In this session we'll show you the latest tools for working with Java on Windows Azure, including our Plugin for Eclipse, options in Windows and Linux for authentication, security, and continuous integration, an introduction to the Java Developer Center for Windows Azure, the Azure SDK for Java, and other tools and materials we've developed for Java developers with help from the community.
The Tracing and Monitoring Framework (TMF), part of the Eclipse Linux Tools project, was built to easily visualize, analyze and correlate traces from different applications and sources. It is extensible for any trace format and type of analysis that needs to be done on a trace. It provides reusable views and widgets and has support for arbitrarily large traces. The Eclipse LTTng extension of the framework consolidates the trace analysis based the LTTng Kernel and User Space traces. Several new views and analysis have been added to the TMF and LTTng Eclipse extension recently.
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.
