TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW

 

Why Come to JBI Training for an Eclipse Course?

Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

To facilitate this type of event, a subject matter expert leads the training, hands-on labs and discussions to ensure course topics are covered in a meaningful, relevant and timely manner. Delegates may be able to bring their own practical requirements and work to the course if the subjects and course topics are suitable.  


AUDIENCE

Commercial software developers who need to develop plug-in / RCP applications for Eclipse.

Course Overview

The Eclipse platform / IDE is an open development platform, but it has been developed in such a way that its components can be used to build a multitude of varieties of client application. The Rich Client Platform (RCP) is essentially a set of plug-ins for developing rich client applications.

User Interfaces can be using the same toolkits and extension points. The two key plug-ins required are org.eclipse.ui and org.eclipse.core.runtime (and their prerequisites).

Rich client applications can use any API necessary, and may use any compatible plug-ins above the bare minimum, such as the Update Manager, and the Help UI.

Available as a public or closed course at our London training centre, our Eclipse Plug-in / RCP Training Course can be tailored to your team's requirements and delivered onsite as a bespoke, customised training course. The course contains several Java tutorials based on real-world scenarios.

This course has been developed for real-world, commercial scenarios by our expert instructors. See below for detailed syllabus. If you have a technical question, please email sales@jbinternational.co.uk

 

Hands-on Exercises

The completed exercises and solutions provide useful skeletons which can be used as a basis for the development of purpose built applications, including:
1. Code for database access
2. Code for a network client and server
3. Code for a graphical text editor

 

What you will learn

2. A good grasp of the basic syntax of the language, which is essential for the effective use of Java.
3. Experience in the use of object oriented technology.
4. The essential features of the Swing packages and the Java event model used to process user interaction.
