Being at EclipseCon Europe for me is always a highlight throughout the year. While I am enjoying the talks and discussions (and some beer) you might be interested in what to expect from my talk on EASE today:
Well I guess lots of you are already familiar with the basic concept of running scripts in Eclipse. Therefore the talk will focus on scripts that augment the IDE (or any other RCP application) in special ways. We will use them to add toolbar and menu items, we will create a custom builder prototype, learn something about the Event Broker and finally have a look at script deployment methods. Therefore we will use a generic keyword mechanism which can be extended easily to your own needs.
Even if you do not care about scripting but prefer pure Java this talk might be for you. Using EASE you may extend the IDE without deployment of features (and without a restart).
As I am a big fan of live sessions we will rush through some slides in 3 minutes and use the rest for a live demo.
Got your interest? Join me on Wednesday, 11:45 at Silchersaal.
