Editor's Note

EclipseCon Europe 2017 is upon us! It's our biggest event of the year and it starts next week, on October 24 in Germany. There's so much to learn at the conference. We asked some speakers to write about topics they will be presenting to give those of you who can't attend a taste of the content. View talk list.

Read on to learn all you need to know about JUnit 5, e4 on JavaFX, scripting with EASE, embedded tools and Eclipse CDT, the Ferret search tool, and software ethics. We will be filming the EclipseCon Europe talks, so stay tuned for those.

We launched our yearly donation campaign this month. Great news, you can now donate via credit card without PayPal! Power the Eclipse Community by donating today.

Embracing JUnit 5 with Eclipse

JUnit 5 is out the door as the next generation test framework! Here are some tips and examples to help you work with it.

e4 on JavaFX

Develop applications and write 100% framework free business components with e4 on JavaFX.

Scripting Eclipse – just rapid prototyping?

Scripting is powerful. Learn more about scripting itself and about the Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment (EASE).

15 Years of Open Source Embedded Tools at Eclipse

Eclipse CDT is the industry standard C/C++ IDE powering the design and development of embedded systems worldwide.

Avoid disorientation with Ferret, a powerful search tool

Discover Ferret, a conceptually simple software exploration tool that seeks to summarize how a program element relates to the rest of the software system.

Why Software Ethics Matter

Software is impacting every area of our lives and will be even more omnipresent in the future. How can we be more ethical about it all?

Each month, we will post the most popular YouTube video from the Eclipse Foundation YouTube Channel here.

New Project Proposals

  • Eclipse EE4J: Eclipse Enterprise for Java (EE4J) is an open source initiative to create standard APIs, implementations of those APIs, and technology compatibility kits for Java runtimes that enable development, deployment, and management of server-side and cloud-native applications. EE4J is based on the Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) standards, and uses Java EE 8 as the baseline for creating new standards.
  • Eclipse Deeplearning4j: enables developers and large organizations to build deep learning applications, covering the whole deep learning workflow from data preprocessing through distributed training and hyperparameter optimization and production-grade deployment.
