Java Power Tools 2.7.0
Original Release Note for January 24, 2008 (2.7.0):
The most important innovation in JPT 2.7.0 is the ability to
use the Java Power Framework in both applications as
in the past with
JPF and now in applets with
JPFApplet. In addition, the core reflection
technology has been implemented in a public class
JPFPane that may be used to investigate the
behavior of suitable methods defined for any class even the
library classes supplied by Java.
TileBox has been changed so that it may
be selected with the mouse even it is has no
Paintable object within it. This convention
makes it easier to use
TileBox is simple
interactive applications and games.
Many of the changes to JPT in Fall 2007 were designed to prepare for the improvements to the Java Power Framework. It is therefore worthwhile to review the release notes on the JPT 2.6.0 site.
Release Note for January 25, 2008 (2.7.0a):
In the initial posting of January 24, 2008 one applet failed due to the fact
that JPT used
getDeclaredMethods in class
It turns out that even asking for all declared methods causes a Java
security exception in an applet deployed in a browser. Why this should be so
is something of a puzzle since you have not yet called any methods. It is
also the case that the same code works locally in AppletViewer so as a test
program AppletViewer cannot be trusted.
JPFPane have been modified
to work around this security issue. Now the method
Class is used instead.
Note that Eclipse 3.3 is so similar to Eclipse 3.2 as far as the settings shown at the above link that we have not created a new version of the screen snapshots for Eclipse 3.3.
