    JDT Embraces Java 9 - An insider's perspective

    schedule 11:30 AM - 11:50 AM place Grand Ball Room 2

    Eclipse Java Development Tooling or JDT has its own Java compiler at its core, aptly called the JDT Core consisting of the Java compiler and various tools including java model, search infrastructure, content assist, Abstract Syntax Tree Tools etc.  Java 9 is the latest entry in the Java world bringing along-with it a "module" of changes - so to speak.  Any change in the language standards affects JDT directly. While some of the earlier language specification changes affected only the compiler, Java 9, in contrast, has a direct impact on user who uses Eclipse IDE for creating and managing Java Projects. Java 9  introduces the concept of "Modules" which affects JDT from the compiler level to the project dependency layer affecting a normal user. Support for this feature will be dealt with, in detail, in this talk.

    This talk would start with a brief overview of the Java 9 features especially the "module" feature that have direct impact on Eclipse users,  describe the JDT support for features, touch upon some of the design aspects, and would conclude with a demo of Eclipse JDT for Java 9.

    Natural Language Based Query Engine for Eclipse Modeling Framework

    schedule 12:00 PM - 12:20 PM place Grand Ball Room 1

    Searching in big databases is the need of the hour. With ever growing applications and customer base, quicker search over the data helps you survive. Modeling Frameworks sit at the core of modern software. The increasing complexity of business requirements are reflected in the increasing complexity of the modeling framework. What if you could query the complex models within seconds? This is just one use case of VIATRA Query.

    VIATRA Query is an Eclipse project. Initially conceived by the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, VIATRA is an Event-driven and Reactive Model Transformation Platform.  We have used VIATRA Query to create a small search engine for Ecore models of EMF using Natural Language Based Rule Engine and would like to share our experience with it.

    VIATRA Query enables the user to query the EMF models without having to manually traverse them. Complex queries can be converted into patterns. Parameters to models can be passed at runtime, something which is crucial to any query engine. The idea of creating a search engine using VIATRA Query opens up new and innovative ideas of working with Eclipse Modeling Framework. To know more about the algorithm behind this technology or how we made it work, please join us at the Eclipse 2017 Summit!

  • schedule 12:00 PM - 12:20 PM place Grand Ball Room 2
    The Eclipse Foundation project Vert.x is a toolkit for developing polyglot reactive applications on the JVM. One can develop applications on Vert.x using not only JVM languages like Groovy, Ceylon but also languages like JavaScript and Ruby. Vert.x leverages event-driven and non-blocking techniques with the intention to help developers write high performant applications that are resource efficient.
    In this presentation, I will demonstrate the Vert.x way of architecting and developing applications. I will develop a few Verticles talking to each other through the event bus and expose the functionality through HTTP. I will use Groovy for most of my code examples along with JavaScript and Java to demonstrate the polyglot options.

    Language Server Protocol: Why the hype?

    schedule 01:30 PM - 02:15 PM place Grand Ball Room

    The Language Server Protocol developed by Microsoft for Visual Studio Code is a language and IDE agnostic protocol which clearly separates language semantics from UI presentation. Language developers can implement the protocol and benefit from immediate support in all IDEs, while IDE developers, who implement the protocol get automatic support for all these languages without having to write any language-specific code. This session will let you learn more about the innards of the LSP. We will also have an overview of the current implementations in Eclipse, and outside Eclipse as well.

    Towards a More Secure JDK

    schedule 02:30 PM - 02:50 PM place Grand Ball Room 1

    The last few years have seen new computing trends like increased use of mobile devices, big data and a world connected with internet. This has made Java applications vulnerable to threats and attacks. With time, holes get exposed in cryptographic algorithms and security protocols. They then need to be replaced with stronger alternatives. This session will show how safety mechanisms have been built into JDK to automatically protect applications from weak algorithms and protocols such as MD2, MD5, RC4, weak RSA/DSA keys and SSLv3. A wide variety of security controls have been made available which range from automatic defenses to user friendly APIs. Several new security controls have been introduced in Java 8 and Java 9 platforms like SHA-3 hash algorithms, OCSP stapling for TLS and DRBG SecureRandom implementation. This session will benefit Java developers by introducing them of the many defenses present and available in the Java ecosystem.

    World is moving fast towards parallelism. It will soon be seen that parallelism is the default nomenclature of the new software design. As a core member of Java Platforms Team, I want to bring the fact that how programming languages are leveraging the power the parallelism in this world of many core processors.

    Though parallelism is the new demand, it is extremely hard generate performance on parallelism. We need to learn "the best practices" for parallelism.

    Blockchain with Drones & 3D Printing - Trailblazing

    schedule 04:15 PM - 04:35 PM place Grand Ball Room 2

    The world is pivoting at insane speed. Start-up are  developing a blockchain-hosted registry and a protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT), unveiling a prototype drone delivery system using Ethereum.This basically means the shared state of the blockchain can handle the functionality of a general purpose computer, as opposed to the simple movement of coin transactions on Bitcoin.It also means  blockchain technology in interaction with a dynamic physical object and access control in real-time.These drones will need to be easily recognisable and securely verifiable to the infrastructure and machines with which they interact, and the systems and apps that arise to support IOT  will need to be completely interoperable with secure identities in order to support the interaction of numerous organisations, products, operating systems, and individuals. Similarly , 3D Printing and Blockchain networks are disruptive technologies…combining the two will undoubtedly revolutionize the future of manufacturing. We see the greatest threats to 3D-PRINTING  as cyber-physical hacking and counterfeiting. The deployment of a Blockchain can combat both. It’s very exciting technology. While the potential of this technology and its synergy with the 3D printing industry is fairly evident.

    The presentation I propose is a deep-dive of blockchain technology and its interactions with 3D Printing and Drones.

    Show and tell: Generator patterns and new use cases

    schedule 04:45 PM - 05:05 PM place Grand Ball Room 1

    While ES6 generator patterns are designed to empower javascript language with iteration capabilities on heterogenous data structures in custom mannaer, the event-driven asynchronous programming model of Node.js transforms this feature into an interesting semantics in the execution flow control with un-precedented potential in managing concurrency.

    The session talks about how the generator pattern helps in iterating over deeply nested structures in a repeatable manner which follows a yield-resume pattern. I show a couple of real-world use cases where this approach helps in addressing performance / scalability / concurrency issues in large scale node.js applications, with an associated demo.
