Chariot TechCast Episode 55 - Interview with Boris Bokowski on Eclipse e4

Today we speak with Boris Bokowski, a committer on the Eclipse Platform UI project, and a Senior Software Engineer at IBM.  His participation in Ecilpse dates back to Eclipse 1.0, when he coded the CVS client for the IDE.

We discuss Eclipse e4, an incubator for new technologies on the Eclipse project.  There are several new features coming as a result of e4, including:

  • A new dependency injection framework for Eclipse bundles, based on the Java platform Dependency Injection JSR
  • A new Rich UI tool, built on Eclipse, that lets developers put together rich client platforms using Eclipse and the dependency management platform
  • A new eGit Eclipse git integration tool
