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

We're proud to announce 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.

Our team updated 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.

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.

Other recent enhancements to MyEclipse include the world's first remote, real-time Internet Explorer JavaScript debugger, WTP project support built-in, a standalone Java profiler, UML 2 upgrades, Struts 2 support, and a Visual SQL Builder among many other tools.

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.

Thanks, and let us know what you think!
