Eclipse 4 RCP Tutorial updated to M7 and Eclipse 4 book (Early Access Version) soon available

I updated the Eclipse 4 RCP Tutorial to Eclipse 4.2 M7.

This week I’m in the process of delivering a 5 days Eclipse 4 training together with Marcel Bruch and M7 really shines in terms of stability.

M7 contains lots of small enhancements which make adapting Eclipse 4 much nicer, my personal favorite is Bug report: Application.e4xmi should be optional for which Sopot Cela provided a patch. With this patch you can convert an Eclipse plug-in into an Eclipse 4 application without creating manually any extension in the plugin.xml file.

Please give Eclipse 4 M7 a try and report bugs you find in Bugzilla.

I also thinks its about time to release my Eclipse 4 book for the Kindle. This will be an “Early Access Version” due to the fact that Eclipse 4 is still not final and that certains chapters still need some rework but should hopefully be a good reference. I plan to provide updates for this version once Eclipse 4 is released via the Kindle store.

I hope that I will be able to publish this version of the Eclipse 4 book next week. Fingers crossed. :-)

  1. Michel Parisien says:

    Would your book be available for the kindle only?

  2. Lars Vogel says:

    @Michel: Draft version, only Kindle so that I can push updates via Amazon. Once Eclipse 4 is released I publish a iPad and paper version.

  3. Dave Henderson says:

    Do you have any idea what the kindle e4 book will cost?

  4. Dave Henderson says:

    @Lars: Lol 😉

  5. Daniel Stainhauser says:

    I’m awaiting your book wishfully, so I hope you get your first version finished this week. If you need an informal reviewer, let me know.

  6. Sopot Cela says:

    @Lars: iPad has a nice Kindle app for .mobi books so that wouldn’t be a problem.
