Making Eclipse IDE better at handling real-life projects
Par Mickael Istria (Red Hat Inc.)
Catégorie cool stuff with eclipse
Thème Eclipse IDE usability
Format Standard (20' with implementation details), or Quicky (5 min for functional demo)
Résumé Have you ever tried to pick up a random multi-module project you didn’t know much about and to import it in Eclipse IDE ? Which folder should you actually import as projects? Which ones of the dozens of import wizards should you use to achieve that?... You’ll need a lot of patience before getting a viable workspace for your project.

Then, when you’re done importing, your Eclipse IDE shows you a flat list of modules without presenting how they are actually organized with one another. Therefore, most of the project structure is lost and you have to figure it out by yourself and remember how it looks on your filesystem or on the SCM browser. These 2 issues can’t last forever. A real-life project is much more than what Eclipse IDE calls a project. In order to remain productive and helpful, Eclipse IDE has to adapt to the complexity of current projects, embrace the modularity and diversity of technologies and languages across the various modules of a same project.

This presentation will showcase simple, non-intrusive and elegant extensions to the Eclipse IDE making it easier to import projects (simple or complex) and honouring modularity in the Project Explorer. We will demonstrate these new features, show how a smarter import mechanism can also be extended to support any kind of project, and will get into the implementation details in order to highlight once again how the Eclipse Platform is still a very powerful framework that allows to integrate new concepts smoothly. The presented extensions are available under EPL at and are aimed at being part of Platform UI as soon as they’ve reached the necessary level of quality.

Thème Eclipse Ecosystem
Format Standard
Résumé The Eclipse project was born in 2001, and the Eclipse Foundation just turned 10. In the digital era, it looks old, but instead of resting on one's laurels, the Eclipse ecosystem innovates in new domains like IoT, Location aware technologies, Embedded Systems and more. This talk will present 10 projects you would not expect to find inside the Eclipse community if you still identify Eclipse mainly with the Java IDE.

Open you eyes and your ears, and be ready to learn more about open innovation "à la" Eclipse.

Thème Appli - web
Format Standard (20')
Résumé In a society in where we can all see an exponential growth in hacking attacks, this presentation raises awareness of web security vulnerabilities, what web developers can do to protect their web applications and which tools are available to ease the task.

In particular, I'm going to provide an overview on the OWASP top ten vulnerabilities, then focusing on CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) attack, showing how it works, the impacts it can have, and how it is possible to prevent it. Finally, I will briefly describe the OWASP LAPSE project, a useful Eclipse plugin for detecting vulnerabilities in Java EE applications.

We will show how to do that with a BPMS, and finish the presentation with a demonstration of connected objects running through a process.
Ready-to-use development environment for internal development and external contributors with Oomph for Bonita BPM products
By Aurélien Pupier - Bonitasoft S.A.
Category Cool stuff with Eclipse
Theme other - IDE
Format Standard (20')
Abstract Tired of configuring your Eclipse from version to version? From one component to another? From one machine to another?

Tired of setting up the environment to contribute to a new Open Source project? Personally, almost all my recent code contributions to Eclipse projects were done only if they provide an Oomph configuration. No more need to search for the correct Git/Gerrit repository, install the correct plugins, modify the Code Formatter, setup the Target Platform and more. It saves so much time!

Hum, wait... We are using the Eclipse IDE in my company - I'm sure you too ;). Why not provide an installer for our own product?

At Bonitasoft, we have two distributions, one Open Source and one commercial. Some resources are available only internally such as a platform to manage code quality (Sonar), a Continuous Integration (Jenkins) server or a specific Bug Tracker (Jira). I decided to provide an installer for both products and for two different targets, the Bonitasoft developers and all the potential new contributors.

In this talk, the following topics will be covered: - Structure used to provide installer for Company Environment and Community Environment - Tips, tricks and feedback on the implementation - Analysis of gain (time, contributions, quality)

Engineering Embedded Systems with MindEd
Par Stéphane Seyvoz - Assystem, for Schneider-Electric
Catégorie Cool stuff with Eclipse
Thème Appli - Modelling Embedded Systems
Format Standard (20')
Résumé MindEd is an Eclipse plugin, part of the OW2/Minalogic MIND project. This project started in 2008, and consists of Component-Based Software Engineering tools based on the OW2 Fractal component model. Our toolchain uses an Architecture Description Language, an Interface language, and C/C++ for components implementations, targeting embedded systems.

The MindEd Eclipse plugin aims to provide assistance to the MIND applications developer, featuring ADL and IDL support through Xtext and EMF, C/C++ integration with CDT, and a new Sirius-based graphical editor prototype that will hopefully replace the former GMF-based one.

In this talk, we will show an overview of the tool, provide feedback on the frameworks we used along the project, and our perpectives for the next releases.

Multi-platform hybrid Mobile applications with Apache Cordova and Eclipse THyM
Par Mickael Istria - Red Hat
Catégorie Cool stuff with Eclipse
Thème Appli - Mobile
Format Standard (20')
Résumé With the amount of different mobile platforms and the diversity of languages and concepts they use, it has become expensive to develop one application for each platform. Apache Cordova solves this by allowing developers to use HTML5 & JavaScript as programming language, adding bridges to some native features, and packaging it as regular packages that you can put on your favorite Mobile applications market. Apache Cordova only provides a CLI, and such Hybrid projects can quickly become complex to manage and require some good tools. That's why the team behing JBoss Developer Studio developed and contributed Eclipse THyM (The Hybrid Mobile) which aims at providing easier development experience for Cordova projects inside Eclipse IDE.

This talk will show a basic introduction to development of Mobile applications with Apache Cordova by leveraging the Eclipse THyM tools in your favorite IDE (in case you're not sure, it's Eclipse IDE).

Eclipse IoT in action
Par Pierre Pitiot - Eurotech
Catégorie Cool stuff In Eclipse
Thème Eclipse Iot
Format Standard (20')
Résumé nous montrerons lors d'une rapide démonstration d'applications dans le monde réel comment la mise en œuvre des outils développés dans le groupe IoT de la fondation Eclipse apportent une contribution décisive au développement de l'Internet des objets.

Nous évoquerons plus particulièrement les projets KURA, conteneur basé sur Java/OSGI développé pour les applications IoT s'exécutant sur les passerelles de services, mis à disposition de la communauté open-source par Eurotech, PAHO, client MQTT en open-source et Mosquitto, broker Mqtt.

Le dispositif déployé sur le terrain (passerelle de services) collecte les données produites par des capteurs, il met ces données en forme et les transmet au broker Mqtt en utilisant le client Mqtt Paho.

Dans notre cas, les données sont intégrées dans la platforme d'intégration "Everyware Cloud" développée par Eurotech et mises à disposition des "business applications" finales..
