MyEclipse Blue Edition Improvements

Instant Deployment:

The In-Workspace 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.

New JCA Editor: MyEclipse Blue 10.6 extends the connector support we added in 10.1 with an easy to use editor for the connector configuration file, ra.xml.

Better Project Support: When enhancing RAD projects, you no longer need to specify a path to the WebSphere installation; instead, you can use an already configured WebSphere connector. This has the added benefit of making enhanced projects less system dependent.

The new Target WebSphere Server property page allows you to switch the WebSphere runtime container associated with your project to one provided by a different version of WebSphere. This makes migrating projects between WebSphere versions easier.

New Connectors: In MyEclipse Blue 10.5, we've added support for the brand new WebSphere 8.5 release. Create, run, test and debug applications deployed to this server with ease. The new in-workspace deployment mode works as well, allowing for near instant deployment.

The WebSphere Community edition servers are also available, with support for both Community Edition 2 and 3.

JCA Support: MyEclipse Blue 10 introduces JCA project support. You can now create, deploy and test connector projects across all deployment modes to WebSphere 6.1 and above. JCA versions 1.0, 1.5 and 1.6 are supported.

Configuration Archive Support: A configuration archive (CAR) file can be used to clone an application server configuration from one instance of WebSphere to another instance. In Blue, for WebSphere 6.0 and above, configuration archives can be exported and imported from the Servers view. For best results, archives should be imported into new profiles.

EJB Deploy Tool:

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.

EJB Deployment Descriptor Editor:

Easily edit your EJB deployment descriptor with our new form based deployment descriptor editor. This editor supports EJB versions 2.0, 2.1, 3.0 and 3.1.

Advanced support for DB2:

Create, run and edit DB2 procedures, functions and triggers.

WebSphere Portal Server 7 & WebSphere 8 Connectors:

Start, stop and deploy applications to WebSphere Portal Server 7 and WebSphere 8.

Extended Application Client Project Support: MyEclipse Blue Edition 10 significantly improves the basic support for application client projects added in earlier versions of Blue:
  • Supports ACP versions 1.4, 5 and 6.
  • Application client projects can be deployed to WebSphere 6.1, 7 and 8.
  • Clients can be created for EJB 2.1, 3.0 and 3.1 projects.

Our new Application Client Editor allows advanced, but easy editing of the application-client.xml file.

Significant customization of the way in which your project is launched is made possible with our ACP launch configuration wizard.

Application client projects are now better integrated with the MyEclipse project and deployment model; for instance, the server view will also list ACP deployments.
