Yes, we need a statement from IBM regarding the the Java tooling for Domino within Eclipse / Domino Designer 8.5 / 9.0 ! We need better Domino Java developemt tools for Agents, Web Services, etc.

I was so disappointed when I created a Java library and Java Agent expecting the Eclipse debugging tools and all I got was Notes archaic C tool. I hope this is only because we are in public beta 1 and not a sign of things to come. You are inside Eclipse, how much of a stretch does it take since these tools (java and javascript) are available.

On the positive side, I like the custom components, Dojo and Javascript. Xpages looks promising but will have to it in action.

It would be very nice if this page contained a section where people could get either hard links, or updated feeds of articles and info on XPages as they are still very new and not well documented or explained.

I think it would also be useful to have a debugging tool within Designer that would allow you to enter LotusScript commands and watch variables that you decide rather than being given all variables and have to search through them.

Something like the Script Debugger on IE would be really useful, in my opinion.

What is really needed is Agent development incl. Debugging from within Eclipse, using proper Eclipse Java tooling and steppeing through the Agents in Debug mode.

The same applies to Web Service programming. We need to be able to programm Web Services on the Domino databases and be able to step through the service implementation using proper Java debugging tools.
