Responsive UIs with Eclipse and SWT

eclipse-logo

Recently I had the problem that my ‘well-conceived’ view design did not scale down reasonably. I realized that the flexibility to arrange viewparts in stacks of arbitrary sizes in an Eclipse workbench window does not exactly ease the development of appealing UIs. At least if you strive for more than a set of actions placed around a list, table or ...

Mockito Templates for Eclipse

mockito-logo

Sometimes I miss the forest for the trees – and that for a disturbingly long time. I just became aware of this once again recently, typing one of the more verbose mockito expressions for the umpteenth time. The statement in question was a doAnswer(Answer) construct which always feels a bit cumbersome to code with the static import and generics stuff ...

Code faster with Intellij IDEA live templates

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

Intellij IDEA – in my opinion the most productive IDE for Java – comes with bunch of features helping getting rid of writing repetitive code – which is a everyday business no matter what language you use.

PMI Facelift

The Project Management Infrastructure (PMI) is still, frankly, a little too ugly for my liking. A proper facelift with the help of a graphics designer and somebody who knows a thing or two about designing websites is still required (and planned). Having said that, we’re taking a small step forward. Over the weekend, I will release an update to the ...

Top 5 Useful Hidden Eclipse Features

eclipse-logo

Eclipse is a beast. A device whose mystery is only exceeded by its power. Some would call it a continuum transfunctioner. Others would call it a transmogrifier. Yes, it is so huge, it takes years to master. And then, your manager shows up and tells you: We’re using NetBeans now. Just kidding. No one uses NetBeans, except for Adam Bien. ...

java-interview-questions-answers

With so many of the traditional software tools going to the cloud I want to see how they compare to traditional tools. My interest is Java EE technology and started to look for a cloud service that allowed me to develop, test and deploy a Java EE application. As I soon found out many of the cloud IDEs are designed ...

Hot Deployment with IntelliJ IDEA

jetbrains-intellijidea-logo

Recently there was a voting in the PrimeFaces forum PrimeFaces IDE Poll for the best IDE used to develop PrimeFaces applications. The most people voted for NetBeans. NetBeans and Eclipse are free IDEs. My favorite IDE IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate is not free and I think this is a reason why there are less people using it on the job. I ...
