e4 @ Poznan JUG

Last Tuesday, I had the opportunity to speak at the Poznan JUG.

I cobbled up a presentation and demo about Eclipse e4 with the help of Boris Bokowski and Lars Vogel…

There was a lot of interest in e4 and people said they learned something new so I’m pleased. I also had the opportunity to meet Geertjan Wielenga from the Netbeans side of the world. He gave an interesting presentation on the status of the Netbeans platform and where they are headed. Good to see that Netbeans finally cares about OSGi… we had our own module system back in the day at Eclipse and realized that it’s better to just adopt a standard than hold onto your own. Anyways, kudos to the Netbeans team exposing OSGi to their user base. Ed Burns gave an interesting talk about the history of user interfaces and ways to classify them via an ontology, fascinating stuff.

On the whole, a special thanks to Adam Dudczak and the rest of the Poznan JUG team for the invite.

    I'm not so sure, OSGI is so perfect. after all the several past years showed us plenty of integration problems in eclipse rcp, uncompatibilities between modules was a day routine.
    On the other side Netbeans Platform never suffered of such problems.
    I believe they made the right choice to not integrate osgi too soon. Even now I'll still remain on NBM system which never failed me.

    Thanks Lars. Without you and Boris' help in the last minute with the slides I'd have to talk about boring API Tools instead of exciting e4 :)
