Sling IDE tooling at adaptTo() 2013

Posted by Robert Munteanu

As developers we are used to having better and faster development tools. If you're a developing with Sling, the classic 'my code is compiling' excuse won't give you time for a little swordfight, since the the build time is measured in seconds, rather than minutes. However, you might spend a little time deploying a JAR file containing your bundle or initial content from the command line.  Our goal is to remove the time you spend fiddling with command line tooling and let you work in an incremental fashion in your IDE.

In my Sling IDE tooling talk I will showcase the work done in the Sling community to build Eclipse tooling for Sling applications. Currently we support deploying both OSGi bundles and content - via Apache Jackrabbit FileVault, as well as connecting to Sling Launchpad instances in debug mode. I will also discuss the technical foundations of the tooling and future development directions.

The IDE tooling is in its early development stage, but it's stable and the current feature set is enough for productive use. We leverage established Open Source tools such as Apache Maven and Apache Jackrabbit FileVault to deploy content and code to a running Sling instance.

I'm looking forward to meeting you at adaptTo() 2013, Sept. 23-25 in Berlin, and discussing the current state and the future directions of the Sling IDE tooling. You can learn more about the event, read up on all of the sessions, and register to attend here.

    Discover information related the RX drug Vermox, medication uses, dosing, side effects, drug indications, precautions, reviews and consumer indication. As vermifugal, Mebendazole induces degenerative changes in the tegument and intestinal cells of the helminth by copulating to the colchicine-sensitive spot of tubulin, and so inhibiting its polymerization or connection into microtubules. The deprivation of the cytoplasmic microtubules induces to impaired absorption of glucose by the larval and matured stages of the helminths, and exhausts their glycogen reserves. Vermox also has been shown to inhibit the enzyme fumarate reductase, which is parasite-specific. This action may be considered secondary to the action on the microtubules due to the lowered intake of glucose. Store Vermox at room temperature, 20 and 25 degrees C. Do not handle near warm up, wet and light. Safekeep in a tight, light-resistant container. Keep Mebendazole out of the reach of kids and pets.
