The aim of this subproject is to provide a rich set of development tools for Geronimo, focusing on application development, migration, and IDE integration. Currently, the tools are:
The Geronimo Eclipse Plugin (GEP) provides an integration between Eclipse, its Web Tools Platform (WTP) Project and Geronimo that allows users to utilize WTP features to develop, deploy, debug and run applications for the Apache Geronimo application server.
The current release of the Geronimo Eclipse Plugin is v2.1.4, released on April 9, 2010. For details, see the:
GEP issues are tracked in JIRA in the GERONIMODEVTOOLS project.
Questions about GEP can be asked on the Geronimo mailing lists.
Eclipse Platform or WTP issues should be opened under the Eclipse Bugzilla.
Other questions pertaining to Eclipse, WTP, or any Eclipse Project should be asked on the Eclipse Newsgroups.
For more details and information, see How to open a bug for Geronimo Eclipse Plugin.
Nightly builds are put on the eclipse update site http://people.apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/unstable/updates.
This site has the same structure and content as the production eclipse update site http://apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/updates/, with the addition of the latest nightly build of the current GEP release under development (trunk).
As with the production site, updatesite and deployable zip files are found in http://people.apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/unstable/.
The JBoss to Geronimo Migration Tool (J2G) is an Eclipse plugin designed to assist in migrating the sources of an application written for the JBoss application server or written for Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) to the Apache Geronimo platform. More information can be found here.
Latest Release - Version 1.0.0
The first release of the J2G migration tool can be downloaded from the wiki page for the tool here:
Unofficial weekly drivers are available for download from the J2G nightly build site. The available builds should also be used with all official releases of Geronimo. These drivers require WTP 2.0.1 and its prerequisites.
Geronimo Eclipse or J2G Plugin issues can be opened in JIRA in the GERONIMODEVTOOLS project. Eclipse Platform or WTP issues should be opened under Eclipse Bugzilla. Questions regarding either plugin can be asked on the Geronimo Mailing Lists. Other questions pertaining to Eclipse, WTP, or any Eclipse Project should be asked on the Eclipse Newsgroups.
