17:55 Eclipse Scout: What's new with Mars
Matthias Zimmermann, BSI Business Systems Integration AG

Eclipse Scout is an application framework that helps to build business applications efficiently. With the Eclipse Mars release, Scout comes with consolidated support to modularize business applications along feature groups that are relevant to the business. In addition, the different modules may be implemented against a shared binary core that implements common functionality and cross cutting features.

In this talk we explain and motivate the usage of independent business modules (slices) and then demo the features of adding such slices to an existing core application. At the end of the talk we also provide a brief outlook of the Scout Neon release that is already in development.

18:20 Maven Tycho in practice
Martin Schreiber, Bachmann electronic Bachmann electronic develops Eclipse based tools for configuring and programming its logic controllers. The build environment for these tools is based on Jenkins and Maven Tycho. We will present the build process from the plugin to the installable product including our solution for working with multiple branches.
18:45 CloudScale Method for Analysing Scalability, Elasticity and Effieciency Engineering
Jinying Yu, TU Chemnitz The EU FP7 project CloudScale has developed methods for analysing the scalability, elasticity and efficiency of traditional and cloud-based systems via models and their simulation at system design time. In this demo, I’ll guide you through how to use the Analyser, CloudScale's tool for scalability engineering. I will illustrate how to detect and resolve scalability issues on a model level.

19:30 Interpreting Xtend: How to do it and why
Marco Eilers, itemis AG

Xtend is a language well-known in the Eclipse space which compiles to readable Java source code and is often used in conjunction with Java. Since it makes use of the Xbase expression language, it is relatively straightforward to develop an interpreter for it.

I will present some of the unique challenges an Xtend interpreter has handle which result from typical Xtend code's close integration with Java code. Subsequently, I will demonstrate some use cases for which an Xtend interpreter can be and is being used, including a tracing framework for model transformations.

19:55 Xtext for other platforms – Integration in IntelliJ IDEA and web applications
Miro Spönemann, itemis AG Xtext is a language development tool that integrates text editors for your DSLs within the Eclipse IDE, offering a rich set of features such as syntax highlighting, content assist, navigation, code generation, and much more. However, in some projects it is not feasible to use Eclipse to access the DSLs, but other platforms would be preferred. For this reason the upcoming Xtext release 2.9 will include integrations for two more platforms: IntelliJ IDEA and web applications. I will present the current state of these new developments.
20:20 APP4MC – a new Eclipse project proposal
Harald Mackamul, Robert Bosch GmbH The APP4MC project provides an an open source tool platform for embedded multi- and many-core systems. It is intended as a de-facto standard to exchange timing information and to integrate tools for all major design steps. The initial codebase of APP4MC is the result of the publicly funded projects AMALTHEA and AMALTHEA4public (see:
