EclipseCon Fr 2018 - The future of development tooling: The example of Eclipse Che, Theia and Sirius.

The journey of building developer tooling has never been as exciting as it is right now. Eclipse Che is getting more and more mature, bringing collaboration and teams capabilities for developer workspaces. Theia, integrated in Eclipse Che, is providing the foundations for a modern and extensible web IDE. With the rise of cloud development platforms, we see the industry defining new server protocols, such as "Language Server Protocol" and "Debug Server Protocol" which allow to bring tooling on a wide range of platforms, such as Eclipse, Eclipse Che and VS Code.

During this session, we will discuss about the future of development tooling, we will briefly review the progresses made over the last years and where the community is moving towards. We will discuss how "Server Protocols" are allowing to bring our tools on different platforms and environments which can run on the cloud or locally. To illustrate the discussion, we will take few examples: The JDT Language Server, the Debug Adapter Protocol implementation in Theia and the Graphical Server Protocol initiated during the journey of bringing Sirius to the cloud.
