MyEclipse 4.1 released with Ajax support

Category: Java, JavaScript, Ruby, Toolkit

MyEclipse is a comprehensive Java web development suite built on top of the Eclipse platform. They just released version 4.1 with a whole host of features for Ajax development. The new Web 2.0 Tools Platform (W2TP) includes a Mozilla based web browser with an integrated JavaScript debugger and DOM inspector. Sure, we have these tools available as seperate plugins, but its nice to have everything wrapped into the IDE if possible.

MyEclipse offers a trial release for 30 days of use, with a one year subscription for $30 that gets you continued releases and support. I have been a subscriber after trying some to mix and match other plugins, and I’ve been very pleased with it. MyEclipse plus RadRails (now including RDT) and Subclipse make for a very compelling cross language dev platform.

A brief list of the new features in 4.1 (full list here):

  • Web 2.0 Workbench
  • Embedded brower
  • DOM Inspector
  • Integrated JavaScript debugger (runs natively with in Eclipse Debugger Framework)
  • JavaScript Editor with code assist and validation
  • TCP Monitor (observer client-server interaction)

It looks cool but the JS editor doesn’t seem to support object oriented javascript (xxxx.prototype….)

Someone knows?

[…] I follow Ajaxian. They posted a few days back about MyEclipse. I haven’t paid much attention to it in the past, but it is looking more and more like I should. $50/year isn’t too shabby considering the amount of work required to install all those other plugins. Also, I was happy to see that they mentioned the Ruby Development Tools (RDT/RubyEclipse). I really dislike boasting, but some of you may be unaware that I started the RDT project and put 1 year of my life into it before getting any help. RadRails uses it too. […]

JSEclipse is a far better JavaScript editor. And it has object aware code completion.
