We’re pleased to announce that JBoss Developer Studio 4 is now available, featuring added support for JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.0 and a technical preview of Java Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI). JBoss Developer Studio is now even easier to access and freely available to download at

Based on Eclipse 3.6 Helios, JBoss Developer Studio 4 features:

  • Support for JSF 2.0 Visual Page Editor

  • A technical preview of CDI functionality supporting JSR-299 for Java EE 6

  • Added support for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1, including the Teiid and Modeshape projects

  • New JAX-WS and JAX-RS testing tools, adding out-of-the-box endpoint testing to increase developer productivity

JBoss Developer Studio 4 is a standalone version and can be used with both JBoss Community projects and JBoss Enterprise Middleware. JBoss Developer Studio -- Portfolio Edition (PE) is still available and unlike the free version, provides access to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5 and several JBoss and Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.
