By Greg Stachnick-Oracle on Feb 04, 2010
The latest release of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, 184.108.40.206, was released today and it is chock full of new features for web application development.
AppXRay and AppXaminer
In this release we introduce AppXRay, OEPE’s dependency validation engine. AppXRay analyzes a project or application in order to understand its interconnected dependencies and then to provide validation, advanced code completion, and navigational assistance between these dependencies. For example, in a JSF application, AppXRay tracks pages, tags, images, css, resource bundles, configuration files, backing beans, variables, and more.
Also new in this release is the AppXaminer dependency viewer provides a visual representation of the dependencies of a project. AppXaminer displays dependency relationships, broken relationships, and allows for easy dependency navigation throughout the project.
Web Application Tools
For web development OEPE 220.127.116.11 provides new tools for JavaServer Faces. New facets are available for the SunRI, myFaces, and Apache Trinidad JSF libraries to improve JSF project configuration. The Eclipse Web Page Editor (WPE) has been enhanced to provide better rendering for tags, css, and resource bundles. Applications that define resource bundles for multiple regions can even be rendered at design-time by toggling the resource locale in the WPE.
A new Tag Palette displays all tags available for drag and drop along with new editors and wizards for easy tag configuration and binding. Use the Data Palette to view variables (local scope, session scope, application scope, managed beans, etc.) available to the page and drag them into the design or source views.
Finally, an enhanced Property Sheet enables easier tag and variable configuration by providing wizards for data binding, page flow, css, and more.
WebLogic JMS Configuration Editor
OEPE 18.104.22.168 provides a new tools for JMS module configuration and deployment. The WebLogic JMS Configuration editor includes a form based layout, wizards, and validation to streamline editing of the module-jms.xml file. Integrated F1 Context Sensitive Help quickly connects you to documention and best practices for JMS configuration.
