E4 application development: examples, methods and tools
The powerful Eclipse 4 architecture brings some new concepts such as the application model, injection or event management for the main ones.
But Eclipse 4 also brings a number of interesting tools to monitor the proper use of these concepts. For example, the live model editor allows you to view and interact with the model dynamically, the event spy allows you to see the exchanged messages, the context spy watches different values stored in the injection contexts and finally, the CSS spy helps to easily test styles on your application.
Around the development of a sample pure Eclipse 4 application, to briefly recall these concepts and the installation of the tools, this workshop will demonstrate the use of these spies during development.
