Feedback of Target Platform migration from Eclipse 4.3 to 4.4.1

Article submitted by aurelien.pupier Thu, 03/12/2015 - 11:16

The Bonitasoft Eclipse RCP development team has migrated Bonita BPM Studio from Eclipse 4.3 to Eclipse 4.4.1 for its Bonita BPM 6.5.0 release. (It is available now / Download / Release note )

It was far more time-consuming than planned and than some previous migrations. Consequently, I would like to share experience in order to help people who didn't migrate yet.

Potential Out Of Memory Error during startup using Eclipse compatibility layer

Article submitted by aurelien.pupier Fri, 03/06/2015 - 15:30

After migrating from Eclipse 4.3 to 4.4.1, we got some Out Of Memory Errors during the startup of our Eclipse RCP application on our CI server. Here's how we spotted and solved the issue!

How to spot the memory issue

EMF Validation, Java 8 and nsURI

Article submitted by aurelien.pupier Fri, 02/06/2015 - 10:00

After migrating to Eclipse 4.4, and with the support of Java 8 working well, it is time to launch our full test suite on Java 8! Unfortunately, one test for an EMF Validation was failing. It took me quite some time to figure out what went wrong, but the fix is quite easy and it would have never happened if a simple best practice rule was used.

In short:

ALWAYS specify nsURI !

Puppet is a configuration management software. It ensures consistency and reproducibility while deploying applications. In this article we will present the bonita_bpm Puppet module created to manage Bonita BPM installations.

This module works on Ubuntu 14.04. It currently manages installations of Bonita BPM Community or Subscription editions in 6.4.0 and 6.4.1 releases.

Thanks for the fixing the Eclipse Internal Browser on Linux!

I'd like to offer a few words to say thank you to the folks who worked to make the Eclipse Internal browser work by default on Linux since Eclipse 4.4.

There was a known workaround which required User intervention, such as the one explained on our own community blog.
