Building form-based UIs with EMF Forms - 101

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

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!
In this talk we provide a jump start to using EMF Forms effectively. We introduce the most important features and show a live demonstration of how to create fully functional forms within minutes. Based on our experience addressing hundreds of user requests, we highlight the most common pitfalls and answer the most frequently asked questions. Although 35 minutes is not enough time for a tutorial, you will feel ready to jump right in with EMF Forms after this talk

With Oxygen.1, we ship the 14th release of EMF Forms, since version 1.0.0, we have completed over 1.4k feature requests and bug reports, 38 contributors have submitted 10k of commits and developed 640k lines of code. EMF Forms continues to be one of the most active projects at Eclipse.
