As I mentioned in this earlier post, the 8.0.0.Beta2 version of JBoss Fuse Tooling is available. In this article I will cover another new and updated feature: validations. I will explain what was already available and what’s new which improves productivity.


In Fuse Camel Editor, the classic XML editor is used in the source tab. Consequently, we can rely on the Eclipse built-in validation of xml files against xsd. You just have to right-click on the source code, then Validate.

There was a limitation about blueprint, I let you check this issue report in case the validation doesn’t work for you in previous versions: FUSETOOLS-1653.

Improved and New

Fuse validation everywhere

Going further than the xsd validation, the Fuse validation validates some characteristics of the component URI. This validation reports Problem markers against the Camel Component. This kind of validation was already available through Properties view but there was no global vision of these issues.

You can now see markers in:

  • Project explorer

  • Camel Route Diagram

  • Tree nodes for Global configuration element

  • Source tab editor

  • Problems view

Jump from Problems view

When double-clicking on Fuse Validation error in Problems view, you are redirected to the correct Editor tab depending on which specific Camel element the error comes from.

For the xsd validation, you are redirected to the source editor.

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.

What is new ?

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.

Dockerfile Editor

A new Dockerfile editor provides users with content assist on the commands (ADD, COPY, RUN, etc.) as well as a customizable syntax highlighting.

Improved OpenShift 3 support

New support for builder images

The New OpenShift Application wizard now supports builder images, on top of the existing template support:

Create new resources

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.

Scaling pods

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.

Updated JavaScript Tools

Our team worked hard for last month on rebooting the JavaScript Development Tools (JSDT) project which is part of Eclipse Web Tools. You can install updated JavaScript tooling directly from eclipse.org or using JBoss Tools Target Platform.

JavaScript Tools now support EcmaScript 2015. No false positive validation errors any more. Performance has been improved dramatically.

ES6 features on Editor

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.

Here is a short video which demonstrates new features and enhancements of JSDT 2.0 release:

Next steps

While we wait for feedback on Alpha2, we are already working on the next JBoss Tools release for Eclipse Neon.
