JViews Shines through on Eclipse
Eclipse is an important platform for many of ILOG's customers, and we have been working to ensure that the ILOG JViews products work well with it. Specifically, some of our customer use the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (or RCP) as an "application framework" because it provides a large number of commonly used services that all applications need, such as a consistent look-and-feel, window and view management, a good range of UI components, etc. RCP relies on SWT for drawing, however, and the drawing services offered by SWT still lag behind those of Java's AWT and Java2D.
ILOG JViews tries to fill this gap, bringing rich graphical displays to Eclipse RCP. We do this in two different ways: by offering an enhanced bridge that lets you mix AWT and SWT, and also by adding professional-grade diagramming services to SWT.
In this 40 minute presentation, ILOG JViews Product Manager Jerome Joubert describes these two approaches and illustrates them with a number of demos. If you are using Eclipse RCP and you need highly-graphical displays, then you may find this presentation of interest.
