Vasanth Velusamy July 31 English
After reviewing several tools for writing UI tests for Eclipse based products, I finally settled down on SWTBot. Even after being a long time Eclipse plugin developer, I always found that I lacked a good tool for testing UI. I kept as much business logic code as possible away from UI code and wrote regular JUnit tests for that. But invariably, I ended up in situations where it made a lot of sense to write UI tests. What drove me towards SWTBot was the simplicity in writing tests, and also their ongoing effort in providing support for GEF (Graphical Editing Framework).

Well, I am new to Eclipse. But The concept of single IDE for multiple mobile development sdks is great. And this is what Eclipse Pulsar provides. I found it very convenient to switch between the different sdks like Android and Sony Erricson. The best part of Eclipse Galileo Pulsar is that its a focused IDE for mobile developers.
Pablo J. Rogina July 30 English
I'm a C/C++ developer with interests in Linux, embedded systems and mobile application development using Qt framework. So I'm very happy I can do a "one stop shopping" regarding my IDE.
Radoslaw Urbas July 30 English
There are several new and exciting features in Galileo release. Multiple projects, hundreds of contributors, huge audience… I decided to choose my very personal Top 5 for Galileo release.
Olivier Thomann July 30 French
I'll talk about what I know best in this new version of Eclipse. I will speak first to the API Tooling project. This project was introduced in version 3.4 very briefly. The version included in Galileo was much more successful.
Darko Kalinic July 29 English
I was quite surprised with how many people came to my blog and read my earlier post on how to create a blank Struts2 project and start using this framework in NetBeans 6.5. With a release of new Eclipse, I thought it would be interesting to do the same thing, but now in this IDE. As you probably already know, Eclipse is one of the famous and certainly one of the best Java IDEs. Well, about a month ago people from Eclipse foundation released a 3.5 version of Eclipse, called Galileo.

openArchitectureWare moved to Eclipse Modeling as part of Galileo release. This blog series reports my experiences to migrate a huge oaw4 project. This is the last part - you’ll find an overview of this blog series here. oaw4 means openArchitectureWare 4.3.1, oaw5 means MWE (EMFT) + Xpand (M2T) + Xtext (TMF) - more infos at oaw WorkingGroup. Overview Migration Guide from oaw4 to oaw5.
Nanda Firdausi Muhammad July 27 English
This post is probably a little bit late since since Galileo has been released for almost 4 weeks now. Nevertheless, I’d like to give my own opinion about the release and point some interesting stuffs that may be also useful.

Mateusz Miracki July 24 Polish
A new version of the most popular IDE in Poland (and also in the Java world), saw the light of day, namely Eclipse, number 3.5 and bearing the name Galileo. A bit of new updates can be seen at first review, although there is no revolution.
Ekkehard Gentz July 23 English
openArchitectureWare moved to Eclipse Modeling as part of Galileo release. This blog series reports my experiences to migrate a huge oaw4 project. This is part 6 - you’ll find an overview of this blog series here. oaw4 means openArchitectureWare 4.3.1, oaw5 means MWE (EMFT) + Xpand (M2T) + Xtext (TMF) - more infos at oaw WorkingGroup. If you followed this blog series – your installation of oaw5 is finished. Now lets start the conversion of your oaw4 projects. My blog only covers conversion of Xpand – Xtend projects, conversion of Xtext isn’t covered. You should take a look at Peter Friese’s blogs here and the Xtext documentation here.

Eric Rizzo July 21 English
If the cave you've been living in does not have Internet service, then perhaps it will come as news to you that Galileo was successfully released last week. It's a truly impressive feat to release so reliably so many projects year after year - you'd think that corporate internal and consumer software projects would take note and figure out what it is that enables the yearly release train to succeed when so many projects deliver late, over budget, or not at all. But, I digress...

openArchitectureWare moved to Eclipse Modeling as part of Galileo release. This blog series reports my experiences to migrate a huge oaw4 project. This is part 4 - you’ll find an overview of this blog series here. oaw4 means openArchitectureWare 4.3.1, oaw5 means MWE (EMFT) + Xpand (M2T) + Xtext (TMF) - more infos at oaw WorkingGroup. This blog part is only useful for you if you’re working with UML – and also using MagicDraw as your UML tool. One Use-Case in my projects is the use of UML2 together with EMF: a Model to Model transformation (M2M) generates EMF Models (for Riena – SWT – Views) from UML2 Classdiagram (Entity) + JPA Persistence Profile.

openArchitectureWare moved to Eclipse Modeling as part of Galileo release. This blog series reports my experiences to migrate a huge oaw4 project. This is part 3 - you’ll find an overview of this blog series here. oaw4 means openArchitectureWare 4.3.1, oaw5 means MWE (EMFT) + Xpand (M2T) + Xtext (TMF) - more info at oaw WorkingGroup. You know: generated code also has to look as good as manual written code. This is the reason why openArchitectureWare supports Code – Beautifier. Since some time oaw can use the Eclipse JDT Formatter as Beautifier – the good thing of using the JDT Code Formatter: the same rules can be used in generated code as in manual written code.
Torquato Barbosa de Lima Neto July 20 Portuguese
Programs in Java, or even in other languages such as C/C++, PHP or Python, are suited to using this fantastic IDE because besides being the best IDE for Java development, it is also free.
Zviki Cohen July 20 English
Eclipse 3.5, aka Galileo, was released about a month ago. I'm following up on my article from last year, highlighting some of the less obvious but very useful features in the new released. This list does not include all the new features. For the complete "new and noteworthy" check out this link. My focus is on common features which I found useful after test driving Galileo for some time. So, without further ado, here's my list. I'm sure you have some more, so just let me know in the comments.
Peter Hendriks July 19 English
The Eclipse open source initiative is one of the biggest open source communities currently active, and since mostly backed by businesses, has a strong quality and real-world focus. Eclipse hosts a ton of projects, and most of the mature projects participate in the "release train", a yearly coordinated effort to launch new releases. This way, it's easier to keep track of Eclipse developments, and because projects depend on each other, it allows for a smoother adoption as well.
Shaolin Cheung July 18 Chinese
I have been using Eclipse Galileo for over half a month and am very pleased with this upgrade! From Europa to Ganymede to Galileo, Eclipse releases a new version each year at the end of June which brings users innovation and joy.
Jeanne Boyarsky July 17 English
I’ve been using Eclipse 3.5 for a couple months now making it a good time to share the features that affected me the most – 4 good; 1 bad.
Alexandra Niculai July 17 English
It's true, Eclipse does look very complex with all its plug-ins but taking time to get to know it is worth the effort. I've been saving a lot of time since I began using Eclipse and here are a few of the things I appreciate more.
Ekkehard Gentz July 17 English
openArchitectureWare moved to Eclipse Modeling as part of Galileo release. This blog series reports my experiences to migrate a huge oaw4 project. This is part 2 - you’ll find an overview of this blog series here. oaw4 means openArchitectureWare 4.3.1, oaw5 means MWE (EMFT) + Xpand (M2T) + Xtext (TMF) - more infos at oaw WorkingGroup. Before migrating your projects its a good idea to make some preparations and refactorings. Thanks to Karsten Thoms Migration-Blog I noticed, that one feature of oaw4 isn’t migrated at the moment: org.openarchitectureware.util.featureconfig.
Michael Rupp July 16 German
A few days ago, the new Eclipse with the code name Galileo came out, and shortly thereafter, the resulting PHP Developer tools version 2.1. Actually I do not want to switch to the new system, since Eclipse Europa has been stable so far and there are no new killer features to justify a switch.
Ekkehard Gentz July 16 English
After finishing my galileo-reviews around Target Platform I’m starting a new blog series “HowTo migrate from oaw4 to oaw5“. oaw5 isn’t a product at this time, but I’ll use this as synonym for all projects from oaw now under eclipse umbrella.
Vera Wahler July 14 English
While Galileo is out for a while I switched just last week to the new version. What I really bother about is the lack of extension locations (about which I blogged already about Ganymede).
Jin Mingjian July 14 English
The annual simultaneous release Galileo has grown to 33 projects. There are many articles about the tips and tricks of Galileo in the planet of Eclipse. So, in this article, I will not review the common tips in the Galileo, however, I will try to review some tracks of development and community process from my eye when the Galileo train are being developed. And, so, I will not cover everything in Galileo, and just show some interesting things in my eye.
Nitesh Gautam July 13 English
For those Java developers who think that Eclipse is best Java community could ever get out of Open Source other than Java itself, here is the latest release code-named Galileo. Galileo is this year’s release from Eclipse with 33 projects. Last year’s release Ganymede contained 23 projects in comparison.
Juliano D. Carniel July 12 Portuguese
One year, and another new version of Eclipse. It is called Galileo (http://www.eclipse.org/galileo). I like that in Eclipse, the organization works in all versions, there is a defined roadmap for changes in versions (2 -> 3 -> 4), and each year there must be a new release with enhancements and bug fixes, which is called the "release train."
Ekkehard Gentz July 11 English
Just read on Planet Eclipse, that JBoss Tools 3.1.M2 now supports P2 :-) Did a quick and dirty test if I can install Drools in my Galileo Eclipse 3.5 SDK on OSX Cocoa 64-bit.

This is the last part of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. Plug-ins inside IDE and Target Platform. If you followed my blogs then you know which of your Plug-ins (Bundles) belong to the IDE and wich to the Target Platform, where they come from and where they will be stored.
Ekkehard Gentz July 10 English
Part 12 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. As many of you already know, I’m developing OSGI Enterprise Applications, so much of my work uses Target Platforms heavyly. My projects are also model-driven using openArchitectureWare (oAW). My work is based on Open Source where possible – not only Eclipse Projects, also 3rdParty like Easybeans.
Ekkehard Gentz July 9 English
Part 11 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. Target Platform (TP) – only Plug-ins. Eclipse as Runtime Platform contains many interesting projects.
Zviki Cohen July 8 English
Eclipse Galileo (3.5) has a shiny new plugin installation dialog box. In fact, the whole process went through a complete re-factoring. This has become a tradition in Eclipse: 3.3 and 3.4 each had a completely different plugin installation routines.
Rene Groeschke July 7 English
Its just some days ago that the eclipse foundation released version 3.5 (a.k.a galileo) of the best (opensource) IDE. The new eclipse release is called galileo, traditional named after a jupiter moon. I was a bit sceptic because the first release of eclipse ganymede (3.4) last year wasn’t that stable and it tooks two minor updates to get a real stable version of ganymede.
Ekkehard Gentz July 7 English
Part 10 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. I told you that you always have to separate clearly between 1. IDE (development, workbench)and 2. Target Platform (Runtime, Product), but there’s also a twilight zone ;-)
Marc Teufel July 6 German
In June this year, the Eclipse Foundation again presented their annual Simultaneous Release “Galileo”. This article gives an overview to the interesting new features in the Java Development Tools.
Ekkehard Gentz July 5 English
Part 9 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. This blog entry reports some problems and how to solve them: 1. Cycles, 2. Use clauses, 3. Duplicates, 4. No schema Definition (Source Code Bundles not found), 5. Reload problems.
Rodrigo Urubatan Ferreira Jardim July 5 Portuguese
It has again reached that time of year in which the staff of the Eclipse Foundation releases another "Release Train", i.e. a new version of several projects released simultaneously with compatibily between them.
Ekkehard Gentz July 4 English
Part 8 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. This part is a direct follow-up of part 7 where we talked about viewing @ Plug-ins defining your running IDE. If you don’t have read part 7 please read it first. Now we want to look in detail at your Target Platform Plug-ins.

Eclipse Galileo Blogathon Entry
Michael R. Head July 3 English
The new Eclipse (3.5 AKA Galileo) is out. They're giving out prizes to folks that blog about the new release. Two years ago, they had another such contest for which I submitted an entry. I was so happy with the nice logoed polo shirt, that I decided to do it again. (Actually, I probably would have written a review anyway).
Ekkehard Gentz July 1 English
Part 6 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. We finished part 5 with a Target Definition containing Plug-ins (bundles) from different kinds of locations.

A few days after Galileo, the new version of Eclipse, arrived, I checked what's changed.
Ekkehard Gentz June 30 English
You know from my Galileo – review – Blogs that I’m now working under OSX Cocoa-64bit. If you try to download one of the easy-to-start EPP Packages for Galileo, there’s no Cocoa 64-bit – download available.
Ekkehard Gentz June 30 English
Part 5 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. You have successfully defined a Target Platform for Riena following part 4 of this series. But that was only a very simple definition – all was based on one location: the Galileo Software Site.
Gordon Hopper June 30 English
Eclipse 3.5 (code named Galileo) is out. Eclipse is my preferred IDE, so of course I gave it a try. Here are my thoughts.
Saurav Sarkar June 29 English
It is been like a new Fifa version for which we wait eagerly and passionately, Like EA sports, Eclipse foundation comes up with dazzling features with its every release. I had the fortunate chance to upgrade my tool to Eclipse 3.5 from 3.4.
Jose Nunez June 29 Spanish
Regular readers of this Blog know that I use Eclipse as an editor to work on the code for KodeGeek.com and StupidZombie. Upon seeing that there is a version (Galileo) for OSX, I decided to try it, especially with StupidZombie. And how does Galileo compared with the previous version, Ganymede?
Ekkehard Gentz June 29 English
Part 4 of my Galileo Reviews around Target Platforms. An Overview of this blog series can be found here. You should understand the differences between your IDE (your tool, the workbench) and a Target Platform (product, runtime).

Alexander Culum June 28 English
I wanted to play with Eclipse Galileo and the Memory Analyzer (MAT), which I used successfully some time ago to identify possible memory leaks.
Oleg Tikhonov June 28 English
First of all I would like to thank organizers who made remarkable meeting in Israel. In Eclipse project there are a lot of “things” that I wish talk about. But it's not issue here. The first feature I'm going to mention is a breadcrumb. It was offered since release 3.4. What's a matter?
Ekkehard Gentz June 27 English
If you read my last blog “Whats your Target?” you have identified what bundles you need in your IDE. Which Eclipse 3.5 Download to use?
Madhu Samuel June 27 English
When 40% of all the commercial projects are failing due to one or the other reasons, the technique and style of the eclipse developers have successfully delivered one more annual release of Eclipse Galileo. This is one of the modern wonders. Nothing more than a set of 'strong minds' are required for this kind of achievement.
Michael Elman June 27 English
During the last 5 years it became sort of tradition: I'm waiting till the end of June to download the latest release of Eclipse. The cynics usually say: "Wait for the first SP, the release is always full of bugs!" But I'm never patient enough to wait.
Sebastian Pietrowski June 26 English
Eclipse Galileo just have arrived. It is common that every product in newest version go to the top. Currently there is Eclipse Galileo, and nearly finished NetbeansIDE 6.7RC3 and InteliJ 9.0M1. As always this products comes with great new features for us developers. So I decided to go through new features and see what’s going on in Eclipse Galileo.
Mark Cappel June 26 English
The Eclipse Galileo release of 33 major projects showcases the diversity and innovation going on inside the Eclipse ecosystem. Get an overview of several Galileo projects, along with resources to find out more information.
Paul Davis June 26 English
The final release of Eclipse Galileo has arrived. I'm a heavy Eclipse user so, it's time to upgrade and put it through its paces. I'm using the version for Java EE developers on Kubuntu 9.04 because all real developers use Linux :-)
Bertrand Braux June 26 French
Like the annual summer solstice that takes place at this time, the Eclipse Foundation has just published the new versiou of its open source platform, also called Eclipse, on its site, which is now version 3.5.
Sven Efftinge June 26 German
The Galileo release shows: modeling has arrived in the mainstream. Innovations in the Eclipse Modeling Project (EMP) emphasize the sigficant trend toward pragmatic, problem-oriented solutions. This article gives an overview of developments in the various modeling projects from the Galileo release that has taken place.
Ekkehard Gentz June 25 English
My favorite target for vacations is the island of Crete. But let's talk about the Eclipse Target Platform (TP). I know many developers never used the target platform and others giving up, because it was not easy to manage. But this is definitely past – if you upgraded to Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) then you should really think about using it.
Rencana Tarigan June 25 Indonesian
June 24, 2009 was the official release of Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo). I downloaded the application directly as well as some other parts that exist in the new Eclipse 3.5 whic I use when coding.
Markus Kuehle June 25 German
It's nearly a year ago that Eclipse Ganymede (3.4) was published, which brought many improvements compared to its predecessors - I reported them. It seems that many companies are still slowly converting to Eclipse Ganymede and now there is already a successor: Eclipse Galileo.
Benoit Goudreault-Emond June 25 English
It's that time of the year again... here's my short review of Eclipse Galileo, which I've been using since M6. While reading this review, keep my usage pattern in mind: programming for a large portal written in Java using frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate. Domain objects are mostly annotated, with some Hibernate XML thrown in. Spring configuration is still using XML for now.
Schalk Neethling June 25 English
Today the Eclipse project will be releasing their new major update entitled Galileo to the world. There is a lot of excitement building up around this release and I am definitely very much a part of the crowd that is eagerly awaiting the release, so much so, that I could not wait for the final release and decided to grab the latest release candidate (RC4) and take it for a spin.
Emanuel Graf June 25 German
Yesterday, the new Eclipse release named Galileo arrived. The search for the new, great features is difficult. I do not have a new feature that I found really knocked my socks off. But there were many small improvements and the new Eclipse is really very good.
Alex Blewitt June 24 English
The Eclipse Foundation today announced the release of Eclipse Galileo, the simultaneous release of 33 projects, including the venerable Eclipse JDT. As well as the new features covered by InfoQ already, the Galileo release includes the PHP Development Tools Project, as well as stalwarts like modelling packages and the persistence layer EclipseLink (formerly known as Oracle's TopLink).
Rafael Lossurdo June 24 Portuguese
As I had commented, today the latest version of the Eclipse IDE, Galileo, launched.
Casey Marshall June 24 English
Summer is here, which means it's time to cool off in the San Marcos river and escape the Texas heat. It's also time to download a new Eclipse -- Eclipse Galileo (3.5) released today. Phurnace Deliver builds on Eclipse technology, so I follow the latest developments in the community.
Lorenzo Simionato June 24 Italian
Today Eclipse Galileo was released, a popular IDE for Java application development and beyond. This is the so-called "simultaneous release", which is an annual event where a new version is released. The release is not only of the platform (which is a part of version 3.5), but also of numerous projects (such as for web applications), which number more than 30.
Mirko Stocker June 24 German
You read everywhere that a new Eclipse version was recently released! For the last few years, it's always been a reason to rejoice the various RCs and then the final install. Only this year, I was left rather cold. Not because I don't use Eclipse, as a CDT user (and former contributor) I work with it every day. Is Eclipse Galileo therefore no longer a reason to rejoice?
Ed Burnette June 24 English
Besides death and taxes, there is one other certainty in the life of a software developer: slipping schedules. Every year, though, Eclipse continues to defy that expectation by releasing a major new version in late June. Today, the Eclipse Galileo release train arrived exactly on time, for the 6th year in a row.
Ian Bull June 24 English
Today is the big day! Eclipse 3.5 – Galileo – is available for the general public. To count down the final push towards Galileo, I have been reviewing the Top 10 features that I’m most excited about. There are tons of other great features – such as the SWT port to Cocoa – that I personally don’t make use of, so if you disagree with my Top 10 list, I encourage you to publish your own.
Markus Junginger June 24 German
Eclipse 3.5 is now available for download. Here are a few examples of the new features of Eclipse Galileo.
Zviki Cohen June 24 English
Eclipse Galileo (3.5) is released today. Mac users downloading the new release will notice that, unlike previous releases, they have some interesting choices to make. They need to choose between "Mac OS X (Carbon)" and "Mac OS X (Cocoa)". There's also a third choice, which is currently not mainstream, the "Mac OS X (Cocoa) 64 bit". So, which version is right for you?
Ekkehard Gentz June 23 English
If you are a “Friend of Eclipse” like me, then you perhaps already have downloaded the newest Eclipse 3.5 (aka Galileo) - otherwise you have to wait until June-24.
Ian Bull June 23 English
As many people have already said, Galileo is available for Friends of Eclipse. As Chris pointed-out, one of the reasons Eclipse is able to ship quality software, consistently on-time, is because of the modularity offered by OSGi.
Gary Thompson June 23 English
Well it's amazing, the latest eclipse release train has come round the tracks and to use an old marketing cliché 'it's good to talk'. So what about the new version - what's good? Well I have been doing an awful lot of emf work and this has improved a lot.
Sebastian Bauer June 23 German
Traditionally, the plug-in for C/C++ development, known as C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT), in included in the annual release of Eclipse. This article briefly describes what components Eclipse Galileo gives to CDT developers and what improvements are made.
Ian Bull June 22 English
Software development can be characterized by the management of two separate, yet equally important groups of artifacts. The source code you write and the libraries you depend on. Much of our education, tooling, and software engineering literature focuses on the first part – this post focuses on the second.
Aurelien Pupier June 22 English
With Eclipse 3.5, some new interesting features appears to improve the publication of Eclipse products and features. Now you can publish p2 metadata directly from the build instead of generating it later based on binary jars.
Dave Carver June 22 English
I've been using Eclipse as my primary IDE for development since early 2005. During that time I've used it for a variety of languages and tasks, but one thing that has always disappointed me from an XML Developer's stand point were the built in tools. They were either non-existant, or just were not to the level that I needed or expected.
Heiko Seeberger June 22 German
While the last release for Eclipse Equinox made rather minor changes, the new Galileo release adds a multitude of new features, mostly thanks to the new version 4.2 of OSGi.
Zhongbo Li June 22 Chinese
In two days, several top-level Eclipse community projects will be officially released as Eclipse Galileo. BIRT is the package that remains the most important one to me.
Ian Bull June 21 English
s I mentioned yesterday, tools such as the Memory Analyzer demonstrates just how dominant Eclipse is in the IDE space. And while Eclipse has many useful tools, nothing has changed the face of the IDE as much as the Mylyn project. Mylyn is more than just a cool plug-in for Eclipse, it completely changes the way developers work, bringing your productivity to a whole new level.
Ian Bull June 20 English
With all the great work going on in the Eclipse Run-time space, like the EMF Runtime, RAP, Birt Charting Engine, ECF, Jetty and of course Equinox, I sometimes forget that Eclipse started as an excellent platform for tools. The Eclipse Memory Analyzer project reminded me just how good Eclipse tools are.
Ian Bull June 19 English
As readers of my blog are no doubt aware, I have been counting down the Top 10 Galileo features that I’m most excited about. Galileo is the name of this years “Eclipse Release Train”, the simultaneous release of 33 Eclipse projects. Galileo will available for download on June 24th, but “Friends of Eclipse” get it sooner. Friends of Eclipse is a donation program setup by the Eclipse foundation.
Stephen Denne June 19 English
Here are some improvements to JDT Project in Galileo that I personally find useful.
Samuel Fleischle June 18 German
With anticipation, I have the first release candidate of Eclipse Galileo, the new 3.5 version, to test.
Ian Bull June 18 English
The next feature on the Top 10 Galileo Features (according to me) comes from the Eclipse Modeling Project. The Eclipse Modeling Project is arguably one of the most diverse, yet well focused, top level projects at Eclipse.
Ian Bull June 17 English
Just 1 week until the Galileo release, and I’m using this opportunity to count down the top 10 features in Galileo that I’m really excited about. Previously I talked about the improved tooling support in the compare editor, and the enhancements to the Java 2 JavaScript bridge. Number 8 on my top 10 list is the new RAP Look and Feel.
Ian Bull June 16 English
With Eclipse 3.5 — Galileo — just around the corner, I am counting down the top 10 features I’m most excited about. Number 9 on my list is the improved Java 2 Javascript bridge available in the SWT Browser widget. The SWT Browser now supports both calling Javascript from Java and calling Java from Javascript.
Ian Bull June 16 English
The Eclipse 2009 Release — codename Galileo – will be available in about 10 days. To help countdown the final push, I have decided to review my Top 10 Galileo features. I need to stress that these are my top 10 features. On a daily basis I make heavy use of the Eclipse SDK, Mylyn, Modeling and RAP, so my top 10 comes from these projects.
Christian Baranowski June 15 German
Like every year, a new Eclipse version is on the way ... in three weeks, it is time again to re-release a collection of Eclipse projects, this time under the name Galileo. The release has once again improved a lot, especially in the modeling tools, but also in the Java Development Tools and the Eclipse platform, where there are loads of cool new feature. In this short article I will briefly show what I've found to be good in the RC3 and RC4 release of Galileo.
Ekkehard Gentz June 15 English
Before I start my blog-series about Eclipse 3.5 Galileo, lets start with a short summarize: I’m using Eclipse 3.5 since Milestone M7 for my daily work as architect and developer of OSGI Enterprise business applications. this means I have large workspaces with many projects, complex target platforms using Eclipse and 3rd Party with duplicates / overlapping, cycles, wrong use-clauses…, and I’m running under OSX Cocoa.
Cedric Brun June 15 English
Eclipse Galileo aka 3.5 simultaneous release is coming soon. We now all have this fuzzy feeling when development stops and we stay here a bit dizzy, wondering what we'll do next.
Hiroki Kondo June 15 Japanese
You may have noticed that recently on Eclipse.org, there is a header that says "Galileo Arrives in Two Weeks". Yes, Eclipse 3.5 release on 6 /24 after a two week wait. I will report on what I think is good in RCP from a plug-in developer's perspective.
Amit Surana June 13 English
Eclipse is a one of the best products I have ever come across. Eclipse is panacea for millions of developers who need to write code or maintain it or even test it. Eclipse plays major role in lives of millions of people. Millions of Eclipse users think it is 'just' an IDE. But millions others treat Eclipse as a Platform.
Ankur Sharma June 13 English
First time I used Eclipse it was Europa. Completely missed Ganymede. And it was only early this year I saw Galileo taking shape. So this review comes from the perspective of a relatively novice plug-in developer.

I’ve been a long time user of Eclipse, but also a critic of SWT – the UI toolkit that Eclipse uses. While Eclipse has always been a very productive tool on OS X, SWT has always lagged a bit behind other platforms. But the great thing about Eclipse 3.5, and SWT in general, is that it is now using Cocoa instead of Carbon.

1 year after the Eclipse 3.4 release, codename Ganymede, the Eclipse 3.5 release, codename Galileo, is coming on June 24, 2009. Many new features will be included with Galileo.

Since I have reviewed the past two Eclipse release trains, I’d figure I’d throw in my thoughts for Galileo.

In the last Eclipse annual release, Ganymede, there were 23 projects on the train. On the Galileo train, we have grown by 10 projects and are at 33 projects. In terms of enhancements, there are so many new things in Galileo that I’ll only talk about my five favorite things from the various projects.

The Eclipse Foundation is about to release their newest version of their IDE, nick-named Galileo. I should say first that I am a fan of Eclipse and that it is my IDE of choice for Java development. I have recently tried NetBeans again for some JavaFX coding and I was unsatisfied with the experience (not because it did not handle the code well, but because I did not like the UI and the code completion is nowhere as good as Eclipse). I decided to give the latest pre-release version of Eclipse a shot to see if it was able to handle JavaFX scripting as well as NetBeans.

"I think there is a world market of may be 5 computers", by Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943.

Today computers are ruling the world. Who ever opted out of open source projects, wait and see on 24th of June, 2009. Around 50 projects are rolling out under the umbrella of Eclipse Galileo.

Eclipse is currently running a Galileo Blogathon. A good chance to get a free T-shirt…. ;-)

The first thing I like about the Eclipse Galileo releases is that it does not dramatically change things. This makes keeping my articles uptodate at vogella.de easilier.

At the moment I’m testing the “new” release canidate 2 of Eclipse 3.5 Galileo (okay rc 3 is out but not on the official download page).

Since eclipse 1.0 has been released back in November 2001 it has evolved into a pretty popular and feature rich IDE. I remember using eclipse 2.0.1 first time, it was pretty much only a Java development IDE with little support for application containers.

For the past several years, in each June, Eclipse will Simultaneously release some projects. This year Galileo will release 33 projects on the track.

I’m happy to announce that EMF-2.5 will come along with support for the brand new Eclipse-Databinding API coming with Eclipse-Galileo. A big kudos goes to Matthew Hall who reviewed my patches and helped me shaping the support and its documentation (more in bug 262160).

It's that time again when the Eclipse release is just around the corner. I have tried the Galileo Release Candidate 1 with my Debian Lenny x86_64 views. Here are my first impressions and the benefits I noticed.

Eclipse 3.5 release, aka Galileo is just around the corner. The final release will be at the end of June. Internally, we are already using Galileo for our own development and we are happy to report that nWire runs smoothly with this new release of Eclipse.

Just yesterday, I tried the release candidate Eclipse 3.5 Galileo RC1 - a great IDE for Java-developers. The Eclipse development model is constructed as follows: once every 2-3 months is the so-called milestone-build (a celebration of the letter M). In the case of Eclipse 3.5, it started with the build M6, followed by the build M7 to add features, and then a series of release candidates for beta testing.
