From developing to deploying on OpenShift 2, JBoss Tools provides you with a fully fledged environment for your project and aligns with the standard workflows within Eclipse. Using the tooling, you can create and configure your remote container, deploy your application, stream remote logs into your local console, access your data and remotely debug the running application. Creating a new OpenShift 2 Application along into a new or an existing Eclipse Project, or importing an existing OpenShift 2 Application into a new or an existing project, the Application Wizard supports all the combinations.
JBoss Tools presents a TechPreview version or the OpenShift 3 tooling for Eclipse. Installable from JBoss Central, it will allow you to connect to OpenShift 3 servers using OAuth or Basic authentication, manage your OpenShit 3 Projects, deploy new applications in the Cloud, using pre-defined (or your own) templates, or even Docker images. You will be able to import existing applications in your workspace, monitor them via remote log streaming directly into your local console, or enable Port-Forwarding and access their data as if it was local.
The OpenShift Explorer View lets you connect to OpenShift 2 or 3 instances, create new applications, manage domains or projects, execute action such as Port-Forwarding and Tail Files (Log Streaming). Specific actions are available, depending on the version of the OpenShift instance you’re connected to. For OpenShift 2 connections, you can configure cartridges, for OpenShift 3, you can access Pods, Routes, Services and deploy Docker images.
OpenShift 3 is capable of accessing remote Git repositories. You can easily install Webhook build triggers to your GitHub or your company’s Git repository, as long as OpenShift can access it. Redeploying your application is as simple as pushing your changes to your canonical Git repository, a new build will automatically be triggered.
