Every year the Eclipse M7 milestone act as a very strong deadline for the projects which are part of the release train: it’s then time for polishing and refining! Time's up ! Pencils down, it's M7 ! — Cédric Brun (@bruncedric) 4 mai 2010 When your company is responsible for a number of inter-dependent projects some of them core technologies like EMF Services , the GMF Runtime, others user facing tools like Acceleo, Sirius or EcoreTools, packaging and integration oriented projects like Amalgam or the Eclipse Packaging project and all of these releases needs to be coordinated, then may is a busy month. This week: M7 milestones for EcoreTools, Amalgam, Sirius, testing the Modeling package. Plot twist: 3 work days ! pic.twitter.com/msqQkImRu4 — Cédric Brun (@bruncedric) 3 mai 2016 I’m personally involved in EcoreTools which makes me in the position to step in the role of the consumer of the other technologies and my plan for Oxygen was to make use of the Property Views support includ...

Back to the Future
Last week, Obeo sent me to San Jose, California to attend the 1st Eclipse Converge and Devoxx US which was really cool of them. It makes sense to co-locate those events as both involved Java developers and open source projects. I really believe that these communities have so many things to share that this week in California would be a great occasion to learn from each other. Eclipse Converge I started my week by attending Eclipse Converge, a one-day event dedicated to the Eclipse community and co-located with the IoT day. The number of Eclipse committers present was amazing, which was particularly noticeable thanks to the Eclipse committer swag, a cool purple hoodie! One thing I noticed is that this year for the first time, they have it in women sizes! This is one of those little things which helps our community to become more diverse! Thanks Eclipse Foundation, I love it so much! As all Eclipse events, it was a great moment of social networking, attending high quality talks, meetin...
At Obeo, we believe that modeling is the right way to help IT and industry engineers collaborate efficiently on the design of their smart products. Our innovative approach consists of building specific modeling tools that completely suit users’ business domains. Modeling is a means to an end: by using modeling technologies we make sure that such a tool can be defined faster, as well as deployed and maintained better. To achieve this goal, we develop highly customizable open source software, such as Eclipse Sirius. We consider that a modeling tool must be adaptable, flexible, and user-friendly. This year again, we worked hard to focus on that! As you may know, Sirius is the easiest way to get your own modeling tool and to do it rapidly. Indeed, it dramatically reduces the time spent on creating domain-specific modeling workbenches thanks to an interpretation mode that allows very short feedback-loops. In 2016, we invested time in the Eclipse Ecore Tools project to facilitate the def...

That’s too sad! EclipseCon Europe finished yesterday. It was again a great conference, with inspiring talks and excellent discussions with different members of the Eclipse community. These moments with our community are motivating us to prepare the future of Eclipse Sirius.  So what’s next? What would we cook for you in Eclipse Oxygen? As we already said in our talk, we are already preparing the future with Sirius 4.1 when we introduce the DRepresentationDescriptor. This internal change has no impact on normal users: it was made as a first step to prepare for better scalability down the road. For specifiers and developers who wrote code that depends on the internal organisation of the *.aird files, you may need to adapt your code. To learn more about the Sirius roadmap, be sure to not missed Cedric’s talk at SiriusCon. I will also give a talk with Stéphane specifically about the Properties view feature, we will detail what’s possible with this new feature: Let Sirius automatically ...

Do you ever feel that? This week I often dreamt I had the gift of ubiquity… I could replicate myself and be in several places at once. It would be a really useful skill to participate to EclipseCon Europe. I am angry to not be able to see all the talks I would have liked to attend. Happily, as every year all the slides will be available on the EclipseCon website and most of the talks are recorded and will be available on the Eclipse Foundation youtube channel. If you missed our talk yesterday, do not miss our slides available online.Lien d'origineAuteur d'origine: Melanie Bats...
