CordovaSim is moved to the simulation of Cordova 3 projects. Now it is able to simulate the environment of Cordova 3.1, multiple version support is in our plans for JBoss Tools 4.2.0.

BrowserSim and CordovaSim got touch events simulation. It gives the ability to simulate touchstart, touchend and touchmove events as if the device is touched with a finger.
The simulation is disabled by default. You should use the context menu to enable it:

Now CordovaSim is able to simulate the inAppBrowser API. The InAppBrowser is a web browser view that displays when calling window.open(). The InAppBrowser window behaves like a standard web browser, and cannot access Cordova APIs.

Now CordovaSim has ChildBrowser plugin support. ChildBrowser plugin is considered to be deprecated (InAppBrowser is an up-to-date substitution), nevertheless it’s one of the most popular plugins overall.

Both Oracle JDK and OpenJDK 1.7 update 40 have a known issue when creating temporary files (see http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=8025128 and https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8025128), preventing JBoss Central from fetching informations and remote project examples.
We fixed JBoss Central to work around this issue but you may still encounter difficulties with other IDE tools (m2e, p2, subclipse…). If this is the case, use an alternative version of Java developer kit 1.7 before or after update 40 (fixed in 1.8 and set to be included in 1.7 update 45).

This release of JBoss Tools LiveReload fixes 2 issues reported and fixed with the help of a community member, Pei-Tang Huang:
When using LiveReload embedded proxy to preview local files with non UTF-8 characters (such as CJK characters), the returned content would contain '?' characters instead of the expected ones. From now, the embedded LiveReload proxy relies on the Eclipse settings applied on the file (or at the project or workspace level) to read the content.
As a side effect, when accessing workspace files with special characters, the value of the "Content-Length" header in the HTTP response was not correctly calculated and Chrome would simply not process the response body, eventually leaving the user with a blank page.
This release of JBoss Tools LiveReload brings support for Asciidoc files (.adoc and .asciidoc). Using a basic Text Editor in combination with the LiveReload tooling and the Asciidoctor.js Chrome extension and FireFox add-on, users will now have instant reload of their documentation in their browser !

You can create a new application with your very own source code since JBoss Tools 4.0.
use your own source code
There are openshift quickstarts that require long timeouts because the size of the source code being checked out is very large. Another frequent requirement is that embedded (add-on) cartridges have to be present when the application is created. Adding the cartridges in a 2nd step wont help; the initial application build fails. It was not possible, for example, to create the OpenShift wordpress quickstart at https://github.com/openshift/wordpress-example within JBoss Tools. The update to 4.1.1.Alpha1 fixed this.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-15261
The openshift-java-client now allows you to provide embeddable cartridges when you create an application. Previously these could only get added once the application was ready. This might be required when you use your own application template source.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-15262
The openshift-java-client now allows you to use a specific timeout in your operation. This is useful if you know that it takes much longer to create your application with your custom source than it takes for the default. Previously you had to increase the global timeout.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-14366
When looking at the log files in your OpenShift application the tooling allows you to provide your very own settings. In Alpha2 we now store these personalized options on a per-application basis. This frees you from re-providing them.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-15389
OpenShift now allows you to have several domains. You may own multiple domains if you are on Silver Plan. But it’s also possible to get access to other peoples domains. JBoss Tools now supports these setups and lets you choose the domain you’re creating an application for.
The OpenShift Explorer now shows a domain-node.
And we offer you a wizard to create, rename and delete your domains.

Environment varibales in OpenShift allow you to easily customize your application at runtime. JBoss Tools allows you to provide environment variables when creating an application.
Existing applications may also have their environment variables modified.

In Beta1 we now allow you to inspect the log files on all gears of a scalable application. When executing "Tail Files…" we’ll show you the number of gears that an application is running on.
We’ll then open a separate console for each of them and allow you to inspect all logs.

There is now a preference available to set the timeout used when waiting for OpenShift requests to complete. We’re using a default of 120 seconds (2 minutes) if no preference value (0) is provided. You can try raise this value if you are getting time out errors when using OpenShift.

Web Services Tools
A few bugs were fixed in the JAX-RS Tooling for this version of the Web Services component. In particular:
If a Web application contained 2 JAX-RS Application definition (in Java classes and/or as a declaration in the deployment descriptor), a warning on both elements would be set. But if the user removed one of those elements to fix the problem, the warning on the other element would remain. This is now fixed, the warning on the remaining is also removed.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-12860
When refactoring an annotation (such as a custom CDI qualifier), the JAX-RS Tooling would complain if the @Target was incorrect, even though the annotation was not related to JAX-RS. This is now fixed, the JAX-RS tooling checks that an @HttpMethod meta-annotation is set on the user’s annotation to validate it.
Related JIRA: JBIDE-15508
If a Web application contained 2 JAX-RS Application definition (in Java classes and/or as a declaration in the deployment descriptor), there would be 2 warnings on each of those elements. This is now fixed, and only 1 warning will appear on each element.
