MyEclipse for Spring Sprung

Genuitec has released MyEclipse for Spring STS, a plug-in to SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) that gives users the ability to take their code and use it anyway they want without vendor or aspects lock-in. The plug-in was jointly developed by Genuitec and Skyway Software.

MyEclipse for Spring allows developers to scaffold Google Web Toolkit, Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow, Adobe Flex and Apple iPhone applications simultaneously -- a capability not found in STS or Roo. Scaffolding is easily generated from multiple types of existing data sources, providing maximum flexibility.

"One of the thematic pain points for STS and Spring Roo is that developers are required to use unfamiliar domain-driven design patterns (which utilize aspects and code weaving) that make Spring technologies less accessible to the enterprise," said Todd Williams, vice president of technology for Genuitec. "By bringing MyEclipse for Spring's easy code editors, wizards and scaffolding capabilities directly into the STS environment, developers are entirely free to utilize high-quality Spring tooling, but now have flexible coding options which use the controller, service, domain, and DAO architecture patterns they're already familiar with."
