Dr. Frank Gerhardt


Jochen Hiller

The Server-Side-Eclipse symposium focuses on all aspects of using Eclipse technologies on the server-side. This includes the usage of server related bundles like the extension registry and HTTP services, server-side OSGi (servlet bridge), integration with the Spring Framework, and resource management (JMX). For the development of web-based user interfaces, a central topic will be the tooling and integration of conventional web frameworks (Struts, JSF) and AJAX-based frameworks, as proposed by the Eclipse projects RAP, RSP-UI, and ATF.

We invite other Eclipse projects to present their experiences and plans using a server-side or distributed architecture with client and server plug-ins, e.g. ECF, ALF, and Corona. The goal of the symposium is to bring people from all flavors of server-side Eclipse usage together, understand the different approaches and discuss future developments. Please submit a position paper, describing your interests and experiences regarding server-side Eclipse technologies.

See the symposia format page for a description of how this Symposium will be held.

Dr. Frank Gerhardt is an independent Eclipse consultant and owner of Gerhardt Informatics, a Hungarian company specializing in Eclipse RCP application development. He can be reached at fg(at)gerhardtinformatics(dot)com.
