What’s an Integration Stack?

Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack is a set of Eclipse-based development tools. It further enhances the IDE functionality provided by JBoss Developer Studio, with plug-ins specifically for use when developing for other Red Hat JBoss products. It’s where DataVirt Tooling, SOA tooling and BRMS tooling are aggregated. The following frameworks are supported:

JBoss Business Process and Rules Development

JBoss Business Process and Rules Development plug-ins provide design, debug and testing tooling for developing business processes for Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite.

  • BPEL Designer - Orchestrating your business processes.

  • BPMN2 Modeler - A graphical modeling tool which allows creation and editing of Business Process Modeling Notation diagrams using graphiti.

  • Drools - A Business Logic integration Platform which provides a unified and integrated platform for Rules, Workflow and Event Processing including KIE.

  • jBPM - A flexible Business Process Management (BPM) suite.

JBoss Data Virtualization Development

JBoss Data Virtualization Development plug-ins provide a graphical interface to manage various aspects of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization instances, including the ability to design virtual databases and interact with associated governance repositories.

  • Teiid Designer - A visual tool that enables rapid, model-driven definition, integration, management and testing of data services without programming using the Teiid runtime framework.

JBoss Integration and SOA Development

JBoss Integration and SOA Development plug-ins provide tooling for developing, configuring and deploying BRMS and SwitchYard to Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Fuse Fabric containers.

  • All of the Business Process and Rules Development plugins plus SwitchYard. Switchyard is deprecated as of this release.

  • Fuse Tooling has moved out of the Integration Stack to be a core part of JBoss Tools and Developer Studio.

Happy to announce 4.5.3.AM1 (Developer Milestone 1) build for Eclipse Oxygen.2.

Downloads available at JBoss Tools 4.5.3 AM1.

What is New?

Full info is at this page. Some highlights are below.

OpenShift

Minishift Server Adapter

A new server adapter has been added to support upstream Minishift. While the server adapter itself has limited functionality, it is able to start and stop the Minishift virtual machine via its minishift binary. From the Servers view, click New and then type minishift, that will bring up a command to setup and/or launch the Minishift server adapter.

All you have to do is set the location of the minishift binary file, the type of virtualization hypervisor and an optional Minishift profile name.

Once you’re finished, a new Minishift Server adapter will then be created and visible in the Servers view.

Once the server is started, Docker and OpenShift connections should appear in their respective views, allowing the user to quickly create a new Openshift application and begin developing their AwesomeApp in a highly-replicatable environment.

Fuse Tooling

New shortcuts in Fuse Integration perspective

Shortcuts for the Java, Launch, and Debug perspectives and basic navigation operations are now provided within the Fuse Integration perspective.

The result is a set of buttons in the Toolbar:

New Toolbar action

All of the associated keyboard shortcuts are also available, such as Ctrl+Shift+T to open a Java Type.

Performance improvement: Loading Advanced tab for Camel Endpoints

The loading time of the "Advanced" tab in the Properties view for Camel Endpoints is greatly improved.

Advanced Tab in Properties view

Previously, in the case of Camel Components that have a lot of parameters, it took several seconds to load the Advanced tab. For example, for the File component, it would take ~3.5s. It now takes ~350ms. The load time has been reduced by a factor of 10. (See this interesting article on response time)

If you notice other places showing slow performance, you can file a report by using the Fuse Tooling issue tracker. The Fuse Tooling team really appreciates your help. Your feedback contributes to our development priorities and improves the Fuse Tooling user experience.

Enjoy!
