Eclipse Web Tools Platform 3.3 M2 and Metawidget 1.0 Released
PLUS, RIM announce a new open source web app development platform.
New Qt WebKit integration in SWT Project
Eugene Ostroukhov has created a new project for the Qt WebKit integration in SWT.
Currently, ‘qtwidgetsinswt’ has a basic browser view for opening pages in WebKit browser and marshalling some events, and has next/previous/stop/refresh actions. The project provides SWT APIs to Qt widgets to be used in SWT-based applications. It also integrates Qt widgets into standard SWT builds so that it can be used when creating plugins for Eclipse-based products. Only win32 and cocoa32 are currently supported.
Please note that currently the project will only run on Windows and Mac, and only if Qt SDK installed. More information on the project, is available at Eugene’s blog.
The second milestone of Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) 3.3 is now available.
After Two and a Half Years, Metawidget Reaches 1.0
After two and a half years of incremental releases, Metawidget 1.0 has been released.
Metawidget is a User Interface generator that, at runtime, populates itself with UI components to match the Properties of the project’s business objects. It achieves this by inspecting the existing back-end architecture and creating widgets native to the existing front-end framework, meaning that no new technologies are introduced. This release features improved support for JSF and JPA, and refactored HiddenFieldProcessor for JSP, Struts and Spring.
It can be downloaded now.
