Happy to announce 4.4.4.AM1 (Developer Milestone 1) build for Eclipse Neon.2.

Downloads available at JBoss Tools 4.4.4 AM1.

What is New?

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

OpenShift 3

Although our main focus is bug fixes, we continue to work on providing better experience for container based development in JBoss Tools and Developer Studio. Let’s go through a few interesting updates here and you can find more details on the What’s New page.

OpenShift Server Adapter enhanced flexibility

OpenShift server adapter is a great tool that allows developers to synchronize local changes in the Eclipse workspace with running pods in the OpenShift cluster. It also allows you to remote debug those pods when the server adapter is launched in Debug mode. The supported stacks are Java and NodeJS.

As pods are ephemeral OpenShift resources, the server adapter definition was based on an OpenShift service resource and the pods are then dynamically computed from the service selector.

This has a major drawback as it allows to use this feature only for pods that are part of a service, which may be logical for Web based applications as a route (and thus a service) is required in order to access the application.

So, it is now possible to create a server adapter from the following OpenShift resources:

  • service (as before)

  • deployment config

  • replication controller

  • pod

If a server adapter is created from a pod, it will be created from the associated OpenShift resource, in the preferred order:

  • service

  • deployment config

  • replication controller

As the OpenShift explorer used to display OpenShift resources that were linked to a service, it has been enhanced as well. It now displays resources linked to a deployment config or replication controller. Here is an example of a deployment with no service ie a deployment config:

server adapter enhanced

So, as an OpenShift server adapter can be created from different kind of resources, the kind of associated resource is displayed when creating the OpenShift server adapter:

server adapter enhanced1

Once created, the kind of OpenShift resource adapter is also displayed in the Servers view:

server adapter enhanced2

This information is also available from the server editor:

API Change in JMX UI’s New Connection Wizard

While hardly something most users will care about, extenders may need to be aware that the API for adding connection types to the 'New JMX Connection' wizard in the 'JMX Navigator' has changed. Specifically, the 'org.jboss.tools.jmx.ui.providerUI' extension point has been changed. While previously having a child element called 'wizardPage', it now requires a 'wizardFragment'.

A 'wizardFragment' is part of the 'TaskWizard' framework first used in WTP’s ServerTools, which has, for a many years, been used throughout JBossTools. This framework allows wizard workflows where the set of pages to be displayed can change based on what selections are made on previous pages.

This change was made as a direct result of a bug caused by the addition of the Jolokia connection type in which some standard workflows could no longer be completed.

This change only affects adopters and extenders, and should have no noticable change for the user, other than that the below bug has been fixed.

Forge Tools

Forge Runtime updated to 3.6.0.Final

JBoss Tools 4.4.3 and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 10.3 for Eclipse Neon.2 are here waiting for you. Check it out!

devstudio10

Installation

JBoss Developer Studio comes with everything pre-bundled in its installer. Simply download it from our JBoss Products page and run it like this:

java -jar jboss-devstudio-<installername>.jar

JBoss Tools or Bring-Your-Own-Eclipse (BYOE) JBoss Developer Studio require a bit more:

This release requires at least Eclipse 4.6.2 (Neon.2) but we recommend using the latest Eclipse 4.6.2 Neon JEE Bundle since then you get most of the dependencies preinstalled.

Once you have installed Eclipse, you can either find us on the Eclipse Marketplace under "JBoss Tools" or "Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio".

For JBoss Tools, you can also use our update site directly.

What is new?

Our main focus for this release was improvements for container based development and bug fixing.

Improved OpenShift 3 and Docker Tools

We continue to work on providing better experience for container based development in JBoss Tools and Developer Studio. Let’s go through a few interesting updates here.

Scaling from pod resources

When an application is being deployed to Openshift, it was possible to scale the pod resources from the service resource.

OpenShift Container Platform 3.4 support

OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 3.4 has been announced by Red Hat. JBossTools 4.4.3 has been validated against OCP 3.4.

CDK 3 Beta Server Adapter

A new server adapter has been added to support the next generation of CDK 3. This is Tech Preview in this release as CDK 3 is Beta. While the server adapter itself has limited functionality, it is able to start and stop the CDK virtual machine via its minishift binary. Simply hit Ctrl+3 (Cmd+3 on OSX) and type CDK, that will bring up a command to setup and/or launch the CDK server adapter. You should see the old CDK 2 server adapter along with the new CDK 3 one (labeled Red Hat Container Development Kit 3 (Tech Preview) ).

cdk3 server adapter

All you have to do is set the credentials for your Red Hat account and the location of the CDK’s minishift binary file and the type of virtualization hypervisor.

cdk3 server adapter1

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

cdk3 server adapter2

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.

cdk3 server adapter3
cdk3 server adapter4
This is Tech Preview. The implementation is subject to change, may not work with next releases of CDK 3 and testing has been limited.

We are happy to announce the first release of the Windup Eclipse Plugin. It is available now through JBoss Central, and from our update site at http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/neon/stable/updates/windup/composite/.

What’s Windup?

Windup is a command line tool used to aid the process of migrating Java applications. Here’s a few examples:

  • You want to move your application from one application server to another, for example:

    • WebLogic to EAP

    • WebSphere to EAP

  • You want to upgrade from one version of a technology to another, for example:

    • Hibernate 3 to Hibernate 4

    • EAP 6 to EAP 7

  • You want to change technologies, for example:

    • Seam 2 UI controls to pure JSF 2 UI Controls

And here’s an example of how you’d run Windup using the CLI:

$ ./windup --input /path/to/jee-example-app-1.0.0.ear --output /path/to/output --source weblogic --target eap:7

The output of running Windup from the command line is an HTML report, which can then be used to help analyze how much effort the migration will take, as well as provide assistance with solving the individual problems.

What do the Windup Eclipse plugins do?

As previously mentioned, the output of running Windup from the command line is an HTML report, which is not very useful for the engineer responsible for making the changes in the code.

That’s where the Eclipse plugins come into play. Once you’ve run Windup from within the IDE, all the source files needing to be changed will be automatically marked, and can be easily organized, searched, and in many cases, fixed using quick fixes.

Let me give you a quick walkthrough of some of the key components. You can find more detailed information here.

Windup Perspective

We’ve created a dedicated perspective containing all the the views necessary to use Windup.

Windup Perspective

Run Configuration Dialog

Think of this as a GUI for your command line arguments. Instead of needing to dig deep into Windup documentation, and then having to tediously type paths, and other various arguments, this dialog simplifies the process of telling Windup what to analyze and how.

Run Configuration

Issue Explorer View

The Issue Explorer gets populated with all the migration issues.

Issue Explorer



You can customize how the issues are organized.

Issue Explorer Grouping



The context menu is dynamic, and will vary per issue.

Issue Explorer Context Menu



Some issues have quick fixes available. Quick fixes can be previewed prior to being applied.

Quick Fix Preview

Issue Details View

The Issue Details View provides more detailed information about migration issues, for example, hints on how to fix them, external documentation that might help with choosing the best solutions, etc.

Issue Details

Report View

You may need to refer back to the generated HTML report, and for that reason, we make it readily available here.

Demo

Here is a short video which demonstrates the basic usage:

Conclusion

We are trying our best to make the Windup tooling as good as possible. Users' feedback is what we are seeking for now. We are looking forward to hearing your comments / remarks!

Have fun!

Happy to announce 4.4.3.AM2 (Developer Milestone 2) build for Eclipse Neon.2.

Downloads available at JBoss Tools 4.4.3 AM2.

What is New?

OpenShift 3

Although our main focus is bug fixes, we continue to work on providing better experience for container based development in JBoss Tools and Developer Studio. Let’s go through a few interesting updates here and you can find more details on the What’s New page.

OpenShift Container Platform 3.4 support

OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 3.4 has been announced by Red Hat. JBossTools 4.4.3.AM2 has been validated against OCP 3.4.

If you are using JBossTools together with the Container Development Toolkit (CDK), the latest version is using OCP 3.3 by default. If you are using CDK 2.3, there is a way to upgrade to OCP 3.4. Edit the Vagrantfile, locate the line with IMAGE_TAG="" and replace by IMAGE_TAG="v3.4.1.2-2". then restart the CDK VM (vagrant halt; vagrant up).

It seems there are some upgrade problems between OCP 3.3 and OCP 3.4 so you may experience deploy errors. We recommand that you destroy the CDK VM (vagrant destroy) before upgrading to OCP.

Enjoy!

Improved OpenShift 3 and Docker Tools

We continue to work on providing better experience for container based development in JBoss Tools and Developer Studio. Let’s go through a few interesting updates here.

Node.js Debugger

Now it is possible to debug Node.js applications deployed to Openshift. All you need to do is creating a Server Adapter for the app and running it in the Debug mode. After that a new V8 debug session will be created:

v8 debug console

Put some breakpoints in the code and start debugging!

node js debugger

Changing the code during the debug session is also supported - just save the file and new changes will be applied automatically. Here is a short demo video which describes the debugging process in action:

Step by step instructions are available here.

Cluster common namespace

When looking for Openshift resources (builder images, templates), a common namespace is browsed. Earlier hardcoded openshift namespace is now configurable with default value openshift.

It can be accessed and modified through the connection extended properties:

Connection extended properties

User controlled hostname when creating routes

When an application is being deployed to Openshift, a route is optionally created if required by the user. Openshift/CDK used to create an xip.io based hostname. User can now set its own hostname. This allows for both changing the DNS to local IP provider (nip.io) or using you own enterprise DNS naming strategy.

The hostname can be accessed from the Services and Routing Settings page when deploying an application:

wizard new application hostname

Create routes targetting a specific service port

When an application is being deployed to Openshift, a route is optionally created if required by the user. It is now possible to target a specific port (exposed by a to be created service). When the ports are being displayed, it is now possible to select one of them to be used by the route. By default, the first port is selected.

The route port can be accessed from the Services and Routing Settings page when deploying an application:

wizard new application route port

CDK server using native terminal for better user interactions

The CDK server adapter now uses a native terminal that allows better interaction with the user. In the case credentials are not passed in the Vagrant environment, the user will be asked just as with the standard Vagrant CLI and in case of registration failures, retries will be performed.

First, make sure your CDK server adapter is configured not to pass credentials:

CDK editor

Then, start the CDK server adapter and a new terminal window will open, asking for registration:

Registration

If you answered y to the previous questions, then the terminal window will ask for username:

Username

Then the terminal window will ask for password:

Password

If the registration fails, then the terminal window will perform retries and ask again for username and password:

Password

Server Tools

QuickFixes now available in runtime detection

Runtime detection has been a feature of JBossTools for a long while, however, it would sometimes create runtime and server adapters with configuration errors without alerting the user. Now, the user will have an opportunity to execute quickfixes before completing the creation of their runtimes and servers.

JBIDE 15189 rt detect 1

To see this in action, we can first open up the runtime-detection preference page. We can see that our runtime-detection will automatically search three paths for valid runtimes of any type.

JBIDE 15189 rt detect 2

Once we click search, the runtime-detection’s search dialog appears, with results it has found. In this case, it has located an EAP 6.4 and an EAP 7.0 installation. However, we can see that both have errors. If we click on the error column for the discovered EAP 7.0, the error is expanded, and we see that we’re missing a valid / compatible JRE. To fix the issue, we should click on this item.

JBIDE 15189 rt detect 3

When we click on the problem for EAP 7, the new JRE dialog appears, allowing us to add a compatible JRE. The dialog helpfully informs us of what the restrictions are for this specific runtime. In this case, we’re asked to define a JRE with a minimum version of Java-8.

JBIDE 15189 rt detect 4

If we continue along with the process by locating and adding a Java 8 JRE, as shown above, and finish the dialog, we’ll see that all the errors will disappear for both runtimes. In this example, the EAP 6.4 required a JRE of Java 7 or higher. The addition of the Java 8 JRE fixed this issue as well.

JBIDE 15189 rt detect 5

Hopefully, this will help users preemptively discover and fix errors before being hit with surprising errors when trying to use the created server adapters.

Support for WildFly 10.1

The WildFly 10.0 Server adapter has been renamed to WildFly 10.x. It has been tested and verified to work for WildFly 10.1 installations.

Hibernate Tools

Hibernate Runtime Provider Updates

A number of additions and updates have been performed on the available Hibernate runtime providers.

New Hibernate 5.2 Runtime Provider

With final releases available in the Hibernate 5.2 stream, the time was right to make available a corresponding Hibernate 5.2 runtime provider. This runtime provider incorporates Hibernate Core version 5.2.2.Final and Hibernate Tools version 5.2.0.Beta1.

hibernate 5 2
Figure 1. Hibernate 5.2 is available
Other Runtime Provider Updates

The Hibernate 4.3 runtime provider now incorporates Hibernate Core version 4.3.11.Final and Hibernate Tools version 4.3.5.Final.

The Hibernate 5.0 runtime provider now incorporates Hibernate Core version 5.0.10.Final and Hibernate Tools version 5.0.2.Final.

The Hibernate 5.1 runtime provider now incorporates Hibernate Core version 5.1.1.Final and Hibernate Tools version 5.1.0.CR1.

Forge Tools

Added Install addon from the catalog command

From Forge 3.3.0.Final onwards it is now possible to query and install addons listed in the Forge addons page.

Freemarker

Freemarker 2.3.25

Freemarker library included in the Freemarker IDE was updated to latest available version 2.3.25.

flth / fltx file extensions added

The new flth and fltx extensions have been added and associated with Freemarker IDE. flth stands for HTML content whereas fltx stands for XML content.

Overhaul of the plugin template parser

The parser that FreeMarker IDE uses to extract IDE-centric information (needed for syntax highlighting, related tag highlighting, auto-completion, outline view, etc.) was overhauled. Several bugs were fixed, and support for the newer template language features were added. Also, the syntax highlighting is now more detailed inside expressions.

Fixed the issue when the (by default) yellow highlighting of the related FTL tags shift away from under the tag as you type.

Showing whitespace, block selection mode

The standard "Show whitespace characters" and "Toggle block selection mode" icons are now available when editing a template.

Improved automatic finishing of FreeMarker constructs

When you type <#, <@, ${, #{ and <#-- the freemarker editor now automatically closes them.

When a FreeMarker exception is printed to the console, the error position in it is a link that navigates to the error. This has worked long ago, but was broken for quite a while.

Fixed auto-indentation

When hitting enter, sometimes the new line haven’t inherited the indentation of the last line.

Updated the "database" used for auto completion

Auto completion now knows all directives and "built-ins" up to FreeMarker 2.3.25.

What is next?

Having JBoss Tools 4.4.2 and Developer Studio 10.2 out we are already working on the next maintenance release for Eclipse Neon.2.
