Experiences from following "The Eclipse Way" at OOP 2008

Together with my colleague Ivo Eitner from the Aspecta/HDI-Gerling Lebensversicherung I will give a talk at the upcoming OOP conference in Munich. The conference is from January 21st to the 25th and we are going to talk about our experiences from using and adapting "The Eclipse Way" - the agile software development process that is used by the Eclipse SDK team. We have adopted quite a number of their practices over the past three years within a larger development project in the insurance domain and we will present our experiences using those practices. Here is the german abstract of this talk.

Article on Aspect-Weaving for OSGi

The latest german Eclipse-Magazin contains an article that I wrote together with Peter Friese (from Gentleware) and Heiko Seeberger (from Metafinanz) about using AOP for Eclipse RCP applications. The article describes how load-time aspect weaving can be used for real-world OSGi-based applications. Within the article we describe how security-related issues can be implemented using AOP and how those aspects can be woven into an RCP app using AJEER or the Equinox Aspects load-time weaving support for OSGi. The complete article can be found in the publications section.
