What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

A new version of the Marketplace Client (MPC) is now available the the Java IDE and RCP M7 packages.   The client is looking really nice and I have high hopes it will be a big success for the Eclipse ecosystem.

To prove how simple it is to install an Eclipse project using MPC, below are some screen shots of installing an Erlang IDE.    Imagine this to the music of Feist. :-)

One – Open the MPC from the Help menu

Two – Search for Erlang and find Erlide

Three – Select Install

Four – Erlang is now ‘Install Pending’,  I could install multiple products at the same time but I will only do one here;  Select Next

Five – Accept the license and hit Finish

Six – Restart Eclipse

Seven – Open the Erlide Perspective

Start Coding in Erlang  (OK,  I am not an Erlang developer but hopefully you get the idea)

Yes,  a few more than 3 steps but I do believe the MPC greatly simplifies the discovery and install experience.  I do hope this will become the App Store like experience for the Eclipse ecosystem.

Give MPC a try and let us know your feedback.  We want to make sure we get it right for the Helios launch.  If you have an Eclipse product, make sure you get it listed on the Eclipse Marketplace in time for Helios.
