Hi Riyad,

Does the latest version of this IDE support Struts 2.0?

Hi Riyad,

I am using the Eclipse 3.3 version, the open source one. Does the latest version of MyEclipse supports the JSF? Or I need to add some extra plugin to it?

And does the MyEclipse IDE has a inbuilt Jsp GUI Editor plus Configuration Editor for Struts Config file and JSF Config file?

Hi

One of the cool features of one text editor I had encountered was that the functions body can be expanded/compressed by clicking a tree like structure. like a BLACK BOX, you just see the function definition when compressed.

Our group of developers have always wanted such feature instead of plain textpad to write code. It reduces scrolling and helps in faster dveelopment as we can focus only on required code changes.

Does your IDE provide something like that? Also there are some cool editing functions provided by TEXTPAD. Would like to know more towards editing features of the IDE.

regards
Vikash

This feature is there in netBeans Vikash. I'm not sure if MyEclipse provides this!

Hi Vikash,Jyothi Shankar

if i got you right,i think the expansion/compression of function body which you were refering to is present in eclipse from version3.1 itself..please check once again...i am using version 3.1 and that feature is well supported in it..

This thread got a bit full, I'll try and reply to each person at a time:

Jothi,
No we don't support Struts 2.0 yet, we just added support for Struts 1.3 though in the 6.0 release. We are looking into Struts 2.0 support though for a future release.


Sanjeev,
Yes MyEclipse supports the latest JSF 1.2 release that is now part of the Java EE 5 specification.

And yes MyEclipse includes a Visual Webpage Designer both a Visual JSF Page and faces-config designers and Visual Struts page and struts-config designers.



Vikash,
This is called "code folding" and yes we support it in many of our editors in addition to the Java source editor.

Riyad,

Sorry for not having a very specific question, but there are plenty of IDEs floating around. Why should MyEclipse be appealing to me, what does it have that others dont?

Thanks!

Ryan,
That's the most popular question of the day, so lots of folks are wondering the same thing.

I hope I've addressed it in some of the other poster's threads, maybe you could have a look:

http://www.coderanch.com/t/105667/vc/MyEclipse-vs-Eclipse

It really boils down to what you need. If you need a Java source editor, the base Eclipe SDK is going to fit this bill just fine for you. But if you want other tools like a DB Explorer, ER Diagram tool, reverse-engineering tools, visual HTML/JSP/Struts/JSF/Facelets designers and advanced tooling like that, looking at a commercial and affordable tool like MyEclipse may be a good thing to check out.

Jothi,
My pleasure. I hope you guys get a chance to try out MyEclipse. If you do I'd encourage you to just step through 1 of our Basic tutorials (Web Projects is a good one) then 1 tutorial for whichever technology you wanted to try out.

That way you could hop in with both feet.

Riyad,

I've already tried MyEclipse but it was long before and I never had a chance to work on it for real time projects. Hopefully in the future we do it.
