1. What's New in MyEclipse 9.1 - A Quick Flyover

MyEclipse 9.1 is the next generation of the MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench IDE for enterprise Java and web developers.

Built on the Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) and Genuitec Pulse Eclipse Management and Runtime Services platforms, MyEclipse 9.1 provides hundreds of new and improved code development, testing and deployment features.

Following are highlights of key new and improved features. For a more complete list of all MyEclipse 9.1 features and screenshots see the New and Noteworthy.

Java EE 6

With MyEclipse 9, you can now take advantage of Java EE 6 features, such as:

  • Servlet 3.0
  • JSF 2.0
  • JPA 2.0
  • EJB 3.1
  • JAX-RS 1.1

ICEfaces 2

ICEfaces 2 can be added to JSF 2 projects to develop next gen AJAX applications. Our Visual Designers support ICEfaces 2 components and tags while the source editors provide content assist and validation.

64-bit Windows support

A 64-bit version of MyEclipse is now available for users running 64-bit Windows. To install this version, choose 64-bit when prompted by the offline installer, or install a 64-bit version of Pulse and when provisioning MyEclipse 9.0, choose 64-bit.

Note: Due to technical constraints, the 64-bit version of MyEclipse on Windows will not include Visual Designers, the REST Explorer and JavaScript debugging. These features will be re-introduced in subsequent releases. Users can always choose to provision a 32-bit version of MyEclipse, even on 64-bit systems to retain access to all features.

Cocoa support

When installing on OS X Cocoa based systems, you now get the option of choosing between Carbon 32-bit, Cocoa 32-bit or Cocoa 64-bit.

Note: Due to technical constraints, the Cocoa installations of MyEclipse will not include Visual Designers, the REST Explorer and JavaScript debugging. Users can always choose to provision a Carbon version of MyEclipse, even on Cocoa systems to retain access to all features.

Struts 2 Enhancements

  • Improved connection routing
  • Better undo/redo suport
  • Struts 2 specific validation for Struts 2 configuration files
