Eclipse Che: Theia IDE on steroids

Eclipse Che has recently decided to adopt Eclipse Theia as the default web IDE provided with its developer workspaces. This is a huge step toward improving the extensibility of the IDE, embracing modern web technologies such as TypeScript, React and other JS frameworks.

From our experience developing an IDE with the GWT framework, we are providing two important extensibility mechanisms to Eclipse Che:

Move Your Crate - How to optimize your mobility

Despite being severly allergic to sunlight the average nerd in all of us sometimes needs to change her location. Of course she will never do so without simulating her path through the physical world in advance and predict possible disturbances on the road ahead. Furthermore, as so many of us are part of the "quantify yourself" movement aiming to optimize your life, the nerd is also keen to optimize the use of newly invented transport modes, like ridepooling, ridesharing or even podcars - but what is the best choice?

We scaled I(o)T

Eclipse Hono offers horizontal scaling for cloud IoT messaging. You can find a lot of documentation about Hono architecture and learn how it is designed to achieve this scalability. Deployment of such a complex cloud software, on the other hand, is very dependent on the specific environment and use case. That is why there haven’t been too much talk around this topic so far.

Making Eclipse JDT Future–ready - Java 11 and Beyond

Eclipse Java Development Tool (JDT) is witnessing rapid changes now, thanks to the faster Java release cycles – Since Java 9, a new Java version arrives every six months! Java 10 and Java 11 (due Sep 2018) releases have many explicit and implicit Java features in them. For e.g., “var” support was an explicit feature. There are features like Nest, Constant Dynamic, etc. that is in Java 11 along with enhancements to var support. Some of these features contain more than what meets the eye; they serve as building blocks of new features on the horizon. This talk will discuss how Eclipse JDT has incorporated new language features from a user perspective and the challenges involved. This talk will give a sneak peek into some of the major upcoming language features in the works as well.

I am what IAM - the testing challenges of digital transformation

Quite a few years ago, augmented reality entered our daily lives imposing digital perspectives on reality without actually ‘touching’ it. Devices like phones, tablets, televisions and cars only enrich information and our experiences for all kinds of reasons. But lately it shows that this was just the beginning of a major transition where those devices are not merely ‘dumb’ things that provide information; they’re able to actually ‘do’ things on their own. Interacting with consumers as well as with each other is making them part of our human reality.

From Java EE to Jakarta EE: a user perspective

During 20 years, we have been accustomed to Java EE (previously J2EE) managed by the Java Community Process. Not all of us were fully happy with this situation: we have often been frustrated by its slow process and its sometimes bloated specifications. But at least,  it was considered as a long-term standard.  In less than 6 months, everything has changed and now, we have Jakarta EE managed by the Eclipse Foundation. Who could have imagined such a change in a short period of time?

Modeling tools go up to the cloud…

In this talk we will present our plan to move Eclipse Sirius to the web and the cloud. At Obeo, we have been working on modeling tools in general, and on Sirius in particular, for a long time now. Until now, Sirius has relied exclusively on the Eclipse Platform, and consequently the graphical modelers based on it are desktop applications. Today we are ready to work with you to bring graphical modeling tools up to the cloud.

Textual AND graphical modeling: Xtext editors within Sirius Diagrams

Both textual and graphical modeling have their well-known strengths and weaknesses – obviously, we want the best of both worlds!

Enter Xtext/Sirius Integration: This talks includes a live demo of Xtext editors used as direct editors in Sirius diagrams and in the Properties view. We can both edit elements of the same model as used for the diagram, or edit text attribute contents.
Furthermore, this talk looks at some of the integration challenges and how to (mostly) overcome them.

The era of Rapid Cloud Development (RCD) is upon us!

Developers are using frameworks to deliver software as fast as possible. Some frameworks can be designated as Rapid Application Development (RAD) frameworks to achieve this goal. Because of modern concepts like microservices and clouds, software development is rapidly adopting these concepts. But what does this mean for the evolution of RAD frameworks? In this inspirational talk, I will share my experience and vision on how these RAD frameworks are adapting. In doing so, can we leave conventional RAD behind and declare a new era of Rapid Cloud Development (RCD)?

Build your own IoT cloud stack

Building your own IoT cloud stack isn’t a simple task, but we will kickstart your next IoT cloud project by setting up a full IoT cloud stack, dev-ops style, running on a Kubernetes based container platform.

We will bring an OpenShift cluster for you and guide you through the process of setting up a scalable messaging stack, Eclipse Hono, an IoT simulator, a payload consumer, Kafka, and a simple web frontend application. We will then add Eclipse Che for directly developing in the cloud, and start modifying the applications. Checking out what extension points this stack offers.
