Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) & GlassFish
[URL="http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/"] [IMG]http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/EclipseHelios.png[/IMG] [/URL] Eclipse 3.6 is now [URL="http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/"]available[/URL] as a final release. This is the yearly major release for the IDE and its main projects such as WTP (the one most relevant for server-side developers). [URL="http://www.java.net/blogs/ludo"]Ludo[/URL] has all the [URL="https://glassfish.dev.java.net/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=47693"]details[/URL] if you want to use this release with GlassFish : v3 and 3.0.1 of course but also earlier v2.x versions.
While for earlier versions of Eclipse developers had the choice of using the GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse (an all-in-one bundle) or simply adding the GlassFish plugin using a pre-wired software site, it's a tiny bit more complicated for the time being with this 3.6/Helios release. You'll need to add [url]http://download.java.net/glassfish/eclipse/helios[/url] as a new software site (preferences>install/update>Available Software Site) and install the plugin (Help>Install New Plugin) while making sure that "Group Items by Category" is unchecked.
Real soon now this feature should be on the Eclipse marketplace (check [URL="http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/oracle-enterprise-pack-eclipse"]this[/URL] out) and in the longer term, the GlassFish plugin is being moved to the [URL="http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/oepe/index.html"]Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse[/URL] (OEPE). Finally, note that no matter how you get the plugin, it'll come with full Java EE (5 & 6) javadocs. Feedback and bug reports should go to [URL="https://glassfishplugins.dev.java.net"]glassfishplugins.dev.java.net[/URL].
PS: it's fun to see Sun Microsystems still listed in the IDE's splash screen.
