Constructor injection and other new features for Declarative Services 1.4

Declarative Services is the best way to provide and consume OSGi services when writing bundles. The OSGi Alliance continues to improve this key specification with new features making it better and more simple to use. For the R7 release, Declarative Services (DS) 1.4 will add constructor injection to the existing method and field injection support. Component property types can now be used to annotate components to set component property values in a type-safe manner. Learn about these and other new features in DS 1.4 to see how OSGi services are easy to use!

Create a programming language that the whole company can understand

This talk is about the solution that building a domain specific language (DSL) can bring. The problem that many companies are facing right now is not being able to communicate with their system efficiently.
Using the language workbench JetBrains MPS, you can create powerful DSLs. I will show how the development of a software product is done today and examples of DSLs improving the whole process. We will analyze the situations when building a DSL add value and when not.

Creating an open source information architecture for the IoT (sponsored by Red Hat)

The IoT arena is exploding with a diverse set of technologies, features, standards, and architectures, each of which promises to be the panacea and the path forward for future enterprise adoption. However, given the speed of change, innovation, and the wide variety of use cases that IoT enables, it would be highly unlikely for any single proprietary IoT solution maintained by any one vendor to keep up with all the new standards, requirements, and technologies to be incorporated.

Data Analytics with OSGi – Experience, Challenges, Solutions

Augmenting connectivity and device management with certain data analytics features helps you to bring your IoT projects to the next level. In principle, there are two major integration paths: (1) Get the data from the devices (i.e. the edges), transfer it to a backend, and run analytics jobs on top. (2) Run simple analytics jobs e.g. on the edges and transfer only the results to (device managing systems in) the backend. In the past months, we have explored these options by integrating some of the Bosch IoT Analytics functionalities with the ProSyst stack.

Debug Java code like a Pro

Writing code only comes second when talking about the developer work. The main and first task is reading and debugging. For that purpose, the Eclipse Java development tools are wonderful. Its most powerful tools are often unknown though. This talk will help you unleash this power and help you debug your Java code like a pro. The talk will also cover the new debugging features coming with Eclipse 4.8 (code name Oxygen, released last June). So, even if you're an experienced Java programmer, you will learn some tips and tricks.

Developing business web applications with form-based UIs

Many business applications are data-driven and require viewing and entering data in forms… countless forms. Unfortunately, writing HTML5-based web forms manually is still error-prone and tedious, even with the help of modern web application frameworks like Angular. A form may seem simple at first, but you usually need to add live validation and error markers, rule-based visibility, input restrictions, and the like. As you can imagine, it quickly gets out of hand. Finally, when you have many of these forms the code becomes unmaintainable.

Do Architects Need Soft Skills?

At a certain stage of your technical career journey you usually reach a crossroad with two main options ahead. One leads to engaging more and more with team leadership and project management responsibilities. The other option is the path to the architect's role - and it is broadly regarded as the "pure" technical way forward. I've seen that IT professionals choosing the second path very often underestimate the fact that the Architect role differs a lot from all other technical implementation roles.

Docker Container Build/Run/Debug Support for C/C++ Projects

This talk will discuss the new plug-in support being added to the CDT project to build C/C++ projects in Docker Containers for Linux, MacOS, and Windows.  After building, the user can run the executables in a Docker Container just as if they were built locally.  The new support is completely optional and allows building existing CDT projects either locally or in one or more Docker Containers.  C/C++ indexing of the source code is supported using the Docker Container header files where appropriate.

Dockerized Java based micro-services on resource-constrained devices: the performance perspective

There is a current trend in the IoT domain to redefine the role of the IoT Gateway - once a simple communication relay with some application specific processing - into a generic purpose edge device supporting diverse device protocols, multiple applications, a variety of cloud connections, and sometimes even multi-tenant situations. In fact, recent low-cost hardware based on multi-core ARM and Intel SoCs (such as the Raspberry Pi 3, the Odroid-C2, or the UP board) seems to have the required capabilities.

Document Generation with M2Doc

Not everyone uses modeling tools and the awesome work one can do with these tools must be conveyed to the outside world, for instance, in the form of documents.

The M2Doc technology enables the generation of Office Open XML documents from Ecore models and Sirius representations.

DSL Editors Support in Eclipse RAP

This talk is a feedback on the use of the Eclipse Remote Application Platform (RAP) for the development of web applications and workbenches. We will present the work we have carried out so far, in particular the initial contribution of the styled text widget, the integration of Domain-Specific Language (DSL) editors with Dirigible Web IDE, and the integration with other frameworks such as EMF, Xtext, Diff/Merge, and Phaser. Finally we will give our feedback on the advantages and the limitations that we met.

Easier Smart Home development with simulators and rule engines

IoT and Smart Home are hot topics today, and their popularity has spawned a lot of nice frameworks for developing applications, such as Eclipse Smart Home. However, real smart homes tend to be complex systems that pose hardware-software and systems integration challenges, which can provide a lot of headache to software developers lacking significant hardware experience.

Eclipse and Java™ 9

Last year I showed where we, i.e. JDT, are with Java™ 9. This was well received and got a lot of positive feedback . We added many features since then and Java™ 9 is supposed to go GA on September 21.This session will present the most important new stuff in Java™ 9, especially project Jigsaw, which introduces modules into Java™. I will show how to get started developing Java™ 9 code with Eclipse and demo the new features that are provided by the upcoming Eclipse release for Java™ 9.

Eclipse APP4MC - embedded multicore optimization

Eclipse APP4MC provides an open source tool platform for optimization of embedded multi- and many-core systems. During two years as an Eclipse project we went through the project creation process, set up a structure for supporting tools and established regular quarterly releases.

The first part of the talk will describe the current status of the APP4MC tool platform and how we set up the project infrastructure.

The second part shows the activities to promote the platform: presentations, academic challenges, examples and tools.

Eclipse Charting Capabilities

What is more comprehensible: a table with tons of values or a chart? The answer depends on the point of view. The computer better "understands" the table. But we humans are very good when it comes to image recognition. Personally, I prefer the image too. Next question: Is a lightweight charting library available in the Eclipse ecosystem? Sure, solutions exist like Eclipse BIRT or the Eclipse Nebula visualization widgets.

Eclipse MicroProfile Config and OSGi Config Admin

Eclipse MicroProfile Config defines a Java programming model for microservices. It offers the capability of configuring microservices without repacking the microservices; microservices reacting differently based on the deployment environment; dynamic configuration feeding into the microservices without restarting the microservices. OSGi Config Admin exists for many years and offers an efficient configuration model to OSGi applications. MicroPorfile Config can work well in OSGi applications. It doesn't contradict but instead compliments Config Admin.
