Borland President and CEO to Keynote EclipseCon 2006; Borland to Preview ''Project Peloton'' and Showcase New Modeling Project for the Eclipse Platform
In a keynote entitled "Eclipse Lessons for Enterprise Development," Nielsen will explain his view into how open source and Eclipse are changing the fundamental way software is developed, and how Borland and others are applying lessons from the open source community within the world of commercial software. The keynote will be held on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. PST.
“We're very pleased with their contributions to the Eclipse community, such as the Graphical Modeling Framework project, as well as how they're leveraging the Eclipse framework within their own Application Lifecycle Management and IDE offerings.”
"The Eclipse Foundation has grown and flourished due to outstanding contributors like Borland Software," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "We're very pleased with their contributions to the Eclipse community, such as the Graphical Modeling Framework project, as well as how they're leveraging the Eclipse framework within their own Application Lifecycle Management and IDE offerings."
Borland's Project Peloton, which is currently under development, will be shown at Borland booths #410 and #412. Project Peloton combines Borland's extensive experience building award-winning IDEs with Eclipse technologies to provide a rich user experience with two-way Web Services and EJB designers, collaborative features similar to JBuilder 2006's peer-to-peer capabilities, among others.
On Monday and Tuesday of the conference, Borland will also team with engineers from IBM Rational to provide an introduction and tutorial of the Graphical Modeling Framework project, a new project within Eclipse that provides a generative component and runtime infrastructure for developing graphical editors based on Eclipse's EMF and GEF projects.
-- On Monday, March 20 at 1:30 p.m. PST, for those already familiar with GMF, Borland's Artem Tikhomirov and IBM Rational's Frederic Plante and Steven R. Shaw will present "Creating your own Domain Specific Modeler using GMF." This presentation offers an overview of GMF and insights into creating your own domain model, graphical definition, tooling definition and mapping models.
-- On Tuesday, March 21 at 2:15 p.m. PST, Borland's Richard Gronback will present an "Introduction to the Graphical Modeling Framework," with IBM Rational's Frederic Plante. This session will provide a brief history of GMF including what it does and why, and will explore the runtime component and the framework itself before concluding with a demonstration of the much-anticipated technology.
