Rapid Prototyping of Eclipse RCP Applications

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

As Eclipse RCP developer, you have different options to create prototypes for your customers quickly.

In this talk, I will share my experience in building RCP applications by using a simple, efficient and extensible technology stack based on:

  • POJO data model
  • JAXB and JPA annotations for XML and DB persistence
  • Eclipse E4 as Application Platform
  • WindowBuilder as a visual designer to build UIs and manage data bindings.

With the help of a case study from the banking domain, you will see all the steps needed to create a complete prototype that you can easily re-use and transform into a real world application.

During the presentation, we'll examine the key points for the creation of the prototype, and you will see few demos on how to use the E4 Editor and Window Builder efficiently. 

At the end of the talk, you will be able to repeat the process and understand and adapt the provided source code to develop your applications quickly.

If you want to prototype Eclipse RCP applications with XML/DB persistence and a relatively complex UI, you should attend this talk.
