Eclipse is extensible platform for creation of rich-client Java applications. Eclipse platform has grown from Java IDE project famous by its plug-in API that finally led to huge extensibility capabilities of new platform.
Inteks' experts were considering Eclipse as one of prospective trends in IT industry and have being mastering Eclipse development starting from the very first public versions of Eclipse.
Eclipse is currently not only application development platform but a set of components those either can be used in context of Eclipse platform or act independently. Usage of these components eases application development and thus decreases ROI and time-to-market.
Inteks' experts have experience with the following technologies related to Eclipse:
SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) - fast UI library providing native look-and-feel for Java applications.
GEF (Graphical Editing Framework) - framework for creation of graphical editors for embedding into Eclipse platform.
EMF (Eclipse Metadata Framework) - metadata manipulation library.
Commercial experience of our Eclipse developers starts in year 2003, when Eclipse got into its maturity with release of 2.1 version. At the same moment Eclipse community was developing version 3.0 that can be considered the first release of Eclipse as a platform. Solid platform knowledge allowed us to successfully develop UML Editor project - significant part of its code was based on Eclipse platform.
