The core strength of the Eclipse IDE has always been its adaptability and extensibility. Even without adding new plug-ins, you can customize almost everything by setting a preference. Additionally, there is a rich ecosystem of plug-ins for almost any imaginable task or activity a developer works on. This ranges from programming language support, SCM integration, [...]

Execution of JUnit Tests in a Single-Sourced Application

One strength of Eclipse is the possibility to use the same code on desktop clients as well as in web clients. The same application can run as an installed desktop application and in the web browser, with only few adjustments for both platforms. In our experience, about 80% to 90% of the code can run [...]

It’s cool tooling because it gives you full control over the OSGi instance to be launched.  You can choose the OSGi framework (e.g. Equinox or Felix), select the bundles to install and much more. But [...]

Equinox/RAP WAR deployment: an end to the pain

Please note: This post is outdated. Please read this post and do not follow the install instructions in this one. A few weeks ago I presented you my GSoC 2010 project.

Revamping Eclipse Examples?

Even though I’ve been involved in the Eclipse community for around 5 years, I’m still amazed by the projects that are hosted under the Eclipse umbrella.

Target Platform Templates For runtime projects, such as Riena, RAP and Equinox, the first hurdle a developer faces is to set-up the appropriate target platform. A target [...]
