Latest Eclipse Plugin Now Available (1.0.33)
By pelegri on Sep 22, 2009
The GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse is our all-in-one bundle that includes the Eclipse IDE (wiki) - the main alternative to that other IDE - the GlassFish Server and the GlassFish Plugin (home, intro), all in a single download.
The GlassFish Plugin is updated quite frequently but, fortunately, it is quite easy to update the plugin from the bundle so you don't have to do a full-reinstall. The latest versions of the plugins are 1.0.32 (9/4/09) and 1.0.33 (9/11/09) - that's just a week apart - and a full list of changes is always available through the Release Notes.
Although WTP's support for Java EE 6 has been Delayed until mid-2010 the GlassFish plugin provides critical Java EE 6 wizards - see Arun's latest entry in his TOTD series: Java EE 6 (Servlet 3.0 and EJB 3.1) wizards in Eclipse - and additional wizards are planned by GlassFish v3 FCS.
These plugins can be installed on Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede and Eclipse 3.5 Galileo. Galileo seems to have a nice set of features (Wiki, blogathon, DZone) and a co-bundle of Eclipse 3.5.1, GlassFish v3 and the latest plugins will be available when GlassFish v3 ships.
