JBoss Tools 4.4 and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 10.0 for Eclipse Neon are here waiting for you. Check it out!

devstudio10

Installation

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.

http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/neon/stable/updates/

What is new?

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.

JavaScript Development Tools 2.0

Red Hat team along with other contributers have been working hard for the last months on restarting JavaScript Development Tools (JSDT) project for Eclipse Neon. The updated tooling includes EcmaScript 2015 support, JSON editor, Node.js, grunt, gulp, bower and npm tools.

Here is a short video which demonstrates new features and enhancements of JavaScript Tools:

Improved OpenShift 3 and Docker Tools

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.

Dockerfile Editor

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

Docker Editor

Deploy docker images to the CDK OpenShift registry

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.

deploy push docker image

New support for builder images

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

builder support

Compared to regular templates, with the builder image-based workflow, users will be able to define:

  • git source url

  • build triggers

  • environment variables

  • data volumes

  • replicas

  • exposed service ports and routes

Create new resources

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.

Scaling pods

It is 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 down

New EAP 7 quickstarts

Red Hat Central now lists quickstarts targeting the newly released Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application 7.0 server.

And more…​

You can find more noteworthy updates in on this page.

What is next?

Having JBoss Tools 4.4 and Developer Studio 10.0 out we are already working on the next maintenance release for Eclipse Neon.

Enjoy!

To celebrate the release of Eclipse Neon, the Eclipse Foundation produced a webinar series with a list of 7 of the Top New & Noteworthy Features that are integral to the Eclipse Neon Release.

Amongst those webinars, Ilya and Gorkem presented the Eclipse JavaScript Development Tools (JSDT) and I presented the Docker tooling.

JSDT Tooling

Description:

The Eclipse JavaScript Development Tools have reached a new level of features and usability with Eclipse Neon. Many things were implemented as part of the JSDT 2.0 release that is now available with Eclipse Neon. This webinar demonstrates the following new features:

  • Package managers (npm / bower)

  • Build systems (grunt / gulp)

  • Node.js Tools

  • ECMAScript 2015 (ES6) parser

The talk also features plans for the future of JavaScript development in Eclipse IDE.

The slides for the presentation are available here.

Docker Tooling

Description:

Docker is awesome, but how to use it well when doing development? In this talk you will get a quick introduction on how to use Docker effectively, especially for development from within Eclipse. We will show how the release of Eclipse Neon supports Docker to make it even more integrated into your day-to-day work from within your IDE. In particular, you’ll see how you can pull and run an image for a database, build a custom image for an application server, run it and deploy an application using data volume, exposed ports and container links. We will also take a look at some of the newest features, such as support for Docker Machine, TM Terminal integration, run configurations for containers, and a variety of other UI improvements.

The slides for the presentation are available here.

Other Webinars

Other webinars have also been recorded and are available on the Eclipse Neon Webinar Series on Youtube.

Enjoy !

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.

Existing

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.

validation-XSD

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

validationEverywhere validationOnXmlFile

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.

Installation

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:

http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/neon/development/updates/core/

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.

Docker Editor

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 resources wizard

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.

scale up down

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.

Node.js Debug

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.

Enjoy!

Alexey Kazakov

Note: This article has been posted also on Red Hat Developers Program blog

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the 8.0.0.Beta2 version of JBoss Fuse Tooling is now available. Apart from the diagram tooling rework, there is yet another new, awaited feature. You can find it in the new “Configurations” editor — designed to manipulate global configurations, i.e. elements defined at the Camel context scope.

A new editor tab is now available to manipulate global configurations.

newConfigurationTab

It currently allows to declare global Endpoints and global Data Formats.

availableGlobalConfiguration

For instance when adding a new Data Format, a dialog allows you to select a specific data format:

globalDataFormat

Then you will be able to edit it from the classic Properties view:

globalDataFormatEditionFromProperties

We have a lot of other global elements that we would like to support, please vote on our JIRA (and/or create your own Feature Request). It will help us to prioritize global configuration element support. You can find already filed JIRA ticket here.

jbds9
Java 8 is required for installing and using JBoss Tools. We still support developing and running applications using older Java runtimes. See more in Beta1 blog.

Installation

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 4.5.2 (Mars.2) but we recommend using the Eclipse 4.5.2 Mars.2 Java EE 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.

http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/mars/stable/updates/

There is also a new installer available for 64-bit Windows. See details in New Developer Studio Platform Installer for Container Based Development section.

What is new?

This release is based on Eclipse Mars.2 and our focus was mainly on OpenShift and Red Hat Container Development Kit tools improvements. Besides that there is a bunch of new features and a lot of fixed bugs. The full list of what is new you can find on this page.

New Developer Studio Platform Installer for Container Based Development

A new installer for 64-bit Windows is now available. This installer is quite different from the good old Developer Studio universal installer. This will help you install Developer Studio with a full development environment for container based development using Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift.

Developer Studio Platform Installer Beta currently works on 64-bit Windows only and is available as a Technology Preview.

It helps to install and configure the following components to work together on your machine:

  • Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio

  • Red Hat Container Development Kit

  • Vagrant

  • VirtualBox

  • OpenJDK

  • Cygwin

  • OpenShift Client (OC) Tools

Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Platform

You can see how this installer works in this short screen cast:

OpenShift 3 and Red Hat Container Development Kit

OpenShift 3 was introduced as a technology preview feature in JBDS 9.0.0.GA. We’re happy to see it graduate to the level of supported feature in this release.

new explorer

New OpenShift Server Adapter for easier and faster deployment, debug mode, integration with Red Hat Container Development Kit and more notable features were added. More than 300 issues and enhancements were also tackled in this version. See the full list of the new OpenShift tooling stuff on New and Noteworthy page.

Docker

Tooling for Docker is available in Eclipse Mars under the Linux tools umbrella. Despite this name, this works on all major developer platforms. It is mirrored on JBoss Tools update site.

docker explorer view

The Docker tools was introduced in Developer Studio 9.0 and has been improved in Developer Studio 9.1:

  • New Docker Machine Support

  • Improved Run Image Launch Configuration

  • TM Terminal Support for Interactive Shells

  • Build Docker Images improvements

More details in New and Noteworthy.

Hibernate 5

Hibernate 5 is now supported. Two new runtime providers for Hibernate were added in this release. Both these new versions can be selected in the relevant wizards.

Forge 3

The included Forge runtime is now 3.0.1.Final. Read the official announcement here.

startup

Automated Error Reporting

With your permission, Eclipse and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio can now inspect errors logged inside the IDE and inform project committers about the issues you’ve experienced. This optional service, called Automated Error Reporting Initiative (AERI), can report issues to both the Eclipse Bugzilla and the JBoss JIRA.

When the first error is logged, you’ll be asked if you’d like to participate in error reporting, which is by default completely anonymous and only happens if an error occurs.

Should you want to configure how the service operates, or provide your email address so that you could be contacted regarding any reports you submit, open Preferences > General > Error Reporting. You can then click Configure Projects…​ to enable or disable reporting to Eclipse or JBoss.

AERI Reporting Enabled

As always, neither Eclipse nor JBoss will use any information unless a user has opted in, nor is there ever any personal information sent unless it is provided on the Preferences page.

What is Next

Our next stop is a major update for Developer Studio which will be based on Eclipse Neon.

Enjoy!
