The best way to extend the power of Eclipse-based tools is by building plug-ins. You understand plug-in development for Eclipse 3.x, but what's different in e4? This hands-on workshop provides the best education from the top experts: the guys who literally wrote the book on the subject. The presenters will compare and contrast the Eclipse 3.x API you know and love side-by-side with the new e4 API. You will learn how to take Eclipse 3.x code and modify it to work appropriately in e4 . The workshop is split between lecture and hands-on lab work, so bring your laptop and prepare to get up to your elbows in code.
