Exciting New Eclipse Plug-ins in Fedora

Two exciting new plug-ins are now available in Fedora, a TestNG integration plug-in and the PHP Development Tools (PDT) plug-in.

The TestNG plug-in offers integration for Java projects using TestNG as an alternative to the Junit testing framework. It allows authoring, running and debugging TestNG tests in a similar way to the way you can with Junit tests.

TestNG Action Shot

Read more about the TestNG plug-in at the project website. It is available for Fedora 20 and above and may be installed with the following command:

$ sudo yum install eclipse-testng

The PHP Development Tools (PDT) plug-in attempts to provide a complete PHP IDE. I am not a PHP programmer so I can't tell you much about it, but at over two hundred thousand downloads from eclipse.org for this version alone, it seems pretty popular. It was added to Fedora as a maintainable replacement for the retired PHPEclipse plug-in, so if you were using that in the past please give this a try.

PDT Action Shot

Read more about it on the project website. PDT is also available for Fedora 20 and above and may be installed with the following command:

$ sudo yum install eclipse-pdt

Happy hacking!
