Each year Google hosts an Eclipse Day and puts together an agenda that includes Eclipse and Google related topics. This year there will be presentations that feature Android, Helios, GWT, EGit, Linux Tools, Eclipse 4.0, EMF, XText and more. Sonatype’s founder, Jason van Zyl, will be presenting on Next Generation Development Infrastructure with Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus and Hudson.
This talk focuses on the Maven Ecosystem and the under-pinnings of technologies that are going to shape the Next Generation Maven Development Stack. While the Maven 3 release retains backward-compatibility with plugins written for Maven 2, the foundational technologies used in Maven are being recast to allow for more space for expansion as Maven starts to expand into newer spaces like OSGi and Polyglot development. In this talk, van Zyl discusses new, emerging technologies and how they fit into the overall approach to the development of a Next Generation Maven Development Stack. This presentation will include an overview of the following technologies:
Moving Maven from Plexus to Guice
Continued work to support OSGi development with Tycho
Support for Polyglot development and alternative languages
m2eclipse, the primary Eclipse IDE Maven-integration used at Sonatype which is also integrated with STS and JBoss Tools.
This August Sonatype will be presenting at Eclipse Day hosted by Google in Mountain View, California. Each year Google hosts an Eclipse Day and puts together an agenda that includes Eclipse and Google related topics. This year there will be presentations that feature Android, Helios, GWT, EGit, Linux Tools, Eclipse 4.0, EMF, XText and more.
Sonatype founder Jason van Zyl will be presenting on next generation development infrastructure with Maven, M2Eclipse, Nexus and Hudson. This presentation will show how to employ best practices when using these tools individually as well as together, as a powerful set.
All development organizations eventually converge on a set of tools to reduce costs, lower onboarding time, and leverage knowledge in strong communities to create standard processes. To this end we see in many organizations the emergence of a standard development stack consisting of Maven, M2Eclipse, Nexus & Hudson. Sonatype itself leverages this stack on a daily basis and this discussion will focus not only on the tools individually, but how they can work together to create a best practices approach to building and delivering your software in your organization.
Eclipse Day takes place on August 26, 2010 in Mountain View, California. For more information please visit the Sonatype events page. We hope to see you there!
The Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) release added a new, easier way to install the m2eclipse plugin. If you want to start using m2eclipse, download Eclipse 3.6 (Helios), and use the Eclipse Marketplace. To open the Eclipse Marketplace, go to the Eclipse Help menu and select Eclipse Marketplace…
The Open Source aficionados at Red Hat are hosting an Eclipse DemoCamp in Toronto, Ontario on Tuesday June 29. Red Hat works to bridge between the communities that create open source software and the enterprise customers who use it. They make the rapid innovation of open source technology consumable in mission-critical, enterprise environments.
Sonatype is also committed to fostering growth and innovation within the open source community. Recently Andrew Overholt from Red Hat attended the Sonatype and Eclipse Maven Meetup in Guelph, Ontario. And this Tuesday Sonatype’s Jason van Zyl will attend the Red Hat hosted Eclipse DemoCamp. Jason will give a presentation on m2eclipse and Tycho.
The DemoCamp takes place on Tuesday June 29 at 6:30pm. The event takes place at 2323 Yonge Street, Suite 300 Toronto.
