The day will feature informal demos, presentations and discussions about cool Eclipse projects, ranging from research prototypes to fully-featured open-source and commercial offerings. Each presentation should be 20 minutes + 5 minutes of questions, doing the transition with next presentation. If you want to make something shorter, then we'll plan quickies (5 minutes). This tentative agenda is subject to change depending on the proposed talks.

Proposed talks

Submissions and deadline

Submit your talk proposal before November 12th!

You can submit simply by adding a paragraph there (please respect follow title conventions so we can easy use the page outline). We are looking for talks that show:

  • Cool stuff in Eclipse (Eclipse insight)
  • Cool stuff with Eclipse (how you use Eclipse)
  • Cool stuff for Eclipse (what plugins you develop)

All technologies/projects/organizations/... are good for a presentation, while it relates to Eclipse. Good topics of presentations can either be: innovative projects, new technologies, best practices with Eclipse IDE, showcase of a nice RCP application...

You proposal should also includes the possible formats. You can select either one, or both of them if you talk can suit to both standard and quicky format.

  • Standard talk (20 minutes of presentation + 5 minutes of questions)
  • Quicky (5 minutes to use as you want)

Note that as the schedule is quite tight, we can't allow any talks to be longer than announced. So make sure your presentation fits in the timeframe! It's better to make something shorter and have more time for questions than having something too long that you can't finish.

A speaker is allowed to present several talks. Presentations my be submitted either in French or in English.

Dataflow programming
By X Raynaud
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Format Quicky
Abstract This presentation may be split in two parts: (1) Dataflow programming requires support of a new C-like language in eclipse: difficulties and achievements. (2) Visualization and profiling of a dataflow application, focusing on Eclipse technologies used.
Trace and Monitoring Framework - a concrete usage for multicore application
By X Raynaud
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Format Quicky
Abstract Tracing and Monitoring Framework (TMF) started as a collection of Eclipse plugins to analyze LTTng traces. Since then, it has evolved into a generic trace analysis framework. The presentation will provides an overview of the framework, as well as a concrete usage of this framework for embedded multicore applications.
Building Eclipse Plug-ins and RCP Applications with Tycho
By Xavier Raynaud, or somebody else if any volunteer
Category Cool stuff for Eclipse
Format To be discussed
Abstract Tycho is a maven extension for building Eclipse artifacts (plug-ins, products, update-sites...). Idea is to exchange around this practice, perhaps using http://www.eclipsecon.org/2013/sessions/building-eclipse-plug-ins-and-rcp-applications-tycho
Example of model driven tools integration in HW/SW development
By Sebastien Revol
Category Cool stuff for Eclipse
Format To be discussed
Abstract EMF Model driven tools provide fantastic ways to structure and reuse information with model transformation and code or doc generation. However the development and the deployment of such tools require eclipse and java skills which prevent non-expert people to integrate those tools in their development flow. We present here a set of plugins we have developped on top of EMF tools to allow HW developers to easily write, deploy and execute their generators in a command-line based unix environment.
How to contribute to an Eclipse project?
By Mickael Istria (other welcome)
Category Cool stuff for Eclipse
Format Standard (20 minutes)
Abstract Everybody uses or have used Eclipse for various purpose. As a consequence, everybody has an idea of something to improve in Eclipse. Eclipse is community-driven, and your feedback and your contributions are actually what make Eclipse what it is, and what it's going to be. But the process of giving feedback and contributing code is not trivial.
This talk will present the standard process of contributing anything to an Eclipse project: what are the entry points? How to be explicit? How to convince people of the value of your request? How to contribute code? How to become a project committer?...
JBoss Developer Studio: an IDE for Web, Mobile and Cloud applications
By Max Rydahl Andersen
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Format Standard (case-study)
Abstract JBoss Developer Studio is an IDE dedicated to JBoss technologies and focusing on very high productivity of developers doing Java for Web, Mobile and Cloud applications. This presentation will feature a demonstration, and can be extended to a case-study explaining how such an IDE leverages pieces of Eclipse.
LiveReload integration in Eclipse is refreshing
By Max Rydahl Andersen
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Format Standard or Quicky (demo only)
Abstract Having to go back and forth between the IDE and the browser's refresh button to reload the Web page after editing a few lines of code is a repetitive and tedious task...

In this session, you'll see how the LiveReload integration in Eclipse can save web application developers'time, whether they build their pages with plain old HTML or JSP/JSF templates deployed in an application server or even plain asciidoc documents.

You'll also learn how the LiveReload protocol has been implemented on top of Jetty and the Eclipse WebTools APIs to support multiple modes of development and to target multiple platforms - including BrowserSim, tablets and smartphones ! - all along with a minimum of configuration.

You can get an idea of the features that will be covered and demoed during this session by watching this screencast or by reading the New and Noteworthy section of this JBoss Tools component.

Google Analytics for Eclipse Plugins
By Max Rydahl Andersen
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Format Standard or Quicky (demo only)
Abstract It's always fun to see the download statistics for your plugin, but it is even more fun to see live who is actually using your plugin, how they installed it and where they are from.

Getting that up and running can require a lot of bandwidth and infrastructure but luckily there already exist a well known analytics service called Google Analytics that can do this for you with all the graphs and earth-plots you want - even animated.

We've implemented a plugin that utilizes Google Analytics to do all the heavy lifting of complex reporting and just leave it up to our plugins to setup and invoke a basic http request.

We will present the inner workings on how this Google Analytics Usage plugins works, the legal challenges and report some of the interesting findings we have done over the years.

For an example of what data and monitoring we have done see https://community.jboss.org/en/tools/blog/2012/07/30/observations-from-t... and http://jboss.org/tools/usage for details/source code.

AutoRefactor : automatically refactor entire Java code bases!
By JN Rouvignac
Category Cool stuff for Eclipse
Format Quicky or Standard (French or English)
Abstract Was your code base written in majority with Java 1.4?

Does running SonarQube expose 10000+ violations on your code base?
Were Code Monkeys unleashed on your code base?
AutoRefactor aim to solve most of these problems for you... automatically!

Projets Eclipse pour l'IoT, le M2M et le SOHO
By Didier Donsez
Category Cool stuff for Eclipse
Format French
Abstract L'Internet des choses (IoT) devient désormais une réalité avec la disponibilité de dispositifs enfouis communicants (étiquettes RFID, capteurs sans fil, téléphonie mobile …) de faible coût. L'Internet des choses offre aux entreprises de nouvelles opportunités de modèles économiques (ie pay as you use), d’amélioration de la qualité du service rendu à leurs clients (particuliers ou entreprises) et de satisfaction de leurs obligations légales ou contractuelles. Il s’impose comme le nouvel outil d’efficacité (ie just-in-time) et de productivité pour les entreprises et organisations e-agiles. Les services nécessaires sont appelés Machine à Machine (M2M) car ils sont à la convergence des dispositifs enfouis et des systèmes d'information des entreprises via des moyens de communication ubiquitaires. Cependant une grande majorité des services M2M sont actuellement conçus de manière ad-hoc en adressant spécifiquement un domaine sectoriel (santé, énergie, agriculture, distribution, transports, …). Ces services M2M sont généralement incompatibles entre eux et de ce fait, ils ne permettent pas de « croiser » les applications inter-secteurs.

Les intergiciels pour M2M jouent un rôle crucial dans la livraison et l'évolution rapides d'infrastructures matérielles et des suites logicielles flexibles et adaptées aux besoins des entreprises et des organisations, et de leurs clients et de leurs usagers pour l'exploitation de l'Internet des Choses. Cette présentation introduira 3 projets de la fondation Eclipse qui développent des intergiciels et des environnements de développement pour l'IoT, le M2M et le SOHO (Smart Office Home Office).
