Please vote for my EclipseCon France submission!
I just submitted a talk to EclipseCon France – it would be great if you could up-vote it (registration required), or forward it to other Eclipse-loving people. Thanks! In case you are wondering: The talk is not technical, but focuses on career decisions of a developer. Not sure whether the program committee likes this, but […]
Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) on Linux 64 bit
This question has been discussed over and over again: How to run the Eclipse Process Framework on Linux 64 bit? The good news: I found a solution. The bad news: It’s not free, it involves CrossOver Linux for €48, which I am more than happy to pay. You can download the 2-week-trial to see whether […]

Eventually, I came up with a pattern that seems to work reasonably well. I document it here for my and everybody else’s benefit. Here are the key ideas: Eclipse Facade:I am not a […]
formalmind Studio released, a free #requirements tool based on Eclipse #ProR
ProR is an Open Source requirements tool that has been co-developed by my company, Formal Mind. We just published our own distribution, called formalmind Studio, which also contains our productivity enhancements ProR Essentials. Of course it’s free, and you can download it here.
When to use WizardPageSupport: probably never (#Eclipse #JFace)
Admitted, what Lars Vogel shows in his tutorial looks tempting: Provide neat error messages in Eclipse Wizards using data binding. But as so often (unfortunately), the code is half-baked, and therefore barely usable. Data Binding works fine, but Validation, as described, sucks. In this particular case, WizardPageSupport works well if you have Widgets that can […]
Java & Files, IFiles, Resources, … (or: how standards proliferate #xkcd)
There are just too many implementations of File, Resource and whatnot abound in the Java/Eclipse/EMF ecosystem. Reminds me of this xkcd. And yes, I am just venting my pain:
A single develper can make a difference in open source – but will she?
Interesting Analysis of real data on how many contributions come from people outside the three top contributors.I was actually surprised how many contributions by "others" are done, but then again, Arieh mainly looked at big, prominent projects. I guess know it’s different for smaller projects, like RMF.

The RMF team is proud to announce the i12.03 Integration build, which brings significant improvements both in the core and the ProR user interface. Please read more about this on the Formal Mind Blog.
