JBoss Tools Integration Stack
Since JBoss Tools 4.3.0 we require Java 8 for the installation and use of all JBoss Tools, including the Integration Stack tooling. We still support developing and running applications using older Java runtimes. See more in Beta1 blog.

JBoss Tools Integration Stack 4.3.0.Beta1 / JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 9.0.0.Beta1

Note: All of the Integration Stack components are Early Access. See the installation section below for instructions.

What’s an Integration Stack?

The Integration Stack for JBoss Developer Studio is a set of features and plugins for Eclipse that further enhances the IDE development functionality provided by JBoss Developer Studio in support of the following frameworks:

JBoss Fuse Development

  • Fuse Tooling - JBoss Fuse Development provides tooling for Red Hat JBoss Fuse, specifically for integrating and developing software components that work with Apache ServiceMix, ActiveMQ and Camel. It features the latest versions of the Fuse Data Transformation tooling, SwitchYard and access to the Fuse SAP Tool Suite.

  • SwitchYard - A lightweight service delivery framework providing full lifecycle support for developing, deploying, and managing service-oriented applications.

JBoss Business Process and Rules Development

JBoss Business Process and Rules Development plug-ins provide design, debug and testing tooling for developing business processes for Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite.

  • BPEL Designer - Orchestrating your business processes.

  • BPMN2 Modeler - A graphical modeling tool which allows creation and editing of Business Process Modeling Notation diagrams using graphiti.

  • Drools - A Business Logic integration Platform which provides a unified and integrated platform for Rules, Workflow and Event Processing including KIE.

  • jBPM6 - A flexible Business Process Management (BPM) suite.

JBoss Data Virtualization Development

JBoss Data Virtualization Development plug-ins provide a graphical interface to manage various aspects of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization instances, including the ability to design virtual databases and interact with associated governance repositories.

  • Modeshape - A distributed, hierarchical, transactional and consistent data store with support for queries, full-text search, events, versioning, references, and flexible and dynamic schemas. It is very fast, highly available, extremely scalable, and it is 100% open source.

  • Teiid Designer - A visual tool that enables rapid, model-driven definition, integration, management and testing of data services without programming using the Teiid runtime framework.

JBoss Integration and SOA Development

JBoss Integration and SOA Development plug-ins provide tooling for developing, configuring and deploying BRMS, SwitchYard and Fuse applications to Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works, Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Fuse Fabric containers, Apache ServiceMix, and Apache Karaf instances.

  • All of the Business Process and Rules Development plugins, plus…​

  • Fuse Apache Camel Tooling - A graphical tool for integrating software components that works with Apache ServiceMix, Apache ActiveMQ, Apache Camel and the FuseSource distributions.

  • SwitchYard - A lightweight service delivery framework providing full lifecycle support for developing, deploying, and managing service-oriented applications.

SOA 5.x Development

  • JBoss ESB - An enterprise service bus for connecting enterprise applications and services.

  • jBPM3 - A flexible Business Process Management (BPM) Suite - JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.x compatible version.

All of these components have been verified to work with the same dependencies as JBoss Tools 4.3 and Developer Studio 9.
