Infoglue IDE

IG Eclipse Plugin Manual

We are very happy to announce a new valuable InfoGlue-tool. This time it's aimed at developers and integrates the power of the Eclipse platform into InfoGlue. Most developers work in Eclipse to develop their JSP components for InfoGlue and so far they have been forced to copy / paste their work into InfoGlue to see it in action. This plugin makes it possible to get your code deployed to the server whenever you press save in eclipse.

Prerequisites

You need the following version of Eclipse etc.

  • Eclipse 3.3.x here(Europa for example) - choose Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers
  • Java 5.x or higher
  • InfoGlue 2.6 or higher on the server
  • Also - you must always connect directly against Apache Tomcat and not against Apache HTTP-server which then uses mod_jk for example. It is known to mess up communication.
