Today developers face the problem that they have to write applications for different devices and that they have to learn a new UI-API all the time. UFaceKit brings well known core eclipse technologies like JFace-Viewers and Eclipse Databinding to today unsupported platforms like Qt-Jambi, Swing, GWT and helps reusing the Eclipse knowhow. On top of this UFaceKit provides a high-level API following the MVP-Pattern and providing stuff like declarative styling, declarative ui definition and declarative binding hidden behind a platform neutral facade.

Tom is self-employed and CEO of BestSolution.at Systemhaus Gmbh a software company building applications (RCP, J2EE) for companies around the world.
Besides implementing solutions their own BestSolution.at consulted companies to introduce Eclipse Technologies into their software stack by providing its knowledge about Eclipse Technologies and Software Design experience.
Tom is one of the Platform-UI and Nebula committers working on JFace-Viewers, Nebula-Grid and contributed patches to other eclipse projects (EMF, ...). He is the founder of the UFacekit-Project which builds a layer of abstraction above Eclipse-Databinding.

Tom is part of the E4 project team and has written the EMF based platform prototype used as the starting point for the implementation of the next generation of the Eclipse-Platform.
