Example Eclipse Application

While there seem to be a couple of projects that use Eclipse as a framework to deploy applications, there are very little that use actual target platforms for some reason. Most want you to download and install a custom Eclipse just to deploy a specific snapshot of their application (example: DBeaver).

I personally want to have a nice, reproducable build that uses the same code in my IDE as while packaging JARs, so I created an example application using a target platform file: example-eclipse-application

I even managed to use plain Maven dependencies (even if they’re not OSGi bundles) in that reactor!

(This showed a couple of bugs with the Random and Charts Frameworks, but I guess that’s life. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )


The One With So Much Work

I hate JavaFX now. In the past I liked it, because I liked the design and everything about it. Now with Java 11 it’s so ridiculous hard to build an application, that I’ll just stop doing it. However… I updated the JavaFX / Maven Example:

I think the only fun part here is that the branches for Java 7 and Java 8 are still present. But that’s just me.


The One With the Class and the Exception

the demo in action

After not being able to deploy that other project my survival instincts kicked in and I started working on the “easy” repository.

I created a Java 7 tag of the project (even thought maybe that should be a branch), updated to Java 11 und moved the tutorial and its images to GitHub, so I can maintain both the code and the documentation at the same time.

And of course, the ReadMe is mirrored on this page.
