MyEclipse 4.1 Ships Web 2.0 Development Tools

Offers First Eclipse-based AJAX Support, Integrated Eclipse Rich-Client Image Editor

Genuitec has announced availability of the MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 4.1. Backed by what the company calls world-class support, MyEclipse is the comprehensive J2EE- and Web-development tool suite designed for Enterprise developers and consultants "looking for top value" in a commercial-grade Integrated Development Environment (IDE), the company says.

MyEclipse 4.1 is also the first Eclipse-based platform to support AJAX development, offer an integrated image editor and include new Web 2.0 development capabilities.

This release integrates Spring, Hibernate and database technologies into a single intuitive solution. It includes automated reverse engineering of Hibernate mapping specifications from any database schema, smart Hibernate mapping file editing, Spring-Hibernate synchronization and configuration, and generation of Plain Old Java Objects (POJO) and Data
Access Objects (DAO).

"MyEclipse now serves 200,000 members in 7,000 enterprises and 136 countries, including a large portion of Fortune 1000 companies," said Maher Masri, president of Genuitec. "We are committed to continuing support for the Eclipse open-source platforms, extending the workbench with the newest technologies and maintaining our low subscription price."

"MyEclipse has significantly changed our workflow, allowing us to easily code, deploy, test and debug in a cycle that went from minutes to seconds," said Wayne Townsend-Merino of the San Diego Supercomputer Center. "The value of MyEclipse far exceeds the price, justified by countless hours saved by just the hot-deploy feature alone."

MyEclipse is based upon and significantly extends Eclipse 3.1 to include support for UML, XML, HTML, Struts, JSF, JSPT, JavaScriptT, CSS, EJB, Tapestry, Hibernate, Spring and database/SQL/ERD technologies. MyEclipse 4.1 offers the latest Web 2.0 development features including the following:

- Early access to MyEclipse Web 2.0 Tools Platform (W2TP) for
lightweight, next-generation post-J2EE technology Java Web applications
- Advanced drag-and-drop Rapid Application Development (RAD)
features with near-zero hand coding
- The first Eclipse-based full featured image editor with
extensive image creation, modification and processing tools
- The first Eclipse-based AJAX tools including integrated
JavaScript editing and debugging capabilities
- Expanded UML and round-trip development modeling tools including
improved sequence diagram support.

The MyEclipse 4.1 workbench is designed for use on Linux, Apple OS X and Windows workstations. MyEclipse delivers a standards-based extensible platform that preserves developers' ability to choose the latest facilities and technologies from multiple sources, the company says. The workbench provides tools that permit system deployment into a broad range of infrastructures, including coverage of over 25 application servers and connectors to over 30 database systems.
By choosing MyEclipse, enterprises get the latest technology while avoiding proprietary solutions, hidden costs and vendor lock-in.
