I’m happy to announce that our open source community and projects web site exadel.org is now live. It also hosts its first project: JavaFX plug-in for Eclipse. Why did we create this web site? Exadel always had a number of projects available on its site for download, most of them are free. One of the biggest challenges for users was to get involved. Even though most products were open source, it wasn’t easy to get the source code. The actual download was hosted on exadel.com, support forum for each project was hosted on Google Groups, and there was no way to enter any bugs. There was a big disconnect. exadel.org will try to solve all this, it will provide everything you would expect from man open source site and community. Everything is integrated now, you get product download, source code, forum and Jira to enter bugs. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible to get involved and use our products.
exadel.org is still work in progress. We are planning to move more projects there in the near future. We would love to hear your feedback, let us know what we can do better!
JavaFX plug-in for Eclipse has been updated as well, it’s now version 1.2.2 with the following new feature:
- New JavaFX Script Wizard
- Outline View with navigation
I’ll have a separate blog post about the plug-in.
