In order to be the next generation platform for pervasive, component-based applications and tools, Eclipse e4 needs to adapt to the many environments in which it will run. In this talk, we will highlight the limitations of Platform Resources today, and explain how e4 will address these:
- Physical project nesting
- Symbolic links and other kinds of aliases
- Scaling up
- Becoming more asynchronous
- Remote development
We will especially focus on the core concepts in resources and dive into proposed API changes. After the talk, attendees will understand the big picture of e4 resources, how to apply it to their environments and where it may be interesting for them to contribute.
