Did you know that eSWT is now the mostly widely deployed Eclipse code in the world- even more than the Eclipse IDE? The Eclipse community produces several technologies related to mobile user interfaces and new ones have been recently added. This talk will explore these technologies.
In the past year, eRCP project has gotten a new contribution for a completely new platform, the eSWT port on Qt. Besides enabling eRCP on several new platforms including Linux. The Qt port provides means to support some of the e4 features such as
In addition to the new Qt port, eSWT has been improving on its existing platforms as well. New features and improvements on the existing eSWT platforms, such as Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 now greatly improves the usability and styling possibilities of applications. This talk will cover some of them.
The eRCP project have also received a contribution for OpenVG bindings for Java. OpenVG is a 2D hardware accelerated vector graphics technology. We shall demonstrate how applications can get the full benefit of 2D accelerated graphics hardware that is present on mobile devices.
The OpenLCDUI project is aimed to provide the MIDP UI for Symbian phones using the eSWT port(s) available on that platform. We shall take a quick look into this new project and see how an Eclipse UI technology is going to help Symbian Foundation to enable MIDP on its platform.
