A couple of Eclipse items today.
Eclipse unveils modeling framework - I'm not sure what the EMF will actually do. Will it provide functionality out of the box, or is it infrastructure for plug-in builders? Ah well, time will tell. It's not out yet - www.eclipse.org/ems is still 404 compliant.
IBM to shine light on new Eclipse - Eclipse, which released a test version of the new framework in June, will release a final version on Sept. 18. Huh? I didn't realise that I was using a test version. Am I? Again, time will tell...
Update: The SolarEclipse plug-in features, amongst other things, HTML and JSP syntax highlighting. JSP code assist/completion planned. Cool.
Further update: the EMF URL was wrong - it's www.eclipse.org/emf. Found via the Eclipse Wiki page. It's a framework rather than usable product (hence 'modeling' - doh!), and will be available (looks at watch) any time now.
UML modeling is already available, but hooo, it's expensive.Posted to Java by Simon Brunning at September 10, 2002 12:46 PM
