  1. JBoss Tools 2 and JBoss Developer Studio released (9 messages)

    JBoss Developer Studio and JBoss Tools 2.0.0.GA have been released. This is the first GA standalone release of our plugins that integrates the Eclipse plugins from what was formerly known as JBossIDE and Exadel Studio into one. The combined works gives you first-class support for JBoss related technology and an unprecedented development environment for JSF and Seam. All the tooling is well integrated with JBoss technologies but we are not limited to that. All the functionality will work standalone and with other application servers. Main feature highlights are:
    • First-class support for JBoss Seam 1.2 and 2.0
    • Visual Page editor for rich editing of (X)HTML, JSP, JSF and Facelets pages
    • Unique JSF and Facelets support
    • JBoss AS server integration
    • Project Archives
    • Hibernate 3 Support
    • JBPM support
    ...and more! All available for Linux, Windows and Mac Getting started The reference documentation are available at docs.jboss.org What's New and Noteworthy plus some screen casts are also avaible on the Seam and Project archives features. Upgrade from previous versions If you are an JBossIDE user then you should be able to easily upgrade. If you used JBossIDE Packaging you can either continue to just run the packaging-build.xml directly or to migrate the related projects to JBoss Tools archiving. We have provided a migration script here and you can read more about the JBoss Tools archiving in a previous blog entry. If you are an Exadel Studio user then you will find an migration guide here. What is the difference between JBoss Developer Studio and JBoss Tools? This release of JBoss Tools is what went into our JBoss Developer Studio which provides an easy-to-install Eclipse-based IDE fully configured and ready to run with the bundled JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. In short JBoss Tools are a set of freely avaiable Eclipse plugins and JBoss Developer Studio adds:
    • An installer
    • Eclipse and Web Tools preconfigured
    • JBoss EAP with JBoss AS and Seam preconfigured
    • 3rd party plugins bundled and configured
    • Access to RHEL and Red Hat Network
    • Access to the JBoss/Red Hat supported software
    It is available for existing support customers or under a 99$ subscription which you can read more about here. Feedback As always your feedback and questions are very welcome in our forum and if you have found an issue or feature request then please report that in our jira instance.

  2. Register via email to download![ Go to top ]

    Is this for real? I mean, I have to register in order to even GET the software? It's a great tool, best out there now I think, but this is not going to help it get more popular - just let us download!
  3. My Bad[ Go to top ]

    Sorry, jumped the gun on my assumptions. I have been using redhat developer studio (RHDS) RC1, which I assume is now released as JBoss Developer Studio. I didn't realize it was a subscription model. I missed that it costs $99.
  4. Re: My Bad[ Go to top ]

    Yes, JBoss Tools is freely available, JBoss Developer Studio is a subscription. The differences are explained above.
  5. JBoss Portal?[ Go to top ]

    what about Portlet creation for JBoss Portal?
  6. Re: JBoss Portal?[ Go to top ]

    We don't have a portlet plugin yet. Contributions very welcome in JBoss tools!
  7. Wasn't this just free??[ Go to top ]

    I downloaded a version not that long back that didn't cost anything. Why is it now $99 or this a different version?
  8. Re: Wasn't this just free??[ Go to top ]

    We always informed that Developer Studio would be for pay/subscription when you downloaded the public beta's. Not sure how we could make that more clear. If you don't want that go and get the free version from jboss.org/tools which does not contain the supported JBoss EAP bundled and RHEL entitlements. With respect to the name then we felt that JBoss Developer Studio would be a better matching name for it.
  9. Re: Wasn't this just free??[ Go to top ]

    You could make it more clear that Developer studio is not free by refraining from calling it "a certified open source development environment". I'm assuming you either mean it's built on open source or can be used to build open source -- so say that. It is obviously not "open source" itself. The language on your site has never been clear on this. That said, this is a great tool and I would consider paying $99 for it.
  10. Congratulations[ Go to top ]

    Congratulations Jboss Team. I have been using Jboss Tools beta and it really demonstrated to be a great tool.
