[equinox-dev] Eclipse Plugin-Based Applications and J2EE Components

All,

We are pleased to announce the availability of the ChoiceMaker Technologies
technical report "Eclipse Plugin-Based Applications and J2EE Components"
along with some pre-production software at
http://www.choicemaker.com/EclipsePlugins.htm. We welcome comments and
criticism.

Regards,

Martin


Abstract
--------
The Eclipse core runtime engine provides the benefits of component-based
development and the Plugin Development Environment (PDE) provides a
convenient means to create plugins, fragments, and features. However, the
runtime engine lacks some features for building standalone applications and
Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) components. We address this in
two ways.

First, we enhance the existing runtime engine with practical tools for
reporting errors, launching without a workspace, using external libraries,
deserializing objects, remote method invocation (RMI), and installing
Eclipse-based applications with WebStart.

Second, we introduce an alternative runtime engine that is suitable for J2EE
components because it supports Eclipse products in a single JAR archive,
does not modify shared singleton resources, and collaborates with the
security manager. This runtime, which is based on Eclipse code, supports
only part of the original?s functionality?most importantly extension points.
