Exadel Plugins Now Available in Open Source at JBoss Tools
June 27, 2007
by JBoss Team
An important milestone has been reached for the upcoming Red Hat Developer Studio product from Red Hat. We have completed open sourcing the former Exadel Studio Pro plugins from the Red Hat/Exadel Partnership that we announced back at EclipseCon in March.
These plugins, along with the former JBoss IDE plugins, and some new ones (e.g. a Seam plugin) are all available at the JBoss Tools project at jboss.org. You can visit the JBoss Tools project to check out the source code and download the latest versions of the plugins. And, of course, we welcome your participation in the open source project too.
One of the most exciting aspects of our open sourcing Exadel’s plugins at jboss.org is that this marks the first time that developer tools of this caliber have been available in open source. Previously, all the major Eclipse-based tools vendors built their offerings on top of an open source foundation (Eclipse). But, they kept their most desirable features proprietary and sold them to customers. At Red Hat, we believe the best way to help developers is to provide them with a powerful and completely open source set of development tools and platforms.
For developers that want the latest versions of our plugins and like to remain at the tip of our technology, all are welcome to go to JBoss Tools and tailor-assemble your own ideal development environment. For developers that prefer an integrated, supportable and stable development environment that offers great technology, Red Hat has a solution too. Later this summer, Red Hat will be introducing a new product around the JBoss Tools project: Red Hat Developer Studio.
Red Hat Developer Studio will provide a subscription that includes and integrates:
- Eclipse 3.3 from the Eclipse Europa release
- Production-ready versions of the plugins from JBoss Tools and elsewhere - all tested and integrated together along with their dependencies into Eclipse
- The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, which includes production-ready versions of JBoss Application Server, Hibernate and Seam
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- Red Hat Network access for updates
Red Hat Developer Studio will provide one installer that sets up your entire development environment: Eclipse, plugins and JBoss runtime platforms all integrated together. Of course, like all of our products, Red Hat Developer Studio will be 100 percent open source. And it will run on a variety of platforms like Linux and Windows.
So, Red Hat will be offering a variety of solutions for developers. The plugins we have just open sourced at JBoss Tools will provide rich capabilities around many of the other projects at jboss.org. And Red Hat Developer Studio will build upon JBoss Tools to offer a completely integrated and certified open source development environment. Please check out JBoss Tools and let us know what you think.
