MyEclipse 7 is Here!

If you’re wondering why I jumped straight to a MyEclipse 7 post without any “non-work” posts in between, then you’re staring the reason in the face… MyEclipse 7.0.  Since MyEclipse 6.6, we’ve presented at Eclipse World (more about that later) and worked on nothing but MyEclipse 7.0. Besides new features, this release includes much awaited updates and fixes across the board. MyEclipse 7.0 and MyEclipse 7.0 Blue Edition were released on the 9th, so without wasting more time, let’s dive right into the juicy details…

What’s new:

7.0 is our first production release for Ganymede (Eclipse 3.4), preceded by two milestone releases in the 7 series. It is also the first MyEclipse release delivered on top of the Pulse Eclipse Management Platform and includes a Pulse based plugin dashboard. As an end user, this enables you to:

The ability to share workspaces is only available to Pulse Freelance subscribers, all other features are absolutely free.

MyEclipse 7.0 adds JAX-RS to it’s list of supported web service frameworks. This means you can now develop, deploy and test RESTful web services in MyEclipse. We use Jersey, the JAX-RS reference implementation. I’ll try to provide more details in a later post.

An early access version of our UML2 features can be installed via the dashboard. This includes a massively detailed UML2 graphical editor. So if you feel like cranking out a Composite Structure diagram (I don’t 😉 ), you know where to look.

Our Javascript tools are a professional integration of JSDT, which gives the editor a much needed upgrade with support for OOP/closures, vastly improved content assist and various other code browsing enhancements.
