Achim Lörke is the project lead of the Eclipse Jubula project. His company, BREDEX GmbH, is an Eclipse member since 2007 and a Strategic Developer Member since 2010. Achim also represents BREDEX GmbH on the Board of Directors and the Planning and Architecture Council.
His personal favorites:
- Jnario – BDD for Java, obvious I'm into software testing and this is a way cool new approach to unit tests.
- Effective Mockito in a modular world, and while we are at testing Holger is a great advocate on mockups. Integrating mockups into OSGi is a real life saver.
- Desktop apps on tablet devices, my company has been a champion of cross platform development for 25 years. We continue fighting the battle on mobile devices.
- Null-Safety on Steroids, any chance to reduce the dreaded NPE should be taken.
- Living on the Edge: Supporting Native e4 Contributions to Eclipse 4, well, e4 is finally out in the wild. Don't be scared, come and learn how to use it.
You told us you wanted to pre-schedule BoFs, and we listened!
ECE BoFs may now be submitted using this BoF submission form. (Note that you must be logged in to submit a BoF.)
On Tuesday, there are two BoF sessions: 20:00 - 21:00 and 21:00 - 22:00.
On Wednesday, the two session times are 19:00 - 20:00 and 20:00 - 21:00.
We will accept and schedule BoF submissions as they come in; if you have any questions, please email us.
Martin Lippert, VMware/SpringSource, worked with Eclipse since its first public release 1.0 and used it as an IDE and as a platform for building highly modular and plugin-oriented business applications. He built bytecode-weaving extensions for various Eclipse versions and runtimes and is now co-leading the team behind the Spring Tool Suite at VMware.
Here are his favorite talks for this year's ECE:
- The Future of Eclipse
Eclipse needs to continuously innovate and improve itself as a platform, as an IDE, and as an ecosystem. So looking ahead at the next challenges for Eclipse is important, and brainstorming about what might (need to) come up after the 4.x releases is at the heart of such a conference like EclipseCon and could be inspiring for all of us.
- Orion - a browser based tools integration platform
The Orion project at Eclipse is one of the most promising and inspiring projects at Eclipse, at least from my point of view. Looking at the browser as a runtime environment is one of the natural choices when doing software engineering today, and thinking about software development tools themselves as running in the browser it part of our all future, I think. Orion moves ahead into this direction.
- A regular day as an Eclipse Committer
A look behind the scenes is always interesting, especially if you would like to get involved in the development of an existing project at Eclipse or maybe even think about proposing a new project. And I am sure Benjamin and Steffen will give a lively and interesting talk on how much fun working on Eclipse projects can be.
- Tycho adoption: Lessons learned, tips and tricks from the 1st line of front
Tycho is becoming a standard for building Eclipse-based applications, p2 repositories, plugins, features, distributions, RCP apps, and whatever artifact you can think of. And adopting a new build system is not always as easy as you might think. So its definitely worth to listen to those experiences before doing it yourself.
- Eclipse Spykit - A Handy Tool for Startup Analysis
Analyzing performance, especially startup performance, is an important work to do. But it can be really painful to figure out what exactly is happening at startup - and why. I am looking forward to this talk on the Eclipse Spykit to help you with this.
Jonas Helming, EclipseSource Munich, is project lead of the EMF Client Platform and the EMFStore project . As an active part of the Eclipse community, he regularly writes articles and blog entries, he organizes Democamps and speaks at various Eclipse events.
Here are his picks and why he selected them:
- The Future of Eclipse, as innovation at Eclipse should always continue.
- Highly Interactive Mobile Apps with RAP, because I think cross-platform is really hot!
- GEF4 - Share and Enjoy..., after e4 GEF4 may be another revolution.
- An Inspirational World Tour: Remarkable Applications Built on Eclipse, I like to see what people develop based on Eclipse.
- Finally and even though I organize this one: The Modeling Symposium, because it always provides an interesting overview about emerging technologies.
Alexander Nyßen, of itemis AG, is an active committer of the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) project and a regular contributor to various Eclipse modeling projects. He is strongly committed to Eclipse and regularly attends and speaks at EclipseCon conferences and Eclipse demo camps.
Here are the talks he thinks you should attend and why:
- The Future of Eclipse because we should all be concerned about the future of our platform
- JavaFX 2.1 Renderer for the Eclipse 4 Application Platform: A Perfect Marriage? because JavaFX might become a true alternative to SWT
- EMFCompare 2.0: Scaling to Millions because model comparison is one of the major modeling concerns that have not been satisfactory solved by Eclipse yet, and this seems to be a promising approach to overcome this
- E++: Migrating Plug-ins from Eclipse 3.x to 4.2 because e4 is the way to go - for all of us
- m2e, an exercise in mixing oil and water because Maven/Tycho is the only alternative for release engineering and profound IDE support for it is a major concern
Christian Campo is the ECE 2012 program committee chair. (Some of you know him as the project lead for the Eclipse Riena project or as PMC lead on Eclipse RT. Christian is a busy guy.) As PC chair, Christian is very familiar with the talks that were submitted this year. Here are some of his favorites:
- Jnario - BDD for Java Jnario is a test framework for Java that allows you to write test specifications in a readable DSL and use them for testing and documentation.
- Living on the Edge: Supporting Native e4 Contributions to Eclipse 4 Of course Eclipse 4 is an important topic this year, and here is an extended talk from two of the key Eclipse 4 committers, teaching us how to use it.
- An Inspirational World Tour: Remarkable Applications Built on Eclipse Jon Dearden was an early pick this year with his talk. He won a design prize in the Mars Rover competition at EclipseCon 2010, so I have high expectations for this talk, where Jon highlights what he thinks are significant Eclipse applications.
- Welcome to the New Web We have great keynote speakers this year. Most notably, I look forward to Chris Heilmann and his vision of HTML5 and the new web.
