Introduction to Eclipse Cloud Developer Tooling


In this tutorial, we will walk through an overview of the major cloud developer tooling technologies available at the Eclipse Foundation. Bring your laptop and come take a cloud developer tooling test drive! We will walk through a series of simple exercises using the following technologies:

  • Eclipse Che: a cloud IDE and a platform for creating cloud IDE extensions. Che ships with 55 extensions for Java, JavaScript, AngularJS, git, and Docker.
  • Eclipse Orion: Browser-based development tools for JavaScript, Web, and Node.js development
  • Eclipse Dirigible: a cloud IDE that supports a full development lifecycle of on-demand applications leveraging in-system programming models and rapid application development techniques
  • Eclipse Flux: a messaging bus that enables interoperability between desktop and cloud development tools and between development micro-services

In our final exercise, we will demonstrate how some of these different cloud development tools can be used together to support an end to end software development scenario. No previous knowledge of Orion or other Eclipse tools is required. Some basic knowledge of Java, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be helpful. Attendees should bring a laptop with a modern browser (latest Chrome or Firefox preferred).
