Editor's Note

It's the end of the year already. Can you believe it? We're sending the newsletter a bit early this month, to give you time to read it before you rush off on your wonderful holiday.

This month the newsletter is dedicated to Capella, an open source workbench based on Eclipse technology that allows engineers to design complex systems.

Included below are six articles that describe the industrial needs addressed by Capella, the methodology and the features of this tool, and its ecosystem (add-ons, related technologies, working group, etc.).

To learn even more about Capella, plan to attend the Capella Day on March 13, 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany. For details on this event and more, follow @Capella_Arcadia on Twitter.

Happy Holidays!

Eclipse Java IDE Tips & Tricks

Here is this month's tip in action ➡

Does your typing speed go down when typing a 'for' loop syntax? The Eclipse Java IDE can build it in milliseconds. Just type 'for' and Ctrl+Space. It even does nesting (i,j etc.)!
