MyEclipse Secure Gets the Web Goodness

IBM i shops that are looking for an alternative to IBM‘s RAD development tool for Java programming may want to check out Genuitec, the Eclipse member that supports IBM i with its MyEclipse Blue line of products. This month the company upgraded its MyEclipse Secure line of development tools with goodies like support for HTML5, jQuery, PhoneGap, and Maven technologies.
Based in Flower Mound, Texas, Genuitec develops programming tools based on the Eclipse standard that offer low-cost alternatives to IBM’s Rational Application Developer (RAD) line of products. MyEclipse Blue is targeted at enabling users to write Java and mobile apps that were initially developed for WebSphere versions 5-8. With its IDE, customers can continue to develop and enhance those applications, and move them to more lightweight Web application servers, such as Tomcat, the company says.
MyEclipse Blue 2013, which was launched earlier this year, offers support for the latest mobile technologies, such as HTML5, jQuery, and PhoneGap, not to mention support for Maven. Earlier this month, the company launched an upgrade to MyEclipse Secure, an add-on to any member of the MyEclipse family that allows developers to lock down deployments of MyEclipse-developed applications in a private cloud environment.
With MyEclipse Secure 2013, Genuitec is now supporting the same HTML5, jQuery, PhoneGap, and Maven technologies that it enabled for its main MyEclipse products earlier this year. The addition allows developers to take advantage of the latest tooling without compromising security, says Brian Fernandes, product manager for MyEclipse at Genuitec.
“MyEclipse Secure offers our enterprise customers a way to comfortably develop projects within protected environments,” Fernandes says in a press release. “Now, from within those secure environments, developers can rest assured they still have an opportunity to code with the latest technologies available.”
MyEclipse Secure starts at $45 per developer seat, and works with MyEclipse Blue, which starts at $159 per user per year. For more information see www.genuitec.com.
