Time Topic Presenter Description
Eclipse Xtend – A Language Made For Java Developers TBD Are you waiting for closures in Java 8 or hoping for more type inference in Java 9? Thinking about switching to Scala or even holding your horses for Ceylon or Kotlin?

How about keeping Java where it seems fit, but replacing just its outdated parts with a concise and modern language? What about an enhancement to Java instead of yet another attempt to hire a killer.

Xtend is an an open-source programming language hosted at and built for Java developers. It reuses Java's keywords, terminology and concepts as much as possible, but abandons some dead freight at the same time. Xtend is a very powerful alternative for implementing Java classes and works great with all the existing libraries. Since the language can be seen as a little complementary add-on to Java, it offers many modern language features that you are currently missing in your daily work. Xtend comes with a variety of goodies reaching from type inference over closures and extension methods up to smart string interpolation that make development great fun, again. And of course there is powerful Eclipse IDE integration available.
Eclipse Gemini – OSGi goes Enterprise Jan Stamer The Gemini project is all about modular implementations of Java EE technology. It is a collection of implementations of some of the OSGi Enterprise specifications. Each sub-project is a separate and standalone project that provides unique functionality. They can be used in isolation, in combination or with other OSGi bundles to compose a desired OSGi runtime.
Components are not enough: Function oriented development for embedded systems. Andreas Graf Currently, the development processes for software in automotive are focused on the concept of "components".

However, due to the increasing complexity and interdependence, this approach is reaching its limits. Modern customer functions, like driving assistance, are distributed over a number of software components and ECUs. A component-oriented process does not provide a comprehensive view on a function.

OEMs see function-oriented processes as a solution to the challenge. Function orientation is an emerging strategic topic in automotive. However, in terms of methodology, tool support and organizational issues, the industry is only taking its first steps.

In the public sponsored research project "IMES" we are building an Eclipse-based toolchain for function-oriented development. Based on the open source project "EATOP", which provides a basic model-implementation of the EAST-ADL standard, the IMES tool supports the modeling of logical functions, the traceability both to requirements as well as implementation (based on Eclipse RMF). It includes editors for feature models and variant specification (an extension to Eclipse featuremodel) as well as tooling for AUTOSAR models (based on Artop) and can be connected to change management systems.
