Vaaclipse - e4 meets Vaadin

Some years ago eclipse foundation introduced their amazing ideas concerning e4. The UI should not be related to SWT anymore, but different ui technologies should be available. Eclipse implemented a UI renderer for SWT.
Rushan Gillmulin started a project called Vaaclipse. It is based on the e4 runtime and adds a Vaadin UI renderer. So an RCP application based on e4 and Vaadin UI can be implemented properly.

In my talk i am going to demo how easy it is, to implement an RCP application using Vaaclipse.

Migrating from Eclipse 3.X to Eclipse 4.X - The iAware Story

At its core, the iAware team develops a reusable application platform built on top of the Eclipse RCP framework to provide the ability to create targeted healthcare workflow applications. As such when making the decision to upgrade from Eclipse 3.X to Eclipse 4.X we had to balance the cost and risk with the expected gains that the new feature set will bring; especially in our case where the end-user doesn't see the changes but would definitely feel them if things don't work right.

Eclipse Luna: Awesome *NEW* Features

You knew you wanted them, *we* knew you wanted them...finally we can do them !

There are a number of features that despite having been clearly identified as desirable (years ago) have never appeared and had essentially been given up for dead. The reason these features never made it to a release is that they were pretty well impossible to do using the 3.x architecture. We've now taken another look and find that using e4 they're actually not that hard.
