MyEclipse Blue Edition 9.1 is the next generation of the MyEclipse Blue Edition IDE for enterprise Java and web developers working with the WebSphere 5, 6.x, 7 and WebSphere 8.0 application server platforms.
Built on the Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) and Genuitec Pulse Eclipse
Management and Runtime Services platforms, MyEclipse Blue Edition 9.1
provides hundreds of new and improved code development, testing
and deployment features.
As an affordable alternative to the Rational Application Developer 7.x, MyEclipe Blue Edition 9.1 focuses on improving developer productivity by simplifying the development lifecycle in the delivery of web, J2EE/JEE, JAX-RPC, JAX-WS, RESTful web services, XML, JSP , JSF, Struts, Ajax, EJB3/JPA, Spring, Hibernate, UML, enterprise reporting and database applications. MyEclipse Blue Edition 9.1 is supported on the Windows and Linux platforms.
Following are highlights of key new and improved features. For a more complete list of all MyEclipse Blue Edition 9.0 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 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.
With MyEclipse Blue Edition 9.1, you can now add the MyEclipse for Spring feature to your installation from the configuration center's Dashboard tab to easily create a "MyElipse Bling" installation that allows you to take advantage of extensive Spring tools and scaffolding for your WebSphere applications. Please note that continued use of the Spring functionality will require an upgrade to a MyEclipse Bling license.
The EJB Deploy tool can now be used for EAR or EJB projects which are to be deployed to WebSphere 6.1 and up. This allows you to turn off the EJB deploy step during deployment resulting in a much faster deployment experience. Run the EJB Deploy manually only when required.
Instant Deployment (Experimental)
This new mode can be used to deploy projects in a few seconds by pointing WebSphere to the project that exists in your workspace as opposed to using a production-quality deployment that includes copying your application out to WebSphere. Synchronization of resources and code is handled by WebSphere directly. This mode is most appropriate for rapid application evolution while debugging.
Extended Application Client Project Support
- Support for ACP versions 1.4, 5 and 6
- Supports client creation against EJB 2.1, 3.0 and 3.1
- Supports WebSphere 6.1, 7 and 8
- Advanced application-client.xml editor
- Better integration into the MyEclipse project model and deployment engine
Extended DB2 Support
CRUD support for DB2 stored procedures, user defined functions and triggers.
EJB Deployment Descriptor Editor
The EJB Deployment Descriptor editor allows you to easily edit EJB deployment descriptor files (ejb-jar.xml) via a form based editor. EJB versions 2.1 and above are currently supported.
WebSphere Portal Server 7 and WebSphere 8
Start, stop and deploy applications to WebSphere Portal Server 7 and WebSphere 8.
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 Blue 9.0, choose 64-bit.
Struts 2 Enhancements
- Improved connection routing
- Better undo/redo suport
- Struts 2 specific validation for Struts 2 configuration files
