Eclipse Plug-in for eBay

Thursday, May 5th, 2005

The new Developers Program homepage is up! We successfully switched to Plone as a content management system. Besides re-doing and face lifting some of the pages we also added great new content.

One really exiting addition to the site is the Eclipse Plug-in for eBay I wrote. It brings My eBay to your Eclipse IDE, showing the items you are bidding on, watching and selling. It is open source and distributed under the General Public License. Let me know if you have any comments. I also added a Java / SOAP FetchToken sample that shows how a client application does the authentication process for client application.

And to get you all the information you always wanted to know about the eBay Developers Program we updated our FAQ section.

Enjoy!

PayPal inline hockey team on a winning streak

Here is the hockey update: As I mentioned before, I joined the PayPal roller hockey team this season. After a four games winning streak we are currently on second place and have two more games to play in the regular season. To make the play-offs we need one more point in 2 games.

Go Team!

Update: So that didn’t work out that well… Let\’s wait and see how the other teams did.
