JRebirth Workbench First Step

Today I share a short video about JRebirth Workbench work progression. I have uploaded it on YouTube some days ago but I didn’t blog about it.

I’ve just seen the Tom’s blog entry that demonstrated a really nice tweaked TabPane build with Jonathan and perhaps available soon in OpenJDK (see the blog entry here for more information).

My widget is not as nice as their but the major part of my work is related to integration into JRebirth Component project.

In 2 words you can consider that JRebirth [Core+Component] will do the same job than e4 by using a different approach ( A Model from JRebirth is equivalent to an e4 part).

PS: Some people can ask themselves why (TF***) I’m reinventing the wheel instead of using e4 whereas I’m also an Eclipse developer. The answer is given by the framework’s name itself ! I’m really confident that we can do complex things in a simple way and mainly thread-oriented.

I’m upset to see my Eclipse (IDE and RCP) lagging all the day… (and even crashing, Java8+Luna+m2e+W8 doesn’t work anymore on my laptop… 🙁 )

JRebirth running on Equinox

Today I want to share with you the newer JRebirth goal: Application Modularization

Please note that a new poll is published on the right bar related to this subject.

This teaser show Mastering Tables application (built with JRebirth Application Framework) run as an OSGI bundle into Equinox runtime (Eclipse’s OSGI framework) and for sure with Java 8 runtime.

Further developments will be made to improve integration (runtime & build) and to fix some small issues (like log localization failure).

No extra OSGI bundles have been used (only equinox and gogo console ones).

Let me know if you have any remark
