Eclipse DemoCamp Old.jpg What is an Eclipse DemoCamp?


We will be guests at Adobe Hamburg, with a stunning view of the river Elbe. We hope you'll enjoy the location as much as we did when we checked it out! Here is a first impression:

Date and Time

November 14, 2012


Peter Friese, Zühlke Engineering

Martin Lippert, SpringSource - a division of VMware


Following the principles of openness and transparency, we (Martin and Peter) decided to do the sponsoring for the Eclipse Demo Camp Juno 2012 in Hamburg slightly different and use an open crowd-funding process (described in detail below). Due to the huge success of this process, we plan to do it again! So if you or your company want to sponsor the event, feel free to add your name / your company's name to the list, including the amount of money you would like to sponsor.

Sponsoring for the demo camp is totally open and transparent to everybody. We would like to invite everybody to participate in this sponsoring. The only thing you need to do in order to participate in this sponsoring is to add yourself (you as a person or the company that is sponsoring) to this section of the wiki page. Please add your name or company and the amount of money you would like to sponsor.

This is totally open. Everybody is invited to join the group of sponsors. Companies as well as individuals are invited to participate in this. And you decide for yourself on the total amount of money you would like to spend. The more money we get from YOU all, the more we can spend at the event for drinks and food. So please start today, convince your boss or spend your own money, and add you to the sponsoring list for the next Demo Camp in Hamburg.

The event will continue to be free for all participants (as it was in the past) and you don't need to sponsor just to participate.

One additional note: We will donate 20% of the sponsored food/drinks to an organisation that supports homeless people in Hamburg. So 20% of the ordered drinks/food will not be delivered to our demo camp, but directly to that organization at the same time. We did that once in the past when we ordered more stuff that we could eat and we thought we should do this again, but this time by purpose.

Our sponsors

If you would like to give a demo, please feel free to add it to the list. Should we receive more submissions than we can fit into the schedule, we will select the ones that we think are most interesting to the audience.

  • Desktop, Web and Mobile: Learn one get two for free - Rabea Gransberger, Holger Wolf
  • Let's try this again: Hibernate Code-Generation for Pracmatic Developers with HEDL - Jendrik Johannes
  • Annotation Processing on Steroids with Xtend - Sven Efftinge


If you added your demo to the list above, please add a short abstract to this list so people know what you will be talking about.

  • Desktop, Web and Mobile: Learn one get two for free (Rabea Gransberger and Holger Wolf, MEKO|S)
The frameworks of the eclipse platform make it possible to use the same code base for desktop, web and mobile clients. This talk will tell you how our product OTIS (Oil Trading and Information System) evolved from a single-plugin RCP application to a multi-plugin RCP, RAP and Tabris application. At MEKO|S we have a small development team and it's a big advantage of having to learn only one framework to use for all three types of applications. We only have to write the code for a new feature once and it can be used on all three platforms immediatly.
We are giving this talk at EclipseCon Europe in October 2012.
To ease the implementation of data models and to perform ORM, code generation is advertised as a solution for years already. Yet, ORM frameworks like Hiberante are far more popular than any code generation approach. Still, annotation-based frameworks such as Hibernate require a lot of boilerplate code writing. The Hibernate Entity Definition Language (HEDL) combines the benefits of ORM frameworks and code generation, by generating code for the Hibernate framework. Thus, HEDL is an excelent example of a pragmatic domain specific language (DSL), where the benefits of using DSLs and code generation for one important technical aspect of almost every Java software project can be directly observed (the average LOC ratio between the DSL and Java code is 1:100).
In this talk, we will not only demonstrate HEDL in action, but also discuss the properties that make HEDL a popular and useful DSL. Furthermore, we give insights about how HEDL was developed and how you can extend and modify it for your needs.
In this demo I want to give a preview on an upcoming, new feature of Xtend which allows users to participate in the compilation process through annotations.

Who Is Attending

If you plan on attending please add your name and company to the list below. You need to have an Eclipse Bugzilla account to do so. Signing up is really easy and not only gives you the chance to attend Eclipse DemoCamps, but also gives you the sweet fuzzy feeling of being able to file Eclipse bugs! Come on, give it a try - we know you can do it!
