From nothing to complete environment with Maven, Oomph & Docker
by Max Bureck

Sometimes building integrations into classical Eclipse/OSGi based technologies has a long and error prone ramp-up phase. This alienates new developers and even bothers experienced programmers, making Eclipse based technology seem more complicated than it really is. Fortunately a little automation can already go a long way.

B612 Font Analysis

Polar Sys B612 font- the new font for future cockpits?
by Laurent Spaggiari

Various studies have been conducted to assess the quality of displays on Airbus equipment including the A380, A400M and A350. The general conclusion was that the displays could be improved in terms of readability (detecting and/or reducing risk of error) and of reading comfort. In addition, if you included the screen used to display pilot/maintenance documentation, the cockpit was not homogenous due to the multiple fonts used.

Language Server Protocol in action: C# in Eclipse IDE, Java in VSCode, your language everywhere

Charts to the Eclipse people - The making-of
by Philip Wenig

What is more comprehensible: a table with tons of values or a chart? The answer depends on the point of view. The computer better "understands" the table. But we humans are very good when it comes to image recognition. Personally, I prefer the image too. Next question: Is a lightweight charting library available in the Eclipse ecosystem? Sure, solutions exist like Eclipse BIRT [1] or the Eclipse Nebula visualization widgets [2]. But I missed a library which can be easily used and extended.
