After the Galileo release, the learning continues - join the Eclipse Foundation for its next two webinars coming up in July:
Single Sourcing: Extend your RCP Application to the Web with RAP
July 9, 2009 at 9:00 am PST / 12:00 pm EST / 4:00 pm GMT
Presented by Ralf Sternberg and Ruediger Herrmann

The Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) was designed to bridge the gap between desktop- and web-development. To achieve this, RAP reuses the RCP development model integrating the largest possible subset of the RCP-APIs. This webinar will explore the differences between RAP and RCP that are especially relevant to the goal of single sourcing as much code as possible. It will cover a range of techniques and basic patterns to close the gap between RCP and RAP, for both existing RCP applications and new RCP/RAP projects. It will also take a look at the roadmap for RAP as well as discussing possible steps for integrating the platform into e4.
Xtext: Developing Domain Specific Languages
July 15, 2009 at 10:00 am PST / 1:00 pm EST / 5:00 pm GMT
Presented by Sven Efftinge and Heiko Behrens

Xtext is a component in the Modeling/TMF subproject and makes the development of textual domain specific languages (DSLs) straightforward. Just describe your very own language using Xtext's simple EBNF grammar language and the generator will create a parser, an AST-meta model (implemented in EMF), as well as a full-featured Eclipse text editor from that. This webinar will explain what DSLs are and how you can benefit from them in today's software development projects. The webinar closes with some more advanced show cases to give a glimpse of what Xtext is able to do.
