AbstractBy now Eclipse (www.eclipse.org) is well known as an open source project dedicated to provide a robust platform for developing highly integrated tools. Eclipse has expanded its scope to become a general platform upon which anybody can add software components to build end user applications. This is enabled by a scalable plug-in architecture which supports controlled extensibility. To support dynamic plug-ins and to provide more configurability Eclipse 3.0 has migrated to an OSGi-based run time. This talk provides an overview of the Eclipse plug-in architecture and its most recent evolution.
BioDr. Erich Gamma is an IBM Distinguished Engineer. He leads the Eclipse Java development tools project and is a member of the Eclipse project management committee. He is also a member of the Gang of Four, which is known for their book:
