Leveraging Eclipse 4 API to Build Components for the Future (Webinar)
by Eric Moffatt
This is a webinar that covers the major parts of the e4 architecture / API upon which Eclipse 4 is based. It also presents a code pattern that will allow an eclipse view to be presented wherever you want (Wizard page, Dialog...).
This is the project used to create the Wizard Page shown above: Media:WebinarProject.zip.
Just unzip it and add it to your workspace. Then running an inner will show a new entry in the 'New...' dropdown called 'Local Views' (which is the page you see above)
The tutorial is available at Eclipse Live - Webinar
