8 Hottest Classes at EclipseWorld

Dear Software Professional,

What topics are your colleagues signing up for at EclipseWorld??

  Here are the top eight classes and tutorials!
  Building Commercial-Quality Plug-Ins for Eclipse
– Clayberg, Rubel
A definitive, start-to-finish overview of building commercial-quality extensions for Eclipse. The instructors don’t merely introduce the basics; they’ll show you how to add the sophistication and “polish” that your end users demand.

In this full-day class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of plug-in development, with specific solutions for the challenges participants will most likely encounter. Session content is based on the popular book co-authored by Clayberg and Rubel, “Eclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins,” and is split between lecture and hands-on lab work. So, bring your laptop with Eclipse preinstalled and you’re ready to go!

Quick Tour of the Eclipse Web Tools Platform
– Ryman
The Eclipse Web Tools Platform provides a set of tools for developing standards-based multitier Java Web applications. The project contains tools for HTML, CSS, _javascript_, XML, XML Schema, Web services, servlets, JSP, EJBs and data access.

This session gives an overview of WTP 1.5, which is part of the Eclipse 3.2 simultaneous release, and demonstrates its main areas in a quick tour, which will show how to configure an application server, create a Web project, add and debug a JSP, perform database access and develop a Web service.

This is an introductory-level session aimed at developers and managers who are creating Web applications. No prior experience with WTP is required. After this session you will have a good understanding of the main functional components of WTP and how it can be used to develop Java Web applications. Another class to consider is 201, “How to Build Java Web Applications With Web Tools Platform.”

Facing JavaServer Faces Development With JSF Tools
– Jacobi
With a rapidly growing community of developers involved at different levels of the JavaServer Faces ladder, the demands for good tool support are increasing. This class is focusing on practical JSF development using the design-time features provided by the Eclipse JSF Tools Project. The class will cover JSF component design and design-time support for developers interested in writing their own JSF components.

By attending this intermediate-level class, you’ll gain a complete understanding of the JSF landscape, how to build a JSF application, what design-time support is available within the JSF Tools Project, and what is planned for future releases of the JSF Tools Project. You should already have at least a basic understanding of Java and Web development.

Consuming and Producing Web Services With Web Tools
– Judd
Do you want to know how to publish or consume Web services in Eclipse? It’s easy, if you use the Web Standard Tools and J2EE Standard Tools.

In this beginning-to-intermediate-level class, we will demonstrate how to consume Google’s popular searching Web service in Eclipse. Then we will learn how to expose application functionality written in Java as a Web service. You should already have basic knowledge about Eclipse and Web services.

Leveraging Model-Driven Development and the Eclipse Platform
– Sawicki
Model-driven development improves many of the practices and tools that organizations already have in place. The goal is to achieve higher levels of automation in the development process. Models act as the catalyst that, in combination with automated transformations, result in more accurate application design, better structural integrity of the implementation, higher quality and faster development.

This class covers the design and building of applications using a UML-driven approach within the Eclipse framework. The session takes you through the basics of developing a platform-independent domain model from which the various multitier infrastructure designs are generated.

We’ll examine the resulting application architecture as well as the code implementation, how to modify the application, and how design and infrastructure changes are iteratively applied to the application. By the end of this class, you’ll have a thorough understanding of the flexibility and agility of this development approach and how it can increase your team’s capabilities by an order of magnitude.

Developing Rich Applications With JSF and AJAX
– Katz
Asynchronous _javascript_ and XML, or AJAX, has taken the Web application development world by storm. And in the past year, JavaServer Faces has emerged as the standard essential technology for building richly interactive Web applications. When combined, we have access to the most powerful rich component-based approach for developing modern Web applications on the market today, allowing developers to create rich enterprise Web 2.0 applications.

This session will describe various AJAX frameworks and tools, explain the benefits and pitfalls of various approaches and show exactly how JSF and AJAX can work together to create enterprise Web 2.0 applications, all using easy-to-understand live examples. Developers will also get a good understanding of various commercial tools and how they can dramatically improve their ability and productivity.

Before attending this intermediate-level class, you should already have a good understanding of JavaServer Faces.

Advanced User Interface Programming Using the Eclipse Rich Client Platform
– Creasey
The Eclipse RCP user interface consists of both plug-in extensions to the platform and reusable user interface components. This talk will provide a more advanced look into the way an RCP UI application can be built.

We will cover some of the components in the Platform UI and the plug-in extensions that access them by taking an example written using just the JFace and SWT frameworks and integrating it into the Eclipse Platform. If you use RCP, you won’t want to miss this session.

Practical Design Patterns for Rich Client Development
– Maleh
Despite the passing of the 10th anniversary of the famous book “Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Design,” there remains a lack of understanding and experience in applying design patterns to common development problems—and Eclipse RCP development is no exception.

In this advanced class, you will see real-world examples clearly illustrating the benefits of applying design patterns, emphasizing patterns beneficial to RCP applications. The class will begin with a definition and brief history of design patterns, and an overview of their benefits; we’ll then jump right into specific patterns that help with Eclipse RCP projects.

To help demonstrate the benefits of design patterns, we’ll analyze RCP components written without design patterns, and examine problems encountered when attempting to add features to those components. Next, we’ll show how to fix those problems with just a few refactorings.
