EclipseCon 2009 Day1-Day2 Round up
Posted by sureshkrishna on March 25, 2009
EclipseCon is one of the cool conferences that i want to attend every year. Even if you don’t use all the technologies and projects, this is a good time for you to get to know what’s happening in the community and see some cool demos and case studies. I attended first 2 days and gave my talk on “JSON Viewer and XPath Workbook” on Tuesday afternoon.
My long time friend Annalmalai gave a talk on the “India and Eclipse Eco System“. India has a great potential for any Eclipse based product vendors. Annamalai highlited some of the industries that use Eclipse and the technology usage (RCP, EMF, GEF and GMF) aspects. ANCIT Consulting is doing a lot of training and actively conducting DemoCamps all over India. For any one, who would want to get into Indian market and dont know where to start, i guess ANCIT Consulting will be the right point of contact.
Oracle released the Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 11g (OEPE) with many cool features. This has a rich set of features and enhancements in Oracle WebLogic Server plugins and Eclipse based Database dev tooling.
Got a demo from Wayne Parrott and Jens Eckles from Genuitec on the FireFly Mobile Web Developer Kit Project. The cool thing is that the demo uses an iPhone simulation for the developers. I am waiting for the development kit to come out and play with.
Last but not the least, the tutorial by Kai and Benjamin was a very realistic and solution oriented presentation. They both talked about the finer aspects of the RCP development and the Mp3 manager is a nice application to start with and play around. I would highly recommend anyone who is struggling to convince your bosses about RCP to see this presentation.
Waiting for the Galileo release…
