2. What's New

2.1 1.5.0 Release

UI

Starting from version 1.5 it is possible to develop for the Virgo Runtime using the Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment (PDE). See the Tooling Guide for more information on this new feature.

Wizards

Server Runtime Wizard

The Server Runtime Wizard can now optionally assist the user in setting up a PDE Target Platform definition whose content reflects the Virgo Runtime repository configuration.

PDE Project Wizard

A new project wizard allows creating PDE Plug-in projects that are also Virgo Runtime projects and can be deployed on a Virgo Server

Plan Project Wizard

A new project wizard allows creating Plan projects in the workspace. Plan projects permit to deploy a plan to the Virgo Runtime within Eclipse and can be seen as a possibly more convenient alternative to adding individual bundles to the Virgo Runtime and defining their activation order via the Server Editor.

Server Editor

The Server Editor has been improved to:

  • provide proper support for PDE Target Platform definitions

  • allow multi-selection in the 'Artefact Deployment Order' section.
