M2Eclipse: The collaboration of the Maven & Eclipse Platforms

in ECE, ECE2011, Maven, Video, Eclipse

M2Eclipse provides a robust and mature solution for integrating Maven with the Eclipse IDE. M2Eclipse continues on the path to be the de-facto standard Eclipse integration for Maven users and Maven integrators alike. Features unique to M2Eclipse, such as the POM editor and support for the Nexus repository indexes, dramatically reduce the Maven learning curve and give full access to numerous Maven and p2 repositories around the world.

An open Project Configuration Framework unifies the IDE with automated, headless environments by synchronizing Eclipse settings for technologies like JDT, AJDT and WTP with their Maven counterparts. A viable solution for the ever present tension between build automation and development.

This presentation will review and demonstrate the features that currently exist in M2Eclipse. We will also discuss extensions build on top of the open API, such as expanded vision of project materialization encompassing much more than just source and binary dependencies and including issues and documentation to provide a unique developer "on-boarding" solution that will decrease downtime and increasing developer mobility. Finally we'll talk about project roadmap and the future plans.

Open Source Web Test Engine for Geospatial Standards

in FOSS4G, FOSS4G2011, Maven, Video, Java, OSGeo

How do developers and users of geospatial services know that a service is compliant with a standard? The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) provides a Web-based test facility called the TEAM Engine that allows developers to test Web services and clients for correct implementation of OGC standards. The TEAM Engine is a JAVA open source facility available at Sourceforge. The TEAM Engine can be run via command line, deployed in a web servlet container or integrated in a developer’s environment via MAVEN. The TEAM Engine uses the Compliance Test Language (CTL) to test HTTP requests, SOAP services and XML instances against schemas and Schematron based assertions of any type of web service, not only OGC services. For example, the OGC Web Feature Service (WFS) 1.0 test has 468 test assertions, including testing for the following: conformance of HTTP responses with different combinations of HTTP requests; conformance of GML-encoded data; proper values for elements and attributes in the XML; and correct error responses. This talk will provide an overview of the TEAM Engine, show examples of tests made available by OGC, including the test suite for clients that implement the OGC Web Map Service (WMS) Standard, and provide information about how to participate in the open source code development of the TEAM Engine.
