Today it is official, my company vogella Gmbh has been founded. Founding members are Jennifer Nerlich and myself.
The goal of vogella GmbH is to provide services around Eclipse and Android.
I’m glad to announce that Jennifer Nerlich joins the vogella team. Jennifer will take over the following areas: financials, customer relationships and sales.
Jennifer used to work for SAP. During her 9 years at SAP she took different roles like; development, consulting and product management.
Welcome Jennifer to the vogella Team!
Finally, I can announce that the first version of the Eclipse 4 RCP Book is available.
Not everything is completely polished, but it should be already a good starting point to develop Eclipse RCP applications with the Eclipse 4 framework. Once Eclipse 4 is officially released I will publish an update of the Kindle version which the buyers will get for free. Also after the official release I plan to publish a paper version.
Short content description:
This book gives a detailed introduction into the Eclipse 4 platform and covers all relevant aspects of Eclipse 4 development. It assumes no previous experience with Eclipse plug-in or Eclipse RCP development.
This description usually covers in a theoretical part the concepts of a specific topic and afterwards provides exercises and tutorials to practise these concepts.
After a short introduction into the Eclipse platform, you will create your first Eclipse 4 application using a project generation wizard. You will export this application as standalone application to finish a full development cycle early.
After this first fast development cycle, you will create a larger Eclipse 4 application. This application will be extended and reworked to cover all relevant aspects of the Eclipse 4 platform.
For example you will learn about the application model, SWT, JFace, OSGi services, Dependency Injection, Databinding, Internationalization, CSS styling and much more.
Many thanks to Mike Milinkovich for providing a foreword. I would like to thank Remy Suen, Paul Webster, Brian de Alwis, Tom Schindl, Eric Moffat, Kai Tödter and Boris Bokowski from the e4 development team for their shared efforts and their support in answering my questions over the last years. I’m very much impressed by their friendliness and knowledge.
A special thank you goes to Eric Moffat, Rabea Gransberger, Marcel Bruch and Boris Bokowski for a detailed review of the material. All remaining errors are my fault and I hope to have a few more reviewers of the book before the final release.
Industrial TSI and vogella have entered into a partnership to provide Eclipse 4 RCP courses in The Netherlands and the Flemmish part of Belgium.
We believe that Industrial TSI is the suitable partner in this region to provide Eclipse 4 RCP trainings and spread the knowledge. Industrial TSI is an Eclipse Foundation member and provides several Eclipse related courses.
The first Eclipse 4 RCP course is scheduled from October 1 to October 5 2012 and will take place in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands. This will be the first Eclipse 4 RCP Training from vogella which is held in english. Visit our Training Site for more details on this course.

Last week I moved my website to vogella.com. I had forwarding in place on vogella.de to vogella.com and hoped that the transition would be seamless.
Unfortunately I also simultaneously moved vogella.de from one provider to another. This was the first time I moved a domain and in the process I forgot to setup the A record in the DNS settings.
Sorry for any inconvenience this caused, I’m aware that lots of people use my website for their daily work. Everything should be fine by now, also Google starts showing vogella.com search results instead of vogella.de
Several users in the past contacted me and complained that it is confusing that I offer English content on a German top-level domain. While I think that is a bit silly, I also grew found over time with the though of using vogella.com.
So here it is, I migrated to vogella.com, please update your bookmarks. I setup re-directs so for most things you should be fine. But if you syndicated my blog you may want to update your links.
In case you find issues, please let me know.
Every company has a motto which should describe its primary purpose. Google has the “Don’t be evil” motto, Nike has “Just do it”, IBM has to my knowledge “Think” as motto and Apples has “Think Different”.
I personally like to acquire and distribute knowledge. Knowledge and certain skills can feel very impressive, I still remember that programming felt a bit like magic to me then I started with it approx. 25 years ago.
The primary purpose of vogella.de is to distribute knowledge and to enable others to do cool things with technology.
After some thinking I therefore decided that the motto of vogella.de should be: “Because knowledge feels like magic“.
Let me know what you think.
I updated the design of vogella to make the navigation simpler. I basically simplified the top menu and added a few more sub-categories, e.g.
This is the old homepage:
This is the new homepage:
And here is my new tutorial category selector.
I’m planning to do more work for example the individual categories pages needs an update, e.g. Android Tutorials.
A big thanks goes to the great designer Günther Beyer from http://www.opoloo.de/ who gave me valuable feedback to my webpage design. Unfortunately Günther is currently busy therefore I did this re-design myself. Obviously Günther would have done it much nicer.
I hope you like the new design. Let me know your thoughts.
Today I released my new Eclipse IDE 3.7 book for the Kindle device.
This book demonstrates how you can develop Java applications, how you can debug them and how to write JUnit tests for your applications. It also explains how you can work with local Mylyn tasks to organize your work efficiently.
It also includes important Eclipse configuration tips which make programming with Eclipse more effective.
After finishing this book you should feel comfortable with using the Eclipse IDE for standard Java development tasks and you should be equipped to explore Eclipse further.
You find the book in all Amazon stores:
This book summerizes several tutorials I publish on my website. It includes the Eclipse IDE introduction tutorial, the JUnit tutorial, Debugging with Eclipse, my Mylyn Tutorial and my favorite Eclipse shortcuts. The full content of the book is still available online on my website.
I would especially thank Elias Volanakis for his thorough spell checking and feedback on the content.
I also am very grateful to Wayne Beaton for writing the foreword and providing feedback on the content.
In addition I would like to thank the Eclipse Foundation and Ian Skerrett for the permission to use the Eclipse logo and Matthew Nuzum for the permission to use his svg version of the Eclipse logo.
I got many suggestions or corrections from countless readers of my website and I would like to express my deepest gratitude for their contributions.
I have plans to add an EGit chapter over the next months. If you buy this book now you will get the update with EGit for free. I have confirmed twice with the Amazon customer support that if I publish an update to this book that buyers of the book will get notified and that they can download the updated book with EGit for free.
I’m again surprised how much work it is to convert my website content into a book format. I hope you like this book and if you new to Eclipse I hope you enjoy your learning experience.
