RapidClipse (the visual Eclipse) is a complete Eclipse distribution for Rapid Java and Cross-Platform-Development.
All of the essential tools and plugins for Java development are already preinstalled, preconfigured and optimally matched to each other, e.g. Java SE, JPA, JBoss Hibernate tools, Maven, GIT, Vaadin, RapidClipse IDE tools, RapidClipse Framework. No more annoying and time-consuming Eclipse configurations. Just install & get started.
RapidClipse provides a HTML5 GUI builder based on Vaadin, improved Hibernate tools, cross-platform-deployment tools for deploying web, mobile and classic Java desktop apps as well as a one click Java Cloud deployment based on Amazon Webservices.
The integrated RapidClipse Framework provides a Hibernate databinding, fully Hibernate entity lifecycle management, concepts for authentication and authorization, internationalization, UI persistence, mobile-kit for creating IoT solutions and much more. The framework bases on the Java Standard Edition and is released as open source under AGPL. The license model is similar to the OpenJDK.
