Python (specifically CPython) is heavily used in science, in part thanks to its fast powerful libraries such as numpy and scipy. It is still one of the best ways to handle and analyze numerical data today. While Python is for science, Java is for Eclipse but in industry there is a need for an optimal way to exchange data between the two.
Scripting eclipse has never been so easy. Write and execute scripts right in your beloved IDE.
During this talk we will
* write helper scripts for eclipse
* attach scripts to the UI
* write scripted unit tests
* extend scripting capabilities with our own libraries
* dynamically load java classes from the workspace
We do not start language wars, so we support them all (JS, Python, Groovy, Ruby, Java)
