A Multi-Frontend Chat Application based on Eclipse Scout (continued)
We demonstrate how to implement your own small chat application with Eclipse Scout. Using the BahBah chat example application we will see how a Scout application supports multiple frontends such as desktop, web, tablet and mobile with a single code base.
After a brief introduction to Scout we start with the explanation of an initial workspace providing user management and authentication against a data base. 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.
