First of all I’d like to state that this blog hasn’t been abandoned – I’ve just been overwhelmed recently with assignments, school projects and finals. It’s also introduced me to developing rich client applications/plug-ins on the Eclipse framework (see these tutorials from Eclipsecon 2005, old, but still very relevant) and sparked some interest in AspectJ and aspect-oriented programming.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Eclipse, it’s well known as a Java-based development environment for software development after starting as a project within IBM. WIth Eclipse’s RCP and plug-in development tools, you can develop and deploy your own application on top of the Eclipse application framework.
As for current projects; the ResNet Quota Monitor has since been revived with a revamp to the UI and feature improvements. Also, I’m putting together a prototype for a Helpdesk agent assistant environment called the “IT Help Desker”. More on that and many other techy tidbits in the weeks to come!
