Wim Jongman preparing for the kick off on Eclipse 4.0
Advanced networking facilities
All the chairs in the building set up
Making clear who paid for food and drink
and quite crowd came to listen and watch
Jeroen van Grondelle and Marcel Offermans about OSGI service patterns. (Only implemented in full in Apache Felix), Jeroen stressed that we have to rethink our application for OSGi to fully take advantage of its facilities and not continue in our old Eclipse habits. Think service, not listener.
Jim van Dijk on Presentation Modelling Framework. We have to learn to think about UI in a whole different way again, not in terms of implementation (widgets, controls, HTML, ...) but in their abstractions: conversations, dialogs, compound dialogs, etc.
Break for food and drink, THANK YOU Wim Jongman!
That went down just as well as the presentations
Roel Spilker and Reinier Zwitserloot talked about Project Lombok and showed the Lombox Eclipse plugin to the world for the first time!
Wim Jongman and Marcel Offermans talked about and demonstrated OSGi in the cloud using Eclipse and Apache ACE.
Finally we heard and saw Jelle Herold about Verostko graphics toolkit & Statebox process engine.
