI Environment in a Timely Manner

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

When virtualization and agility intersect, there are 2 competing concerns. Agility best practices include continuous integration with a rapid build feedback loop. With virtualization - self contained, manageable and reproducible VMs are often large in size. This can make rapid creation, when application source code changes, a time-consuming task that can interfere with the need for a rapid build feedback loop.
