Release includes ready-to-run stack, customizable how-to applications, popular tool expansion pack, workspace-free SNAPs.

Genuitec, LLC, the leading provider of the popular MyEclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation, today announced the upcoming GA release of MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 5.5. An expansion of Genuitec's Fusion™ Technology platform, the release introduces significant developer upgrades for MyEclipse, including an enhanced "MyEclipse Experience."

The full "MyEclipse Experience" allows developers to increase productivity, utilize tool portability, and enjoy a full out-of-box solution - all while maintaining developer control over the environment's setup. With the recently-introduced MyEclipse SNAPs (Simple Non-integrated APplications), users are able to access their favorite tools, anytime, anywhere without environment or lock-in restrictions. New for MyEclipse 5.5, Java EE 5 support simplifies and enhances EJB 3 and JSF development for enhanced user productivity. And, with 5.5's new database and application server integration, developers won't need to search for the external tools and tutorials that they need to accomplish their larger tasks.

"We know that developers need more than an IDE to get the job done right," said Wayne Parrott, vice president of product development for Genuitec. "Users were still forced to go find application servers and database solutions, and spend their time in setup and debugging tasks. Now, with our enhanced "MyEclipse Experience," we're proud to ship the ready-to-run full developer's solution in MyEclipse 5.5. This release addresses these technological needs along with customizable how-to applications to be sure users can get up and running immediately out of the box while still retaining full control over their environment."

Also notable in the upcoming 5.5 release is the MyEclipse Expansion Pack, which consists of ten of the most popular add-on tools for Java developers. These tools have been tested and endorsed by the MyEclipse R&D labs, and will provide developers with additional tools options, including code quality, life-cycle management, reporting and performance analysis tools among others.

"MyEclipse 5.5 is all about giving developers options and the ability to take advantage of those options as quickly as possible," said Maher Masri, CEO of Genuitec. "No more hunting for external tools and wondering if they'll be compatible or wasting time configuring. MyEclipse 5.5 provides quick and easy solutions, and gives developers the knowhow to get moving immediately."

In addition to the MyEclipse Experience and Expansion Pack, MyEclipse 5.5 combines several other new features with its existing comprehensive tool set that encompasses the Java application development life cycle from heavyweight J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) development to lighter-weight, Java-based alternative frameworks such as Hibernate and Spring.

MyEclipse 5.5 Enterprise Workbench incorporates the following new capabilities and enhancements:

  •     Hibernate/Spring Integration--Integrated the latest version of Hibernate tools to support advanced ORM reverse-engineering strategies including omit table columns, naming strategies, and retained Velocity templates. Improved HQL Editor. Upgraded to support Spring IDE 2.0.
  •     UML--Sequence diagram improved roles w/ DnD from UCs and CDs. Copy/Cut/Paste of classes, interfaces, attributes and methods.

The MyEclipse 5.5GA is slated for April.
