As I mentioned in an earlier post, the 8.0.0.Beta2 version of JBoss Fuse Tooling is now available. Apart from the diagram tooling rework, there is yet another new, awaited feature. You can find it in the new “Configurations” editor — designed to manipulate global configurations, i.e. elements defined at the Camel context scope.

A new editor tab is now available to manipulate global configurations.

newConfigurationTab

It currently allows to declare global Endpoints and global Data Formats.

For instance when adding a new Data Format, a dialog allows you to select a specific data format:

globalDataFormat

Then you will be able to edit it from the classic Properties view:

globalDataFormatEditionFromProperties

We have a lot of other global elements that we would like to support, please vote on our JIRA (and/or create your own Feature Request). It will help us to prioritize global configuration element support. You can find already filed JIRA ticket here.

The JBoss Fuse Tooling has been reworked to provide a brighter Look’n’feel and a nice looking automatic layout. The work is still in progress but already available in beta version with the new JBoss Tool Studio version. Please install the JBoss Tools Studio that you can download from here. And then follow the steps in this screenshot to have access to JBoss Fuse Tooling 8.0 Beta 2.

HowToInstall

Ok, now let’s see what’s new from a Diagram point view!

New layout and Look’n’Feel

It provides modern colors. Some of them are dynamic depending on the consumer/producer role.

The new default layout is vertical - the horizontal is still available from Preferences - providing more information in a more compact way.

Icons for each component are currently created. It helps to distinguish at first sight which kind of component it is without having to read the scheme of the URI.

An image is worth a thousands words, especially here, so have a look:

Multiple routes support

Previously, the editor was supporting editing a single route per Camel file. It is now possible to develop several Camel routes in the same file with the JBoss Fuse Tooling.

Palette simplification

The Palette has been reworked too. The component list has been shortened to present the most common components only. You can use a search field to filter on the remaining ones. All the other components are still available using the "Generic" tool palette, it opens a dialog where you will be able to search for a specific component and have default filters/presentations.

If you feel that the component list of the palette must be configurable, you can vote on the corresponding feature request.

Validation decorator

The Fuse Validation issues are now displayed on the diagram:
