I have pushed my first bug fix with EGit today (bug 319343, which occurred when canceling an XML Security Tools wizard). Developing the fix was easy, using EGit not (OK, some rookie trouble): The commit to my local repo worked fine. But the push failed. I dropped over bug 317389. Every push failed with the… Continue reading First steps with EGit
Quite a few things are happening around the XML Security Tools at the moment. For one thing, Eric Fu (Canada) is supporting me with bug reports and (much more important) their fixes. He is not an official committer yet, but I very much welcome his support! And a new developer requires me to set up… Continue reading XML Security Tools updates
XML Security Tools now builds on Hudson! One nice side effect is the update site support, which makes installations much easier for you. Simply add the URL to your update sites and you can receive every update easily. With special thanks to Dave Carver for the setup work.
I have released a new XML Security Tools build today. This release includes only some documentation updates which are available in the Eclipse wiki too (in the Documentation/ User Guide section).
JCrypTool is running for the Best RCP Application with the Eclipse Technology Awards again. The finalists will be announced on March 1st, the winner on EclipseCon 2010.
A new XML Security Tools build is available. This new integration build on the official Web Tools download page contains a complete English online help for the whole plug-in as well as several UI enhancements and different bug fixes. The German tutorials are completely up to date too.
A new XML Security Tools release is available for download. This release contains some minor UI enhancements in the XML Encryption Wizard which should make it easier to use. And I continued working on the documentation (a.k.a. online help) which now contains some parts of the XML Encryption Wizard too. As a reminder: all documentation… Continue reading New XML Security Tools release available
Extending the Eclipse help is simply writing html pages. And linking between those pages is easy as long as the pages all reside in the same plug-in. Cross plug-in references (linking from plug-in A help page to plug-in B help page) requires just a little bit more information in the link: <a href="PLUGINS_ROOT/plug-in-id/path/page.html">My other plug-in</a>… Continue reading Cross plug-in references in the Eclipse help
I moved from Actions to Commands lately for all XML Security Tools operations. Except some removed icons, the XML Security context menu doesn't look much different. So why all the work (or trouble)? Well, Commands are much cooler: clean separation of UI and business logic, and therefore reusable. Yes, it's possible to reuse Actions too,… Continue reading From Actions to Commands
Since I have updated to Snow Leopard lately I ran into the JVM 64 bit problem. SWT is simply not available for Mac OS X with 64 bit. This hit me when launching JCrypTool the first time after updating. The solution to fix this is to add -d32 as a VM argument for in the… Continue reading Running an Eclipse RCP on Mac OS X Snow Leopard
