What's next for e4 and e4 on JavaFX

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

Eclipse 4 is now an established rich client platform with production ready renderers for:

  • SWT shipped by the Eclipse Platform project
  • JavaFX shipped by the e(fx)clipse project

In the last 2 releases not many new features have been implemented inside the base e4 application, while e(fx)clipse has been inventing new features who make the platform more powerful and is going to do more in the next few releases.

The e(fx)clipse team has many interesting ideas who might ore might not adopted by the base e4 platform like:

  • Get rid of the equinox dependency
  • Make OSGi a optional dependency and allow developers to run on pure Java9 modules
  • Implement a editor framework on top of pure e4

In this talk we'll demostrate first prototypes of what we've come up with and discuss our future plans
