Beyond basic forms with Sapphire

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

You wouldn't think of developing a business application using an assembly language, so why are you still developing complex forms with low-level widget libraries? In this talk, we will compare and contrast traditional SWT development with Sapphire's declarative model-driven approach.

Sapphire is a user interface development framework that aims to speed up and simplify development of complex interfaces while simultaneously raising the bar on the features that users can expect from the interface. Instead of composing interfaces from widgets like text boxes and labels, Sapphire developers lay out property editors and let the framework take care of the widgets, data binding and all the expected bells and whistles.
