Meet the RAP team at EclipseCon Europe 2011

October 26, 2011 | 2 min Read

If you’re interested in the latest news on RAP, consider joining us at EclipseCon Europe next week in Ludwigsburg. There are quite a number of RAP talks this year:

On Thursday morning, Paul Petershagen of Vitaphone, a global provider of solutions in the telemedicine sector, will share their experience with a large RAP/RCP single-sourcing project. This is an good example of the power of single-sourcing. Paul also has some insights and figures from the project manager’s perspective.

Later that day, Frank Appel, one of our project pioneers, and me will show how RAP now supports the development of lightweight, modular, and dynamic web applications based on OSGi. This talk is 30 minutes so will not go into too much technical detail - instead, we’ll  show some cool examples and explain the new possibilities.

For those who want to understand the technical side better and try out the new features right away, we offer a 1.5 hours hands-on tutorial on Friday. In this tutorial, we’ll show how to create and structure your RAP project, and also how to build and deploy it using tycho. Frank, Rüdiger, Holger, and me will be around so you will have first-class support. By the way, did you know that RAP finally supports clustering? If you have specific questions about this feature, Friday is your chance to meet Rüdiger, who has been working on this stuff over the last months.

And, last but not least, we are happy that another Eclipse project has decided to build on RAP: the Scout project provides a framework for rapid development of complete enterprise applications. With the upcoming Juno release, Scout will provide a RAP integration. Project leads Matthias Zimmermann and Andreas Hoegger will present “the best of both worlds” on Thursday afternoon.

You will always find one of us at the EclipseSource booth. I hope to meet you in Ludwigsburg!
