The Beans are really cold

Sorry guys, I just came across this posing. That’s just so funny. :mrgreen:. He is one of the guys that actually remember statistics. Honestly, which one of us developers really cares about the marketing guys and their reports and statistics (sorry Ian ;))? I think the following image speaks for itself.

Netbeans vs. Eclipse

Googlipse

Did you ever hear about GWT – the Google Web Toolkit? It’s a nice way of writing Ajax Web Clients in Java which run as JavaScript in the browser. Googlipse is an Eclipse plug-in that integrates very nice with Eclipse WTP.

The Eclipse Space Shuttle

After building Callisto the Eclipse Foundation continues enjoying the space. This time the guys launched the Eclipse Space Shuttle to build an Orbit around the Eclipse Ecosystem. :) The Eclipse Orbit is the eagerly discussed repository for shared components to be reused by the different Eclipse projects and – of course – within the Eclipse Ecosystem.

Although I like this idea I still would see more of this happen at the root source, i.e. in the repository of the originating component. Basically it’s just about adding a MANIFEST.MF file with some cool entries to the project and republishing it as a jar conforming to a specific naming schema. I would wish more Open Source projects would provide this out of the box. Even if you don’t use OSGi or Equinox it’s still a great way to document your dependencies.
