Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

So we've finally reached the end of EclipseCon. Today everyone will be making their way back home. EclipseCon 2008 was a great success - more technical sessions, more open source projects, more BOFs, more parties, and just plain more.  Ian Skerrett breaks the numbers down by country in his blog.

[img_assist|nid=1337|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=314|height=91]Mark Melvin's presentation and source code are available on the EclipseCon website from his talk on creating extension points. Wayne Beaton wrote about the Eclipse Riena project. Fundamentally, Riena is about distributing services across tiers. It’s born from a need to have applications that are lighter than rich clients, but more functional and performant than light clients.

Wayne also blogged about Using ECF for Lightweight Distributed Team Collaboration.

Markus Kuppe wrote about e4 following the talks and BOFs on the subject. There's a link to the notes on the BOF also, in case you missed it. Tom Schindl also gives his views on e4.  

Markus Scheidgen point us to a tutorial on the Textual Editing Framework - if you have any interest in TEF it's a great read.
