CloudBees Launch Toolkit for Eclipse Developers
PLUS, Google’s Go comes to the JVM.
CloudBees Launch Toolkit for Eclipse
CloudBees have announced the GA of their Toolkit for Eclipse, providing Java
developers with an Eclipse-to-the-cloud path. The Eclipse toolkit
works by connecting DEV@cloud directly to Eclipse, allowing
developers to create and monitor Jenkins jobs running on CloudBees
inside Eclipse. The toolkit provides feedback on code changes,
automated deployment of applications in the cloud, and allows users
to build and test environments that scale up and down as required.
Developers can choose whether to run in a local environment, or
deploy to the CloudBees RUN@cloud PaaS. Visit the Toolkit for Eclipse page now to learn more.
Bug Fixes for Axiom 1.2.12
The Apache Axiom team have released version 1.2.12 of the
StAX-based object model that supports on-demand building of the
object tree. This project supports a “pull-through” model that
allows the user to directly access the underlying pull event
stream. This release adds support for
ConcurrentModificationException to iterators, and fixes a potential
class loader leak. Axiom 1.2.12 can be downloaded now.
RC of Sonar 2.9
The first release candidate of Sonar 2.9 has been
announced. This RC adds an extension point that overrides the
project definition provided by the Sonar bootstrapper, and enables
the Review web service API to create and update a review. The
Reviews page has also been extended, to enable the searching for
‘false-positive’ reviews. A kind of version control for quality
profiles has been added, in order to follow configuration changes.
More information on all the changes, is available at the Release Notes.
