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 (Neon) but we recommend using the latest Eclipse 4.6 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.
Our main focus for this release was on adoption of Eclipse Neon, improvements for container based development and bug fixing. Eclipse Neon itself has a lot of new cool stuff but let me highlight just a few updates in both Eclipse Neon and JBoss Tools plugins that I think are worth mentioning.
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.
The 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 Connection wizard supports setting a Docker registry URL in the advanced properties section. This allows you to push docker images to the given Docker registry via the Deploy Docker Image wizard, right before actually creating the OpenShift resources. The URL is automatically added if the connection has been created by the CDK server adapter.
The New OpenShift Application wizard now supports builder images, on top of the existing template support.
Compared to regular templates, with the builder image-based workflow, users will be able to define:
git source url
exposed service ports and routes
The OpenShift Explorer 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.
Red Hat Central now lists quickstarts targeting the newly released Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application 7.0 server.
