Eclipse Plugins Updated for 3.0 Category
Eclipse Plugins Updated for 3.0 Category: Java
I finally got around to updating my Eclipse Plugins package for Eclipse 3.0 → Download or read the Release Notes. Below is a list of plugins included in this download. I dropped Lomboz and JSEditor b/c they didn't work at all with 3.0 on Windows - which I expect is the largest user base. Additions include CSS Editor and Doclipse.
- XMLBuddy 2.0.10 - XML Editor
- Colorer 0.6.0 - General Syntax Highlighter (JSPs, HTML, CSS, etc.)
- Jalopy 1.0b11 - Source Code Formatter
- Easy Explorer 1.0.1 - Open Explorer/Finder
- Tomcat Launcher 3.0 beta - Run and debug Tomcat
- CSS Editor 0.0.4
- Doclipse 0.7.0 - a Javadoc tag plug-in
Colorer and Jalopy don't work on OS X, so I wouldn't even bother installing them. Colorer has issues on Linux too. For OS X, I'd recommend buying a subscription to My Eclipse. It's only $30 and if you can afford a Mac, what's another $30? For a source code formatter on OS X, I recommend buying IDEA - it's only $200 - same cost principle applies. I tend to use IDEA a lot more on the Mac simply b/c it's faster and you don't need to install all these plugins. However, I've been stuck a lot in Eclipse-land lately because of it's multiple-project-in-one-pane support - as well as it copies and pastes code nicely into Word.
In addition to these plugins, I recommend installing the Spring IDE Plugin if you're using Spring [HowTo] - and Spindle if you're using Tapestry. Hopefully, distributions like this will become unnecessary with the introduction of the Web Tools project. 七月 23, 2004 03:31 下午 MDT Permalink
