A JBoss Project
Red Hat

Latest posts

The Developer Experience and Tooling group, of which JBoss Tools team is part, have a set of job openings available. We are looking to continue improving the usability for developers around Eclipse and around the Red Hat product line, including JBoss Middleware.

Topics range from Java to JavaScript, application servers to containers, source code tinkering to full blown CI/CD setups.

If you are into making developers life easier and like to be able to get involved in many different technologies and get them to work great together then do apply for one of the current listings.

You can also ping me (manderse@redhat.com) for questions.

The current list of openings are:

Note: the job postings do list a specific location, but for the right candidate we are happy to consider many locations worldwide (anywhere there is a Red Hat office), as well as working from home.

Have fun!

JBoss Tools team is so lucky to have a great QE team who assist in testing and verifying the Eclipse plugin stack continues to function as expected. In that process they have over the years been putting together a eclipse (SWT) testing library called RedDeer.

This RedDeer project released version 0.8 just recently.

RedDeer provides various utility testing, junit and SWTBot extensions and some quite unique tools specifically liked by QE to find errors/issues during their Eclipse testing.

We are planning on contributing this to Eclipse.org in the future, but would like to get early feedback on it.

Here is what Jiri Peterka recently wrote about it in his announcement on RedDeer:

Today, version 0.8.0 was released and RedDeer is again a step closer to version 1.0. RedDeer 0.8 supports Eclipse Mars (EE). This version is mainly about architecture improvements, related re-factoring and lot of bug fixes. In terms of these changes lots of underlying functionality went into o.j.r.common and mainly to o.j.r.core plugin. This helped us to keep architecture cleaner and to avoid cross dependency issues we have faced. Still you can also find multiple API and tooling features and enhancements in this release, for example:

When you start writing test plugin you can also use org.jboss.reddeer.go as an aggregate plug-in for a start in your MANIFEST.MF instead of thinking what set of the individual plugins is right for you.

Besides that, many (~70) bug fixes and other issues (~180 in total) were resolved. Thanks to all who helped again to push RedDeer project forward.

That’s it. Enjoy your testing with new RedDeer.
