Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 
Beginner

With Neon.1, we ship the 11th release of EMF Forms, a framework to efficiently build form-based UIs for showing and modifying data. Since version 1.0.0, we have completed over 1000 feature requests and bug reports, 33 contributors have submitted 10k commits and developed over 600k lines of code. EMF Forms continues to be one of the most active projects at Eclipse.
It is now time to a wrap-up: In this talk, we will discuss the most important features from 11 releases and how they are typically used in practise. The talk will be a mixture of slides and live demonstrations. We will also highlight important design decisions, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Further, we will share our experience when adopting EMF Forms in various projects.
Finally, we will look forward and highlight our plan for the future, including the upcoming major release 2.0.0, alternative renderers and more.
