Eclipse is most commonly known as Java IDE. However, it is a lot more than that. It can be used as a platform for Rich Client Applications as well as functionally extended via its plug-in architecture. Almost everything in Eclipse is implemented as an Eclipse plug-in in one way or another. These components provide a myriad of specialized functionality and Extension Points allowing the gifted developer to implement almost anything they've set their mind to.

In this hands-on lab some of the cool new features of Eclipse Kepler are demonstrated. Have you ever considered using Eclipse CDT + Linux Tools for C/C++ development? CDT + Linux Tools bring profiling and memory corruption detection support directly into your IDE. Are you a Java developer using Eclipse? How efficient are you browsing the code base you are working on day-to-day? Learn how to use Eclipse's core features in order to increase your productivity as a Java developer. Did you know that E4, the new face of Eclipse, allows you to make your Eclipse based application look the way you want it to look? Gone are the days where you could spot Eclipse based applications right away. With E4 and CSS you can achieve this by simply shipping your own CSS file along with your application.

This session also gives an introduction to developing an Eclipse Plug-in. In order to get the most out of this session, helpful tools for developing Eclipse plug-ins are introduced along the way.

Language: English
Audience: Java/C/C++ developers && anyone interested in Eclipse Plug-in development
