    APS Plug-in for Eclipse is a tool for software vendors to package their SaaS/cloud applications with Application Packaging Standard (APS). The plug-in provides handy and friendly interface to reflect application objects in standard metadata, ensuring their integrity. APS versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 are supported.

    APS technology is supported by Parallels Automation, Parallels Plesk / Small Business Panels and several independent hosting platforms.

    New Features:

    * Deploying APS package to Parallels Operations Automation

    You can install your APS package directly to Parallels Operation Automation hosting infrastructure by single click. APS plug-in uploads APS package to POA and installs APS application automatically.

    * Publication of APS package

    From today, the plug-in supports automatic uploading of APS package in APS-compatible application catalogs. As direct result, it allows you to submit APS package for certification and publication in official APS Catalog right from Eclipse.

    * APS package signing

    You can sign APS package content by your certificate in Personal Information Exchange Syntax Standard (PKCS#12) format. Plug-in can also sign APS package after each build automatically.

    * Quick Fix for missed metadata

    When getting a error that APS package is invalid due to wrong metadata, APS plug-in proposes several ways to fix the error and navigates you to the proper field in APS Metadata File Editor.

    * Tips for APS Metadata File Editor

    Pop-up screen tips are now available for all elements of APS Metadata File Editor. Context help is also extended and improved.

    * Support of Unix archives for external application sources

    You can link APS project with external application sources in format of Unix tarballs, archived by gzip or bzip compression utilities.
