Eclipse is an open-source community project that is focused on building an extensible development platform: a suite of software tools that assist in the writing of software. Primarily it is used as a Java integrated development environment (IDE) but has been adapted for many other languages including python, C, C++, and FORTRAN.
The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an open-source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing and visualization. VTK consists of a C++ class library and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python.
This is again a small JMS configuration stuff we have to do in JBoss 5. There is considerable difference in doing it in JBoss 5 compared to JBoss 4 and don’t expect our old configuration to work well with JBoss 5 without any change. In JBoss 5 they are using JBoss Messaging in place of JBoss MQ. You can read a detailed post on migrating from JBoss 4 to JBoss 5 here.
Upgrading JBoss 4 to JBoss 5 with Java 5 to Java 6
The information presented here comes from an effort to upgrade a Java enterprise application to the most current versions of all of its parts; primarily to get onto Java 6. Its starting system specifications were the following:
bnd is the Swiss army knife of OSGi, it is used for creating and working with OSGi bundles. Its primary goal is take the pain out of developing bundles. With OSGi you are forced to provide additional metadata in the JAR's manifest to verify the consistency of your "class path". This metadata must be closely aligned with the class files in the bundle and the policies that a company has about versioning. Maintaining this metdata is an error prone chore because many aspects are redundant.
