Dan Rubel

A definitive, start-to-finish overview of building commercial-quality plug- ins for Eclipse 3.2 and above. The instructors don't merely introduce the basics; they'll show you how to add the sophistication and "polish" that your end users demand.

In this newly updated and expanded class, you'll learn the fundamentals of plug-in development, with specific solutions for the challenges participants will most likely encounter. Session content is based on the latest edition of the best-selling book co-authored by Clayberg and Rubel, "Eclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins," and is split between lecture and hands-on lab work.

This is a "double short" tutorial, twice as long as a normal short tutorial, and thus requires two "short tutorial units" when registering. Be sure to register for both part 1 and part 2.
