p2 in the Enterprise (Presented by eBay)

Session Type: 
Sponsored Session
Speakers

Remember the good old days of the drop-ins folder in Eclipse to add additional tools to your Eclipse installation? eBay remembers them all to well. While the drop-ins folder made it easy to maintain individual installations of Eclipse, it was quite a challenge to maintain a large enterprise wide installed base, and keep them constantly updated, with this approach.

Pushing Eclipse to the extreme - lessons in breaking UI rules

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Ever felt that Eclipse has not changed much? That your plugin needs to do things differently than follow the Eclipse conventions? And have you felt the pains of breaking these Eclipse rules?

In trying to work hard on building something users want, we at Architexa have broken almost every rule of the user experience (and the underlying frameworks) that are part of Eclipse. And we have felt the pains of doing so.

For now 5 years, Ericsson has been providing its development teams with an in-house Eclipse support group whose mandate is to smoothen the distribution of Eclipse and help our 10,000 users with their day-to-day operations.
In this talk we reflect on both the whys and the hows of our team. For the whys, we explain the genesis of the team, its evolution, and the services offered today. For the hows, we give an overview of the challenges we met:

Google Analytics for Eclipse Plugins

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

It's always fun to see the download statistics for your plugin, but it is even more fun to see live who is actually using your plugin, how they installed it and where they are from.

Getting that up and running can require a lot of bandwidth and infrastructure but luckily there already exist a well known analytics service called Google Analytics that can do this for you with all the graphs and earth-plots you want - even animated.

A tale about a Big SVN to Git Migration

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

In November 2012 I helped the giant JBoss Tools repo containing 400+ eclipse plugins, 2+ millions line of code with 7+ year of history migrate from SVN into a multitude of Git repositories.

Most existing large migrations I could find info about was about the size as one of our 30+ modules in JBoss tools and it turned out the advice in most of these just did not cope with a migration as large as this.

During this tale I cover what tools I examined, rejected and in the end selected to do the migration. I will outline the migration process we did as a team, what things Git enabled immediately and which things we are moving towards now that Git have opened up for a more flexible build and development model and structure.

Eclipse Seamless JavaScript Unit Testing

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

One of the biggest challenges of many enterprise web applications is the support on the different browsers with different versions. JavaScript code that runs on the Safari browser does not necessarily mean it will run correctly on the IE or the Firefox or the Google chrome browsers. This challenge is inherited from the lack of testing the JavaScript code that lives in the web application from day one.
