We Can Do Better - IBM's Vision for the Next Generation of Java Runtimes

Session Type: 
Keynote [55 minutes]
Speakers

There is no question that the Java platform is successful. There are mature high performance runtimes, a rich ecosystem with extensive libraries, a tools ecosystem, and broad innovative community supporting the platform. Even with all these great things, software development remains difficult, the reuse of components elusive, and new runtime requirements for cloud, multicore, big data, and security are pushing the limits of these runtimes.

JavaFX, OSGi and e4

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

JavaFX 2 is a new Graphics-Toolkit which allows people to write modern looking UIs. What it lacks are a first class runtime platform which SWT (Eclipse RCP) and Swing (Netbeans Platform) already have.

We'll start by describing how JavaFX can be run unmodified inside Equinox until it gets part of the SDK, describe how you can make use of Eclipse libraries like Eclipse Databinding and use e4 DI to write light weight OSGi+JavaFX applications.
