Release includes ready-to-run Maven2 support along with Spring IDE, Hibernate & JSF/Facelets Updates

Genuitec, LLC, the leading provider of the popular MyEclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation, announced today the immediate availability of MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 6.5; Java's most compelling IDE for end-to-end development.

Integral to this release is Maven4MyEclipse, a "1-Click," ready-to-run implementation of the Maven2 project management and build services for MyEclipse. Maven4MyEclipse streamlines enterprise Maven adoption by eliminating the hassle developers have come to associate with traditional Maven installations and project setup and configuration.

"We anticipate that over 1 million Java developers will be exposed to the advantages Maven4MyEclipse provides by the end of 2008," said Pete Carapetyan, product manager for MyEclipse. "By delivering such a popular and strategic productivity tool, MyEclipse is again positioning itself as the most versatile Java IDE on the market, as well as demonstrating the ongoing commitment to open source integration and enhancement."

Maven4MyEclipse will also support the execution of enterprise Maven2 build and project management tasks such as project report generation from within MyEclipse and independently using Maven command line tools. By adding Maven4MyEclipse's advanced functionality to the already-rich feature set of MyEclipse, users will be exposed to the fastest and most powerful end-to-end tool stack in the Java industry.

"MyEclipse 6.5 represents a sea of change in the way enterprises look at development tools," said Genuitec CEO Maher Masri. "By combining the new extensible build and management features of Maven4MyEclipse with MyEclipse's application server and database server hot-sync deployment controls, corporations are able to develop projects end-to-end utilizing the latest open standards and Web 2.0 technologies without the hindrance of setup and configuration or the hassle of long server stop-start cycles."
