Instantiations Sponsors "New Approaches for Java Rich Client Development" Live Webinar on May 31

Eclipse thought-leaders Mike Taylor and Mike Milinkovich will discuss a new approach to building desktop and rich client apps

Eclipse thought-leaders Mike Taylor and Mike Milinkovich will discuss a new approach to building desktop and rich client applications in Java, offer rationale for using Eclipse RCP to create high performance cross-platform clients and describe how a combination of Eclipse RCP and emerging development tools can help organizations bring Java back to the desktop to effectively work for them.

The SYS-CON.TV Webcast will be taped at SYS-CON's Times Square Studios and will stream live on Wednesday, May 31, 2006, at 2 PM EST.

Traditionally most application developers have designed their own architecture and then construct application frameworks themselves. This approach increases development time and adds considerable costs in time, support, and effort to solve a problem that is peripheral to building the application business logic.

Eclipse RCP is causing serious decisions to be made about the desktop computing strategies of enterprise organizations. In fact there may now be fewer obstacles to replacing costly desktop operating systems with low cost alternatives by bridging the discontinuity caused by the Win32 to Vista API shift being proposed by Microsoft.

Eclipse was originally developed as a software tools integration framework. Starting with version 3.0, the Eclipse development team completely separated the base runtime platform, known as the rich-client platform (RCP), from the development tools infrastructure. The result is an extensible, cross-platform application framework that is suitable for building almost any kind of desktop or rich client application in Java.

The first wave of commercial RCP-based applications are starting to appear in a wide variety of industries. Many organizations are standardizing on Eclipse RCP as the architecture for their internal IT applications, thus enabling them to run as manageable, integrated suites rather than as disassociated units of functionality.

(May 31, 2006) - Mike Taylor, Instantiations CEO, during the live SYS-CON.TV event

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
