Runtime management with p2

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Since 2008 Eclipse p2 has been THE provisioning platform for the complete Eclipse project. Several years later this hasn't changed, but p2 still hasn't found its way into the OSGi based servers out there. Examples of p2 adoption on the RT front are Eclipse Virgo and Eclipse Gyrex. One reason for the low adoption rates is certainly the high entry barrier. Eclipse IDE and the Tycho maven plugin provide sufficient tooling for authoring content into p2 repositories, however managing it in the scope of a server runtime is still hard. There isn't a single tool providing unified experience.

Now that I've Got a Model - Where's my Application?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Models are efficient for capturing enterprise knowledge at a high level of abstraction, independent of technical concerns. Using the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) I can generate an Eclipse editor for my model on a click of a button and instantly play with it. Once I've iterated on the model I need to develop an application around it to put it to use. Now I realize that modeling didn't eliminate any technical aspects, it just relieved me from thinking about them early.
