A Kernel of Truth: KConfig menuing and kernel configuration in Eclipse

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

The KConfig specification presents unique challenges to an Eclipse developer. Linux Kernel, coreboot, seaBios and other very "close to the metal" type projects generate their configurations through a tree of KConfig files which describe the variables used in configuration and building as well as the look and feel of the menu. There are two primary problems that need to be overcome in the usage of KConfig inside Eclipse.

Rapid and sustainable UI design with e4 and wazaabi

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

E4, its modeled workbench and wazaabi share the same conceptual approach: both are are based upon live EMF models.
They mutually complete each other. The modeled workbench limits its action to the rendering of high level eclipse parts while wazaabi provides graphical components which make it possible to describe the content of form, property sheet and so on.
Moreover, wazaabi includes a live declarative binding mechanism between EMF models (UI and/or business models).
Wazaabi provides also a set of tools which ease the work of the developer and reduces the cost of maintenance.
