Wascana 1.0 in Alpha Testing

By Doug Schaefer Well, that didn't take very long. I've spent a few hours building my special p2 artifact repository that manages installed files, including extracting them from an archive and deleting at uninstall time, along with it's associated p2 touchpoint that hooks it all up. It's not a lot of code and you can see it in CDT's CVS…

Linux Kernel Debugging with CDT

By Doug Schaefer Just ran into this awesome tutorial on how to use the CDT for debugging the Linux kernel using qemu's gdb remote debug service that makes it work much like a standard hardware/JTAG debugger.This was something I played with a while ago when I looked at adding hardware debugging support to the CDT as an optional service. And…

The Future of Wascana

By Doug Schaefer For those that don't know, I've been working on the side on a complete open source IDE distribution for Windows called Wascana Desktop Developer. It includes the CDT and the MinGW tool chain and a handful of libraries that enable cross platform development. I did the original "beta" release over a year ago and have over 12,000…

Javascript and C++, eh?

By Doug SchaeferI can't get my mind off of Dave Thomas's keynote at Eclipse Summit Europe. His words made so many things crystallize in my mind. I've stated many times before in this blog and in my day job, I hate Java. It's an incredible irony that I do my day to day coding in Java to support developers who…

An Interesting Ottawa Demo Camp

By Doug Schaefer The Ottawa Eclipse Demo camp was tonight and I thought I'd write about it before I went to bed. The demos were quite interesting, a different mix than before which keeps it fresh. And the hospitality of the Foundation staff was awesome again.I was especially intrigued by Nick Edgar's embedded web UI demo that he's working on…

Long Live the Benevolent Dictator

By Doug Schaefer The last few weeks I've been nose to the grindstone finishing up our first Wind River product release with a new p2-based installer. It's been a while since I've been involved in commercial development and, though it's been grueling and has taken me away from my CDT project lead duties, I can see the light at the…

Can Eclipse Survive Without IBM?

By Doug Schaefer I bet you this title got your attention...Let me tell you a story. It's one a lot of us Eclipse "insiders" know from our trip to Ludwigsburg, Germany. If you look at the program for Eclipse Summit Europe, you'll notice a distinct lack of Eclipse Platform committers, i.e. IBMers, presenting. And one of them was lucky enough…

Code Analysis and Refactoring with the CDT

By Doug SchaeferFor those that missed my talk at Eclipse Summit Europe, here are my slides. Unfortunately, that's pretty much all the documentation we have on this capability, as I mention in the next steps slide. The community needs to step up and help with this if we want this capability to grow. Continue Reading ››

CDT at Eclipse Summit Europe

By Doug Schaefer Well, the closing session is about to start and the vendors are packing up their displays. Another successful Eclipse Summit Europe is about to go off into the sunset. For me, it was proof again why I love coming to this show. The CDT community in Europe is strong and a lot of them are doing and…

Thoughts on Dave Thomas’ Keynote

By Doug Schaefer Ed Merks already gave a summary of Dave Thomas' keynote yesterday morning here at Eclipse Summit Europe. It was the first time I saw Dave speak and I was warned he tended to say things that offended the audience. And to Dave's point, that is kind of what a keynote speaker should do. Spark thought. Break through…
