Lessons Learned Writing the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Learn best practices for Eclipse plug-in development that took us years to figure out!

The AWS Toolkit for Eclipse brings the AWS cloud to the Eclipse workbench, allowing developers to develop, debug, and deploy Java applications on the AWS platform. For three years, we've worked to integrate AWS services into your Eclipse development workflow. We started with a small seed of functionality for managing EC2 instances, and today support nine services and counting. We learned a lot on the way, and we'd like to share!

EMF Dos and Don’ts

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

EMF is very powerful and most of the time fairly simple to use, but of course there are rocks and shallows: Why are there so many Adapters on my EObjects? After overriding some generated code the XML serialization stopped working? My subpackages are not recognized by framework X? EcoreUtil.delete is dead slow?
These are the kinds of questions we will answer. For each Do or Don´t we will provide an example and a solution on how to implement or overcome it respectively.
