Eclipse Banking Day Copenhagen/Session Abstracts
Building Collaborative Communities
Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation
Abstract: Open source software development has proven to be an effective way of doing collaborative software development. Eclipse has optimized this model to allow organizations to collaborate on the development of base technology but compete on business value-added. This session we explore how organizations can benefit from building collaborative communities and what are the factors for success.
The Eclipse Runtime
Jochen Krause, EclipseSource
Abstract: Eclipse has evolved from a tooling platform to a general purpose, Equinox OSGi-based application platform running in a wide variety of software and hardware contexts. A significant set of established and new Eclipse projects are providing services for application developers - Ajax, bundles, communication, jee integration, O/R, persistence and more. This talk surveys the runtime technology available today and introduces the EclipseRT top-level project as the focal point for runtime technology at Eclipse.org. We present and discuss the goals of providing high quality runtime components based on the Equinox framework and OSGi in the context of the EclipseRT project and the larger Equinox community.
Large-Scale Use of Models and Modeling Tools
Steen Brahe, Danske Bank
Abstract: Danske Bank's development organization, which counts about 2,000 people, uses Eclipse-based models and modeling extensively in the requirement and software development process. This talk will introduce how we use models at an enterprise level and how we have customized a general modeling language(UML) and general tooling to our organization. We will also explain how we have developed an Eclipse-based model server that on request is able to look up models in a repository, validate against constraints, build reports and publish information to a central asset repository. This server enables us to make configuration management on models.
We will show some of the tools that we have developed, explain how they are implemented and reflect on challenges that we have experienced.
