The Swiss Federal Railway and NASA team up to present how Eclipse RCP has made an impact on technical solutions for operations of railroads and robots.
SBB Infrastruktur operates the railway network with the highest utilization in the world: every day 9,000 trains travel on routes with an overall length of 3,000 km. From the beginning, the Eclipse IDE was used as the development platform - Eclipse RCP is the foundation of the RCS user interfaces. The first part of this talk is an Eclipse consumer story with a strong technical focus on railroad networks as well as some Eclipse RCP aspects of the project.
Since Eclipse 3.0, NASA has used the Rich Client Platform to build software tools to operate the Mars Exploration Rovers. The second part of this talk will give an overview of the many new projects that are enabled by the Eclipse platform and related technologies. We will discuss how NASA has used many Eclipse projects in its software tools including RCP, EMF, GEF, GMF, CDO, OSGi-ReST and the SWT-OpenGL binding. See how Eclipse is helping us explore worlds beyond our home planet.
