AWS Toolkit for Eclipse

Amazon Web Services announces AWS Toolkit for Eclipse.

The initial launch of the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse is targeted at Amazon EC2 developers and provides basic management features along with tools for deploying and debugging Java web applications.

The AWS Toolkit for Eclipse, based on the Eclipse Web Tools Platform, guides Java developers through common workflows and automates tool configuration, such as setting up remote debugger connections and managing Tomcat containers. Previously, developers needed specific knowledge of several systems and manual processes to get Java web applications running in scalable configurations on Amazon EC2. The steps to configure Tomcat servers, run applications on Amazon EC2, and debug the software remotely are now done seamlessly through the Eclipse IDE.

Install and License GWT Designer

Before this step, you should Install MyEclipse 7 and Install GWT.

Instatiations makes GWT Designer. It is a GUI builder that allows visual tools to generate Java code. GWT Designer does not need to be installed or used after the UI design phase. The term they use is “bi-directional code generation” meaning GWT Designer can dynamically incorporate code it hasn’t seen before, and generate new code based on your use of GWT Designer. In practice, GWT Designer lags behind the latest release of GWT, and its support for libraries such as Gwt-Ext or Gxt also lags behind. Even so, the reasonable cost of the license is enough to justify its use as an educational tool at least.

Install and License MyEclipse 7

Barriers to entry for software development have never been lower. Compare the cost of tools like MyEclipse with what was required to join Microsoft Developer Network or purchase Sun compilers. Thirty dollars a year vs. thousands.

MyEclipse :: Eclipse plugin development tools for Java, JSP, XML, Struts, HTML, CSS and EJB.
