e4 is generating a lot of interest in the Eclipse community. A lot of people are already helping to promote and evangelize the e4 platform. The intent of this page is to help e4 evangelist collaborate on their promotion of the e4 technology.


e4 Themes and Messages

Lots of people have heard about e4 but not a lot of people can explain what it is and who it is for. Therefore, we should attempt to develop a common set of messages and short description. The following is a proposal and open for comment.

Main Theme: e4 is the next generation platform for building Eclipse-based applications (RCP 2.0)

Supporting Message: Easier to Develop

  • Develop using Javascript and OpenSocial widgets
  • XWT for declarative
  • easier APIs to access Application services (20 things)

Supporting Message: Easier to Assemble

  • EMF Model for assembly
  • Visual Designer for assembly
  • skinnable UI via CSS

Secondary Theme: JavaScript Modularity

Key Questions that need to be answered

  • How do people migrate to e4?
  • What is in e4 for a Java EE and Web developer that might not be building Eclipse-based applications?


e4 User Portal

We need to create a web page that targets new users to e4. The goal would be to make it easy for them to find information and resource to get started on e4. On this use page we could include things like:

  • Getting Started Tutorials
  • Examples and Demos
  • Migration Documents
  • Blog feed of e4 related posts
  • Download links
  • Support Forum links

The Eclipse Foundation will help build the web page but it will rely upon the Evangelists to help supply content.
