Genuitec Releases New MyEclipse "Bling"

Genuitec and Skyway Software have this month announced "MyEclipse Bling", a combination of two existing products, MyEclipse Blue Edition and MyEclipse for Spring; Blue plus Spring equals "Bling."

Positioned as an alternative to Rational tooling, MyEclipse Bling is offered to IBM shops as a means to fully adopt Spring technologies in their WebSphere-deployable applications all the way from inception through production release.

"Our clients asked if we could support WebSphere the way they needed, they asked for the advanced tooling already available in MyEclipse for Spring, and asked if we would be willing to stay true to our low pricing models in a combined offering," said Todd Williams, vice president of technology for the Genuitec.

"We delivered on those requests by building a software development environment that provides Spring development tools. It really does allow IBM shops to achieve the most value — and power — when using WebSphere," added Williams.

Scaffold and Bootstrap

Bling integrates with WebSphere to deploy rich apps, while using Spring code-generation tools to create many project types simultaneously. With Bling, programmers can "scaffold and bootstrap" projects for iPhone, Adobe Flex, Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow, JSF 2.0, and also ready projects for Google App Engine if desired.

MyEclipse Bling boasts support for Java EE 6, HTML 5, control of EJB and EAR deployments, Windows and Linux support, ICEFaces 2, JSF 2.0, and JPA 2.0. There are also Java Editors, HTML Editors, Inspectors, Maven, Hibernate, ALM dashboards, and project team synchronization.
