Happy to announce Alpha2 build for Eclipse Neon M7.
Downloads available at JBoss Tools 4.4.0.Alpha2.
This version of JBoss Tools targets Eclipse Neon 4.6 (M7).
We recommend using the Eclipse 4.6 JEE Bundle since then you get most of the dependencies preinstalled.
Once you have installed Eclipse, you use our update site directly:
Note: Marketplace entry and Integration Stack tooling will become available from JBoss Central at a later date.
As always there is more than can be covered in a single blog but here are some highlights. You can see everything in the What’s New section for this release.
A new Dockerfile editor provides users with content assist on the commands (ADD, COPY, RUN, etc.) as well as a customizable syntax highlighting.
The New OpenShift Application wizard now supports builder images, on top of the existing template support:
The OpenShift Explorer now provides a
New > Resource menu, that lets you create new OpenShift resources from an existing file, similar to the
oc create -f some_resource.json command.
Resource files can be local (from File System or Workspace), or remote, by providing a URL.
It is now possible to scale pods up and down, from the Service context menu in the OpenShift Explorer, or the Deployments and Deployment Configuration context menus in the Properties view.
Scale > Up will spin up one more pod,
Scale > Down will remove one pod.
Scale > To… will open a pop-up dialog to let you set the amount of pods you want your OpenShift to spin up.
Node.js support now allows you to run and debug Node.js applications. Note: Node.js debugger is currently not available in JBoss Tools Target Platform and has to be installed directly from eclipse.org. It will be available in the next JBoss Tools version and will work OOTB in Developer Studio.
