Castor Plug-in for Eclipse v2.0.0 released

The second incarnation of the plug-in is built on Eclipse 3.0 and wraps the Castor Source Generator as an External Tool. It provides a launch configuration dialog with a GUI for Castor's command-line options. The generator is then launched as an external Java process. Castor runtime libraries are packaged in an independent, self-contained plug-in (org.exolab.castor), with a Java classpath variable (CASTOR) pointing to their location. Additional features are planned for future releases. To download, please visit .
