Tasktop continues to support the Eclipse community through thought leadership
and sharing of best practices
WHO: Steffen Pingel – Senior Software Engineer, Tasktop Technologies
Benjamin Muskalla – Software Engineer, Tasktop Technologies
Tasktop Technologies is the company behind the Eclipse Mylyn ALM integration framework and innovative task-focused interface. It provides desktop and enterprise-grade solutions that improve productivity, collaboration and Agile ALM success. Muskalla and Pingel will present the following sessions at EclipseCon Europe 2011.
WHAT: Experiences from Migrating Mylyn to Git and Tycho
November 2, 16:30 – 17:00
Until the recent restructuring of Mylyn, numerous committers and contributors have evolved its source code for more than six years in a single CVS module relying on a monolithic command-line driven PDE build, understood by one committer, executable on a single machine. Step-by-step the project was modularized, the build was migrated to Tycho and sources were moved into Git. Hudson jobs now execute on each commit and reproducible releases can be triggered by anyone. This talk highlights decisions taken and discusses lessons learned. Attendees will get an overview of Mylyn’s build system, with a focus on knowledge that attendees can apply to their own project.
What the heck are logical models?
November 3, 16:00 – 16:30
Did you ever break the code or your models in your SCM? Giving the complexity of today’s software systems, physical files are not the only asset in your version control system. During this session Muskalla will give an overview of how Logical Models can better manage the complexity of their systems and how plugin developers can leverage the functionality the Platform provides.
Pimp your Productivity with Git, Gerrit, Hudson and Mylyn
November 4, 10:30 – 11:30
The Git distributed versioning system is being increasingly adopted by the developer community. Using Git for version control makes Gerrit the natural choice for code reviews. Besides source code, requirements and build artifacts play an important role in the development cycles that are now often managed in Hudson and Bugzilla. This session will demonstrate how the tools available within the Mylyn project work together to seamlessly integrate development artifacts in Eclipse, while providing traceability all the way from requirement to the final merge into the production branch.
Task-focused modeling with Mylyn, EMF and Papyrus
November 4, 13:30 – 14:00
To bring the productivity benefits of the task-focused interface to engineers using Eclipse-based modeling technologies, Mylyn created a “Context Bridge” for EMF-based models and diagram editors. The result is a focused mode for diagrams that shows only the elements related to the task-at-hand. This session showcases the use of the task-focused interface within the Ecore Tools and the Papyrus UML Editor. In addition, it outlines the aspects of bringing the task-focused interface to model and diagram editors, and provides a quick overview of how to enable these for each diagram type.
