This release of MyEclipse continues to expand our web development capabilities with outstanding support for TypeScript. Also included is support for WebSphere 9, a DevSearch feature that allows you to quickly get the answers you are looking for, as well as a number of miscellaneous improvements to existing features.
Included in this release:
- WebSphere 9
- Miscellaneous Key Fixes
For those of you already using TypeScript, you’ll be happy to know that our support is centered around the tsconfig.json file—our TypeScript tooling will load and store values to this file, so that it will respect settings you may already have, without needing to configure them again in the IDE. Conversely, changes you make in MyEclipse will be accessible on the command line and in other environments as well.
For more details on our TypeScript support, please read this document.
Our new WebSphere 9 connector brings you the same robust WebSphere support you’ve grown to expect from the MyEclipse WebSphere connector family. As always, you can start and stop the server from within the IDE. Additionally, MyEclipse will detect external launches and update the server status accordingly, allowing you to perform operations on a server that is already running. The fast in-workspace deployment mode is available as well.
Beyond basic functionality, we also support JAX-WS/RPC web service generation, remote connections, Application Client and Java Connector projects for this server too.
Tired of jumping to an external browser each time you run into a problem? Use the new DevSearch view for a less disruptive search experience.
Key in your query into the view, or use the context menu action to run queries directly from other views and editors. DevSearch will search the Eclipse help system, StackOverflow and GitHub in the background, and bring up results in the view when available.
Miscellaneous Key Fixes

- The MyEclipse Explorer view will now show a collapsible node for Java library references.
