MyEclipse 8.0 M2 Release; Enables Debugging of Internet Explorer Apps in Real Time

Genuitec has announced the second milestone (M2) release of MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 8.0. This release is built to support Eclipse Galileo and, claims Genuitec, delivers the first debugger for Internet Explorer 6/7/8 that can remotely debug deployed applications. MyEclipse 8.0 M2 also includes support for the the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project structure so that enterprises standardized on WTP can comply with corporate mandates.

"MyEclipse is deployed in over 16,000 organizations worldwide and many of those organizations are still forced to program to Internet Explorer-specific standards -- even as far back as IE 6," said Genuitec's Riyad Kalla. "With the inclusion of a JavaScript debugger for Internet Explorer, developers for the first time can debug any application written specifically for this browser while it's already deployed."

Developers will not have to pull an application down to make bug fixes or enhancements using the MyEclipse Internet Explorer debugger since, says the company, it's the world's first tool for debugging deployed IE applications in real time.

Another enhancement to MyEclipse 8.0 M2 is the inclusion of WTP project support. Companies standardized on the WTP project structure can now develop persistence, business logic, presentation layers and more by having full access to MyEclipse technologies but maintaining corporate standards.

MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 8.0 includes MyEclipse Lite technology that allows developers to remove, add or upgrade just the portions of the IDE they use. MyEclipse is the first large-scale Enterprise IDE to address the issue of feature creep concerns by allowing developers remove or re-add entire feature stacks in the IDE depending on their tooling needs, leading to a trimmed-down and optimized development environment.

The production release of MyEclipse 8.0 is currently slated for December 2009.
