Eclipse Day At Googleplex 2010/Session Abstracts
Git and Eclipse
Chris Aniszczyk, Red Hat
Shawn Pearce, Google
The EGit project is implementing Eclipse tooling on top of JGit, the Java implementation of Git. Both EGit and JGit moved to Eclipse in May 2009 and shipped version 0.8.0 with the Eclipse Helios simultaneous release. The next release is 0.9.0 and is planned to ship in September.
This talk will give an update on how Eclipse is using Git, the status of the EGit and JGit projects and more detailed information about the design and features. A demo will illustrate how it's used in its own development process. It will also show how Gerrit Code Review, a JGit based review system developed for the needs of the Android community, can help to further improve the development process.
