v ray,

MyEclipse has a free 30-day trial so you can try it out to ensure it does what you want before purchasing. You can see it in action in the flash demos on the homepage here: www.myeclipseide.com

Bikash,

The issue you're seeing with messages to standard output is that Tomcat 5's logging configuration is simply different and more sophisticated than Tomcat 4. As a result, it has different defaults that cause different behavior. It's not really related to the switch to MyEclipse. However, since you are using MyEclipse, you can now use our full end to end debugging capbility for both JSP pages and Java code to simply set breakpoints, inspect variables, modify your code, etc while your application is running. Please have a look at the MyEclipse Feature Overview presentation, particularly the J2EE Development section to see how this is done. I think you'll find it much easier than debugging by print statements. :-)
Rafael,

I'm not sure why you're seeing an issue running a 32-bit build of Eclipse on a 64-bit platform since the OS should be fully backward compatible. I believe you simply have to run in 32-bit mode and that should resolve the dll issue you're seeing.

As for Easy Eclipse versus MyEclipse, MyEclipse is a fully integrated IDE designed to facilitate Java EE and AJAX development. It isn't a collection of independently built plugins like Easy Eclipse but more like IBM's Rational tools, Borland's IDEs, WebLogic Workshop, in both the level of the tools provided as well as their integration. The main issue with plugin collections is simply that the individual pieces are not designed to work together since they were developed independently by different sources. This is most evident at the "seams" as you cross from the functionality provided by one plugin to another. That said, plugin collections might be "enough" for certain types of development. To see what MyEclipse has to offer, I'd encourage you to look at MyEclipse in action as Riyad posted here .
Karen,

Thanks for the kind words about our pricing. We really enjoy providing tools under a model that is globally affordable, even for individuals. We never appreciated the way that other companies that would try to add on support and updates like a pricey order of fries ("you want support with that?") at purchase time. So, we include everything under a fixed price. I think it's really the most straightforward and comprehensive model out there. Oh, and we have a money-back guarantee too. Try that with someone else. ;-)

Karen,

MyEclipse works with CVS "out of the box" and other repository plugins (Team providers) can be installed to work with other systems. For Subversion you can use Subclipse (http://subclipse.tigris.org). It's installable from an Eclipse update site here: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.2.x

I'm curious to know this, because we recently faced
the dilemma of building in J2EE or Ruby on Rails.

Kind regards,

Gian,

Riyad is taking a bit of vacation time so I'll try to answer for him.

Basically, the Ruby market is one we are continuing to watch to gauge demand as it matures. It's certainly an interesting technology. However, at the present time the world-wide Java EE tools market is still several orders of magnitude larger than the Ruby tools market and it's this size difference that drives our strategic decisions on where we allocate our development resources. That said, we constantly re-evaluate our product focus based on demand from our large user community and tweak the product mix accordingly.

Hi Riyad,

Just wanted to know if MyEclipse provides a Wizard to develop WebServices and the needed wsdl and deployment files (like .wsdd files). Also how easy it is to generate stubs out of the generated Web Services?

Thansk,

Dinesh,

Yes, MyEclipse has full support for creating either the web service itself or a client for an existing service. Tutorials for both are in our Educational Materials section on the website. Specifically, to see how to create a client for an existing service please see the Using the Web Services Client Generation in MyEclipse. For creating a service from Java code please see Creating a Web Service (code-first).

Would I have to set some paths or what should I do?

Thanks in Advance



Atul,

Riyad is actually on vacation at the moment so I'm trying to fill in for him. I'd recommend that you install either of the current MyEclipse releases (5.5GA or 6.0M1) from our downloads page using our all-in-one installers. Once the product is installed, you should watch the Flash-based intros to MyEclipse that are on our homepage in the center section. After that to see how to begin using web technologies with MyEclipse I'd recommend you look at our Working with Web Projectstutorial from the Educational Materials section.

Hope that helps,
