Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Dr. Alex Blewitt
Dr Alex Blewitt has been developing Java applications since Version 1.0 was released in 1996, and has been using the Eclipse platform since its first release as part of the IBM WebSphere Studio product suite. He even migrated some plugins from Visual Age for Java to WebSphere Studio/Eclipse as part of his PhD on Automated Verification of Design Patterns. He got involved in the open source community as a tester when Eclipse 2.1 was being released for Mac OS X, and then subsequently as an editor for EclipseZone, including being a finalist for Eclipse Ambassador in 2007.
More recently, Alex has been writing for InfoQ, covering generic Java and specifically, Eclipse and OSGi subjects. He keynoted the 2011 OSGi Community Event on the past, present, and future of OSGi. The coverage of both new releases of the Eclipse platform and its projects, as well as video interviews with some of the Eclipse project leads can be found via the InfoQ home page, for which he was nominated and won the Eclipse Top Contributor 2012 award.
Alex currently works for an investment bank in London. He also has a number of apps on the Apple AppStore through Bandlem Limited. When he's not working on technology, and if the weather is nice, he likes to go flying from the nearby Cranfield airport.
Alex writes regularly at his blog, http://alblue.bandlem.com, as well as tweets regularly from Twitter and App.Net as @alblue.
Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Zum Buch: Man kann sich die enthaltene Info sicherlich auch aus dem Internet holen, zu Eclipse-Entwicklung gibt es ja unzählige Tutorials und Beispiele. Aber genauso sicher wird diese Info nicht so gut strukturiert sein wie die im Buch.
Ich selbst habe die ersten 200 Seiten mehr oder weniger am Stück gelesen, dann den Hand-on-Ansatz verfolgt und das gelernte umgesetzt. Natürlich kommt man dabei mehr oder weniger schnell an den Punkt das man doch weitere Info benötigt, aber für ein Beginner-Guide ist die Detailtiefe m.E. durchaus gut. Es geht ja in der Hauptsache darum dem Leser zu vermitteln was wichtig ist, und das gelingt dem Autor sehr gut.
The introduction in Eclipse using a simple plug-in project is very successful. In detail, the author describes the ways to debug the plugin from within the IDE .
Especially the two following chapters are very interesting, SWT components are combined with the JFace framework by an example of a self-implemented analog clock. Special features of the new Eclipse Platform 4.* are drawn again and again between the chapters. Advanced knowledge in the development of Java GUI applications are not necessary.
Even advanced users are not forgotten in this book. Event handling , Sync . / Asynchronous job scheduling , monitoring, Preferences / Presets , handling with Resources and much more offer a very good knowledge base for Eclipse Platform > = 3.5.
A special chapter is devoted to the eclipse4 OSGi Platform and their characteristics in terms of event handling , use, and create their own services and Contexts .
A guide for creating Eclipse features, update sites , Applications and Product an introduction to the automatiserte Testing of Plugins and automated Builds with Tycho completes the picture of a comprehensive book.
Beginners will find in this book a very good basis and practical tips . Advanced Java GUI developers find a very good introduction to SWT and the Eclipse Platform with necessary build-tools itself.

Unfortunately, the method of the book is to take a single plug-in project and show how it is developed. All of the examples are the step-by-step development of that one project. This, alone, is not a problem. However, the example is pretty far off the main-stream, and the author doesn't seem to think beyond this one example.
The single most valuable resource in any book which will be used a reference is a thorough index. The index (or the book) is terribly incomplete, which makes it more-or-less useless as a reference. There is no excuse for this as an incomplete index just indicates laziness on the part of the author. When questions arise during the course of developing the plug-in I'm working on, I have yet to find an answer in this book--because of the poor index
This book might be valuable if one were to devote the time necessary to work through it from beginning to end, but I would not purchase this book (especially given the price) unless you intend to do so.
The book also fails to direct readers to other resources (e.g. wiki.eclipse.org, which a great resource).
This book made that "aha!" moment for me to happen in reasonable time and I'm returning to this book time to time as needed.
I will not tell this is the next best thing since people invented a wheel: book is not ideal in the way how it is formatted and how the table of contents is organized, but this book is definitely a great help, especially considering lack of good information on E4 platform overall past Lars Vogel's online guides (which are way too basic).
I would buy it again.
This book can be also useful for people starting to work with the eclipse platform. It really starts from the beginning (plug-in creation, swt and jface). It also covers more advanced topic (testing and building).
If you are looking for an Eclipse 4 book, read carefully the subtitle of the book: “How to develop, build, test, package, and release Eclipse plug-ins with features for Eclipse 3.x and Eclipse 4.x”. This is not only an Eclipse 4 book. The e4 concepts are well covered in the Chapter 7. Several examples cover the tooling installation, the e4 model, the injection of services, the application context…
I was in particular interested by Chapter 9: “Automated Tested of Plug-ins” that provides some hints about testing. It describes how you can use SWTBot to test your UI code.
I recommend this book!
Why didn’t I give 5 stars: for me it would make more sense to describe eclipse 3 and eclipse 4 the other way around. Describe Eclipse 4 first and add some side notes for people who want to use Eclipse 3 (or who want to mix both approaches).
