What every Eclipse developer should know about Eclipse 4 (e4)
This tutorial will give you a jumpstart into the new concepts of the Eclipse 4 Application Platform. If you have previous experience developing with RCP 3.x, but limited or no experience with e4, this tutorial is designed for you.
Based on a sample RCP application, we introduce the most important features of the new platform, such as the Application Model, Dependency Injection and the new Programming Model. The introduction is completed by an overview of the most important services available, such as the selection or preference services. All topics include hands-on examples that we’ll work through together. Finally, we demonstrate how innovations from Eclipse 4 can be integrated into existing applications based on Eclipse 3.x and introduce possible migration paths.
This session is a revised submission of the Eclipse Europe tutorial and is based on the e4 tutorial article series: http://eclipsesource.com/blogs/2012/05/10/eclipse-4-final-sprint-part-1-...
