With the Eclipse open-source integrated development environment platform emerging as a strong contender to be the IDE of choice for developers, vendors are gearing up for the EclipseCon conference March 20-23 in Santa Clara, Calif.
Genuitec, a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation, will be previewing its upcoming release of MyEclipse 5.0 at EclipseCon.
Among the MyEclipse 5.0 features that will be previewed is project Matisse4MyEclipse, an Eclipse integration of the popular Matisse Swing user-interface designer from the Sun NetBeans project, said Maher Masri, president of Genuitec. Matisse4MyEclipse provides simple and intuitive visual layout of UIs within Eclipse, so developers can design UIs without having to understand the complexities of Swing layout managers, widget customization, alignment or spacing, Masri said.
"Incorporation of Matisse exemplifies MyEclipse's leadership in innovative uses of Eclipse technology to tear down universally perceived technology barriers in order to provide MyEclipse users the best-of-breed productivity tools for designing, developing and delivering complex JEE, Web/AJAX, and now Swing desktop applications," Masri said in a statement.
