Second milestone release includes support for Spring 3.0, eight new and updated server connectors and Genuitec’s innovative Pulse 3.0 software delivery center for collaboration
Flower Mound, TX – February 25, 2009 — Genuitec, LLC, a founding and strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation, today announced the second milestone (M2) release of MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 8.5. The newest release is built with Genuitec’s software management and distribution engine Pulse 3.0, and includes support for the much-requested Spring 3.0 framework.
MyEclipse 8.5 M2 updates its persistence support with the inclusion of Hibernate 3.3, allowing users to reverse engineer, deploy and run applications using the most recent production release of this framework. MyEclipse continues to expand its server coverage with new connectors for Glassfish 3, JBoss 6, Resin 4, Jetty 7, JOnAS 5, Spring tc Server and Sun Java System Web Server 7.
MyEclipse Blue Edition users get additional support for WebSphere Portal Server 6.1, the most recent and most-requested version of this server. This is of special consequence, as many WebSphere developers also wrestle with Portal on a daily basis. Blue users deploying to WebSphere will also benefit from the new WebSphere Application Resource Editor, which allows users to configure JNDI datasources, classloader options and virtual hosts for your enterprise application.
“As we march toward the general availability of MyEclipse 8.5 in early March, the milestone two release reinforces the position of MyEclipse as the most collaboration-friendly and comprehensive IDE on the market,” said Brian Fernandes, MyEclipse product manager for Genuitec. “The inclusion of Pulse 3.0 in MyEclipse allows teams to collaborate efficiently, spending less time setting up their development environments and more time actually developing software.”
Developers will enjoy using the new Pulse dashboard to add and remove features they do not need, thereby making MyEclipse a lighter and faster IDE than competitive offerings. And, with the inclusion of Spring 3.0 and Hibernate 3.3, users will have the most recent open source technologies available in their tool kits.
“I’m particularly excited about the updates to two very hot frameworks, Hibernate and Spring,” said Todd Williams, vice president of technology for Genuitec. “And with the recent licensing of Genuitec products as a provider of ‘patent infringement-free’ ORM software, customers can have peace of mind regarding Genuitec products.”
The production release of MyEclipse 8.5 is currently slated for March and will be the most simple, yet comprehensive IDE on the software market.
Subscriptions to MyEclipse are available annually for about $30, $50 or $150 for the Standard, Professional and Blue Editions respectively.
MyEclipse 8.5 M2 is available for all editions at www.myeclipseide.com and is free for a trial period. Free trial users and those with current subscriptions receive all upgrades and full support at no additional charge.
