As Eclipse is established as a tooling platform in automotive industry, the EclipseCon Europe conference in Ludwigsburg is an invaluable source of information. This year’s EclipseCon is full of interesting talks. Here is a selection from my “automotive tooling / methodology” perspective.
The Car – Just Another Thing in the Internet of Things? –
Michael Würtenberger is the head of BMW CarIT. In addition to the interesting talk, BMW CarIT was also one of the strong drivers of the Eclipse / EMF based AUTOSAR tooling platform “Artop” and it is very interesting to learn about their topics.
openETCS – Eclipse in the Rail Domain,
Rover Use Case, Specification, design and implementation using Polarsys Tools
Scenarios@run.time – Modeling, Analyzing, and Executing Specifications of Distributed Systems
The multiple facets of the PBS (Product Breakdown Structure)
openMDM5: From a fat client to a scalable, omni-channel architecture
Enhanced Project Management for Embedded C/C++ Programming using Software Components
All industries are also looking into what the “other” industry is doing to learn about strength and weaknesses.
Brace Yourself! With Long Term Support: Long-Term-Support is an important issue when choosing a technology as strategic platform. This talk should provide information to use in discussions when arguing for/against Eclipse and Open Source.
The Eclipse Way: Learn and understand how Eclipse manages to develop such a strong ecosystem
My experience as an Eclipse contributor:
As more and more companies from the automotive domain actively participate in Open Source, you will learn on what that means from a contributor’s view.
On the technical side, a lot of talks are of interest for automotive tooling, including:
Ecore Editor- Reloaded
CDO’s New Clothes
GEF4 – Sightseeing Mars
All Sirius Talks
All Xtext Talks
Customizable Automatic Layout for Complex Diagrams Is Coming to Eclipse
Since EMF is a major factor in Eclipse in automotive, these talks provide interesting information on modeling automotive data.
EMF Compare + EGit = Seamless Collaborative Modeling
News from Git in Eclipse
Tailor-made model comparison: how to customize EMF Compare for your modeling language
Storing models in files has many advantages over storing them in a database. These technologies help in setting up a model management infrastructure that satisfies a lot of requirements.
40 features/400 plugins: Operating a build pipeline with high-frequently updating P2 repositories
POM-less Tycho builds
Oomph: Eclipse the Way You Want It
High productivity development with Eclipse and Java 8
Docker Beginners Tutorial
These will introduce the latest information on build management and development tools.
Of course there are a lot more talks at EclipseCon that are also of interest. Checkout the program. It is very interesting this year.
