"The support for Java EE 5 – specifically EJB 3, standardized and open Java persistence and enhanced JSF capabilities – solves critical usability concerns our customers have voiced," said Wayne Parrott, Vice President of Product Development for Genuitec. "With new wizards, validation and code-assist features, users will quickly see the productivity increase these new features provide."

In addition, the 5.5 release will include continued support for the popular MyEclipse SNAPs (Simple Non-integrated APplications), which allow for workspace-free file manipulation. Continuing to bridge gaps between disparate IDEs, “Use-Anywhere” connectors are provided so users of NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio platforms can utilize MyEclipse SNAPs (including a Visual Web Designer/HTML Editor [now supporting .php and .asp files], XML Editor, Database tools, smart Text Editing tools and Java Image Editor [with screen capture ability]) directly within their own environments. The SNAPs are free as part of the MyEclipse distribution, but are currently only available for the Windows platform.
