Andrew Niefer

Come in with *your* code and leave with a zip containing your built artifacts.

PDE Build is the recommended tool for performing stand-alone builds of standard Eclipse artifacts such as RCP products, bundles and features. Eclipse itself is built using PDE build. During this full day tutorial the presenters will:

(1) In order to talk about problems that are the most relevant to the audience, attendees will be encouraged to send their problems to the presenters a few weeks before the tutorial.
(2) Because each participant will be working on its own build, the presenters will try to meet with all attendees before the tutorial to ensure people can get going.

Pascal is a developer with IBM Rational Software at the IBM Ottawa labs (formerly Object Technology International) since 2002, and has been developing PDE Build since then. He has also played a key role in the development of the OSGi based runtime from the first prototypes developed in the Equinox project to its integration in Eclipse. Pascal holds a Master degree from the ESSI (France) and a PhD from the University of Nice (France).

Andrew is a developer with IBM Rational Software in the Ottawa lab and is a commiter on both the PDE Build and Equinox projects. Before joining the Eclipse platform team, he worked on the Eclipse CDT project. Andrew holds a BMath degree from the University of Waterloo.

Sonia Dimitrov obtained a BSc PT from the University of Ottawa in 1994. She left a career as a Physical Therapist to pursue her interests in technology, and joined IBM Rational at the IBM Ottawa labs as a Release Engineer in 2001. Sonia has been an Eclipse committer since its inception and continues to contribute to the evolution of Eclipse platform release engineering and build processes.
