Sybase Highlights Open Source for Enterprise & Mobile Development at EclipseCon 2008

Sybase (NYSE:SY) today announced that it will showcase its continued commitment to Eclipse Open Source development for enterprise and mobile applications at EclipseCon 2008, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, March 17-20. At the event, Sybase® representatives will lead seven presentations focusing on topics ranging from the Eclipse Data Tools Platform to Creating Windows Mobile Database Applications. A Strategic Developer member of the Eclipse Organization, Sybase is dedicated to broadening the value of Eclipse to the software development community.

Sybase will exhibit its enterprise and mobile data management solutions as well as development tools that leverage Eclipse. Additionally, Sybase is presenting talks around its Eclipse Open Source expertise and strategies including:

Data Applications in Eclipse: The Eclipse Data Tools Platform

Sybase’s John Graham will join Loic Julien and Sheila Sholars of IBM, to co-present one of the opening tutorial sessions of the conference on developing data applications. The Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP) project provides a number of key exemplary end-user tools for working with data sources. Whether your task is working primarily on a database or to build an application using a database, DTP can help. The session will offer an overview of DTP and investigate data tooling. The session will also discuss heterogeneous data access with DTP and how DTP is leveraged in other Eclipse projects, such as BIRT and WTP.

Date: Monday, March 17, 2008

Time: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Location: Santa Clara Convention Center -- Room 202

Implement Schema Editing Based on Delta DDL

Dafan Yang and Lin Song will present a tutorial to guide developers to build DDL and Delta DDL generators, hence to implement the database schema editors. To help the developers to quickly develop an editor for a specific database type, an exemplary implementation demo and source code will be provided.

Date: Monday, March 17, 2008

Time: 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Location: Santa Clara Convention Center -- Room 202

Birds of a Feather Session: Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP)

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
