If you know how to write Eclipse 3 UI plugins but you are not confident with the E4 writing, this talk is for you.
Pure E4 plugins can be fully mixed with legacy E3 plugins and there are no reasons today to still write legacy Eclipse 3 plugins while Eclipse 4 provides a lot of advantages.
This talk will compare in details the ways to write the UI code in Eclipse 3 vs Eclipse 4, without loosing the Eclipse 3 modularity while increasing testability.
This overview will focus on views, perspectives, editors, commands, preference pages and so on…
At the end it will introduce the E4 UI Testing that will be developed in another detailed talk.
