Second milestone release built on top of Eclipse 3.5 also includes native support for WTP projects and enhancements to UML2.

We're pleased to announced the second milestone (M2) release of MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 8.0. Our newest release is built to support Eclipse Galileo and delivers the first debugger for Internet Explorer versions six, seven and eight that can remotely debug deployed applications. MyEclipse 8.0 M2 also includes support for the the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project structure so that enterprises standardized on WTP can comply with corporate mandates.

With MyEclipse deployed in over 16,000 organizations worldwide we have learned that many of those organizations are still forced to program to Internet Explorer-specific standards – even as far back as IE 6. With the inclusion of a JavaScript debugger for Internet Explorer, developers for the first time can debug any application written specifically for this browser while it’s already deployed.

Furthermore, developers will not have to pull an application down to make bug fixes or enhancements using the MyEclipse Internet Explorer debugger, as it's the world’s first tool for debugging deployed IE applications in real time.

Another important enhancement to MyEclipse 8.0 M2 is the inclusion of WTP project support. Companies standardized on the WTP project structure can now develop persistence, business logic, presentation layers and more by having full access to MyEclipse technologies but maintaining corporate standards.

Genuitec' s MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 8.0 marks a first in the Java developer tools space with the inclusion of the MyEclipse Lite technology that allows developers to remove, add or upgrade just the portions of the IDE they use. It is the first large-scale Enterprise IDE to address the issue of “feature creep” concerns by allowing developers to easily remove or re-add entire feature stacks in the IDE depending on their tooling needs, leading to a trimmed-down and optimized development environment.

Our customers will also enjoy large scale enhancements to UML 2, the popular modeling technology demanded by users. MyEclipse 8.0 M2 also has updates to the custom server configuration, allowing users to customize their server deployments in a more transparent manner. For MyEclipse Blue users, improvements have made for IBM WebSphere deployment, with a new “enhanced” mode that will more robustly support WebSphere projects.

The production release of MyEclipse 8.0 is currently slated for December and is poised to become the simplest, yet most comprehensive IDE on the software market.
