Hi all, I'm back from the dead :) I transitioned to a new job
within Lotus and start this month, my focus will be 100% OSGi Services
(Equinox), particuarly looking at the Declarative Services impl first ;)
I second the motion of having some conference calls to keep
everyone in touch.
Yes...it's a done deal. I'll send another email out with date/time
phone number for call.
I just gave a presentation today at the Rational Software Development
There was alot of positive feedback. There was someone in the audience
that was really interested in adding shared debugging support, I
pointed him to this mailing list so hopefully he'll swing by ;)
Excellent!! Shared debugging support would be *great*. Several of us
have been talking and thinking about the possibilities here for some
time. Also, there's a Google Summer of Code Project: "A Distributed
Object Application Debugger for the Eclipse Platform" see
quite the same idea, but related nonetheless.
Also, some of you may be interested in what I did on a 90 minute plane
ride. So, Wayne Beaton has this new RCP application (http://wbeaton.blogspot.com/2006/06/eclipse-sudoku.html)
which is a Sudoku RCP app. On my way over to the conference, I decided
to see if I could "ECF-enable" (by ECF enable, I mean I hacked in
datashare usage to allow for simple multiplayer sudoku, there are
threading issues though, probably the worst code I produced in a while,
etc etc...) this application (http://mea-bloga.blogspot.com/2006/06/sudoku-on-plane.html)
before my laptop battery died on the plane. It turns out I was
moderately successful, but the point being, I think if someone actually
had sometime to add in better UI for the ECF portion (add a little UI
to connect to a server, show who else is willing to do multiplayer
sudoku... etc...). I think this would make a great demo for what ECF
can do for RCP :) Plus, games are fun.
Agreed. This Sudoku impl with ECF looks really cool. Any chance to
get things checked into cvs? We can/will distribute as an example
Also, as a reminder. If people have spare cycles, the Summer of Code
students are usually on IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/#eclipse-soc). Any
help they can get would be great. Plus, the more ECF people on IRC, the
I'll be on the #eclipse-soc channel much more from here on out. I
setup an ECF autologin for that IRC channel.
Hope all is well for everyone.
You too Chris. Thanks and congrats on the Rational conference
presentation, the new tutorial work, and the cool Sudoku hacking.
Particularly with the recent advances in shared editing by Ken, your
work, and the exciting Google SOC projects, I think ECF is getting
somewhere (where that is I'm not completely sure, but it feels
good/right anyway :).
