This tutorial series introduces the new features and concepts of the Eclipse 4 Application Platform, as well as interesting tools and technologies related to the current major release of Eclipse. In the first three parts of this series we covered the following topics: the core of every Eclipse 4 application, the application model; the connection of this model with actual implementations; and the options for modularization of the model.
In most of the programming examples provided, we implicitly used a further innovation of Eclipse 4: dependency injection (DI). DI plays a central role in Eclipse 4, reason enough to devote a whole tutorial to this. This tutorial describes:
- Which objects can be injected.
- How the Eclipse Context works.
- Which annotations can be used to influence the injection.
- How the Eclipse Context can be extended.
- How the injection can be triggered manually.
You will find this tutorial and many more on our new tutorial site on developers.eclipsesource.com.
Additionally, I am writing a series in the German „Eclipse Magazin“
