A journey through Bndtools for PDE users

You may know the story: you develop OSGi applications with PDE and you are willing to give Bnd a try, but you can't find access to the different concepts they are using. The reasons to change, can be plenty and the hazards on the way as well. Here you will get a quick view in the world of Bnd with dos and don'ts and an idea on how to migrate your project.

A New Eclipse Public License

The Eclipse Foundation will be publishing a new version of the Eclipse Public License in 2017. This talk will explore:

  • Why was a new version necessary ?
  • What are the significant differences between the original and new versions?
  • What are the new features of the license that may matter to my project?
  • How can I apply the EPLv2 to my existing EPL-licensed project?

A new system-level programming language for the IoT (sponsored by Bosch)

Motivation

The Internet of Things (IoT) revolves around the development, mass-production and deployment of wireless embedded sensor devices. A plethora of prototyping platforms for exploring and developing those sensor nodes exists. However many of those toolkits do not scale beyond prototyping or offer an inferior development experience compared to other domains, e.g. mobile-apps or the web.

A Team Contributing Full-time to Open Source Projects - A Primer on Making It Happen in Your Company

Yes, you know this happens in quite a few cases. Like in companies that open source and contribute a significant part of what they create for their own needs - think Google, Facebook, PayPal and the like. Like in companies with a primary focus on an open source product as Mozilla for example. Like in companies that make heavy use of a specific open source platform or tool - and decide to give back through contributing to its development. Or like in working on academic projects funded by public money where the outcome is open sourced. But...

About Tycho, Maven, p2 and Target-Platforms: From Pain to Best Practice

This talk shares our experience about setting up Tycho and Maven. Using Tycho and Maven in your build infrastructure can be very beneficial, but first it needs to be set up. In fact, this is the real challenge. Unfortunately, there is no real state-of-the-art or best practice about how to use this technology. Particularly, only little documentation exists. Most likely this is a consequence of everyone’s individual project requirements and thus not allowing for the one ultimate answer.

Advanced Oomph Setup Authoring

Creating good Oomph Setups is not trivial, but from the existing setups in Oomph's default catalogue users can learn much about some advanced features of Oomph. In this session I will show several examples from available Oomph setups that can be used for the definition of own setups. Attendees will learn about multi-project setups, collecting useful workspace preferences, dynamic working sets, launching initial builds after project import, managing modular target platforms and other useful stuff.

Avoid disorientation with Ferret, a powerful search tool for the Eclipse IDE

Software developers spend much of their time exploring the source code of their software systems, seeking to understand how it works and to assess the implications of making a change.  But many developers report occasionally becoming disoriented during this exploration, where they become "lost" and are unable to recall what they were doing and why they were looking at some program element. Becoming disoriented is frustrating, and recovering from disorientation is difficult.

Big-Data reactive streams and OSGi

One of the basic requirement to enable big-data analytics is a rational and effective approach to data ingestion. In long running projects the need arises to evolve the domain model and this potentially affects data quality. As a consequence, the concept of versioning is crucial to keep data centric systems consistent: the importance of service dynamicity and good modularity support in a sound data ingestion workflow implementation cannot be easily overestimated.

Blockchain, Ethereum and Business Applications

This session is geared towards an audience interested in blockchain technology that would like learn more with a hands-on approach.

First, some background on basic concepts as peer-to-peer networks, mining and distributed consens is provided. Then, smart contracts and the Solidity language are introduced and demonstrated using a local/private blockchain.

Bndtools and Maven: A brave new world

The Bndtools project is the foremost IDE for OSGi development, with a powerful workspace model and interactive debug sessions. Historically Bndtools has been opinionated (and restrictive) about how you build your workspace, but with the new releases of bnd and Bndtools 3.4.0 things have changed dramatically.

Using the new Maven plugins from the bnd project you can now get all the bnd goodness you know and love when using Maven, and when using Bndtools you still get incremental building and interactive debug! This talk will walk you through the new Maven plugins from bnd, and how to get the most out of your new favourite IDE.

Building form-based UIs with EMF Forms - 101

EMF Forms is a framework for developing high-quality, form-based UIs quickly and easily. The forms support general data entry and modification, be it for business applications or development tools. EMF Forms dramatically reduces the effort of UI development while providing a rich feature set that can handle very complex use cases.
EMF Forms is already widely use by a large developer base in various application domains, but we do not want to overlook potential new developers!

CDI and OSGi: So happy together!

CDI is a cornerstone of JavaEE development. The OSGi Alliance's Enterprise Expert Group has undertaken to develop a specification for how CDI should interact with the OSGi framework and service registry. This talk will review the current progress of this specification and try to lightly demonstrate it's utility.

CDT: Where are we? Where do we go from here?

The IDE world is changing rapidly. There are some strong new IDEs that try to support C++, but as much as I like them for other languages and platforms, they just can't compete with CDT at working with native (real native) code. However, at the same time, we realize that our lead won't last forever and we have to consider where we need to go next to remain competative.

Complex Event Processing of An Electric Car In A Simple Way

In this talk we will present a unique dashboard for a prototype electric car that is used for displaying basic information such as motor functionalities, speed, charging visualization, as well as novel real-time data visualization for our embedded data stream processor with complex event processing capabilities.This dashboard is more than a graphical interface because of its strong back-end functionalities with the help of Eclipse plugins.
