Version 188.8.131.52 of Oracle’s set of free plug-ins for Eclipse IDE includes a number of new features to streamline authoring and deployment of apps. For example, updated capabilities for the Oracle WebLogic application server make it easier to catch errors in the design phase, reducing the number of code cycles required to bring a project to completion.
This version of Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 11g also includes AppXRay, a Java development tool that makes it easier for team members to collaborate on the same application. “With the new AppXRay feature, Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse provides a means to easily visualize the complex dependencies of your application, resulting in higher quality code and faster development time. Innovations such as AppXRay underline Oracle’s continued commitment to provide tools and frameworks to enable developers to build, test, and optimize Java and open source applications,” said Oracle’s Ted Farrell.
Other enhancements to the package include FastSwap development capabilities, WYSIWIG Web page editing, Service Component Architecture support, JAX-WS Web service validation, an integrated tag and data palette, and smart editors.
