And, I’m definitely looking forward to presenting three topics! On Tuesday the conference starts with the tutorials and we start with our tutorial on AngularJS - What every Java developer should know about AngularJS. This tutorial specifically addresses Java/Eclipse developers...

Over three years ago, we started the explicit development of EMF Forms as a sub component of the EMF Client Platform. The goal was to ease the development of data-centric form-based UIs based on a given EMF data model. Rather than manually coding UIs (e.g. in SWT), the approach is to describe them declaratively in a simple model language, which is focussed on the specification...

It allows to declaratively define the content and layout of a form and to embed the form into your HTML with one simple <jsonforms> tag. If you would like to know more about JSONForms here is an introduction. Also the JSONForms homepage is a good starting...

During this time, it has become one of the most active and well-received projects in the Eclipse community. Instead of manually coding UIs, the framework allows to describe forms via a simple view model, which is interpreted by a rendering components. This approach worked particularly well, besides saving a...

In contrast to object mappers such as Gson or Jackson, Minimal JSON does not more than reading a JSON text into a memory-efficient Java representation that can be accessed, modified and serialized to JSON again. You can see some code examples on the project page. We're using this...

Creating modern applications often involves consuming REST based web services. One of the more popular ways to publish a REST service in Java is the JAX-RS (Jersey) specification. It allows you to very easily enhance your REST resources with Java annotations. In many cases REST is used in combination with the JSON document format. In order to produce JSON via JAX-RS, one could simply create a...
