JRebel 3.5 and GContracts 1.1.3 Released
PLUS, Sonar 2.4 released with customisable dashboards, and public preview of IntelliJ IDEA 10.
Sonar Gives Your More Control Over
Sonar version 2.4 has been released with
functionality for customising dashboards and support for Maven 3.
The new ‘Update Centre’ allows users to list plugins already
installed, check and install plugin updates, make a list of desired
plugins and check the Sonar platform for updates. Users can also
define architecture rules.
GContracts 1.1.3 With New Solution For Spring
GContracts 1.1.3 has been announced with a
solution for performing class invariant checks on Spring beans.
GContracts 1.1.3 does not make class invariant checks on Spring
beans during constructor calls, but creates a synthetic
@PostConstruct method which overtakes the class invariant check. In
addition to @Invariant, @Requires and @Ensures GContracts 1.1.3
provides separate exception types which all are descendants of
AssertionError. The direct reference to PowerAssertionError has
also been removed.
JRebel 3.5 Adds Framework and Tools Support
JRebel version 3.5 has been announced, and focuses on
supporting various open source frameworks and tools. This release
adds plugins for Spring Webflow, Wicket, JBoss AOP, RESTEasy and
Seam Wicket integration. The JRebel core has been reworked to
better support OSGi containers, such as Equinox and Felix, and
Scala and Groovy are now officially supported.
IntelliJ IDEA 10 Announce Public Preview
IntelliJ IDEA have released a Public Preview build of IntelliJ IDEA 10. This
build allows the editor window to “Float” like tool windows and
‘evaluate expression’ now automatically suggests the expression
under the cursor. Improvements have been made to the GitHub
integration, including an update that means the Check Out from
GitHub dialogue fields now have the same names as Check Out From
Git. There is also a help button in the Add Archetype Dialogue. It
is available from the Intellij IDEA 10 Public Preview page.
