The Eclipse platform (http://www.eclipse.org) is designed for building
integrated development environments (IDEs) for object-oriented application
development. Building on the success of the OOPSLA 2003 Eclipse Technology eXchange workshop, we will again feature presentations and group discussions concerning the use of the Eclipse open source as a code base for teaching and research. The presenters will report on their projects and discuss potential
new uses of Eclipse and improved usability of the core Eclipse technology.
A panel session of leading educators will discuss advantages and problems
with using Eclipse in education. Technical leaders of the Eclipse community
will be available throughout the workshop to participate in the technology exchange.
