JavaScript Tech for Modern UIs

With MyEclipse’s integration of Tern.js, you’ll find that developing JavaScript for both web and mobile applications is both flexible and modern. Code assist, including Completion Guess and Completion String support, is exemplary when compared to traditional Eclipse-based JavaScript code assist. Expand your options by choosing from a large number of modules such as AngularJS, node.js, Chrome Apps, and YUI. There’s more than just JQuery these days!

Save Loads of Typing with Emmet

Do you find yourself working with a lot of HTML? Maybe CSS or XML? It can often be tiresome to type in loads of markup or simply make the edits you need easily and quickly, especially when dealing with a large amount of content. This is where Emmet comes in!

Unlike regular snippet functionality, with Emmet you can type CSS-like expressions which are dynamically parsed and then expanded immediately into well formed markup, saving you loads of typing.

Cloud Connections with REST

Major players like Tumblr, Location Services, Google, and Twitter all use REST for connecting users to the cloud. A completely redesigned MyEclipse REST explorer facilitates testing of your REST web services. In addition, experiment with predefined RESTful web services for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

To find your way around your project’s REST methods, the REST Project Explorer helps you navigate between methods and resources; double-clicking a method in the REST Project Explorer view opens the resource file to the selected method.

The Easier to Use, the Better

Spending time looking for things in your IDE means you’re wasting time. Quick access equals higher productivity. Get a direct link to project wizards as well as help and examples from a handy Dashboard. The MyEclipse Explorer displays more project resource information than the traditional Project Explorer and provides advanced searches so you can easily find project resource files. Even project deployment has improved efficiency by allowing you to add multiple projects to an app server simultaneously. 

When it comes to app servers, you are free to add additional server connectors from companies like IBM and Apache. And, you always have access to the most current plugins because MyEclipse is based on the most current Eclipse version.

Easily Navigate Source Code

When you’re working with a large amount of code, the Minimap makes it easy to navigate through your source. Most developers have a “mental map” of how their code is formatted. This new view shows you the bigger picture at a glance and allows a quick jump to the section you need.  Use the Minimap for all editor source code views, including Java, JavaScript, and HTML.

In Touch with the Mobile Landscape

The hybrid mobile app framework is ever increasing in popularity. With MyEclipse, hybrid mobile development becomes part of your Java IDE. With PhoneGap/Cordova hybrid technology, the same developers who code a mobile app’s back-end services can also build the UI. With the cross-platform characteristic of hybrid apps, you don’t need developers with separate skills for each platform.

Mobile templates, including JQuery and Ionic, give you a quick start on mobile projects. Building applications is easy via the integrated access to Adobe’s PhoneGap Build services. Install apps onto devices and debug using Genuitec’s GapDebug. Build and debug whether you’re on Windows or Mac.

More Back-End Server Control

For enterprises using WebSphere, improvements to deployment make development significantly faster. Resource changes are rapidly picked up by the server for quicker application testing. If Tomcat is your server of choice, new server configuration options provide more control over Tomcat deployments.

Architectural Improvements

Some improvements just make things you already use even better! A complete overhaul of our custom server connectors gives you more control and configurability for the app servers you already use. We also added connectors for a couple new server versions – TomEE 1.7 and Pivotal tc Server 3.0. Maven now has an additional option for using only dependency management if that’s all you need. And, Spring framework, Spring Tool Suite (STS), and BIRT all got bumped up to the newest version.
