Delivering "native" Eclipse software packages

Everyone knows that SAT4J, P2 and Eclipse are written in Java, because of Java's overall greatness (and portability). However, the portability often means similar behaviour on different platforms, which is great for many, many things, but not for the installation management.

Users expect software to be installed in a "native" way, using system installers. It is pretty easy to build a "working" solution, but getting a right solution was nearly impossible, mostly due to the number of possible interferences between P2 and the native installer.

Safety Inside ! ensured with technology

The development of safety and mission critical systems is governed by stringent standards which require evidence of the quality of the developed artifacts across the full development life-cycle. Thus an integrated solution is needed in order to provide the required quality and evidence thereof. The engineering challenge of creating today’s most advanced systems demands more a collaborative, integrated approach and that challenge has been boldly answered!

UI Performance Monitoring

SWT is the heart of the Eclipse UI and is driven primarily by an event dispatch loop. When events block the loop from proceeding for too long, the UI suffers from stutters and freezes that can be difficult to diagnose. A traditional profiler would either be unusably slow (instrumented mode) or produce mountains of irrelevant data (sampling mode).

Vert.x on OpenShift

This session is straight forward yet still amazing. In 35 minutes we will spin up a Vert.x instance, merge in a Java based project, then add a Python project, and finally do some web sockets. Openshift will allow us to spin up Vert.x with one command and have it running both with normal HTTP and with Web Sockets. From there we can play with all the Vert.x features our heart desires. Oh and did I mention you can run all of this (along with your database) for free. Come in for minimal slides and a lot demo with questions and answers - what could be better.

Building Vert.x applications with Clojure

Clojure has recently joined the panoply of languages that is supported natively by Vert.x. In this talk, we'll explore how Clojure's functional nature and REPL-driven development model are excellent techniques for developing on the Vert.x platform. We'll also look at some of the projects in the Clojure+Vert.x ecosystem that allow you to develop Clojure+Vert.x applications the same way you would develop any other Clojure application.

Using Spring Framework in a Vert.x world

Vert.x is an amazing asynchronous event-driven framework to create extremely fast, powerful and extensible applications. However, it is a low level framework and doesn't add some great functionality of higher level application frameworks like Spring and Dependency Injection, as well as many other great libraries like Spring Data, Spring Integration, Hibernate, Shiro, etc. These frameworks and libraries have been used for a long time on many complex applications.

Wouldn't it be great if you could combine the two. Greatly increasing your productivity to finishing your applications.
