Newly released power-ups of Hot Reload, JavaScript Debug and REST Inspect bring Full Stack coding to Eclipse

Webclipse : adding the Web to Eclipse

We are thrilled to make immediately available to Eclipse developers greater access to web technologies helping fulfill the needs of the Full Stack developer under Eclipse

Genuitec, a leader in the Eclipse open source community, announces the initial and immediate availability of Webclipse. Departing from Genuitec’s traditional standalone product model, Webclipse provides significant capabilities for JavaScript and JavaEE development for the Eclipse developer as an IDE add-on.

"We are thrilled to make immediately available greater access to web technologies helping fulfill the needs of the Full Stack Eclipse developer,” stated Tim Webb, Director of Innovation.

Webclipse improves the modern coding experience by delivering unique features like Hot Reload, JavaScript Debug, REST Inspect and other power-ups. Developers writing modern applications find themselves frequently moving between layers of the stack. With Webclipse, developers can stay in their familiar Eclipse development environment yet develop and debug JavaScript, consume and create web services, and generally spend more time coding.

"The ability of developers to easily create JavaScript content anywhere in their stack is becoming increasingly
important for web developers ," says Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation "Webclipse support for node.js and advanced web technology provides an interesting new addition to this growing market."

Three marquee features in Webclipse power up the Eclipse development stack:

Hot Reload, an improved version of Hot Code Replace, focuses on time spent in re-deploying and restarting after class changes. Hot Reload allows developers to see these changes instantly in their Tomcat and Weblogic application servers, providing a nice improvement in web development speed.

JavaScript Debug provides integrated and reliable Javascript debugging inside Eclipse directly to external Chrome browsers. Not only that, it also provides support for Node.js with debugging of Node applications.

REST Inspect allows developers to invoke and integrate RESTful web services. Webclipse initially supports JAX-RS and RAML definitions to facilitate web service coding. Developers can also test other's web services all from within their Eclipse stack.

Webclipse features are here to help developers do web and web service development better and the best part is that it is completely free to use for the first year.

"With the inclusion of our Early Adopter program, we are excited to bring excellent power-ups to Eclipse developers at no cost,” said Webb.
