With the release of Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 10.2, it is now possible to install Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio as an RPM. It is available as a tech preview. The purpose of this article is to describe the steps you should follow in order to install Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.
Red Hat Software Collections
JBoss Developer Studio RPM relies on Red Hat Software Collections. You don’t need to install Red Hat Software Collections but you need to enable the Red Hat Software Collections repositories before you start the installation of the Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.
Enabling the Red Hat Software Collections base repository
The identifier for the repository is rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and rhel-workstation-rhscl-7-rpms on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation.
The command to enable the repository on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is:
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms
The command to enable the repository on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation is:
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-workstation-rhscl-7-rpms
For more information, please refer to the Red Hat Software Collections documentation.
