On the next April, 10th, we are happy to have Olivier Prouvost from OPCoach (http://opcoach.com/) to talk about the latest Eclipse technologies.
Eclipse is not only an IDE for developing in Java. It is also an eco-system, managed by a Foundation and providing a lot of different projects that can help you to increase your productivity whatever the project and the programming language you use.
This presentation will give you information about the Foundation, and the most important projects you should know for your software tooling or your projects.
In particular I will introduce lightly the OSGi project and how it has been used to provide the powerful Eclipse 4 architecture (RCP).
Then I will explain how the Eclipse Modeling project can help you to build your productivity tooling. Namely how you can create meta-models, editors for your models and code generators very easily using the EMF, XText, Xtend and Sirius projects.
So if you are a standalone application developper or a web developper you will discover powerful projects that will help you every day for your future developments.
