The production release of MyEclipse 7.1 Blue Edition is available today. This release is tailored for WebSphere 7.0, providing the ability for users to migrate between MyEclipse and RAD project structures - so no need for retooling or losing legacy code from your WebSphere projects. You'll also get support for starting, stopping and managing the WebSphere 7.0 server.
“We get a lot of requests for new features or enhancements to current tools in Blue” said Riyad Kalla, product manager for Genuitec. “We feel that the new project migration as well as upgraded JAX-RS support is a major upgrade that users can be very excited about.”
There's more than just WebSphere additions in this release. There's also enhanced JAX-RS tooling and persistence enhancements available. While MyEclipse 7.0 provided new JAX-RS web service generation tools, this release builds on top of this, delivering advanced editing support for annotated classes and methods.
On the persistence side of things, there's Hibernate One-to-One Support, and EclipseLink support in JPA-enabled projects.
“We're always rounding out the edges of our most popular features,” said Riyad Kalla, product manager for Genuitec. “We want our users to have the most recent technologies available, but the important part is making those features work smoothly with the MyEclipse features they already enjoy and making them easily accessible.”
Just last week, Genuitec released WebKit for SWT - Mobile, allowing Java developers to build and test code across all mobile browsers including the iPhone. Features of WebKit, such as HTML5, CSS3, and Flash are now accessible from Java thanks to this browser API.
