Today I started preparing my talk for this years EclipseCon Europe. I'll be speaking about parts of the architecture of my project "mango" aka eiswind book publishing software. I'll be showing how I leverage the XMPP protocol together with synchronous services to make my Eclipse e4 based client application responsive and alive. I'll be showing only a handful of slides together with a bunch of code examples on how I manage long running server tasks, how I do some "not so optimistic locking" with the editor lifecycle and some other stuff. The talk will be on friday afternoon and I'm looking forward to meet you there.
