Diamond Light Source is the UK national synchrotron, a machine that generates powerful beams of xrays used by scientists for a wide variety of experiments. In one of those experiments, a certain technique called Photo Emission Electron Microscopy (PEEM) is used to provide spectroscopic information of samples on a nm scale. PEEM proves useful in different fields of physics, chemistry, material science or life science. Samples investigated can range from meteorite pieces to biologic tissues and magnetic materials.
In this tutorial you will learn how to utilise Eclipse Virgo, a stable server-side OSGi runtime, and the included Spring Framework. The example is based on a Game of Life implementation with multiple web clients connected via WebSockets.
Shoot-A-Pi with Eclipse Kura is back! This tutorial filled almost immediately at EclipseCon NA 2015, so we are bringing it back for others to have a chance to participate. Based on feedback and experience, the tutorial has been updated to be even more useful and entertaining. The tutorial will even cover some of the yet to be seen features of Kura 2.0!
There has been a consistently growing and active open source community around Eclipse Kura since its initial release. In order to continue this community growth, this talk will offer an overview of the Kura framework to newcomers as well provide glimpses of what is next for experienced Kura users.
Building Internet of Things applications can be hard once you want to do more than a blinking LED. The OSGi specifications provide a set of open standards describing a dynamic module system for the Java language which greatly facilitates the development of complex modular applications. With Eclipse Concierge, a minimal footprint implementation of the OSGi R5 core standard, programmers and operators can now benefit from the same modular software development on various embedded devices as they already use on desktop machines and servers.
