MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition: Targeting RAD and WebSphere Development

Genuitec Provides No-Risk Option to RAD for WebSphere Developers

Genuitec announced the availability  of “MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition,” a toolsuite tailored specifically for IBM WebSphere users. This first milestone release is available for free trial download and use through April 1, 2008.

MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition provides users with all the features of MyEclipse Workbench Professional Edition, but also includes advanced customized tooling and capabilities for the IBM WebSphere application server.

IBM recently announced the end of the WebSphere Application Developer (WSAD) product lifecycle. Consequently, this requires WebSphere developers to migrate to IBM’s Rational Application Developer (RAD) tooling to take advantage of WebSphere's advanced Web Services capabilities and other features. MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition provides WebSphere users with a low cost alternative to RAD, allowing them to avoid an expensive and laborious toolset change. MyEclipse Blue Edition utilizes IBM's Web Services, and it does not nullify existing support contracts.

Moreover, MyEclipse Blue Edition gives developers the flexibility of using either toolset – as they see fit. Developers can utilize MyEclipse Blue Edition in conjunction with, or as an alternate to, RAD.

“The MyEclipse Blue Edition toolset is something our customers requested,” said Wayne Parrott, vice president of product development for Genuitec. “We meet our customers where they are. They needed new and more lightweight tools with the latest technologies, but without risk to their pocketbooks or support agreements. We delivered that.”

Milestone releases of MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition are free to the public, with an impending general availability release slated for late March.

“Genuitec will continue to develop toolsets to support IBM server lines,” said Genuitec CEO Maher Masri.  “We foresee MyEclipse Blue Edition growing alongside customer demand and in step with IBM technologies to ensure there is a viable, lightweight option for WebSphere development.”

MyEclipse 6.1 Blue Edition is backwards compatible with WebSphere 5.x and 6.0, and will continue to evolve as part of the WebSphere ecosystem.

Free trials of the initial milestone will last through April 1, 2008, with annual subscriptions available at a cost of $149 beginning with the GA release.  As with all MyEclipse products, free trials and paid subscriptions are fully supported by Genuitec’s world-class online support team.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
