BahBahChat: Implement a Multi-Frontend Chat Application based on Eclipse Scout
Tutorial [3.5 hours]
After a brief introduction to Eclipse Scout and building a first "hello world" application, we start with the explanation of the provided initial BahBahChat workspace.
You will learn how to create server services to send your chat messages, listeners to handle the incoming data on a client and UI elements to present it to the user. This can be achieved efficiently using the Scout SDK which is seamlessly integrated in your Eclipse IDE.
At that stage you will also experience one of the advantages of Scout: Using the application as a desktop (SWT, Swing) or web (RAP) client does not require writing any UI specific code!
To round up we export the running application to a WAR file ready to be deployed to your application server at home.
