New HTML5 mobile cross-platform capabilities support the entire mobile application lifecycle from development, back-end integration to post-deployment management directly from your desktop.

MyEclipse Blue 2013 is the Enterprise Anywhere edition for WebSphere users

Genuitec, LLC, a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation along with IBM, is excited to attend the annual IBM Impact conference this year where they will be highlighting the release of MyEclipse Blue 2013. MyEclipse Blue 2013 is the Enterprise Anywhere edition for WebSphere users with new capabilities to take developers Mobile First. Customers are now able to build and deploy mobile apps for popular devices while transforming legacy applications into mobile applications using the powerful, new feature-set in MyEclipse Blue 2013.

“I'm thrilled to introduce HTML5 development tools to our WebSphere clients as found in MyEclipse Blue 2013. HTML5 is the fundamental technology for the future of the enterprise,” said Wayne Parrott, vice president of new products at Genuitec. “And our tools are built on the Eclipse platform and integrate seamlessly with all releases of Websphere, making them the premier choice for developers around the world.”

The new mobile tools found in MyEclipse Blue 2013 allow developers to design and implement past and present apps for Android, iPhone, iPod, and iPad devices, which make up nearly 90 percent of the market according to research conducted by ComScore in late 2012.* The MyEclipse Blue 2013 mobile tool set puts the power of HTML5 while using the open-source Cordova/PhoneGap ™ frameworks to support all PhoneGap APIs in the hands of Websphere developers.

Genuitec's IBM WebSphere clients will find it even easier to migrate projects from RAD (IBM Rational tools) than ever before. The migration process is more robust, transparent and makes it easier to switch between WebSphere versions. MyEclipse Blue 2013 is a fast and lightweight alternative to RAD, supporting the deployment of all project types in a variety of modes seamlessly. MyEclipse Blue 2013 will mobilize projects and teams alike with the ingenuity of mobile tools.

WebSphere clients will benefit from mobile tools that include an App Center Builder to package apps into the cloud for testing with a Cordova runtime and possesses the ability to support more than one Cordova runtime environment. Mobile tools will also feature an HTML5 visual designer that allows developers to employ one-click technology to design once with a single code base and configure apps for Android and iOS platforms. The mobile tools found in MyEclipse Blue 2013 will use Google App Engine for cloud-based app building and distribution.

In addition, MyEclipse Blue 2013 will boast a slimmer feel with the absence of the configuration center for individual users. For MyEclipse Blue Secure 2013 customers, the configuration center has been replaced by Genuitec’s Secure Delivery Center (SDC). MyEclipse Blue Secure 2013 allows developers to add and remove different components from MyEclipse Blue in a more simplified manner, as well as have the ability to access and install software from proprietary tools libraries and/or public Eclipse marketplaces. It also allows customers to leverage cloud technologies for the sharing of profiles and configurations, and license management including the ability to activate MyEclipse Blue behind your firewall.

Other features to be experienced in MyEclipse Blue 2013 include the addition of Web Fragment Support, enhanced server and deployment capabilities, improved project wizards, expanded project libraries, and support for target runtimes. MyEclipse Blue 2013 will also include the embedded Tomcat 7 server, TomEE server connector and WindowBuilder SWT and Swing designers.

Subscriptions to MyEclipse Blue Editions are available annually for about $160, while the MyEclipse Blue Secure Edition is $250.

MyEclipse Blue 2013 is available at: MyEclipse Blue comes with a free 30-day trial. Free trial users and those with current subscriptions receive all updates at no cost; enhanced service agreements are now available and vary in cost.
