Eclipse 3.x to Eclipse 4.x migration

This session has been declined by the session moderation team.
In this tutorial we will show how to migrate an existing Eclipse 3.x based application to Eclipse 4.   The following topics will be covered:
  • Identify the components that need to be migrated
  • Soft migration (use the compatibility layer)
    • Updating the target platform and the product definition
    • Migration of views
    • Migration of handlers, commands and menus, contributing to the application model
    • Dealing with selections
    • Remove usage of internal API and platform.ui code
    • Replace Extension Points with OSGi declarative services
  • Extended soft migration (still using the compatibility layer)
    • Migration of perspectives and part descriptors
  • Full migration
    • Creation of the application model
    • Bringing the pieces together and remove all Eclipse 3.x remains
  After this tutorial you should be able to migrate an Eclipse 3.x based application to an Eclipse 4 based application with and without using the combatibility layer.   To get started a sample Eclipse 3.x based application will be provided that covers the topics of this tutorial.
