We have the following demonstrations confirmed:

JavaFX/Swing Renderers for the Eclipse 4 Application Platform (Kai Tödter, Siemens)

One important architectural concept of the Eclipse 4 application platform is the strong separation of application model and rendering engine. As a proof of concept, Kai will show prototype rendering engines that use JavaFX 2.1 and Swing as UI technologies.

Application-hopping with Jubula (Alex Schladebeck, BREDEX GmbH)

Testing complex use cases often involves switching between applications during the test - be it between two differerent applications (admin : full application) or two instances of the same application (to test database replications or multi-user support). This demonstration shows how Jubula supports application hopping using the concept of test jobs.

Xcore: Ecore Meets Xtext (Ed Merks - Project Leader of Eclipse Modeling Framework)

Ecore's success stems from its power to describe deep semantic structure more concisely than Java. The downside are the tools. Certainly Ecore's structured editor is simple and effective and its graphical editor is rich and elegant but both are cumbersome compared to traditional text-based tools. The Xtext framework beckons with a solution: a textual syntax for Ecore. Going one step further, we leverage Xbase to define a concise textual notation for describing behavior and exploit it to implement constraints, derived features, operations, and data type conversion. We call this new language Xcore.

Code Recommenders (Marcel Bruch, Eclipse Committer)

Application frameworks have become an integral part of today's software development - this is hardly surprising given their promised benefits such as reduced costs, higher quality, and shorter time to market. But using an application framework is not free of cost. Before frameworks can be used efficiently, software developers have to learn their correct usage which often results in high initial training costs.
However, framework usages frequently follow typical patterns that manifest themselves in source code of applications that use these frameworks - and thus can be extracted from code and directly reused to guide novice developers when learning these frameworks. The Eclipse Code Recommenders project facilitates this reuse of collective knowledge by automatically collecting such information from code and brings back this knowledge into the IDE by means of intelligent code completion, extended (usage-driven) javadocs, and many things more.
This demo introduces you to Eclipse Code Recommenders. It will demonstrate how you can leverage the collective knowledge of your team mates to improve your own productivity with no effort.

Riena on e4 (Heiko Barth, Eclipse Riena Committer)

Eclipse Riena is a modern client server framework for business applications. One central part of Riena is the customizable task oriented user interface which relies heavily on Eclipse RCP. This talk will give you an overview about the key concepts of porting Riena to Eclipse 4.

Kooperatives Modellieren (Martin Vogel and Marc Janssen, TU Clausthal)

Eclipse Gyrex Demo (Gunnar Wagenknecht, AGETO)
