GEF 5.0.0 - From a User's Perspective

Since the first graduation of the next generation code base (a.k.a. GEF4) in June 2016, we have worked intensively on making GEF even more robust and concise. And we have added some nice end-user features that make GEF applications fun to use. In this talk I will give an overview from an end-users perspective, especially pointing out what has been added during the 5.0.0 (Oxygen) release timeframe. I will also give a short outlook about our plans for Eclipse Photon.

Customizing E4 Dependency Injection – Let's Give it a Shot

One of the central aspects in Eclipse 4 is Dependency Injection, and for many cases it works like a charm. This talk is motivated by two cases in which the magic fades a bit, because some effort is required to make it work:

1. Injecting legacy components which are not instantiated by the application model

This is an issue if you are not developing E4 RCP applications, but want to enhance the Eclipse IDE using E4 technologies.

2. Performing Dual Injection with E4DI and Guice

How to make your Eclipse application HiDPI ready!

In today’s world, HiDPI monitors are becoming increasingly popular and they are here to stay. With more and more users moving to higher resolution displays, it’s important to ensure that your application renders nicely on these displays. Eclipse provides the required support to make your application ready for the HiDPI displays.

Introduction to expression languages in Xtext

Embedding support for expressions into Xtext based languages has become easy when Xbase is chosen as base language. However, deriving a language from Xbase implies the usage of a Java based type system with dependencies on JDT. For language implementations that need to be independent from Java or that should have a different type system it is required to embed an own expression language.

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!

Simulating Autonomous Vehicles and Future Mobility Concepts in Urban Areas

SUMO (Simulation of Urban Mobility) is a microscopic traffic simulator. It has been developed by the German Aerospace Center since 2003 and published as Open Source (see In this talk, SUMO and its capabilities for the realistic simulation of cars, busses, bikes, pedestrians, trains and even ships in cities, such as Berlin, are presented in an overview. A short and hands-on tutorial for the live creation of a simulation scenario is provided.

What every Eclipse developer should know about Eclipse 4 (e4)

This tutorial will give you a jumpstart on the concepts of the Eclipse 4 Application Platform. If you have previous experience developing with RCP 3.x but limited or no experience with e4, this tutorial is designed for you. Using a sample application, we introduce the most important features of the Eclipse 4 platform, such as the Application Model, Dependency Injection and the Programming Model based on Annotations. We complete the introduction with an overview of the most important services available. All topics include hands-on examples that we’ll work through together.
