Eclipse vs. The Mobile World
Let’s face it: Creating complex applications with plain widgets is really hard. As a result UI frameworks like the Eclipse Workbench were created. But we are not in the 2000s anymore and the Eclipse Workbench paradigm does not fit well into the world of web and mobile applications because it was made for desktops. Those platforms come with their own UI components and navigation concepts. In the meantime these concepts are ubiquitous but simply non existent on the desktop. So, how can we survive in this world as Java developers?
In this session we will show you how to serve multiple mobile platforms natively while writing the code only once using Java and SWT. We’ll use well-known Eclipse technologies like Eclipse RAP. To show you the power of Eclipse in the mobile world you will see applications ranging from a small hello world up to the full fledged business application based on alternative RAP clients.
