GEF4 - There's really something going on!

The GEF4 initiative, created 2 years ago, has finally taken up some speed. While a new GEF4 Geometry component had already been finalized in the Juno development stream, migration and refactoring of further parts of the GEF 3.x / Zest 1.x code base has been our main focus since.

As we plan to generally replace Draw2d with JavaFX as a rendering front end, we have initiated a new GEF4 SwtFX component for backwards compatibility reasons. It allows to embed SWT controls into a JavaFX scene graph if the scene in turn is embedded into a specialized FXCanvas (SwtFXCanvas).

Prevent Three-Eyed Fish: Analyze Your Nuclear Reactor with Eclipse

Nuclear energy is a big part of the global energy infrastructure and will be critical in meeting future energy demand. To that end, the U.S. government has funded large modeling and simulation programs to help design the next generation of nuclear reactors (and understand the old ones!). These programs generate petabytes of data when simulating a “full core” and leave the user with a question: “How can I extract knowledge from that much data!?”
