Eclipse (part 1)
Tuesday 10:45 - 12:00 (Tools Room)

Eclipse ( is an open source platform for building tools for developers in Java. The platform was designed from the ground-up with extensibility in mind. At its core is a scalable plug-in mechanism and a rich set of published APIs. Almost everything in Eclipse is done by contributing plug-ins to a tiny little kernel. Many Eclipse plugins exist today ranging from full blown commercial products to small experimental extensions. Eclipse itself comes with a set of plugins that extend the platform into a full blown Java development environment. The first part of the talk gives a technical overview of Eclipse architecture and presents the Eclipse project. In the second part we take a closer look at the plug-in mechanism and describe how to write plug-ins and how to contribute to Eclipse. It presents the design philosophy and rules you should follow when extending Eclipse so that you can play nicely in Eclipse's sandbox.
