Build your EPUBs with Eclipse, and read them too

Session Type: 
Standard [25 minutes]

Schedule info


EPUB is rapidly becoming a preferred format for electronic publications and is thus supported by many reading systems; from desktop applications to handheld devices such as Android or iOS driven ones. The newest specifications which allows very rich publications is bound to make the format even more popular. EPUB is now used for everything from romantic novels to highly technical content. Maybe even for your next user guide?

Assembling EPU files correctly is a fairly complex task. It sometimes involves deep knowledge of the specification, even when using currently available authoring software. This process has become much easier with new tooling for Eclipse which will be presented and demonstrated. It will also be shown how publications of this format can be read from within your Eclipse based IDE.
