Eclipse Webinars

Looking to learn more about the different projects involved in Callisto? We are running a series of free webinars to help you better understand how you can use the different Eclipse projects. Take a look below and sign-up today.

Special thanks to Adobe for contributing access to their Macromedia Breeze meeting service to host these webinars.

Using the Eclipse Modeling Frameworks

Webinar Recording

  • Presenters: Ed Merks and Richard Gronback, Eclipse Modeling Project Co-leaders

  • There is great potential with model-driven development techniques to reduce the complexity and effort required to develop high quality applications, while promoting a focus on domain models. The new Eclipse Modeling Project aims to unify and promote such technologies within the Eclipse community, with two important projects presented here to illustrate the potential of the approach.

    The Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) is a modeling framework and code generation facility for building tools and other applications based on a structured data model. From a model specification described in one of several supported formats, EMF provides tools and runtime support to produce a set of Java classes for the model, a set of adapter classes that enable viewing and command-based editing of the model, and a basic editor.

    The Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) provides a generative component and runtime infrastructure for developing graphical editors based on EMF and the Graphical Editing Framework (GEF). GMF is therefore complementary to EMF, and also leverages several of the EMF Technology (EMFT) projects, such as OCL, Query, Validation, and Transaction.

    In this webinar, a domain model will be developed using EMF, resulting in a generated set of model and edit code. A graphical editor for this domain model will also be defined and generated using GMF to illustrate how model-driven development techniques are currently being used within the context of the Eclipse Modeling Project.

Building Data Centric RCP Applications

Webinar Recording

  • Presenters: John Graham, DTP PMC Leader,
    Linda Chan, DTP PMC and BIRT Committer,
    Jason Weathersby, BIRT PMC

  • Learn how to use the new Data Tools Platform (DTP) and Business Intelligence and Report Tools (BIRT) to create stand alone desktop applications that run on Eclipse RCP. The webinar will describe how to use the DTP data access capability to connect to multiple data stores and then create dynamic reports using BIRT.

Developing and Profiling Web Services

Webinar Recording

  • Presenters: Kathy Chan, WTP and Valentian Popsescu, TPTP

  • The Web services tool in WTP allows the user to develop and consume Web services. It also lets the user easily monitor the SOAP traffic, test the Web services using the Web Services Explorer or using the generated sample JSPs. Come to this webinar to learn to use the newly updated Web services tools in WTP 1.5.

    The TPTP tools can be used to analyze the Web application execution and look for performance hot spots or memory leaks.

    In this webinar, the Web services tools will be used to develop a Web service from a WSDL file and to test the Web service using the Web Services Explorer. The Web services tools will then be used to generate a Web service client proxy to talk to the Web service and invoke it using the generated sample JSP while monitoring the SOAP traffic using the TCP/IP monitor. Afterwards, the TPTP tool will be used to start profiling the Web application and to set the profiling filters and options. Then, various TPTP views will be used to analyze the application execution and look for performance hot spots.
