In the opening keynote at SpringOne Europe 2009, Rod Johnson wondered if Java innovation is going to be stifled by latest Oracle acquisition and expressed his belief that Java will continue to evolve outside of Sun as it has done for the last few years. As proof he mentioned: Grails, Roo, a tool for improved developer productivity, a free STS, tc Server and dm Server.
Part one focuses on an overview of Mylyn's task management features including offline editing, background synchronizations and change notifications with demos of how these work for Bugzilla and JIRA. Part two is an overview of how Mylyn's frameworks can be extended when building IDE, desktop, and server-side applications. NOTE THAT ANIMATIONS ARE MISSING.
In this presentation recorded at QCon SF 2008, Rod Johnson, the father of Spring, introduces the SpringSource dm Server by taking a high-level look at it, trying to clear up some misconceptions about what dm Server is, and showing how the configuration, logging and application installation work.
The real world experience building Lombardi Blueprint is used as a case study to introduce the use of GWT, why it was successful and why it has become the platform of choice for other Lombardi products. One goal of the presentation is to argue for the use of GWT as the foundation for RIA development.
Erich Gamma shares the lessons learnt being deeply involved in the development of the Eclipse platform over the years. From being a platform in closed development, Eclipse turned into an open source one supported by a large and growing community. Erich also talked about Jazz, IBM’s software development platform which incorporates the lessons learnt from Eclipse.
In this presentation filmed during QCon London 2008, Markus Voelter tried to convince the audience that writing a textual external DSL is fairly straightforward and simple. He took them through the steps needed to create a textual DSL from defining the grammar to processing a domain model.
In this talk, Markus Völter illustrates how model-driven and aspect oriented software development help addressing the challenge of managing variability in product line engineering. Both the problem space and the solution space are described by models, using a model-to-model transformation to map problem space variability to solution space variability.
Scott Delap provides an overview of Swing and Eclipse RCP technologies in today's world of RIA applications, as well as advances in deployment techniques such as Java Web Start and Pack200 which assist in the centralized deployment of desktop apps. Scott also compares when to use Java vs. other technologies such as Ajax, Flex, and OpenLazslo.
