Bug fixes

This release of JBoss Tools LiveReload fixes 2 issues reported and fixed with the help of a community member, Pei-Tang Huang:

  • When using LiveReload embedded proxy to preview local files with non UTF-8 characters (such as CJK characters), the returned content would contain '?' characters instead of the expected ones. From now, the embedded LiveReload proxy relies on the Eclipse settings applied on the file (or at the project or workspace level) to read the content.

  • As a side effect, when accessing workspace files with special characters, the value of the "Content-Length" header in the HTTP response was not correctly calculated and Chrome would simply not process the response body, eventually leaving the user with a blank page.

Application Wizard

Create applications with your own source

You can create a new application with your very own source code since JBoss Tools 4.0.

use your own source code

There are openshift quickstarts that require long timeouts because the size of the source code being checked out is very large. Another frequent requirement is that embedded (add-on) cartridges have to be present when the application is created. Adding the cartridges in a 2nd step wont help; the initial application build fails. It was not possible, for example, to create the OpenShift wordpress quickstart at https://github.com/openshift/wordpress-example within JBoss Tools. The update to 4.1.1.Alpha1 fixed this.

OpenShift java client

Embeddables cartridges at application creation time

The openshift-java-client now allows you to provide embeddable cartridges when you create an application. Previously these could only get added once the application was ready. This might be required when you use your own application template source.

Specific timeouts

The openshift-java-client now allows you to use a specific timeout in your operation. This is useful if you know that it takes much longer to create your application with your custom source than it takes for the default. Previously you had to increase the global timeout.
