On behalf of the JBoss Tools and Developer Studio team, I am extremely proud to announce the general availability of the JBoss Tools 4.1.2.Final and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 7.1.1.GA releases.

 

 

JBoss Tools 4.1.2.Final and Developer Studio 7.1.1.GA

One more for the road!

JBoss Tools is a set of plugins for Eclipse that complements, enhances and goes beyond the support that exists for JBoss and related technologies in the default Eclipse distribution.

 

Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio is a fully bundled Eclipse distribution which not only includes the majority of JBoss Tools but also all its needed dependencies and 3rd party plugins allowing for an easy one-click and no-fuss installation.

 

If you are into doing your own bleeding edge Eclipse plugin assembly, JBoss Tools is for you; if you are more into having something that "Just Works" then JBoss Developer Studio is the way to go.

 

Installation

 

If you already have JBoss Tools 4.1.1 or Developer Studio 7.1 installed using 'Help > Update' will give you this release automatically.

 

If you want a new installation, then JBoss Developer Studio is available as a one-download-installer with everything bundled and configured out of the box.

 

You can also install JBoss Developer Studio or JBoss Tools from Eclipse Marketplace via "Help > Eclipse Marketplace..."

 

When installing from Eclipse Marketplace we recommend using a fresh Eclipse 4.3.2 JEE Bundle since then you'll have most of the dependencies pre-installed.

 

Last one before Luna

 

JBoss Tools 4.1.2 and JBDS 7.1.1 are primarily focused on building on top of the latest Eclipse Kepler SR2 release, fixing 30 issues along. We keep on trying to make the life of Angular JS users easier, as you can see below.

This is the last planned release of the JBoss Tools 4.1.x and JBDS 7.1.x streams, based on Eclipse 4.3.x. Cool kids already play with the next milestones for Luna.

 

 

No mo' warnings

 

We backported one of the features we contributed to Eclipse Luna (Milestone 6), that is the ability to ignore non-standard HTML attributes. This is typically needed when developing Angular JS applications as the HTML validator considers Angular JS ng-* attributes as invalid html (which is actually correct since the proper syntax to be 100% compatible with the html5 spec is to use data-ng-*).

 

You can now quick-fix these warning (Ctrl+1) and choose to ignore specific or all similar attributes :

And if you're really into Angular JS, we recommend you try the AngularJS Eclipse plugin. We're currently evaluating it ourselves for inclusion in the next major version of JBoss Tools and Developer Studio.

 

 

Giving Feedback

 

Please don't hesitate to use our forum to ask questions, or, if you have ideas to better improve JBoss Tools / Developer Studio, or found a bug, then open an issue in our issue tracker.

 

What's Next ?

 

We're currently hard at work preparing the next iteration of JBoss Tools (4.2)  and Developer Studio (8.0), targeted at Eclipse Luna. Brace yourself for the upcoming Beta releases in the next 2 to 3 weeks, with more awesome/cool/hip stuff ;-)

Thym Project Proposal

Posted by gercan Mar 11, 2014

When we started working on the Hybrid Mobile (Cordova) tools about a year ago, we predicted that there is a need for a good, open source IDE for developing Cordova based mobile applications. After our initial releases, we started to see the interest to use, build on and contribute to the project. With this interest, the next logical step for us was to take Hybrid Mobile tools to Eclipse Foundation to form an even greater community.


Last week, We have put the Thym (The HYbrid Mobile) project proposal online. Please take a moment to look at the proposal. At this stage, we are collecting the interested parties for the project. If this is a topic of interest for you or your organization or you simply have questions, please let me or the community at large know. Being an interested party on an Eclipse proposal means this is a project that is interesting for you and nothing more.


Once the Thym project is established our activities around mobile will NOT cease to exist on JBoss.org. Our plan is to utilize the Thym project and continue building tools that will make mobile development easier by utilizing projects and technologies such as Aerogear, Openshift etc.


Exciting times are ahead for mobile developers.

 

If you are planning to attend EclipseCon, I will be having a session around Hybrid Mobile Tools. Also, do not miss the other Red Hat sessions.
