Mylar is a task focused UI for Eclipse that makes working with very large
workspaces as easy as working with small ones. It makes tasks a first
class part of Eclipse, and integrates task repositories such as Bugzilla,
Trac, and JIRA. Once your tasks are integrated, Mylar monitors your work
activity to identify information relevant to the task-at-hand. Mylar uses
this task context to focus the Eclipse UI on the interesting information,
hide the uninteresting, and automatically find what's related. This puts
the information you need to get work done at your fingertips and improves
productivity by reducing searching, scrolling, and navigation. By making
task context explicit Mylar also facilitates multitasking, planning,
reusing past efforts, and sharing expertise.

This webinar will demonstrate what it is like to work with Mylar when
developing Java, Plug-in, and J2EE apps. Views such as the Package
Explorer, Outline, and Resource Navigator show only the elements relevant
to the task-at-hand. The editor folds away uninteresting members and
automatically unfolds those in the task context. JUnit integration
maintains a suite of tests affected by your current task context. Active
Search makes you aware of related elements whether they are in Java, JSP,
or XML files. CVS integration makes it possible to synchronize only the
tasks' resources. Working with issue trackers like Bugzilla and JIRA
becomes a seamless part of task management, and planning is assisted by
reports of your task activity. Recalling and sharing task contexts makes
picking up where you or someone else left off effortless.

In addition, the Mylar model and architecture will be presented in order
to provide a starting point for those interested in extending Mylar or
integrating it with other Eclipse-based tools.

Special thanks to Adobe for contributing access to their Macromedia Breeze
meeting service to host this webinar.
