MyEclipse 10.6 Overall Improvements

New Editors: 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.

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.

Spring 3.1: We've added support for Spring 3.1 as well as Spring Web Flow 2.3. Content assist and validation for the new schemata, annotations and classes are supported.

DB Browser: A long standing request from our users, we've added the ability to add and delete rows in the Edit table view. Simply use the "plus" button to add a new row, fill in your data by entering text into the fields and click Save to add this row to your table. You can also delete rows using the delete button.

Java 7: Being based on Eclipse 3.7.2, MyEclipse 10.5 supports development with Java 7. Please see What's New in Java 7 for a list of new Java 7 capabilities.

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.

Indigo: MyEclipse 10.1 is based on the Eclipse Indigo stream, bringing a whole year's worth of improvements and fixes to MyEclipse in several areas.
  • Java development support has improved across the board in areas like code editing, refactoring, validation and compiliation. For a more detailed overview, please see this link.
  • MyEclipse reports is now built on BIRT 3.7, enhancements include:
    • Open Office output formats added.'
    • Improved outline view.
    • New BIRT POJO runtime (automatically used for new MyEclipse Reports projects) makes deployment into JEE severs easier, alleviates classloading concerns.
    • Enhanced performance, concurrency and memory optimizations in many areas.
Windows 64 Support:

A 64-bit version of MyEclipse is now available for users running 64-bit Windows. To install this version, use our 10.0 installers which will give you the option of installing a 64-bit version on 64-bit systems.

Due to technical constraints, a 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.

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.

JavaScript Performance Enhancements:

In MyEclipse 10.0, we have introduced several JavaScript code analysis modes to allow you to tailor the JavaScript feature set to suit your specific needs. While the Active mode is feature rich, in very large workspaces it can lead to memory and performance issues; a problem further compounded if you do not actively work with JavaScript. The Passive mode is a good mix of necessary JavaScript features and performance, this is the default mode for MyEclipse 10.
To change your JavaScirpt code analysis mode, go to Window > Preferences > MyEclipse > Files and Editors > JavaScript


Our HTML editors now have content assist support for HTML 5 tags.
