1. What's New in MyEclipse 10.7.1 - A Quick Flyover

MyEclipse 10.7.1 is the next generation of the MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench IDE for enterprise Java and web developers.

Built on the Eclipse 3.7.2 (Indigo) and Genuitec Pulse Eclipse Management and Runtime Services platforms, MyEclipse 10.7.1 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 10.7.1 features and screenshots see the New and Noteworthy.

New Editors in 10.7.1

  • MyEclipse now has an EJB deployment descriptor editor for the ejb-jar.xml file. This editor was previously only available to MyEclipse Blue Edition users.
  • Our web deployment descriptor editor for web.xml files has been rewritten from scratch to be easier to use, more complete and fully compatible with the Java EE 6 specification.

Hibernate 4.1

Hibernate 4.1 is now supported for both standalone Hibernate projects and as a JPA 2 provider in JPA applications.

New Server Support

You can now manage the following servers from within MyEclipse. Debug and deploy applications to the following servers with ease:

  • WebLogic 11 & 12
  • SpringSource tcServer
      While we haven't added a new connector, support for this server has been significantly enhanced and tested with the latest tcServer releases.

Spring 3.1 and Spring Web Flow 2.3

Create projects with Spring 3.1 / Spring Web Flow 2.3 libraries. Content assist and validation for the new schemata, annotations and classes are supported.

Add and Delete Database Rows

In the Edit table view, you now have the ability to add and delete table rows in addition to being able to edit fields in existing rows.

ICEfaces 3

ICEfaces 3 capabilities can be added to JSF 2 projects to develop next gen AJAX applications. Our Visual Designers support ICEfaces 3, ICEfaces 2 and ICEfaces 1 components and tags while the source editors provide content assist and validation. With Java EE 6 projects, ICEMobile components are also supported to ease the development of enterprise Java applications for mobile devices.

Java EE 6

With MyEclipse 10, 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

Maven Updates

Our Maven support has been significantly enhanced with support for the following:

  • Flexible Maven project structures
  • Maven based EAR projects
  • Multi-module Maven projects
  • Maven 3.0
Traditional Maven projects can now be imported into MyEclipse with ease; little to no post-import configuration is required.

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, 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.
