Eclipse Scout at EclipseCon 2011


BSI presents the possibilities of the Enterprise Application Framework Scout at the exhibition and in three talks

BSI Business Systems Integration AG, initiator of the Eclipse Scout project, is showing its flag again this year at EclipseCon, which shall take place March 21-24, 2011 in Santa Clara, USA. Visitors to Stand 12 will have a hands-on opportunity to inspect the latest code status. The BSI team will use small applications, to demonstrate the possibilities of the Enterprise Application Framework. In a tutorial, BSI’s two Eclipse Scout experts, Andreas Hoegger and Matthias Zimmerman, will provide a detailed demonstration showing how a business application can be implemented and rolled-out within two hours with Eclipse Scout. Nathan Burgherr will also show how developments can give their Scout applications a Web interface. Stephan Leicht and Claudio Guglielmo will present specific customer projects from BSI to demonstrate what is possible with Eclipse Scout.

Scout was accepted as a project with proposal status by the Eclipse Foundation early in 2010. The Eclipse Scout code has been available as an open source resource worldwide since the end of 2010. In summer 2011, the Enterprise Application Framework will "ride along" for the first time on the annual Eclipse Release Train. “We are proud of what we have achieved so far and therefore are really looking forward to California this year. By the way: We have a little surprise under wraps, which we shall reveal during our talk on Wednesday,” commented Andreas Hoegger of BSI. “I am happy to see the progress being made in the Eclipse Scout project. Tools and frameworks, such as Eclipse Scout, can significantly boost the productivity of developers that are working on the implementation of business applications," added Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation.

Scout – called Eclipse Scout -–was developed ten years ago by BSI to simplify the implementation of business applications and to boost the productivity of developers. Scout has been continuously further developed since then and today is completely based on the Java/Eclipse platform. Eclipse Scout serves as the central platform for BSI applications, such as BSI CRM. The framework consists of an application model, a reference implementation and a comprehensive utility package. Scout also includes an SDK, which accelerates the development of complex business applications.
