Eclipse mania is back with Helios

Last year around the same time I blogged about new upcoming release of Eclipse Galileo. An year has passed since then and Eclipse is back again with new version called Helios which will be released on June 23rd. Eclipse as Wayne Beaton says is more than just an IDE. Eclipse initially may have started off as an IDE, but today Eclipse has evolved into a platform.

If you were thinking that only Linux has many flavors/distributions, then look at the Helios downloads page. There is an Eclipse distribution for virtually every kind of developer. If you are a JME developer, Eclipse Pulsar is best suited, or if you are a SOA developAer, grab Eclipse SOA release, and so on.

If you google 'wiki Eclipse', the first search result will be Eclipse (Software), not the natural 'Eclipse'. There is an interesting story of why Eclipse is named so. Some say, it was because of close rivalry between IBM and Sun. IBM wanted to name the IDE as 'Solar Eclipse' but later on they released it as 'Eclipse'. Well this is just an heard story. :)

This release of Eclipse comes with a new feature called 'Eclipse Marketplace', can be accessed from Help-> Eclipse marketplace. The marketplace is a set of customized plugins called solutions. Each solution is packaged along with its dependencies making the installation more smooth and easy. Any vendor can contribute a solution to this marketplace.

Eclipse Foundation provides many customized downloads of Eclipse. However I am going to write only about Eclipse Pulsar. Eclipse Pulsar is designed especially for mobile developer. It makes easy to get the tools and handset SDKs you need for developing mobile applications. Pulsar is based on Eclipse project Mobile Tools for Java (MTJ). Developing JME applications with the help of Pulsar is very easy. I have already written a decent HOW-TO on using the IDE. So I will not re-iterate it here.

I would definitely like to see the Android and Blackberry SDKs to be added to the list as both provide Eclipse plugins for their app development. This will be a great value to the millions of developers. I must refute Blackberry here for providing their own version numbers for Eclipse downloads (Eclipse 3.4+RIM Eclipse plugin is named as 1.1 Eclipse SDK). It really confuses the developers. They should follow standards with Eclipse release cycles. Furthermore Blackberry platform is more or less JME based, so RIM can easily take advantage of the MTJ tools.

To conclude, I 'd like to thank the entire Eclipse community for such a great product and in case you are unaware of Eclipse labs, have a look at it here.

Cheers,
/A

Helios is crap, it freezes and crashes more than drunk pilot over the Arctic.

ditto, I went back to 3.5. I would not upgrade just yet.
