Feeling a little overwhelmed? Eclipse is a vast and rich ecosystem of technologies, concepts, and buzz words. It's a challenge to get started. This session is about developing plug-ins and rich applications that run on top of Eclipse. You'll need to bring some Java coding knowledge. The session will supply the basics of how plug-ins and apps work in Eclipse 3.x and 4.2, and how you put it all together. We'll discuss best practises to follow and hazards to watch out for. Finally, we'll touch on deployment of your cool new features and products.

Let's write code not configure servers!

Session Type: 
Tutorial [3.5 hours]
Speakers

Tired of waiting weeks to get a server or spinning up and configuring your virtual servers. Come learn about how PaaS can make you into a happier and more productive coder. We will start by teaching you the meaning behind some acronyms you see thrown around - IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Next we turn to PaaS and talk about why it is a developer's dream come true. From there we will use Red Hat's Open Source PaaS, OpenShift, to teach you how easy it is to get started with a Java web application in the cloud. JBoss Developer Tools does a fantastic job integrating OpenShift.

How to compile a Microsoft Windows RCP installer with NSIS using Linux

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

No doubt, Eclipse and RCP applications are marvelous. It's no big deal for developers to install RCP applications and to fix problems like a missing Java Runtime Environment (JRE). But customers are most often not in the way skilled as developers are. In my experience, they are confused if you tell them just to download, unzip and start the RCP application. Where ist the installer? Where are the menu entries? Where is the uninstaller? In a special way, Microsoft Windows users are focused. Are they stupid or lazy? I don't think so. They are used to install software by clicking on setup files.
