Welcome to the Confluence Wiki of the Eclipse Practical 2012/2013. What this Wiki is all about:
- It's the place where we post important information on the practical, such as due dates and similar information.
- It's also the place where we post tutorials on developing Eclipse applications. You will spend the first part of the practical working through the tutorials before starting your individual projects.
- And finally, it's the place where each group will document their project.
About This Practical
This practical will give you an introduction to programming Eclipse applications. The first half will consist of tutorials on different parts of Eclipse programming, each accompanied by an introductory presentation by Miro or Christoph Daniel. Each participant will work on the tutorials on his or her own, handing in his or her results a week later. For the second half of the tutorial you will be working in groups on projects that will allow you to apply your new Eclipse knowledge.
This is what we want the practical to teach you:
- Version management with Git.
- Programming Eclipse with several important technologies:
- Plug-in architecture (plug-ins, extension points, extensions, ...)
- Programming GUIs (SWT, JFace, menu contributions, views, editors, ...)
- Modeling components (EMF, GMF, ...)
- Model transformations and DSLs (Xtext, Xtend)
- Eclipse e4 application model?
- Working in groups and self-organization
Here's the list of tutorials you will be working through during the first part of the practical. Click a tutorial's name to navigate to its Wiki page. We will add the tutorials as the practical progresses. Each tutorial comes with two dates: the posted date, specifying when you may start working on it; and the due date, specifying when the tutorial is due to be handed in. Please resist the temptation to start working on tutorials before they have been officially posted; those are still being worked on and may change, rendering your previous work obsolete. In fact, tutorials that haven't been written yet can still change alltogether.

We will hold regular meetings each Monday from 16:00 to 17:30 in room 1118. The meetings will usually consist of a presentation about the next tutorial or a presentation of one of the groups.
We have weekly review sessions where each group presents its results to either Miro or Christoph Daniel. Those will be held each Thursday from about 10:00 to 11:00, with each review session scheduled at a certain time.
