BPMN Modeler Demo

with 3 comments

Last week, Antoine Toulmé hosted a live action demo of the BPMN Modeler Project. It’s been recorded, and you can catch up with at Eclipse Live. Eclipse Live has turned out to be a pretty cool resource, and I’m promising myself I’ll spend more time hanging out there, and might even do some video.

If you think that the demo is going to be all about BPMN and possibly a little too dull for your bytecode-wielding brain, fast forward a bit to where Antoine talks about extending and changing the modeler for your own needs. You’ll be deep in the code at that point and finding out about the awesome GMF chops that went into making the modeler what it is.

Check out the collection of screenshots here to see some of the possibilities.

Developing Silverlight clients for CXF using JAX-WS Tools

with 2 comments

I just found out that the eclipse4SL, a development environment for creating RIAs with Microsoft Silverlight, is using JAX-WS Tools for Apache CXF. In the linked how-to, the guys show how to develop a Silverlight client that accesses a Java Web service. Nice!

CXF Tools in WTP 3.1M5

leave a comment »

The JAXWS project in the WebTools incubator has made its way into the light of day on the latest and greatest 3.1M5 release update site. Point your Eclipse update site manager to http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/milestones to get the plug-ins. One thing to note is that while this release uses the most recent I-build of the WTP frameworks, the code is intended to work with the Eclipse 3.4.1 release too.

When you access the update site, you should see the CXF Web Services (Incubator) feature available in the site listing.

Thanks to David Williams for setting up the build and Shane Clarke for the awesome code construction!
